Happy Birthday to my Big Red Dog January 29, 2010 By The Food Lady 27 Comments If my Briggs had lived, he’d be 13 today. This is a photo a friend of mine took at Briggs’ first agility trial. He was about 2 years old here. The photo is framed and sits in my office. He was such a fine specimen of a dog. Dexter has big shoes to fill. Happy Birthday Briggs. We miss you every day.
