Age of My Dog: 10 years
My Dog’s Birthday or Gotcha Day (or month): January 29, 2003
About My Dog’s Birthday: We have 4 rescues. Elvy is definitely the “celebration” dog. He loves special treats, which he shares with his step siblings, and the squeak toys that come after we sing Happy Birthday to him. He is a love and a blessing! This picture is the “after party pic”–just him and the oversized multi squeaker toy he got for his big 10th. And many more………
For rescues only: how I got my dog: We stopped at a fish aquarium store to buy accessories for my son’s tank. In the back of the store, there was Elvy, locked in a bird cage, sad and scared. We immediately asked for an excuse for this and were told that the owner’s friend doesn’t want “it” any more so they are trying “to get rid of it”. From that moment, he was ours and we took him to his forever home!
