Happy Birthday Dad....and Franklin

Today is my Dad's birthday. I won't say how old he is, but he is officially eligible for all the senior's discounts now!

Happy Birthday, Dad! There never was a better Dad! Love you, miss you.
(No, my Mom is not short, my Dad is just that tall!)

Much to his delight, I'm sure, Dad shares his birthday with one of his furry grandkids--Franklin is eight today.

Hard to believe that the confident, happy dog currently sprawled on the couch is the same dog as the scared, scrawny mutt who first showed up here almost six years ago. You've come along way, baby!

Franklin sends birthday greetings to his sisters George, Lucy and Gracie who live with Stacie, or allow her to live with them!

God it's that time of year again!?!?! I can't believe they're 8!!! Holy crap. Does Franklin still act like he's about 3? 'Cause his sisters sure do! :)

Happy Birthday Franklin! (and to your dad as well!)

It must be genetic! He acts like a youngster all the time! Right now he's outside barking his fool head off at something only he can see!

It's now Vet Day for the new Pirate girl - and we STILL don't have a Welcome Home post for her.

Hopefully we'll see some *snappies* of her, and hear that she healthy for being a Senior Citizen.
