Happy 3rd Birthday Gabey Boy!!!

Happy Birthday Gabe!!! You have made the last 2 years, 9 months and 16 days the most enjoyable, funny, weird, and happiest time of my life. I pray that we will have atleast 15 more years together. You make me smile EVERY single time I look at you. You have given me memories that will last the rest of my life.

You make me laugh atleast 50 times a day. I love that you follow me everywhere...even when I get out of bed to go to the bathroom at 2 in the morning. I love that sometimes when you howl, it sounds like you are saying "Erinnnnnnn." I love when I come home, you greet me by putting your front paws on my shoulders and giving me a big kiss. I love how when I tell you to sit, you bark at me instead. I love that you get mad and bite me when I sing to you. I love that you think it's your job to lick the soap off my arms and face when I take a bath. I love that if I don't take you for a walk, you let me know by standing in front of me and howling. I love how big you are. I love how when we wrestle, you bite my arm and try to drag me around. I love how you watch t.v. with me. I love how you stick your head in the door so I can't shut it if I go in a room without you. I love how you wait by the bedroom door for me whenever you want to go to bed. I love how you think babies are snacks. I love your giant ears, head and nose. I love how you sound like Chewbacca when you get excited. I love how excited you get when you are about to eat, because I get that excited when I eat too. I love how you can cheer me up when I'm upset. I love how you figured out how to open the door to the room I'm in. I love how when you get excited, you gallop around like a horse. I love how you act like I'm the most important person in your world...because I am!

Some of my favorite memories since we became best friends are:

1. Seeing you run and do a flip onto your dog bed when you were a little puppy...that was the weirdest thing ever and Mom and I laughed so hard.

2. When you somehow got into mom and dad's neighbor's backyard and wandered into her kitchen -- she was scared of you!
3. When Chris and I took you, Chase and Dakota skiing, and you played in the snow and went crazy.

4. Watching you go crazy at doggie splash day and trying to steal all the treats.

5. When Tex growls at you so you put your paw on his head rub it, like you are telling him "'s ok, I'm your cousin."

6. The day I we met and we fell asleep on the couch and you slept on my stomach for a couple hours.

7. When you were a puppy, how you would crawl under Annie and it would really frustrate her. And how you liked when Annie's tail would hit you in the face.

8. The many, many times you wouldn't look where you were walking and you would walk straight into a wall.

9. The time when we were all at mom and dad's house, sitting in the living room having a conversation, and you sat your butt down on the edge of the couch like you were part of the conversation too.

10. When we were going for a walk and a kid thought you were a warewolf.

I love you Gabey boy!!! Happy Birthday!!!

-The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too.
