Happy birthday Bob!
Today is Bob's fourth birthday. He's been part of our pack for only 23 days (since January 18).
Bob is a terrific dog. He's mellow, soft and cuddly, and REALLY responds to his name. We're pretty sure that he understands that he is part of Pumpkin's pack, and that he is the #2 dog.
However, we're not too sure that Pumpkin feels the same way. To Pumpkin, Bob might just be the other animal who showed up one day.
But the two dogs get along well and Bob's presence seems to keep Pumpkin calm when both Rik and I are away from the house.
