Not so Wordless Wednesday...happy birthday!

He is the most friendly...
A tad scruffy...with a dash of goofiness.
 He is a deep thinker...a sensitive lad.
The kindest of souls.

Throughout the past 9 years Tom and I have walked hundreds of miles with him.

We've swam across oceans and back.
Many winter days, we have come home to be by the fire
Summer days we've played with the kids and found comfort in the shade of the apple trees.
Sometimes he looks at me and I wonder what he sees.
In times of sadness, and solitude, he has been there.
Never to question anything.
He's The Dude.
Happy 9th Birthday Bud!
(and to brother Frank as well!)

Hi Kerry. Happy Birthday Griffin! I apologize for not visiting more often. I seem to be so busy these days but maybe it's more because I work all day in front of a computer. I'm so glad I looked in today. He's such a beautiful dog. Blackie would love him! xxxb
