Happy Birthday Truman.
BTW - "Truman" is now a part of the vernacular in our household and at the company my husband works for. Anytime a very large black lab or large black dog is described, it is called a "Truman".
At a party a few weeks ago, I over heard this conversation between the Arborist & the Tree crew and had to laugh.
"Hey, did you guys finish that job with the pin oak, tulip and sumac that had to come down?"
"Si Amigo. We get dat one big tree down, no problem. But hey! You not tell us they had a Truman, man. Chibo almost crap himself when dat big dog came to grab a big steeeeck, man. Dat damn Truman want to play trow da steeeck with a damn branch, man."
