Happy Birthday to my little man, Mr. Winston!!! I can't believe so much time has passed. You joined our family in 2007 after growing up in New York City. You were an only pet, and came to live with us with 3 other dogs, 3 cats and 2 parrots. You came for a weekend visit, and it worked out so well that you never left. You immediately just started running, chasing the other dogs and squirrels. You've always loved walks, and still do. You said goodbye to Molly, Georgie and the 3 cats, but welcomed NeeNee and Lily into the family. You also moved from California to Oregon. So much change in just 5 years. You've been pretty adaptable but certainly let us know what you are feeling. You are such a talker!!! And you're a smart one! Always watching, planning and sneaking around. One of the things you always do when company comes to visit, is find someone who doesn't know we don't throw balls in the house. BOL! So much fun.
You are in incredible shape, all muscle. Every time a vet sees you, they mention that fact. Wrestling the other dogs seems to be your specialty. You're are a little stinker though. You do love to tear up Lily's toys! Remember the time you tore up a toy, and then swallowed it along with peanut shells that the parrots threw on the floor? That was our biggest health scare with you, but you made it through just fine.
You survived your training with Uncle Matty. You didn't want any part of it, and protested! But you have beautiful manners, at least when you want to!!! You do have that stubborn schnauzer in you. But now we live in a rural area, and you can walk off leash. You are the best walker out of the bunch, always within eyesight and always listening to commands.
You're a special little man. You've always been so independent, but the older you get the more you cuddle with me. I love that about you, never shy about asking for loving.
It's raining so hard this week, but maybe we'll have a break and we can do something special! We always do on your birthday, because you're such a special little dog.
Happy Birthday sweet Winston!!!
Happy Barkday Winston!
We hope the rain stops and you get to go out and play for your very special day!
Glad you had a great birthday Winston
