On May Tenth my puppy Augustus had his first birthday. I made him a birthday cake and, being the person that I am, took a ton of pictures of him eating it. I’ve never had a puppy before and never one that I knew their birthday so I thought this was a pretty momentous and exciting moment for both of us. Lucky for me he paid very little attention to the camera. I guess that’s what happens when you’re given cake.
I cannot describe how much of a roller coaster this last year (minus six 1/2 weeks) has been. This boy has changed me in so many ways. Some days he is a tyrannical toddler and others he is the sweetest pup a girl could ask for. In less than a week I will have to leave for 35 days and I have to say, one of the things I will miss most is my puppy snuggles with Gus.
