Six Candles

Photobucket



Today is Rembrandt's Birthday!


He is 6

Or 42.


Six years ago, Chrissy and Chloe wanted a puppy. I wasn't too keen on the idea because, with Chrissy in college and Chloe only 6 years old, I knew who would be doing all the feeding, walking, and grooming.

Me.

To appease them, and make a fun family day, I said we could "just look".
Don't kid yourself, there is no such thing as "just looking" for golden retriever pups. It's like walking into See's Candies . . . . . if you are sucked inside, you WILL buy something.

We did, and I am glad.

2003 - Chloe & Rembrandt watching TV



Rembrandt is a member of the family and at 6 (42),
he still looks like a big stuffed toy.

Two years ago, we rescued Rusty from the pound. He was found crippled and ill, wandering the countryside. We took him home and nursed him back to health. The vet estimates his age at 6 years, so, without knowing what day he was actually born, we celebrate his birthday with Rembrandt's.

This post is the sum total of the celebration

WOO HOO !


. . . . and I am the one who feeds, walks and grooms them both.

that's ok.

they love me best.

That first picture is HILARIOUS! Their hats, and the look on their faces. Rusty almost looks a little tipsy... you know... from all the celebration :-)

I was referring to the picture of Chloe and Rembrandt but when I scrolled back up ... the one of Rembrandt and Rusty definitely does:)I'd buy them both♥
