In October of 2006, my family gathered to celebrate my mother’s 9th birthday. My niece hadn’t had her annoying rescue for very long, but he made it into the photo album my thoughtful cousin Andrea made.
Little did I know that ten years later that annoying beast would be my treasured heart-dog and I would be thrilled and tearful to find an image of him as a young guy.
Your mother was very young!
That’s my niece and her father.
Oh I meant that you said it was your mother’s 9th birthday
