Happy Birthday Moses
You could have shown me these photos a year ago and I would have punched you in the throat for suggesting it would come to this. I never would have imagined we would backslide to become a Dog Family.
Everyone knows a family falls into one of two categories. You either love dogs or don't get them. We were the latter and we loved mocking Dog-people behind their backs.
Sure, we would nod in interest at their dog story, but when they turned their head, we would chortle a laugh in our shirt sleeve. Oh the satisfaction of clucking your tongue in disgust when a human had to touch one of these filthy four-legged creatures.
But that has all changed. Non-Dog people, get ready to mock.
We got Moses as a pup a year ago to give the kids a distraction as we transitioned to a new culture, house, and friends in Mexico. It worked. Problem is, he stuck and now we love him.
He is the best-behaved, most docile, lovable, gentle, and obedient dog we have ever known. And he is ours!
Happy Birthday Moses! In just one year, you've won the hearts of some pretty stiff critics.
(Did I hear some tongue clucking?)
