To my pubby boy, mama's lil Bear:
You are 4 years old now. I can hardly believe it. I remember when Aunt L. called me--She woke me up. She told me she was at a flea market, in Indiana, and asked if I wanted an eskie pup. She said there was a boy & a girl. I said "sure, get me the girl" but she was already taken so I said "then get me the boy" and she did. This was on a Tuesday morning and she wasn't coming home to Michigan until Thursday. I said I would come by on Friday to get you. Well, I couldn't wait. I got off of work at midnight and went to her house to get MY PUBBY BOY! You were such a little ball of white fluff, only 9 weeks old. I fell in love immediately.
I still hadn't come up with a name for you. I wanted to meet you before naming you. I wanted something unique--Sorry about settling on lil Bear. Aunt L. had been calling you Kevin (after the little white pomeranian in the movie THE PROPOSAL). I REFUSED to call you Kevin and I was pushed to come up with a name. I have to say the name does fit though. When you growl, you sound like a baby bear.
You had only been with me for a few days and we went on vacation. It was you & me & Aunt L. & her husband & Schotzy, & your cousin & Dixie. You & Schotzy became best furriends. Schotzy is 6 months older than you and she used all the tricks on you that Dixie had used on her. When you played TUG, Shotzy would shake you off. She would hold the toy in her mouth and turn sideways. Schotzy had a lot of fun until you grew up a bit and used all of her tricks against her. BOL
Oh and the poor kitties! You wanted to play with them so badly. Unfortunately you didn't know how to play with kitties and the kitties did NOT want to play with a pubby. You used to terrorize Ingen by chewing on her head. Baby learned how to navigate throughout the house without touching the floor, because you would always chase her. Mr. Spot taught you to have a little respect for cats--he slapped you silly. Fortunately, he didn't have claws.
You were much better with kitties, by the time Novi came. The first time you two met, Novi hissed. You didn't do anything to him. You just looked at him. It only took him a couple of days before he stopped being afraid of you.
You were an awesome big brofur for Novi after Ingen got lost. You & Novi are buddies. You mouth him but never hurt him and chase him. Now if only you would understand about "snuggling". Novi would really like to snuggle with you but you are a little too big to sit on him. BOL
You are 4 now. A BIG BOY! You have learned to make furriends and love going to the dog park. You still love your ball & playing with the frisbee and most of all you still love your mama. I LOVE YOU, my Bear! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
