here. Today is a day of celebration at Poupounette Central because it is both Tommy's 4th birthday and my own xxth birthday. I mention the latter because it is the fact that he was born on the same day as me that made me enquire about Tommy's litter. It is a joy to celebrate this day with him.

I know that all of the Chans and Vidock will join me in celebrating our prince. Tommy is every potential dog owner's dream. He is sweet, gentle, energetic, loving, well-behaved and never aggressive. He loves his kitty siblings and looks after all of them, and he is respectful around his big little brother, Vidock. I can take him anywhere with me and know he will always be a perfect gentleman.

In the last four years, Tommy has gone from this:

To this:

We are fortunate in that we get to see his family regularly. We were up in Normandy last night for the official litter birthday party. We would like to pay a special tribute to Tommy's gorgeous Mama, Minnie:

If you were wondering about any kind of resemblance, here is Tommy first thing this morning:

And here is Minnie this morning:

We had a lot of fun celebrating in Normandy with Mama Minnie , Grandmama Katie, Aunt Harry, Cousin Cora, sisters Sophie, Elsie and Lydia and niece Emily, and also with nephews George and Charlie, and of course Tommy's wonderful breeders, Ms. A and Mr. R. Here are some of the girls ready to go to the party:
