Thirteen Today

Woody turns 13 today.  In honor of his special day, I thought I would tell you the 13 Reasons I Love Woody.


IMG_50601.  He loves to walk.  Even though he’s 13, you’d never know it on our walks.  People are often surprised when I say how old he is.  He’s a spritely dude.

IMG_00162.  He adapts really well to other dogs.  I often take care of friends and family’s dogs and Woody is very welcoming.

4.  He always comes when he hears the sound of my spoon clinking against my breakfast bowl.  He gets to lick the spoon.  01537d33170cadfbf6283f0dc6d4188fde571888df

6.  He has one blue eye.  It’s his signature.

7.  He howls a doggie opera at the sound of an ice-cream truck.

9.  He is my own personal alarm clock.  I can count on being woken between 5:15am and 6am every day.  This requires some adjustment with daylight savings.

12.  He is such a gentle soul.  And a constant source of calm.

We do love him and am so glad he came to stay with us.  Happy Birthday Woody!!!!






Happy Birthday Woody.  Thanks for being a great big brother.  We ruff you!
