Happy Birthday Boomer! Today you are four years old.
Thank you for being my shadow. Waiting patiently beside me in the kitchen, napping by the office in the window or resting on the deck while we swing on the porch.
Thank you for being so smart. Even non "dog people" compliment us on how well behaved you are - you make us so proud we could burst!
Thank you for bearing with us when we forget to fill up your food and water sometimes (never for too long!).
Thank you for being our welcoming committee when we have people over. And always being gentle with the kids. They could tug on you all day and you'd just wag your tail.
Thank you for being excited about the little things, a little treat, when we say "walk", taking a drive or even getting up in the morning. If only we could all find the joy in the little things like you do.
Happy 4th Birthday, Boomer!!
