Today is Brier's 9th birthday. He had a great day that involved a cheeseburger and a new stuffed animal that squeaks that he got to pick out. He had to visit his vet too for a checkup...but that went well. He has a very strong drive, that working dogs have and that has helped him keep going with his battle with Degenerative Myelopathy. I'm proud of all he has done and how much he puts up with every day. Including the never ending bandage changes and boots on, boots off, boots on, boots off... He is the best boy ever. Tomorrow is swimming day...YEAH!...Brier's one wish for his birthday is that every day is swimming day...:-).
