If dogs are 7 times their age in people years, my little friend is turning 49 today. Seven people years ago, an earnest Beagle was born in a barn (not quite a manger) and was destined to claim us as his forever family. While we've battled him day-in and day-out on issues like begging and behavior, he is our little grouch, our grumpy old man and one of our favorite things in life.
What is it they say? "The best things in life aren't things?"
Here's to seven more. Happy Birthday Oscar!
(Oscar chose to have his birthday portraits taken this year by his favorite cupboard (the one where his food is kept).)
Oscar would also like it mentioned that on 12.12.12, the last numerical "three-peat" for nearly 100 years, he is turning "Lucky Number 7." He would like you to know that this isn't a coincidence. He is just that "once-in-a-lifetime."
