Rudy celebrated his 8th birthday out at the Dos Pueblos Ranch yesterday with approximately 324 guests! Although Rudy meandered around the ranch believing all the preparation and commotion were for him, we were actually there to participate in the 15th annual Back to the Bayou fundraising event for the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission. Sadly, we were so busy that none of us took any pictures at the ranch but we did enjoy a little post-Bayou party at home later that evening. It was a full day for our family but Rudy definitely felt celebrated in the midst of all the activity and we were blessed to share the day with so many SBRM friends & supporters who have a personal interest in and love for our family as well…the best birthday gift one can get is to know how very much he is loved and Rudy certainly got that tenfold! Happy Birthday Rudy!!!
