A Cute Dog with a Birthday

It's hard to believe, but this week is Herbie's 4th birthday. My dog-child is growing up. Plus, he's been with me for three whole years now! As a four year old, he is still obsessed with holding hands, bully sticks, and outsmarting the mean black cat who lives next door.

I've said this before, but Herbie is a rescue who is scared of everything. I'll never forget the time early on when he jumped about five feet upon encountering a Dandelion. He had been kept in an outdoor closet and never introduced to anything. Herb still has a hard time with other dogs, but he wants desperately to be their friend. He watches our neighbor Scooter out the window like he is searching for a long-lost brother.

In honor of Herbie's birthday and other dogs who need our help, check out Woofstock next weekend from the Greenville Humane Society; once you buy a ticket, you get unlimited beer samples from local breweries! Herbie's a little too high-strung to go along, but it would be really fun to take a dog. :)


  1. B turns 5 this December! It's so hard to believe that I've had him four years. And he's still scared of everything, too. He ran away from his shadow yesterday! =(

  2. Happy Birthday Mr. Herbie! I hope to meet you soon. I bet we'd be great friends. I've never ever met a dog I didn't go absolutely bonkers over. You are very cute. Love, Franklin.

  3. I love both of your dogs. :) I wish I could see them in person!
