Today is Mr. Willie Nelson Mandela’s 4th birthday. Two years ago, we became a little family — and oh, how he has made my life happier.



First bath

Yeah, I'm smiling

New hat for Duda

He is the best hiking partner, and nothing makes me laugh like scratching his tummy and seeing him pull back his tiny black lips to smile wide. Skunks, fleas, ticks be damned — WNM is the best dog ever. I am forever thankful to the Denver Dumb Friends League. 

We will celebrate as we do — with a cupcake toy from Target, a new collar, long walk and Kong full of peanut butter.

Nelson: year 1

Happy 4th birthday, Nels!
