Five Alive!

Siler was named for Silers Bald on the Appalachian Trail. Of course we still call her just "bird dog" most of the time. Cullin was named for a mountain too, the Cuillin Hills on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. Anywho, the point is – Siler turned 5 today!

She is truly a part of our family and even with her doggie quirks, she's the most well-behaved, tolerant pup I know. She does what she's told, doesn't bark, she's fetching maniac – on land and water, and she endures daily life with a 3.5 year old, oh, and annual halloween costumes. We love you, bird!

Today, she got to go for a big hike and last weekend, at the Lyons Outdoor Games, Siler took 3rd place in the Canine Cannonball competition. She's always #1 with us. Happy Birthday, bird dog!!
