(LOTS OF PHOTOS!)

Sweet Simon is five years old today! We have a little birthday party/late Christmas planned for tonight.

It seems like just yesterday that we adopted him from the Humane Association. Here he is just minutes after arriving home. He was seven months old. He panted for about 24 hours and refused to come inside.


The first meeting with Angus. Look how much smaller he was than Angus! They were not instant friends, as you can see.


In fact, there was quite a bit of "sibling" rivalry:


And it was always a contest to see who could be the first to bowl Mom over.

But Simon always knew how to have a good time.


Well, sometimes...


OK, most of the time!

He didn't like the water much at first (and no wonder, with that big monkey on his back all the time)


But he soon learned to dive in


And swim like a fish!

He loves to get massages


And he adores jumping over obstacles


And he qualified at his very first time at a show in the ring. I was so proud of him this day.

He has pulled some very interesting stunts...like the time during our first field trip in the new car with divided crates, he somehow managed to squeeze himself through a five-inch opening and get into Angus' side, without us ever knowing until we got home.


He's not crazy about baths...


He loves to go on trips with Mom and Dad. Here he is at Rock City.


And his most favorite thing of all is to hold a very large article of clothing in his mouth. He never chews or destroys it. Just holds it.

Angus did not look very happy to meet Simon, yikes! Very nice action shots . . . although I would be kinda mad at the person that took the picture of you falling down :).

He is a terrible painter:


But he sure knows how to relax and take it easy.


He looks great covered in snow!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SIMON! To my sweet Simon McPieman with the soulful eyes, thank you for five years of wonderful memories!


Oh, one more shot: Simon in one of his famous hidey-holes.
