Yesterday was Puppy's first birthday. I cant believe he is already a year old! Time flies! These photos were taken the day I brought him home when he was 8 weeks old. I cant tell you how much this little guy means to me. He can truly brighten my day and bring me up when I am down. He is my cuddle buddy and the one thats always there for me. I am so happy to have him.

We spent the day yesterday snuggling on the couch for the morning. I felt i deserved some good down time and cuddles purely for the fact that i have kept him alive this long. Then we went out to one of the bigger dog parks and spent a good amount of time playing with TONS of other pups. Dexter repaid me by playing in a massive mud puddle. Like digging and jumping and trying to eat the splashes. Then he just laid in it. Awesome. At least he had a good time. All in all it was a great day. I just love him so much. And Im so glad that he is my pup.
Here he is in his puddle. Yes, as usual, he was the only one in it. The only dog that was covered head to tail in mud. He had a wonderful time.
(This pic doesnt even begin to show how dirty he got)


  1. Such a cutie! Seriously, you're a lucky gal for having such an awesome pup.

    And I'm sure he appreciated you letting him roll and dig in the mud on his birthday :)

“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
