Thanks Dad,for the yummy cake (rosette) :) I remember well the day we met 28 years ago today. A few people were walking down the center isle between the 2 rows of cages at Bucks County SPCA. It was a cold January day,so all the dogs were inside. You walked past my cage and I briefly licked your finger as you stuck it thru my cage. I`m sorry to say that it was only a "lukewarm" lick as you continued on past me as so many others had done in the 2 months that I had been there. BUT THEN YOU CAME BACK! The kennel attendant opened my cage door and handed you the leash. I pulled you frantically down the corridor towards the door. PLEASE,LET`S GET OUT OF HERE! We went outside on the grass where we practiced some simple commands. Then after filling out the adoption papers,we were off in your car. I was thrilled to be going home with you! My first walk at Washington Crossing State Park that day is forever etched into my memory. It was the first of our many adventures together. We shared many day hikes in the Pocono mountains and I was with you on our first trips out West. When you first began overnite backpacking,I was thrilled to share the experiences with you. In 1994,we took our very first Alaska trip together. Thanks,Dad,for all the fun times. I know that there are more to come!
