Birthday Boy Tommy!

#1 here. On August 21st each year, we celebrate two birthdays, mine and Tommy's. The fact that we were born on the same day is what made me visit the litter of puppies in the first place, and I am sure it has created an incredible bond between us.

Today, Tommy is eight years old. The past years have been full of joy for both of us. I can safely say that nobody could wish for a better companion, kinder, more generous, sweeter or more loving. He is also the kitties' hero, protector and comfort bringer.

It is always difficult to pick just a few photos to represent a life so rich and a dog so handsome!, But here is a portrait from each year plus one taken each year with one of his kitties. Enjoy!

  10. Happy Birthday Tommy! You are the most wonderful dog we can imagine. Not only are you an incredibly handsome boy but you have a beautiful personality and a beautiful soul. Our Mum says she has never felt about a dog the way she feels about you. We know that superior breeding has something to do with it but we know that your relationship with #1 has a lot to do with it too! Happy Birthday to you, #1. Hope you and your wonderful Tommy have a splendid day and the best year yet.

  11. Happy birthday to #1 and a very special dog, Tommy! I am in awe of all these photos! Each one is special and I couldn't pick a favorite. Tommy, you're so smart and loving you get along with everyone. When you're not snuggling, you love to run, jump, and play. I've never seen a dog with so much personality. #1 takes excellent care of you and you're almost always included in #1's activities. Both of you are lucky to have each other and even share the same birth date. Have a super fun-filled day!!

  12. Everyone should be so fortunate to be able to pick out such a magnificent birthday present as Tommy!!! Happy Birthday to both of you and many more to come.
