July 11th, or 7-11 might mean free Slurpees for some people. But for us it means making sure we get to the 7-11 to finally get Slurpees. And the bigger the better. Of course, it's also when we celebrate Kobe's gotcha day. (Madi likes to give him a treat with lots of PB on it) He's been with us for FIVE years now. Five years since we brought home that scrawny little 6 month old pup. He hasn't changed much since last year. He just can't sleep in our room since we put the gate up at our door for Duke. I think that makes him a little sad. And I'd probably add the fact that he loves cheese, butter and chicken. Anytime I'm cooking something with any of those ingredients, he's right there next to me, sitting as nicely as he can, waiting for some.
