Baloo turns 3 today!!! I can't believe that he's been with us for so long. I can still remember walking into the APA shelter just looking for a puppy. We had driven all that way into downtown and hubby wasn't too keen on the idea of a puppy in the apartment, but knew I wouldn't wait! We went in and there were actually quite a few puppies. I had never really been to a shelter and when I saw Baloo with his brothers, I wanted to take him out and get a closer look at him, but that's a no-no. So, we looked for a few more minutes and then it was back to his cage. They had named him "Flower" - can you believe that? Oh-well. All of his brothers looked like pit bulls, but Baloo was the only one classified as a terrier. We decided that he was destined to be ours. We filled out the paper work, paid the fee and then went home - he still had to be neutered. About 3 days later, I went to pick him up. I was kinda worried about our rush decision. I hadn't been able to hold him, play with him, or even have a good look at him when we decided to get him, so I was kinda worried, but when they brought the little guy out, my heart melted!!! I was in love. On the ride home, he shook the whole time (still does in strange places). He has always been a cuddle bug and the best friend I could ever have!
Happy Birthday Baloo - I'm so glad you came into my life!!
