Birthday boy!

Yo. Readers. Elroy here. Hope you’re all chillin’ and getting ready for the weekend. Mind you, since Her Highness retired, we live in an eternal weekend state. Works for me.

So it’s January 29. And any regular blog reader knows exactly what this day is. Just kidding. I had to look it up too.

Anyway, it’s the Boss’ birthday. Yee haw. Eleven years old. He hit the smallest two digit prime number. Yeah OK. I looked that up too. It’s also the fourth number that stays the same when it’s turned upside down. After 0, 1 and 8. Hold onto that little trivia bit to impress your friends. But wait. There’s more. The Apollo 11 was the first manned spacecraft to land on the moon. But there were no dogs on board so who cares? Oh yeah. And the walls at the base of the Statue of Liberty are in the shape of an eleven pointed star. Are you amazed by my intelligence? Google my friends. Google.

So here are some more trivia bits – but the answer is not eleven. Number one: How many birthdays (counting this one) has the Boss celebrated on the blog? Seven. Holy moly that’s a lot of barking and counter surfing stories.

Here’s a tough one. How many dogs has the Boss lived with in his eleven years? Get ready…..FIVE! Beamish the Labrador, Paxton the Bernese…..

Viktor – who you all know. Probably…

And then along came moi…

And our newest addition- the Shaggy Shark…

The Boss has been an excellent puppy nanny. And he has been the boss over every single dog in this house. Even the guys who were older than him. Why? Because he’s brilliant. And bold. Remember- Viktor used to call him Einstein. With good reason. You show him something once and he’s got it. He may bark out in protest if asked to do something- but it’s not because he doesn’t know what to do. He’s won all kinds of obedience and rally ribbons. Frankly with little practice. He knows how to read Her Highness’ mind. They have this spooky relationship. She thinks something. And he does it. He’s the best guard dog in the house because he owns the place. Well he kinda thinks he owns every place he goes. Yup. He’s bigger than life. He helped Her Highness get more dog show ribbons than any dog before. He got them despite having her on the end of the leash. He led her through every obedience and rally trial and every beauty pageant.

And ya know…. even though Viktor started this whole blog thing – there would be no blog if it weren’t for the Boss – because there wouldn’t have been a Viktor if it weren’t for the Boss. Does that make sense? The Boss was Her Highness’ intro to the world of PONs. And what an intro he was. He’s barky, brilliant, bold, boisterous and he comes by the title Frodo-genic quite honestly. He never met a camera (or treat) he didn’t love.

So happy birthday to my “big brother.” May your double digit birthdays continue for years to come.

Hope you enjoy a FEW photos of him just from 2020. It’s not hard to find some…

Have a good one. Peace and paws up. Stay safe.
