View Full Version : Happy Birthday Earle

Our last puppy turns 7 today! Earle is one of only two dogs that we've owned since puppyhood. He was about nine weeks old when he arrived.
Such a little sweetie! The first time he met Muskwa, he got flipped on his back and growled at. That pretty much set the tone for Earle's life--he is the boss of no one and quite happy that way. He's never met a dog he didn't like, rarely met a person he didn't like. When a new dog arrives here, they always meet Earle first. He goes on playdates with our neighbor's dog, Ally. Ally is mourning the loss of her lifelong canine companion and seeing Earle cheers her up. My life would be so much simplier with a yard full of dogs just like Earle. He's just easy!
Lounging on the weekend. He's had some health problems recently, but I think they are under control again. The weight from his thryoid problems is slowing coming off and his happy, silly personality has returned.

My bridge kid, Hoodoo, would have been 7 today too. He was Earle's littermate. I'm sure he's found someone at the bridge to feed him extra treats today!

Happy Birthday boys!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY EARLE!!! You sure were a precious puppy, and you are one good looking boy now. Have a great birthday sweetie, with lots of love and treats from all your friends two and four-legged.
Enjoy your party at the bridge Hoodoo.

Glacier, you said you have only had two from puppyhood were you referring to Earle and Hoodoo, or Earle and one of your other dogs? (Earle is Muskwa's son, right?)

Earle and Muskwa. I didn't meet Muskwa until he was 7 months old, but Stuart got him when he was 11 weeks from a breeder. Muskwa went back to his breeder when he was a couple years old and produced Earle's litter. (it was part of the purchase contract). Stuart let me pick a puppy as my wedding gift. Earle picked me. He crawled away from his littermates and starting nursing on my fingers when he was a couple weeks old.

We knew the people who had adopted Hoodoo and when it became clear that they were not taking care of him, we took him. He was almost a year old.
