Two Years Old!

So yesterday we had a birthday……

*sniff sniff* My little baby-dog is a whole two years old now!
I did not attempt to bake him another dog-friendly cake like I did last year, because that was a disaster. You know the dog-friendly cake tastes bad when the dog won’t even eat it. Ahem.
He did get his favorite dog treat, some bites of my lasagna and his favorite: a small chunk of shredded cheese straight out of the bag. Oh yea, and he got a bath. Because he went swimming in the pond and there was no way I was going to hug that dog with him smelling like that.
It’s hard to believe that just under two years ago we were giving him his very first bath at our old house.

It’s really funny to look at his puppy photos and see how his facial expressions really haven’t changed all that much over the past two years. He just weighs fifty more pounds.....

For those of you who may not know, we adopted Duke the day after Thanksgiving in 2011 from the Humane Society. His original name was "Jabo", and it was totally love at first sight. He was so excited when we first met that he started scooting around the floor on his belly. Sold. He came home to be our child dog dog-child and has made us laugh every day since. Seriously guys, adopt a dog. Best. Decision. Ever.
Leaving the shelter with our new baby!

Christmas 2012

Okay, enough with the puppy-dog cuteness. Who else is excited about a three-day weekend? This has been one roller-coaster week for sure, so I’m definitely looking forward to a lazy weekend, some cookouts, and a few hours at the pool. I hope all of you have a safe and happy weekend!  :)
Just kidding, one more:

Okay, I'm done now, I promise.
"You are the Lord, You alone. You have made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them; and You preserve all of them; and the host of heaven worships You."  ~Nehemiah 9:6
