Happy 4th Birthday Romeo!

Today is the little shit's 4th birthday!

I can't believe he is 4 years old already. Boggles the mind, it does!

I still think of Romeo as the little puppy. He's the young one, the little one ... not the adult dog! It's so weird!

But, while he certainly cannot be called a pup anymore, at least he still acts like one! Definitely not a mature bone in this little turd's body.

Just to convince myself that Romeo really is a big boy now, here are some pictures of when he first joined the family at 9 months old.

The first meet and greet with Gio. Gio assumed the "maybe if I ignore him, he will go away" expression on day 1 and has maintained it ever since.

Romeo hid under the coffee table for most of the first evening. Gio continued to assume the stance that if he didn't look at Romeo, he would just go away.

But they both lightened up once they realized there were tennis balls involved!

And became fast friends.

The scrawny little puppy, affectionately named "you little black bugger" ...

... has turned into quite the handsome little man!

With plenty of *sproing*!

Happy 4th birthday, little pig!
