It was one year ago today that Ellsworth came into our lives.

We’ve had an incredible year with him and are looking forward to many, many more. To celebrate his fourth birthday, he’ll be getting Paco treats and lots of extra hugs and scritches. And he’ll be showing us where to scritch.

You see, Ellsworth has learned that he can show us where he wants to be scritched.

Mamma, scritch right here, please.

A little to the right, please, Mamma.

That’s perfect…

…but I’m just going to move your hand over a tad to exactly where I’d like it.

Umm… Mamma? You’re not stopping now, are you?

Pretty amazing, hmm? Watching Ellsworth blossom over the last year has been incredibly rewarding. We think the sky’s the limit for Big Red. ♥ ♥ ♥

Okay, Bernard, it’s like this… I point here and you scritch…

Happy Birthday ‘Worth! We love you so! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
