Desert Pup's Mom here, as expected the party is still going strong. And since it is such a momentous occasion with Scuba turning 13, I am letting the Pups have the run of the place(a decision I may regret later). But I wanted to take the opportunity to show a few early photos of Scuba.

Scuba's first birthday party, October 18, 1996.

Scuba at 2 months,

She was so tiny, she could sleep in a cat bed(which she is sitting on top of in the photo). She was the first dog I could ever call my own and she changed my life forever. She and her littermates were rescued by a friend of mine who stopped a very evil man from abandoning the six week old puppies in the desert. She got her name after she ripped apart my scuba gear and walked into the living room with my scuba goggles in her mouth. It was such a silly sight that I didn't have the heart to be angry. Scuba became my best friend and would show me how rewarding life could be living with one crazy pooch.

Oh, Scuba, you were adorable as a puppy! (You're still gorgeous, as befits an adult doggy!)

Perhaps Scuba is what The Texas Sun Dogs call a heart dog...

Suka said...

hey Desert Pups,

What a great "Scuba" story but very sad that a mean human was planning in just abandon the pups! Grrrrrr! Very sweet ending and beginning, and how fortunate for the both of you to have found each other. Scuba's pics are very sweet and cute. Such a beautiful doggy as a pup and as a dog!

Happy Birthday Scuba! Here is to many more years of love and happiness and crazy parties!
