I hardly ever do Throwback Thursdays but I have a couple of throwback pics to share today!
My mom was going through some old boxes earlier this week and came across photos from ages ago. The first throwback photo is of ME with Woofy, my favorite doggy in the world.
I still have Woofy! He’ll be 28 years old this year and I still think he’s the greatest thing on this planet. He looks slightly more worn than he does in this photo – some might say he’s literally falling apart – but he looks like a million bucks to me!
My mom said the day ^ this picture was taken I told my grandma that Woofy needed to wear underwear and made her cut a hole in the back so that his tail could fit through 😂.
When I was just shy of 12 years old my mom let me adopt my first cat, Leo. Here he is a few days after we brought him home. I honestly get all choked up looking at this picture because I loved this cat with my whole heart and I still miss him very much.
Here we are together right after he moved in with Adam and I (my freshman and sophomore year of college Leo lived with my parents since student housing didn’t allow pets).
And this here is Timberlake aka Timby. My mom and I adopted him right before I turned 13 so he’s aptly named after Justin Timberlake!
He was the friendliest cat that I ever met. He put up with kids, he loved being the center of attention and nothing made him happier than being brushed. He was my mom’s buddy and was always by her side.
Seeing these old pictures was such a nice surprise this week. Another surprise was realizing just how bad picture quality was back in the day! We’ve come a long way… thank goodness!
Did you have a favorite stuffed animal / blanket growing up? Still have it?!
When did you get your first pet and what kind was it? My first pet was a turtle named Myrtle!
