Happy Birthday Odie!

We decided that June 1st was Odie's birthday. He is 15 or 17. We don't know. He was in a shelter for six years after his elderly first owner died. A couple adopted him but returned him after less than a year when they got pregnant. He remained in the shelter for another three years until we adopted him four years ago.

He is Corgi-ish. He is sweet and flatulent, has a potbelly, short crooked legs and an overbite. He potty-trained Spot, taught him how to walk on a leash and how to wait his turn. He makes funny noises and refuses to lose weight. When he walks, one ear flaps up and down and the other ear flaps down and up. He has a deep, sing-song bark that he rarely uses and he is utterly loyal.

Happy birthday, Odie Old Man Tubby Mookieface Bump Bumpity! I love you so much.

*This is a picture of him all dirty, 2 hours after the groomers. So happy.

He is obviously completely wonderful! And so are you for inviting him into your family. Huzzah for shelter dogs!

What a cutie. I love animals and if I wasn't so self centered, I'd get a dog.

He waited long but now he's with a nice family who will love and care for him.

He's wonderful. He's my Rock of Gibralter(sp), my dawg, my totes bros before hos pojo. He sits on the front porch for hours and watches the neighborhood go by.

The drug dealers call him "OG". He growls real low and says, "Tell your story walkin', yo."
