graham is one!

Happy Birthday to my sweet baby Graham!


I remember the day we brought you home.  

I wasn't sure about you at first, especially when you immediately tried to pee on the Christmas tree skirt.  
You were so small.


The first few weeks were really tough.  
We had to watch you every single second to make sure you weren't learning bad things.




You had your first bath.

You had your first huge snowstorm.



We took you home at Christmas, where you helped my parents get over the loss of their dog with your sweet face and puppy snuggles.




You also learned some bad habits from them.

You discovered a puppy in the mirror and barked for the first time.


You got bigger.


Bigger.

Bigger.


We got more snow.


You love to ride in the car.


You are so silly.


You didn't get mad when we shaved you.


You made your television debut.


We took you to the dog park many times.  You like people more than dogs.  
You like the water but hate it when your feet don't touch the bottom.




Your favorite thing is the plastic squirrel frisbee that we keep outside.
You pretend you have to pee all the time because you want to play.


You love to perform surgery on your stuffed animals.





Our family would not be complete without you.
Happy Birthday, baby Graham!
