Happy Birthday to the Boys

today (2)

Happy Birthday to my doggies, Sir Topham Hat (below) and Mr. Picklechips (above). They were born at the San Francisco SPCA eleven years ago on July 1. I adopted the last two of the litter, who have been with me since they were seven weeks old.

They’ve lived in San Francisco, CA, San Rafael, CA, Ithaca, NY, San Diego, CA, San Clemente, CA, and now back to the San Francisco Bay Area. And if you count gestation, they were growing in their momma’s tummy in Oakland, CA. The’ve crisscrossed the U.S. a number of times, and even visited Canada for the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies conference years ago.

Who wants a squeaky ball? Who? Who? Who wants a squeaky ball?
