You get a birthday card for you brother like this -
I sent this card to my brother Chip on his last birthday! He is an incurable NASCAR redneck and I love to tease him about it. He grew up riding motorcycles, driving sprint cars and smelling like gasoline - so he can't help it! He lives in Salem, Oregon and met Lady a couple months after we adopted her. As you can see, it was love at first site....for both of them!
Chip's history with Goldens goes back to the original Sadie and continued with a Sunny puppy from the first Sunny-Solo litter. His name was Toby. Below is a picture of Toby, but his and Sadie's stories and additional pictures are at these links:
Sadie (the original) - her story
I took this picture of Toby when he was with his Dad Chip on the last special trip they would ever make (Tierra del Mar, OR). Toby just loved it here. This is our favorite picture of Toby in the winter of his life. Currently Chip doesn't have a dog. I know this weighs heavily on his heart, because he loves them so much. When the time is right, I expect there will be another Golden in the family. Until then, doses of Lady whenever we can get together usually does the trick.
