Happy Birthday to the most hardworking guy I know!

Birthdays are the perfect time to reflect on those important to our lives and are a chance to show how much we appreciate them. So today, I'd like to send a very special shout-out to someone who means so much to us. He's not really into celebrating things like birthdays, as he prefers to go about his day as usual. He's a bit of a workaholic you see, and even if we threw him the biggest birthday party ever, he would work right through it. Because his job, and the people he works for, are the most important things in his life.

And if he's really lucky, he'll get a chance to play... 

...with a squeaky ball

SCOUTY WOMPUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Scout is our two year old yellow Labrador. His training began when he was only a few weeks old, and in February he came home to live with us. Scout is my youngest daughter, Sarah's, diabetes alert service dog. His job is to let Sarah know anytime her blood sugar drops below 85 or climbs above 185. And he's a champion at his job. While he's basically on the clock 24/7 (which limited exceptions when they're apart for short periods), Scout gets a lot of play time, cuddle time, and attention. You can follow the adventures of Scout and Sarah here:

Scout watches over Sarah as she sleeps
Watches Sarah checking her blood sugar

Evening is fun time

Playtime makes everyone happy

Scout is better behaved than most boys in junior high

He carries the bringsel to tell Sarah to check her blood sugar

Watches over Sarah when she's sick

"Sarah, you're low!"

"Sarah, you're high!"

A great listener
