Happy 1.5 Year Birthday!

Lomax (and all his littermates, of course, including sister Kandy and brother Liam) will turn 18 months old today!

Last Saturday I took him to Liam's house for a brother photo-op as well as to meet Voight, a working GDA guide whose partner is on vacation for a few days in a dog-inconvenient locale. Voight's staying with Liam and his puppy raisers; they raised Voight, too. I remember when Voight was just a pup...I had just started coming to GDA meetings. And now he's a grown up guide dog! We're all very proud of him.

He looks great in his harness, as though the mantle of maturity and experience has settled upon him. The L Brothers want to be just like him when they grow up.

Here's the serious "GQ" shot, with everybody looking handsome:



And here's the personality shot:

Happy Birthday Lomax, Liam, Kandy and the rest of the litter!!

I love how Lomax kinda still looks like he's grinning a bit in his GQ picture :D

Thanks, Calvin! Lomax got to see his friends and strut his stuff at obedience class tonight, and now he's chewing on his favorite Nylabone ring. It was a good day.

And Nat...yes. He's so happy all the time that even when he's "serious," he just can't hold it in!

Hey Lomax,

Happy B-Day to you, Kandy and Lomax. I think the first photo should be on the cover of DQ and I don't mean Dairy Queen. WOW!

Bark 'Ruff' to your human.

Woof!

I love the contrast between the two pix. I wonder how you got them all to keep their mouths shut in the GQ pic? The second one just made me smile and smile.

Thanks for the well-wishing, everyone!

Julia, you have no idea how many pics I took of the boys. I think that was the ONLY one where Lomax didn't have his tongue flapping in the breeze, even when the other two looked stoic.

Smiliest. Dog. Ever.
