Spencer is Eight

Happy eighth birthday to the beautiful little guy (shown in the first photo with his favorite stuffed toy, a plushy moose) who has been our constant companion since he came to us as a two year old in late August, 2008.

Like most German shorthaired pointers (GSPs), Spencer is intelligent and very athletic.  He is a strong swimmer and runs like the wind, has oodles of endurance and is a perfect sidekick in the woods. He likes to run off with socks, and he excavates phenomenal holes in the garden when the spirit moves him.  Having an impressive vocabulary, he understands almost everything that is said around here, and it is almost impossible to put anything over on him.  (We're learning sign language at the moment, but he will probably figure that out in short order too.)

Our sweet laddie loves his tribe (us) with every particle of his being, and we love him back with every particle of ours. Happy birthday, Spencer................

I remember we used to spell around out dog since he would hide at bath time and run to the door when we talked about going outside for some reason.

Tabor, Spencer's middle name is "bathless". He can sense an impending cleanse miles away and he hides.

I had GWPs. I have Labs now to suit my lower energy levels, but I do miss all that love the Pointers give, and their amazing athleticism. Nothing like it! Happy birthday handsome boy!
