Garth's 11 today! Happy Birthday G-Man!

Garth is 11 today! This is quite a milestone for him given the background we know about him. He broke his right hock in 2002 on the track in his 71st race (he won the 70th as A grade). He broke it again at his last owner's house in 2007. There is a scar on his tummy - obviously ingested something that didn't agree with him.

I looked up his age in peep years on the Dogs Rule website. He's 82 in peep years! He's doing quite well for a gent of that age. We haven't decided what we have in store for him tomorrow, but it will be a small affair at home with some frozen yogurt and a peanut butter stuffed KONG. He's quite OUR distinguished gentleman. We love you Garfie!

What a wonderful picture of the birfday boy!

Garth...the sun shone brighter and birds sang with gusto the day you were born...the world is a better place because of you...and all the people you touch with your heart!

The scar on his tummy was from when he ate lots and lots of red mulch.....

The birthday boy had a nice filet mignon for dinner topped off with a couple scoops of frozen yogurt. I get so tickled... usually after he eats he lets out a large burp and last night was no exception. It was if to say, "Man that good!"
