Happy 10 Years of Bleu

That little guy pictured above moved in with us ten years ago today. We already had our big boy Jacoby, but we felt like he needed a companion. I don’t think we could have found a better one, than little Bleu. They were inseparable throughout the rest of Jake’s life. They were best friends. They were brothers.

When we got Bleu he was so tiny he could easily fit in both hands and have room to spare. The size of the world seemed overwhelming to him. As if he were thinking “There is too much grass in the world! It’s going to take me days to walk from A to B. He also got car sick on the drive home and puked on my wife.

As the years went on he got bigger and more confident. He learned a lot about being a dog from his big brother Jake. To the point that he seems to have become a big dog in a little dog body. Running off leash, playing fetch, and chewing on bones are in his wheelhouse. However, he never fell in love with swimming. He would much rather just sit on the beach and bask. Which seems like it might be difficult to do on this overcast Canada Day morning.

Once again, Happy Canada Day! It feels great to actually say that as a citizen of this great country. This will be my tenth Canada Day overall, but it feels like my first. I am about to burst with excitement at this momentous occasion.

Now if you’ll excuse me I am sure there some beers that need drankin’ and some veggie dogs that need to be grilled. Oh and of course there is Camp NaNoWriMo! Which is where I am off to today and for the rest of the month!

Have a great and happy Canada Day! May you quaff deeply from the chalice of good times and verily eat your preferred grilling substance and a bag of chips! Too bad I already ate all the potato salad I had intended for today.

Extra special Canada Day thanks and hugs n’ kisses to the lovely and beautiful Nicole Standard for the featured image.
