Today is Roo K. Beker's Fifth Birthday

Today is my little girl Roo's fifth birthday. She is still as much of a puppy as she was when she came out of the high kill shelter in Los Angeles. She's a happier and way less frightened dog. Every day I'm more impressed with her courage and big heart.

This was a couple of weeks ago. We were stuck in the snow and up on a mountain with fallen trees blocking our way out.

I told Roo that was her birthday, because no present could have made her happier. 

Happy birthday, Rooki. I love you, Little Bear.
