My boy Pete turned 5 on August 20, 2013. We celebrated with special treats and party hats. My doggie niece, Jenny, was visiting and my two legged baby girl, Eloisa joined in on the festivities (although she didn’t think too much of the doggie treats!). Monte was eager to pose for this photo not moving an inch throughout the many takes, while Eloisa, Pete and Jenny monkeyed around in true party spirit. We are a lucky family to have Pete in our lives. He is a loving doggie boy; always ready for a long cuddle session, incredibly happy upon all our returns home, a fierce guard dog (all 17 lbs of him) and very sweet big brother to his baby sister. I’m a lucky mama and very proud of my darling Pete. Happy Birthday to my Loving Boy.
