well you know me, I couldn’t help but reflect on our sweet (and often times grumpy) Cosmo’s seven years on this earth.
Have I lost my mind for dedicating a whole blog post to this? Probably, but hey, stranger things have happened. 🙂 And yes, in the interest of full-disclosure, I may not have even liked animals seven years ago – let alone love them – but a lot can change in that time! And I mainly have him to thank.
^^When I first met Cosmo wayyy back in 2010 he had a lot less grey hair, and a lot more energy. (This was the first photo I ever took of him. I’m crying a little now.)^^
And then the natural aging process took over. ^^In fact, I’d say this photo accurately represents his daily activities (I might look like that from time to time too).^^
Though to his credit he is turning 49 years-old if we’re going off dog years.
While I definitely find his general grumpy(er) attitude toward life endearing…
turns out he’s also jovial and just all-around sweet most of the time.
^^In this particular instance, someone had escaped through a hole in the fence at the lake, so naturally he was in a good mood running wild and free.^^
^^He’s also been known to make a good head rest, or…
^^foot rest. It all depends on who you ask.^^
But mostly I think he just wants a little love once and a while, and maybe some more sleep.
Happy 7th/49th birthday!
