Advice From My Best Friend

It’s Theo’s Birthday!

He’s three years old. All grown up. I cannot believe how fast the time went. And I can’t imagine my life without him.


Truly, he is my best friend.

Theo has taught me so much in the last three years.

In comparison, I’ve taught him so little. He pees and poops outside. He sits (for a reward). Sometimes he comes when I call. Sometimes.

That’s about it.

But what he has taught me is immeasurable.

Patience.  Joy.  Forgiveness.  Love.

I’ve learned so much.

And for the last month or so, I have been sharing all Theo’s wonderful advice on Twitter.

He is becoming way more popular than I am. And he deserves his growing fame.

Here for your edification are some of Theo’s best tips:

    Oh I think I’ve fallen in love with Theo!


    • Everyone says that… until they have to babysit. It’s puzzling, but everyone who sits for him is busy the next time I ask…


  17. Happy birthday to Theo! Our sweet Junior was abandoned so we don’t know his exact birthday or age (he’s about four now), but his adopta-versary is October 11, which is what we celebrate. They truly are our best friends.


  18. Love Theo’s tips! He has great advice.
