Tess the terror turns two today

She steals my socks when I'm not watching. She digs giant holes in the back yard, but usually finds something. She loves nothing more than to wake me up in the middle of the night because she is feeling needy. She has that fire in her belly to retrieve and will work until she physically can't take another step to bring me whatever I throw.

Tess is my beauty queen and non-conformist. She is not too concerned with politics or the economy. She keeps me in the right place when worldly things try to frustrate me. It has been said that all she hears in her head is the song "I'm Walking on Sunshine" on constant repeat. I tend to believe that.

Miss Tess, you only have one more year until you are a "good" dog, but I think you are fine just the way you are. Thanks for blessing me with your exuberance.

Just think, at only two and unable to speak the mother language of her country, she is still more intelligent than BROWN. Pats and rubs, happy birthday to Tess.

Happy Birthday Tess! You should definitely keep with girl goldens if you want them to be "good" and "grown-up" at 3. My Mom still has an 11-year-old puppy, who is btw from Texas. Mystic Goldens, I believe in Midland, was her breeder.

Happy Birthday Golden Girl!
Sweetest Tess, she's so beautiful.

Do you do anything different or make anything for their birthdays?

Don't believe that "good dog" maturity crap for a minute! Mabel will be 6 soon and I'm still waiting!

Happy belated Tess! Hope you talked him into some steak!
