Happy Birthday, Indy.

Here is where we can discuss canine cancers and treatment options to create a support system for those dealing with the disease.

Today, you are nine years old!

I remember the day we took you home from the vet. You were a tiny hairless ball of fat belly and little spindly bent legs and ENORMOUS worried green eyes.

I remember giving you all your meds and taking you into the bedroom for a nap with me. When we woke up and you stretched then smiled at me, you stole my heart forever. I never knew dogs could smile like that.

Today is a fitting date for your birthday. You are my silly man. You never fail to make me laugh, even when I don't want to or can't.

Happy birthday, fat boy. And here's to many more!

And if your Mother doesn't finally buy you a new ball to play with outside, you can come live with Aunt Joyce.

Wow, I was just reading BadRap's blog and came across this:


(from: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art24632.asp )
The Fool represents the "everyperson" - the essence of us all embarking on the journey of life, self-discovery and mastery. He is the innocent, the whimsical, the "inner child" mixed with the "inner sage" that lives down deep inside of us all. He faces life and his journey unafraid, trusting, the perfect example of total and utter faith that all will be well, that every experience has a deep essential meaning. He trapses along the crags of life, regardless of any hidden peril or disappointment, his eyes are turned to the heavens and he knows that he will be kept safe and whole along his travels.....

I've never heard a better description of Indy's personality. Waaaay back when we (at the vet clinic) saw Indy and tried to figure out a birthday for him, we joked that April Fool's Day would be perfect. Little did I know, LOL. :noWay:

Happy b-day big guy! (Ask for an ice cream cone!)

You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day, tomorrow doesn't look good either.
