Look who's 4 today! When I got ownership of Dante from Fr. John Moneypenny, he had the original purchase documents from Dante's first owner and on one it said the pup's birthday was today.
Towards the end of July, the church receptionist called me to say that Dante had gotten mail at the church and she'd forward it to me. It was a birthday greeting from Banfield Vet Hospital, with a coupon.
Early salutations? No, I am willing to bet that when Dante was registered at Banfield by his previous owner, he put August 1st in the space reserved for birthday. Which is not the dog's. But his own.
