Today, January 19th, honours a very special birthday. Our wonderful boy Ruffles turns 20 years old! He was my first dog since childhood, and I thank his breeder Joyce Ayotte for allowing me to take him home.
(See attached photo of the moment Ruffles and I met!)
I could write a novelette about all his happy years, and the immense significance of his arrival in our lives. Who could have imagined how involved in TTs Penny would become?! And it all started with the beautiful, loyal Ruffles.
To mark this milestone, Ron and I took him for a portrait sitting with Wendy Beard of Muddypawz. It was a challenge to photograph such a senior fellow. Wendy got some fine shots, and provided the following site addresses where six of them can be seen in various ways of display . Below is Wendy’s and my Invitation to enjoy a few Ruffles Photos.
Happy Birthday! to CH Bootiff Ruffles of Kashmir, CGC, Agility Novice Jumper.
God bless my Grand Old Man.
