(When Shiloh posted about his barkday wish, that was sort of for me altho he hates it when any dog is hurting - he really does - both him and Shasta - they can't figure out why one won't play - that was just his wish)Okay, so this was a tag made for me back when Shiloh reached his first birthday but, except for a few gray hairs, (those are his words - mine would be MANY gray hairs) he hasn't changed much. Oh, and his birthday really is today, 3/26 (has a piece of paper that says so) so not sure why that says FEBRUARY. Oh and that first date - 5/16/03 is when he finally came home with me - I actually first met him in April of 2003. Anyway, some of you may remember some of these pictures from other posts but just in case, I am taking a trip down memory lane - AGAIN.
Yep, that pic below is my boy, he liked my shoe - Shiloh was my first Beagle but I had raised puppies before. Beagle puppies are a WHOLE
lot different to raise - challenging is the word along with frustrating. After we first met, Shiloh still had more growing to do before he could leave his mama - we visited every week til he came home.
The next pic includes Shiloh walking to your right, another puppy moving to your left and the puppy with the pretty face was the runt of the litter - eventually she was given the name of Tess - not only was she the runt of the litter - she also grew up, kept by the breeder who didn't want to let her go -
Okay, so now we move on-
Shiloh is home with me. And he meets his little "big" brother, Oreo-
he also "met" a hanging basket that wasn't hanging yet-
and a bit later, would develop a "close bond" with->
As Shiloh grew, there were times he wasn't sure about his little "big" brother Oreo but->
very soon they became best buds.
During that first year with me, Shiloh developed a variety of "skills" such as tree trimmer and a fighter of tree monsters->
He would also practice his "kung foo skills" with his froggie sparring partner ->
and by the time Shiloh reached his 1st birthday, he was a master at counter-surfing->
I guess I should show you a skill that he developed about 3 years later when his little sister Shasta joined our family - I guess you could say he learned it growing up, being taught by his little "big" brother Oreo just how to help a puppy grow up->
This last picture is of Shiloh with his Happy Birthday bandana - this picture was taken just last year.
RINGO'S LITTLE BOY SHILOH
I didn't know it was possible but I think I love you a little bit more every year.
