the day we brought him home

first he graduated from beginner obedience training.


it's amazingly difficult to keep a graduation cap on a dog's head. huh.

Then he grew out of the harness we gave him.


this dog park was empty of other dogs but full of poop. not like.

Now he’s learning to lift a leg to pee (he used to always just lean forward a little in the most adorably bizarre way).

what next?? our little dude is growing up.


this face kills me

he appreciates this coat in 18 degree weather

    Your dog is ridiculously cute. Look at those eyes. He could get away with murder.

    It’s the ears that get me…

    (oh, and hello! this is my first time vising you)

      oh hello! :) no joke Kerry, your “tabithaversary” post last fall made my heart explode into a million billion pieces. I think that’s when I went to zach and was like “oh we need to stop messing around and get a dog already. I might die if we don’t.” zach also had never had a dog before, and like craig he now understands why I would go absolutely bonkers at every dog I would see on the street.

    oh. my. goodness. what a little love.

    our pup starts obedience classes next week… thanks for the heads up about the cap! :) that is, assuming she makes it that far…

    • d-day says:

      is it someplace like Petsmart or something? she will pass, no worries! :) what kind of dog is she?

      • Caitlin says:

        we almost went for Petsmart but the county dog training club gives a discount for having a rescued dog. we liked that policy.

        she’s a mutt… the rescue’s best guess was german shepherd/shiba inu. a half-size german shep with white socks, curly tail and a wrinkly face. :)
