June 9th marks the anniversary of the day we adopted
We spent the evening sharing stories. They OOOHED and AAAHED over things like his white eyelashes, how much of a big giant blockhead he's become, how silky his coat is and how very MELLOW he is (!!) They were curled up on the floor with him much of the evening and he was so, so happy. It was the first party in a year where I didn't stress about the guests and their reaction to Freckles.
I stood in the background just watching, listening and smiling; a proud mama.
The next day, he had his yearly checkup at the vet. While listening to his heart, the vet said, "mmmm, a nice, strong athletic heart." Music to my ears.
