When I was a kid, I remember my asking my parents for a dog. I believe my dad said something like: "Uhhh... NO WAY." Then he proceeded to list every reason why: "They SMELL, they BARK, they make a mess, you have to wake up in the middle of the night to walk them..." And a cat? - well let's just say I had a better chance of getting a dog.
Years later, after I'd moved to Boston, I got Timmy - and well wouldn't you know he turned a new leaf. I never thought I'd see the day but this next image is almost directly from a photograph:
Today is his birthday- HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD! And tomorrow is Father's Day - HAPPY FATHER'S DAY! And I'll be seeing you all in another life because after this post, he might just kill me :)
