August’s birthday list is quite short and pretty sweet, which is very fitting as that is an exceedingly apt description of the two dogs with a birthday in August.
The diminutive and delightful Avery was 6 years old on 9 August. She is a happy little soul, very easy to live with and a pleasure to have in harness.
The not so diminutive but equally delightful Jak turned 5 years old, just a few days later, on 12 August. He was one of the recent arrivals from Seppala Kennels and has proved himself to be quite the character. He’s been battling a fairly major, but mysterious malaise and happily we seem to be winning now. The plus side to his ailment has been that he and I have spent a lot of time together, with trips to the vets, persuading him to take his meds and just generally hanging out. It has definitely brought us closer, quicker.
