Technically, yesterday was the big day but much of the house was getting new carpet so everything went on hold. But in our family, we’re okay with birthday weeks!
Tanner is now an only child. He’s had to share the spotlight ever since he arrived in 2007.
First with The Floridian’s two cats while she was in school; plus Army Wife/Guy/Peanut’s menagerie of three cats and a dog when they lived with us. Yes, all we needed was a few clowns to round out the circus.
So while I’m sure he misses the company, he certainly doesn’t miss sharing the attention.
Tanner is four years old for his birthday week. While keeping him brushed is definitely a challenge, I still believe Golden Retrievers are just about the best breed of dog on the planet.
We’re going to get him a big, fluffy pillow bed to go with the new carpet for his present. Shhh, it’s a surprise.
