Somebody's 4 Today!

Did you guess that it is Oreo?

What a banner year for my little rock star. After months of rehab, he recovered from a torn CCL, and went on to win two first place ribbons in the DOCNA national championships finals. Not to mention all the little gains he's made in confidence along the way.

Happy Birthday to my crazy, freaky, black and white, cookie dog. You are a star Oreo.

The ending of this video has Misty running around in the snow, which is footage from last January. Unfortunately, Misty no longer chases Oreo, no matter how much Oreo tries. I'm so glad I have video of them playing though, because it always makes me smile.

The good news is Misty has been doing quite well the past few days. I think she may have even gained a pound or two.

Thanks for sharing you and Oreo's year with us. We've enjoyed being able to read and sometimes watch your adventures!

Isn't it amazing how quickly the years go by? I'm sure if you're anything like me, you're sitting there wondering where 4 years went so fast.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR, SWEET OREO, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU.....and of course I am singing it!!! What a fantastic video, you did such a beautiful job for a beautiful soul.....so glad you got some good video of Misty, it reminds us all to not put things off and enjoy what we can when we can, a very good lesson for all of us. Four is such a fantastic age, that always seems the age when things really come together and dogs really do some exciting things, can not wait to see what the next year holds for Oreo! (((HUGS))) and hope you get some great treats today!!!!
