A Picture a Day For a Year - January 1, 2011

I have decided to take on a personal challenge of taking a picture a day, every day for a year.  Each picture will be of something that I encountered during that particular day. There is no set theme, just a picture.

Pete the Man
 I decided the 1st entry of the year would be a picture of our dog, Pete.  The story of Pete is an interesting one.  Almost as interesting as his looks.  The story starts in the dog pound in Crystal City in 1999.  My partner and I would go look at this pup and laugh at him each day because he was so funny looking.  As his time in the pound was drawing to a close and he was approaching his date with the Reaper, I told my wife she needed to see this thing.  He has slept in my bed since that night.

In December of 2009, Pete had a run in with a car.  Literally.  This mishap cost him his tail, split his paw in half and opened a hole in his stomach I could put my fist in.  After a few surgeries and 6 months of healing, he is good to go.  This Christmas he spent with 4 staples in his neck due to a small growth being cut out.  He told me he is not a fan of December.  Anyway, I thought it was fitting he be the first entry into my picture a day project.
