Happy Birthday Shane.....

 You came to us as a senior, but, with plenty of spunk and energy.
You also came with lots of love handles!
You were 10 years young when you allowed us to rescue you!

 You showed us the true meaning of patience and understanding.
You taught us the true meaning of "faithful".
Your fear disappeared and your true personality shone.

Being the gentleman that you are, you tolerated us bringing this youngster into the pack and showed her how to respect her pack leaders and to give lots of love...

 Finn is still your best buddy and even though you don't play with him like you did at first, you always make sure he's around and behaving.

You've aged with the grace you deserve even though you have lost most of your hearing and eyesight.
You're still always up for a bum rub and an ear scratch.

Thanks for being part of our pack.

Happy Birthday #15


  1. What a lovely tribute Shane, and I'm sure if he could write something to you, it would include a thank-you for making these 'golden years' the best ones!!

  2. I love the second to last picture in this post. They have posed beautifully!

  3. Wow- fifteen! Lucky you.

    Happy Birthday Shane!

  4. What a photogenic family you have! Happy Birthday Shane, and may you have many more to come, plus all the bum scratches you could ever desire.

  5. Happy Birthday Shane. Sissy is in the same shape; puffy. I don't know how old Sissy is because I just rescued her in November 2009. She is so good and sweet. Shelties are so precious.

  6. Aw, happy birthday to a beautiful dog who was so very lucky to find a family not only loving enough to adopt a shelter dog, but to open their hearts to a dog with "some mileage" on him. Those are gorgeous pictures and story warms my heart. :-)

  7. Wow, he's beautiful. And so photogenic!

  8. Happy birthday! He is beautiful. Lovely photos.
