Gibson Les Paul of Mystic Mountain (yes, he was named after the guitar by my musician daughter!) joined our family in April of 2006 when he was almost four months old. After giving him his first bath, he slept on my lap the whole first night he was home. He is my very intuitive boy. He understands everything from a mere look to the spoken word. We have a very special bond.
He is, has been, and always will be totally in love with my daughter's Sibe, our alpha queen Harley (since the day he came home and she beat him up)! They are inseparable. He is also a really good big brother to the three pupsters, his younger siblings, and the best canine companion I could ask for. When we first added the three pups to our family, I had a dog whisperer come to visit our home. At first introduction, she referred to Gibson as "an old soul who has definitely been here before" and she said "He knows things." I so agree with the latter. No matter what one believes, he is a very special furbaby indeed. May we all have many more years together!
In honor of today, I put together a little slideshow reflecting back on the past five years of love and fun with Gibson, starting with his homecoming! I hope you will enjoy watching this as much as I had creating it (and fondly reminiscing!)
