As I type this very post, Tripp sits at my feet; he slobbers and sighs. I guess this is his subtle reminder that I'm being an egomaniac. Oops, I forgot to mention that someone else is celebrating a birthday today at Lil' Puna. Happy Birthday, Tripp! He turns nine today, and he's as lively as ever! I wish you could see the way he sprightly climbs our hill. Gosh, I love this dog! When we considered adopting him almost four years ago, it was the moment I saw his birth date listed on the AKC paperwork that I knew it was meant to be. We loaded him in the truck, and I promised him a lifetime of milk bones, tennis balls, and a celebratory scoop of ice cream on his birthday. I'm proud to say that I've upheld my end of the bargain. Please pardon the following corny statement: Tripp, you're Golden!
While Tripp and I bask in all the birthday pomp and circumstance, take a gander at some of my favorite moments from the past few weeks -- the details that make this life a whole lot sweeter.
