Happy Birthday, Jimmie Dog

Today my greyhound mix, Jimmie, turns twelve years old. Since he’s turned eleven, it has been an eventful year.

Jimmie watched as I packed and painted the Blacksburg house:

As our possessions got sold and moved into storage, the poor dog had to scrounge for places to lay. But now, months later in a new state, he finally has a couch again!
