Today is also Cowboy's birthday (observed). I rescued him from a shelter in Tennessee in October of 1999, and the vet told me then he thought he was around a year old. So, I decided a Halloween birthday was appropriate for a dog with vampire teeth, and I guess that makes him about 8 years old now. My little fellow is getting old. And truth be told - he rescued me. Happy Birthday, World's Sweetest and Most Adorable Dog.
