Augie is 17!

My beloved dog, Augie, turned 17 years old today. She came to me as a puppy, from the Arlington Animal Welfare League in Arlington, VA. She’s lived in Northern Virginia, Louisiana and now, Louisville, KY. A brindle coat Whippet-Fox Terrier mix, and pound puppy, she has brought nothing but love and light into my life, and the lives of virtually everyone she has met. I am very grateful she is still with me, despite showing advancing signs of age. (For Pete’s sake, she’s 119 years old, if you buy the seven dog years for every one human year!) Long may you run, Augie. Your Daddy loves you. And this song hits home for both of us…
