Happy Birthday Mojo

Today is Mojo's birthday...he would be anywhere from 14 to close to 18 years old if he were still with us. This is his second birthday at the bridge. He is loving life there I am sure, because he loved life here with us. His motto was always, Life is Good.
Mojo was a spunky boy and I miss him every day...
He had a lot of trials with us...this photo was taken about a month after he starting living with me. He was still a foster at the time, and had an ear polyp removed. He always appreciated everything he was given...this new blanket was an immediate hit!
This was taken later that year in December...we had been going through a food trial to determine the cause of his allergy problems. He was finally released to eat whatever he wanted, so we made his favorite...stew beef and gravy. We are having that tonight as well in his honor!
His first Christmas with us, my mom crocheted this blanket for him...all the other boys had gotten theirs the year before, and she didn't want him left out. He loved it! We had decided to adopt him by this time, so he was getting more spoiled than ever.
One of my favorite pictures of him...sitting on the ledge, looking into the kitchen...probably trying to get something else to eat.
Things I miss most about Mojo today are:
  • Seeing him snuggled in a favorite bed
  • Hearing him boss me around with his 'pack a day' voice
  • Watching him attack a favorite toy and diving under the couch to get it
  • Seeing the pure joy on his face when you would pop the top of the can of food

I am thankful for the 4 short years Mojo lived with me, and know he is having a blast at the Bridge today. Fly High Superman!!
