Little Monkey is 13!

Little Monkey – on the day we got her

Little Monkey is 13 years old.

I don’t know LM’s exact date of birth, but according to the rescue centre that we adopted her from, it is sometime around now.

For Little Monkey’s 13th birthday I present for your entertainment a collection of some of my favourite photos of this amazing dog; including never-before-seen footage!Β 

Enjoy the uniqueness and daftness that is our very own Little Monkey.

The first photo above shows a young Little Monkey on the day we got her, in February 2007.

LM – daft

She immediately settled in and showed us her quirky character by trying to squeeze through the bars!

LM and Madam

Above Madam, the alpha female, has an ostrich bone and Little Monkey, the omega, is not going to challenge her.

LM – bone

However, the moment no-one was looking LM would gather all the bones or hooves together and guard them!

Seeing Eye to Eye – Madam and Little Monkey

LM and Madam always had an uneasy truce, mostly because LM hadn’t a clue about the social rules of dog etiquette!

LM and TJ 1

Long before Mr Spaghetti Legs, Little Monkey was best friends with TJ, who was about 8 or 9 years old here and LM was 2 and a half.

The pale thing on LM’s legs is part of a chewed up pool noodle!

You may recognise TJ as being my WP Gravatar and also on my About page; My Tail Too.

I’m glad that LM had TJ in her young life, and later on, SL. As you all know, LM is an anxious dog and it’s very hard to find another dog who will tolerate her and that she is comfortable with.

The young LM

The above photo is of Little Monkey 10 years ago. She hasn’t changed much, apart from being a little hairier now and with more white around the muzzle.

If you scroll down you can see the various faces of Little Monkey, as she has appeared over the years.

Happy Little Monkey

And let’s not forget Little Monkey’s companion, dear old Mr Spaghetti Legs, who helped to make this blog what it is today.

    Happy Birthday Little Monkey and since there is not an exact date that means there should be a month long birthday celebration!! Absolutely loved the photos of all the dogs and especially loved Little Monkey’s stretching, sundog and Super Dog photos! It is amazing how little she has changed over the years and she has definitely maintained her youthful beauty!

    *Claps loudly*πŸŽ‚Happy 13th LM. I love this collection of LM photos and seeing TJ, Madam and SL. You are right in that LM has not changed much. But from the photos I feel she is much more mellowed down and can be comfortable in own skin. Great big GH hugs for LMπŸ€—πŸ€—πŸΆπŸ’—πŸ’—πŸΊπŸΊπŸŽ‚πŸ—
