Very Important Day

Happy Birthday to my sweet baboo Argus! He turns 13 years old today!

Argus came to live with me 6 years ago when Animal Control picked him up on this very day. He was tied to a freeway overpass in Los Angeles (where I was living at the time) at one of the busiest freeway exits in the country (for people in the LA area, it was the Rosemead exit off the 10). He was quite underweight and bald from flea dermatitis. They felt like he should be put to sleep but the greyhound rescue group in the area wanted to get a look at him and 3 weeks later he was at home with me.

This is a difficult picture to look at but keep in mind it was a week after he had been picked up and he was already making a remarkable recovery. I don't mean to dwell on a difficult period of Argus' life but he has overcome a lot and it is worth noting today.

He is spoiled rotten now but don't bother saying how lucky he is to have me because it is entirely the other way around.

We are going to go have a little vanilla ice cream as a birthday treat and many naps and scratches.

Happy 13th boobalah!


And he found the best home ever. Happy birthday to the Argus as well!

Happy birthday, Argus! You've come a long way, baby.
