Happy Birthday Boris
Happy 6th Birthday to my Beautiful Boris
When we got you I'd forgotten just how much hard work puppies were!
Boy did you re educate me very quickly indeed Boris
With the digging up of my beautiful garden, the almost constant removal of slugs and stones from your mouth, those hundreds of trips outside every hour on the hour day and night to get you to potty, it took you months to get the hang of potty training didn't it Boris.
Where did all that poop come from in one so small?
I was exhausted after only one week, had I made a mistake in getting you Boris, I was starting to think so, I was struggling badly!

Boris you have such a powerful drive to learn and willingness to please, it's amazing and I'm enjoying every incredible step of this journey with you to becoming and now being my Assistance Dog
We've had a few problems along the way though haven't we Boris, what with your elbow surgery when you were only 7 months old, then more recently discovering you have a problem with your Staph Pseudintermedius Bacteria attacking your skin, covering you in bald patches and nasty sores, it looked so sore but you never complained
It took a while to get it under control but thankfully we have a good vet and a decent insurance policy from Pet Plan, there's never been any need to worry about all of the thousands of pounds it's cost to get you pain free so you could enjoy life to the full
I've loved every minute of our first 6 years together and look forward to enjoying many more with you by my side
To me you're perfect in every way and the love of my life, you bring me so much joy and happiness every single day
Happy 6th Birthday Boris and also to all of your Magic Roundabout siblings on this special day
