Hobie Birthday To You!

Ok, so we don't know Hobie's real birthday because we adopted him.  He came from the hard cold streets of Tennessee.  We adopted him when he was estimated to be somewhere between 2 and 3 years old.  We do know the date that he came to live with us last September.  So we are considering that his new "birthday". 

Because we adopted him from a dog foster program we had to answer a bunch of surveys and questions to make sure we'd give him a good home.  One of the questions was...
What kind of personality traits are you looking for in a dog?
I responded...
"We are not looking for a super hyper dog. We want one that we can play with and walk but that is also ok laying around watching tv with us."
(I think most of that answer stems from my laziness and love of TV)

That is pretty much exactly what we got as you can see from Hobie's time with us.

Watching his favorite Soap, The Bold and the Beautiful

The day he got his first rope bone

Maybe it's time for a new rope bone

Foot belly rub per his request

 
So anyway we will be celebrating Hobie's "birthday" this week.  Maybe with some Dog Fro-Yo from Feeney's (yeah they actually have that).  And sorry if you hate dogs or hearing about people's dogs or looking a bunch of pictures of dogs.  I used to think it was weird too before I had my own dog.

Hoppy Birthday Hobie! I can't believe it's been a year since Hobie found his forever home. Do I sound like some weird adopt a pet person. Maybe...but that's just because I want to adopt a dog. Maybe some day...

PS - Love the last picture of Hobie. He looks like he's thinking "yeah I know I'm cute but please get the camera out of my face"

Dude, I love looking at other people's dogs. And we also do birthday stuff for our animals..it's a sickness. Hobie is so cute...does he need a girlfriend? He can be my dog, Truffles, online lover.

Hobie is awesome. Remember when we first got him and I took him for like 3-4 walks a day? Thank goodness we got him to go to the bathroom in the backyard. Also, in the last picture Hobie is trying to hide so he doesnt get kicked out of the bed. And is this a mommy-blog post?

He's very cute, and seems terribly smart, however, I think I would have more respect for him if his favourite soap was General Hospital...I'm just sayin'... :)
This was fun!

Happy Birthday Hobie!!!

I love looking at other people's animal pictures, so I don't think it is weird at all. I'll be doing the exact same thing in a couple weeks time for my cat's "1st birthday".

Awww Hobie B-day Hobie! I don't think it's strange how much you love your puppy. I still have pictures of my dog up around my house, and when I moved he couldn't come with me, and that was almost 3 years ago. I get Christmas cards from him and his "new family" every year.
