Tyrus Cobb Starr...

Tyrus Cobb Starr was born April 4, 2004. We bought him on May 14, 2004, when he was six weeks old from a crack house on the East side of Des Moines. He is our first, very expensive baby. Ty spent much of his first year eating things he shouldn't...siding off the house, our hot tub cover, cement mix, underwear, a stadium blanket, and my Pottery Barn curtains. Many of these "meals" resulted in pricey trips to the vet. Perhaps, the most expensive health scare was a bout with parvo virus in September 2004. He spent almost a week in the puppy hospital, but recovered well and now limits himself to dog food, peanut butter and the occasional treat. Ty will only drink his water from the sink in the bathroom and stands on all fours on the toilet to do so. He has brought us so many laughs and has been great with Addison. He is the size of a small horse and we're thinking about purchasing a saddle so Addi can ride him.
