Finnegan is five years old today! I realize this picture isn't the happiest ever, but Finn's face has only three expressions... happy/panting, sad/noble, and hungry/drooling. He's not actually sad... he just has resting sad face.
Five feels like such a huge milestone! Everyone has been telling us since the day we got him that "labs finally calm down at five". It's true that since his last birthday, he has been slowing down a bit. He gets tired now when playing fetch and is more content to spend his days lying on his favourite chair and following Molly and I around.
So happy birthday, Finn! You are the happiest, best creature I know. Thank you for being my dearest friend and constant companion. I love you!
