A year today...πŸ’šπŸ’š

So this mischievous little man has been with us a year today ..

Hes given me some hairy moments from eating blueberry muffins to having to be pulled out of the ponds on more than one occasion during walks ...

Hes fitted right in his space now and loves his life hopefully... we have noticed hes getting very tired of late and sleeping lots but hes an old man at the grand age of 12 so that's okay ...

We have been very lucky to have had the pleasure of his company and I tell him this every day πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ–€

He needed love and care Bb8 and you gave it to him. You reap what you sow and Stanley has rewarded you for your kindness. He’s a lovely boy. πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

Hes certainly a babe πŸ–€πŸ–€

I think that the luck goes both ways Blackbird. You gave him a much needed loving home and it's obvious from your photographs that he has very much appreciated it.

Ah me to πŸ’œπŸ’œ

Oh Stanley and he really does look like a Stanley! He's very handsome for his 12 years. Its all the fine dining and interesting walks he goes on. Most importantly, it's how you've made him part of your family and he obviously adores it. So great to hear "good" dog story's nowadays. Well done BB8 ❀.🐿πŸ₯œπŸ₯œXX

Yes we both like fine dining, walking swimming sleeping and in general...life ...Hes definitely fitted in as family boy dog πŸ’œπŸ’œ

Bernadette that's really kind of you thankyou ever so much πŸ’œπŸ’œ

What a wonderful anniversary for you both. Stan the Man with the biggest ears that could get him airborne under his own power. I don’t think anyone’s told him he’s an old man,with all the mischief he gets up to 😁

Hes a devil in disguise as a dog ...His behaviour is so very much encouraged πŸ™ˆπŸ’œ

Happy Anniversary to you both you have worked wonders with Stan and that shows in his love towards you. Stan the Man has enriched my life too, I love hearing about his tales and he makes me smile

Love, hugs and an ear scratch

Ah hes got a lions tail that he gets special when he goes to the groomers ...

it's just a little fluff on the end to protect a lump that he has there ...his tail never wagging and I'm afraid he will hurt it ..

Hes just rolled over and said 🐾🐾pawsome scratch and love back to you and yours 🐱🐱

It is wonderful that you took in an older dog. I have had labs for many years and to me an older dog is so sweet. They are smart after being around so long!! I love the grey muzzle that they acquire with age. Enjoy your puppy... for me they are always puppies no matter what the age. He is so adorable!!😊
