Sunday was a very special day at our house. Our adopted Rottweiler, Axl, celebrated his 10th birthday and we had a special birthday party. I baked a full-size meatloaf and covered it with a mash potato icing and a candle. Everyone enjoyed the feast. (Next up is my baby Ruff who will be 5 years old next month.)
And wearing his digitally enhanced birthday hat.
We adopted Axl two years ago in August when he was almost 8 years old. He was trained to work as a service dog and had lived for most of his life with a handicapped woman until her house burned down in Akron, Ohio. When I heard that he needed a new home I jumped at the chance to adopt him and he turned out to be the most wonderful Rottweiler I have ever known. As many pictures on this blog show, he became my wife's constant companion.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AXL.
