    Happy birthday to my most amazing, constant, challenging, rewarding, work of art, Arnold. We've come so, so, so very far and here is to 8 more years of hanging out on the couch and being an all around good boy.

    I love you buddy. :)

    The first photo I ever took of Arnold.

    I found Arnold at a dog park when he was about 5 months old. I took him home that night around 11pm and went back every day for 2 weeks. He was supposedly a semi regular but no one knew his "mom". At the end of the 2 weeks I ran into a woman walking a lab who proclaimed "You adopted my dog!" I was confused but she recognized him by his funky (deformed or broken at birth) ribs. Long story short she left him at the park for a laundry list of reasons but most importantly because she "knew someone good would come along and shelters are so sad".

    Well, her loss. He's been an insane challenge in some ways and the easiest dog alive in others. [​IMG]

    (He still had teeth!! He's broken them all in fights or breaking crates)[​IMG]
