Happy 9Th Birthday, Merlin!

Recommended Posts

Today is my special wizard's 9th birthday! I can't believe it! I adopted him when he was 2... how far we've come together, sweetie.

Those of you who know Merlin and have shared some of the worry and stress I've experienced over his numerous medical problems won't be surprised to know that the wizard is till goofy, opinionated and the hands-down the most impertinent dog I have ever met :lol: Despite having been slowed down by his arthritis, despite being plagued by his IBD, and despite the fact that he has suffered three seizures, his spirit remains indomitable - as is fitting for a wizard of his stature, of course ;)

 

These days his favorite pastime is sleeping. He could sleep virtually 95% of the time and he'd be happy. His all-time favorite thing to do is nap in the sun :wub: and today we are going to break all the strict diet rules and give him some peanut butter spread over ice, which he absolutely adores (both the ice and the peanut butter).

 

The one thing that seems to have changed more than any other over the years - in addition to his beautiful white face, of course :blush - is his affection for his brother Sagan. He loves to be around him these days. He is always cuddling with him, makes a huge fuss and statues if DH is walking him and I go elsewhere with Sagan (Sagan is younger and in better health and needs longer walks); and when Sagan had a dental last week, we were so touched to watch him greet his brother at the door. Merlin was beside himself with joy at the sight of him. :wub: Who would have thought that he would have become so fond of the brother he used to view with a certain disdain :lol

 

:b-day Happy Birthday my sweet Merlin! I love you so much! :confetti

Happy birthday, sweet Merlin! Keep up the cheeky impertinence (and the brotherly love), and enjoy the peanut butter and ice treat! It doesn't get much better than this, does it? Wishing you many many many many happy returns!
