We brought him home on St. Nikolaus Tag sixteen years ago today.
For his first 2 years, we lived in Germany… and apparently fed him weeds from the garden.

He had other adventures, too.
He had a dog to love and call his own.

He is studious, polite, kind, and currently the scariest person to get behind the wheel of my minivan. 😉
