Happy barkday to an old favorite...

Long-time readers of my blog might remember THIS cutie...

 He was a pup born into LBR's care back in 2012 to Mama Dallas, who we rescued skeered and pregnant from a shelter. He was the only surviving pup of his litter, and his momma named him Austin in honor of another Texas city. I chronicled his birth and kept everyone pupdated on his growth over the weeks.

 I was so excited the time I got to meet Baby Austin in the furs at a Howl-o-ween event!

OMD, and then he got ADOPTED by the bestest family and got his own little girl!

Luckily, his new family kept us updated on his progress, and brought him out to several LBR events. Here he is with Momma at our Mums & Roses fundraisers in 2012 and 2013.

He got so big!!! Sometimes I see his pictures and wonder who that giant dog is that ATE my Baby Austin. 

He just celebrated his FOURTH barkday yesterday, and his pawrents sent us a picture of him enjoying his birthday treats. HAPPY BARKDAY, BABY AUSTIN!!!! You'll always have a special place in our hearts.
