Happy (Belated) Birthday to two special guys

This is a belated but important birthday announcement to two guys who entered my life in the past two years and have made an extraordinary impact on my life.
Outside of my own father and husband I must say these two guys are coined "most influential" in my life over the past two years, and it just so happens they share the same birthday.  One turned one year old and the other ninety one years old.
Despite the huge age difference they both have remarkable and inspirational displays of unconditional love, joyful character and dedication.
Davedaddy is by far the most wise, loving and committed elderly man I have ever met; his dedication to his family is unremarkable.  He inspires Braydon and I to instill family values in our lives and has given us direction and wisdom to raise our own family.  Davedaddy's presence brings peace and joy to anyone he surrounds, not to mention he is the most adorable elderly man I've encountered.

And then you see where this is going....now you may say, how (or why) would you compare a puppy to an honorable elderly family patron?  Well, there really are striking similarities between these two men.  Not only do they show absolute unconditional love and joy to everyone they surround, they have made such an incredible impact on my life.
As mentioned in a previous post I am an animal lover, so it comes as no surprise that I often compare animals to people.  Honestly, Bear and Davedaddy embody so many of the same characteristics of joy, selfishness and love, it seems only fitting that they share the same birthday.
