It's Kitsune's birthday today. I can't believe he's six years old. I mean I got him when he was an adult dog but only barely at about 1.5 years old and now he's officially getting into older dog years. He's mellowed out a lot and, due to the work we've done, he's a lot less anxious and more calm...able to enjoy his life.
It's weird not being with him for his birthday but very comforting to know he'll be back with us in just over a week now. It's the best doggie birthday present (and homecoming gift for us) that I can really think of.
I'll likely post an update right before we head off on our quest and then, connection permitting, will update the blog from the road. If I can't, then there will be much to post when we get back.
