    Happy birthday, Hector.

    Today, everyone, Hector has reached the ripe old age of one! Let's take a trip down memory lane, shall we?

    Here is the first picture we received of him from the breeder. He's about 7 weeks.



    We picked him up when he was 14 weeks old. As you can see, it was love at first sight between him and Titus.



    Look how small!



    Eventually, Titus warmed up to him. Here they are, enjoying a walk on the Notre Dame campus.



    After a near-death experience (he swallowed a sock!), Hector quickly returned to health.



    And then he was neutered.



    Which made him grow.



    Now he and Titus are nearly the same size, and we are so happy to have him as part of the family. Happy birthday, little friend.

    Thank you for saying he's photogenic, JLE. He's actually kind of a wonky little guy (his head is misshapen, his eyes are two different colors, he is so long in the spine that his hind end trails his front end at an angle). He's not the pretty boy that Titus is, but he's charming nonetheless.

    Happy Birthday both to Hector and to Flash! Love the picture book about Hector's life and adventures; the text cracked me up. "He survived a near-death experience [swallowed a sock]. And then he was neutered." I wonder what his cause-and-effect interpretation of these two events would be?

    Welcome, Shelly! Yes, there are a lot of dog lovers here, me among them. But cat lovers needn't feel left out: we've also had lots of photos of the felines who love TB bags as well.
