Special Day Tomorrow

I wanted to post this early since tomorrow is the holiday. Here at our house we are celebrating a different day-

I adopted Roman three years ago tomorrow-I did it on the 4th of July and told him all the fireworks were for him finding his "furever" home. I look back on these three years and am amazed at how much my little man has changed and at the same time how little he has changed. With me he is so cuddly (finally) and loving-with strangers he is still so very timid and afraid. And even with my hubby he is still very shy. There are times he will run right up to my hubby and at other times will run away. I will always wonder why he does not feel secure at all times. I understand being around strangers he would not but being around family should be when he is the most secure. I have to say I still wonder what his life was like before HRI gave him the change to be a loving-happy dog. Probably best I never know.

And yes we went out for breakfast to celebrate his birthday. Then hit the farmers market. Was a day out with mom-when he would have rather been home with the "girls".
