Boomer was in good shape this morning, ambulating well even without his Rimadyl which I stopped in order to give him his Prednisone for a persistent hotspot.

I spent some extra time before work rubbing his tummy and thanking him for being the man of the house and being our little sentry who sleeps in the exact middle of the house every night on guard duty.

I asked him what he wants for his birthday and he said a vacation from Gladys :p:

He will get that while I'm at work and she has to stay in "her office".

Here is a pic of Boomer bobbing for hotdogs in 2002 when he was 2 years old:



I don't know where the time has gone. Wish I could buy more.

ETA: At bobbing for hotdogs, some of the other dogs were too shy to stick their heads in the bucket; their owners had to pick the hotdogs out and feed them!
Not Boomer - he ate all his hotdogs then barged over to the other buckets and tried to eat theirs too.

Boomer celebrated his big day by spending the day home with his cone on while Gladys stayed in "her office". In the morning and evening, we had extra belly rubs, hugs, treats, brushing, and were all crashed out in bed from all that partying by 10pm! (in other words, a normal day).

Thank you all for helping me celebrate the big day. I hope we can do it all again next year :)
