Looking Back

Since we turned 11 months old the other day Mom has been going through all the millions of photos she and dad have taken of me and Stanley.  In less than a month we will be one!  She says she cannot believe how fast the time has gone by and what wonderful big dogs we have become!
This was me at 5 weeks old.  Mom was holding me and telling me she'd be back in 2 weeks to take me home forever.  She loved me already!
Me and Stanley shared toys and we still do.  Only now it's more of a tug-of-war sort of thing.
Can you believe I weighed less than 3 pounds?? Of course this pic was taken when I was still with my litter. Now I weigh 19.8 pounds!
This was the first bath mom gave me.  I weighed less than 5 pounds, such a skinny boy I was!
This was Stanley's first bath.  Can you believe he weighs 31.2 pounds now?
This is a photo mom took this morning.  As you can see I am quite large.    She took this when we were practicing my STAY command.  She said I was wonderful with all my commands this morning and gave me a special treat.   

Me and Stanley over heard our pawrents talking this morning and it sounds like they are planning a special trip to celebrate our GOTCHA day in March.  We don't have too many details but heard them talking about taking the trailer and hiking.  Sounds like lots of fun!


Pee Ess - Mom says "thanks" to everyone who said she didn't need to lose weight but said "there's more to her than meets the eye".  I'm not sure what that means.  Anyway, now she only has to lose 10.6 pounds.

10.6? That's even more specific than 12! And what a quick shed of 1.10 pounds!

You boys have come a long way. I am glad I get to see it with my own eyes and we are friends. AND we know there is more than meets the eye as far as your mom is concerned. But weight is not one of them.

Murphy and Stanley what adorable little toddlers you were turned into quite the dapper men about town. I bet you have to beat the ladies off.

Hi boys, Oh it is so hard to believe you'll be one soon-just like Hunter. He got a bath this morning and at 12 lbs still looks pretty pathetic when he's wet. Hope you have a wonderful day! I wonder what your mom is doing to lose the weight; like me-my clothes hide so much but I still need to loose some. Stay calm and play lots.

I must add that it has been a total pleasure watching you grow. I remember you two little things coming to the first walk. You were so tiny then and you were probably four months old then. I also remember how cute you were peeking over the pews in church on Sunday, now you just look over them.

It was dog food. Beef livers with onions in a can. You open it up and it looks like vomit.
