This is my dad and his dog Tux. My dad has always loved animals and been supportive of his kids endeavors to train and care for animals. And he’s always been one to get in the ground and actually okay with the animals or his grandkids (I think the pets are better behaved than the kids sometimes…).
Today is my Dad’s birthday! When I was a child and asked what he wanted for his birthday he always responded “obedient children.” Obviously that says something about his kids but I think that says more about him. He was content to have his big family all together and happy over any material gift.
Happy birthday to my dad who has always been an example of hard work and gratitude and loyalty and contentment. I couldn’t ask for a better father.
