Our little Jinx is a Big Boy today. Today Jinx is the big 2!
I think he looks thrilled, don’t you?
You will forever be a puppy, no matter how old you get. Age is just a number and doesn’t reflect your actions in the least. You’re a wonderful little boy who still squats to pee so you can be just like Annie and Sassy because they are So Cool. You’re our little Lappie crossed with Beaver because you carry around wood in any form, twig, branch, fire log, poles from the garden. You love anything wood. Thank goodness you’ve stopped using our coffee table leg as a chew toy – I think it helped that it was in storage for 8 months and therefore out of sight, out of mind and mouth.
You’ve pulled on Annie’s tail so much since you’ve been around that it’s a pathetic little excuse for a tail and you’re really lucky Annie puts up with so much because you know how sharp her teeth are and how fast her jaw is when she wants you to just GO AWAY AND LEAVE ME ALONE! Although that never really deters you for long… you’re back at her a day or so later.
You’re still lighter than Annie… but then again she’s a tad overweight. Although when she first came to live with us I still think she had a few pounds on you. I don’t think you’ll ever be a Big Dog, but you’re certainly fluffy enough. It’s been awesome watching you grow up from that little 4 month old pup who romped around our back yard in Verdun the day before our wedding. A couple of things haven’t changed a bit – your tail has never stopped wagging and your eyes have always had that sweet and loving look to them. Your facial expressions have never changed from day one… although you’ve learned a few new ones when you want to get your own way.
You’ve found your voice and I think it even startles you when you back deep and long. You sound like a much bigger doggie than you actually are. We won’t tell anyone who tries to break in though, we’ll just let them think you’re a Mastiff or Great Dane.
You answer to many names, mostly because you just want to be loved by whomever is calling you. You’re our Jinxy, Winxish, Winxy, WinxyJinx, Billionaire Jinx Puppy and more. And you’ll come even if we don’t call you but just look at you in a certain way… or if we have food.
We love you, little pup.
Happy birthday, Winxy!!
