Dearest Ed, what a beautiful dog you are! And what a beautiful story your dear Mommie has to tell about you! You have been with her through thick and thin, haven't you. You and she take superb care of each other and have all along. Thank you for sharing those terrific photos with us! You are so pretty and look so happy in them all. They show you in many different activities and moods, and it's so nice to see you with your dear doggie pals and human parents. That wedding picture is priceless! You and all your dear family members love each other very much, don't you. What a delightful love-filled home you share!
Congratulations, darling Ed, on being chosen today's Dog of the Day! We hope you and Gracie and all your family and friends are enjoying a fine celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite games and treats. We know Bubba Angel is rejoicing with you at the Rainbow Bridge!
