Happy Birthday, Bailey!

The Beast turns 5 today. 

Well, not technically. He's a good deal older than half a decade. But five years ago on this day, he joined our family.

Untrained, skeletal, and newly castrated, he was a mess. He peed in the living room within ten minutes of getting him home. 

He was also desperate to please, adoringly eager, and so, so sweet. 

After months and months of searching, we'd found our dog. 

So in honor of his homecoming, we've always celebrated today as his birthday. 
Happy birthday, Bub. Our little family wouldn't be the same without you. 

Are you in need of a labrador [And really, who isn't]? PLEASE check out this website and take a peek at all the wonderful pups that need homes. We have nothing but good things to say about Labrador Rescuers, it's a wonderful organization and they do a tremendous job of finding homes for thousands of stray and abandoned labs. Plus, they usually have puppies!!
