:: Jethro’s First Birthday ::

Yesterday our sweet puppy turned 1! Which I guess makes him no longer a puppy, but I am a member of the “all dogs are puppies forever” club, so he will always be my puppy. Jethro decided to spend his birthday sleeping and to be honest I don’t think there is anything better. We did however celebrate with treats and a new toy which he figured out how to destroy sooner than I ever imagined. Seriously, it was made by KONG and out of hard rubber, and he managed to chew a chunk out of it. This is why he no longer has anything nice.

**WARNING: It is entirely possible that I have included what some may deem as ‘too many’ photos of Jethro, if this is your school of thought, then please feel free to leave now. Otherwise carry on!**

Jethro has had so many adventures and experienced much more in his first year of life than most humans get to do. I think it is safe to say this pup is spoiled, well loved, and such a blessing. He makes us more active, keeps mom and dad on their toes, and gives me an excuse to talk to myself while at home because really I’m talking to him! I cannot wait for his next year, and hopefully training him to pull, but first on the list is his new sibling!

Thanks for following along during this past year.
