Guess who is turning 1- Phoenix!!!

Phoenix at work with his Mom

Yes, our sweet little puppy that endured so much pain and suffering last summer at the hands of his owner’s boyfriend is alive and well and 1 year old!!!

His recovery was a miracle and it is such a wonder to see him hit this milestone.  His vets think that he will live a normal healthy life.  Other than knowing that he is loved by many people and sometimes rubbing it into his other dog friends that he was a superstar, he is a great little dog. 

He even got to have his own photo shoot with pet photographer, Ed Lehmann, (who generously donates his time to APA!).  You can see what a beautiful dog he has become and what a great job his new owner has done with him over the last few months.

Happy Birthday Phoenix!!!  He will be signing autographs and posing for photos at the Torchy’s Taco Pet Prom tomorrow where he is pretty sure he is going to win the King title.  I’m so glad he remembers the little people:)

    It is an honor to be able to see you every day and see how far you’ve come since last summer. It still brings tears to my eyes. Who would have ever guessed you’d grow up to be such a sassy little boy? Its okay, we love you even when you are back talking!
