I am Thankful Because I have My Mama and Daddy and EVEN Dory....Bilbo's Story UPDATED

It almost seems like I have always been with my human Mama and Daddy, and then again it seems like just yesterday.....when really it was 7 and a half YEARS ago...that is like FOREVER!!


I was born way down in South Austin and had 3 puppy sisters and another bunch of humans. I first remember seeing my Mama and Daddy when they called me over. I trotted over to give them a sniff. Mama loved me at very first sight. They knew they were getting me before they even saw me 'cause I am a big, strong male puppy. Well...that and I was Daddy and Mama's very first dog and they thought they should start with a handsome boy like me!!


I had them charmed from the very beginning and think that I ended up training them to be pretty good parents and they give me lots of loves and snuggles. More than I can handle sometimes!!


I was an only puppy for almost 2 years, it was great!! I got all the attentions from all the humans, I got my own house to share with Mama and Daddy. I even had my own backyard to go out with Mama and Daddy on their strings (there was no fence).

Then way back in March of 2004 we went on a LONG LONG ride ALL the way to BRYANT Texas (Mama says that the Longhorns are playing some team from there today).

BILBO!!!!!! It is MY TURN!!!!!
