Our Wally–Six Years Young Today


I thought I’d share these photos of our Wally.  Do you remember him as a puppy?  He was so cute!  We’re celebrating his sixth birthday today.  Happy birthday, Wally!!


These days when a stranger passes by they always comment, “Aw, there’s an old one”.  See, the white mask that many Goldens develop is becoming more pronounced on Wally.  I’m always quick to proclaim “he’s only five!”  Six now, of course.  But I don’t want to think of our Wally getting older.  I want lots and lots more years with him.  Endless years.  He’s still cute.  And young.  So there.

I love our Wally and his bright eyed, happy face, mask and all.  And when his face turns snow white I’ll take it in my hands and kiss it all over and tell him how beautiful he is.  Our beautiful, dear, sweet, good, kind, six years young, Wally.  Thank you for sharing this special day with us.

  2. Happy birthday Wally! Yes, he is still young no matter what his face says. I think he's "prematurely" gray. What a love. I'm sure he'll have a wonderful day today.

  8. The sweet pictures you post of Wally have always brightened my day. I valiantly attempted to get my daughter to get a Golden, but alas, she bought a Great Dane instead. Though I, of course adore him, my heart will always be with Goldens. I hope you have many more wonderful years with the companion who will always be your pup, Leslie.

  23. I love all dogs & of course #1 is my Standard Schnauzer, Fritz, but Goldens always steal my heart! I used to make multiple trips to the mailing station near my office just to see their Golden!

  24. Thanks for posting this. I wish it topassignmentwriters.com/ was able to be translated, but for some reason Google toolbar isn't working. I copy pasted it into another application and read the post.
