Happy 12th Birthday Curtis!

Twelve years (plus six weeks) ago I was at the Glendale pound “helping” a friend find a dog when this sweet little puppy kept staring at me with his baby brown eyes. I knew nothing about dogs and thought it would be a good idea if he came home with me. We stopped off at the pet store and bought some food and a dog crate and then when we got home he had diarrhea all over my apartment and cried like a baby through the night. Since then he’s been to 33 states, made a bunch of friends (mostly human), got his own facebook page and survived cancer.

Happy birthday buddy! xo

    that day in Glendale was a lucky day for The Curtis and you…on top of everything he is a good sport to wear the birthday hat….as a birthday card given to Ray by one of his dog friends says, “Sniff what you like, scratch where it itches, and if it tastes good eat it!” lots of love and Happy Birthday to The Curtis….from Terrie, Ray, Hannah, Chi Chi and Katie….
