And now SEVEN!!!
Once upon a time, I was the baby of the family, and now, hard to believe, now I am the oldest!!! I have had a great life here with all the Angels and now Misty and Timber. I am so very grateful for my wonderful family. I would like to share a few photos, one from each of my six years with The OP Pack.
Here I am as a young pup with Ms. C. We are pretty sure she was only 3 or 4 in this photo.
Me and the Angels - Ciara, Thunder, and Phantom - they were really my best pals ever.
Mom says I always took good care of Ciara after she started to have her seizures. She was so very special to me. She helped me overcome a lot of my fears on our walks together, and we had some great fun playing together.
Keeping watch together on the deck.
And then I became a BIG brother to a pesky sister - Misty.
And less than one year later, she invited her brother from another litter to come join us - that's Timber.
So now we are a happy pack of three. So I say let the party begin.
Thanks to our dear friends from North Carolina, Madi and her sweet Mom, for sending me this festive birthday card. Thanks, Madi and Mom.
From Mom - Happy Birthday, Lightning - my BIG boy with the very BIG heart!!!
