I can't remember what it was like before he was around.
|Looking out the office window, 24 stories up (Summer 2009)|
He was a big dog trapped in a small dog body.
Despite originally being from a shelter in Ohio, he has officially become a little Canadian dog.
He loves boat rides with his best friend.
and with his "dad" :)
He loves naps on the couch (which they are not supposed to do.)
and cuddling up by a Christmas fire.
He loves car trips...as they usually lead to another adventure.
He is always ready for a walk around the park.
or a road trip in his carrier...
... especially when someone exciting is at the other end.
He's been to the Atlantic Ocean in Maine.
...and sat atop a historic cannon in Quebec City.
He has frolicked in the fields
|Spring 2011 - with Garrett's grandmother|
and has eaten many a TimBit donut.
He has watched his first Santa Claus parade.
and nursed a few small injuries :(
He has become an expert at attacking toes and pant legs...
...even wrapping paper is at risk of attack...
....as well as toy bugs.
Warm laundry is deemed an appropriate napping location.
...and shown me the importance of a post-walk nap in a sunbeam.
He's enjoyed the soft feeling a newly made dog bed.
...but found it is even nicer to test out the new pillow covers.
He's had a stocking for our first Christmas together.
...and found the perfect Christmas attire for a sweater loving dog.
He has worn bling.
and a bow tie.
He has been given the nickname "The Tatertot" for being the world's smallest couch potato.
...and shown me what happens to my nightime glass of water at my parents' house.
...and been an inspector for this 27 lb Thanksgiving turkey. (He is only 11 lbs himself!)
Or maybe a kangaroo?
He has braved 3 long Canadian winters.
Although sometimes it gets too cold.
...and then he retreats to under the covers.
Now he is a bit better with the new winter coat my mama made him.
