Happy Derby Day!!

Today is Derby's first birthday! Ahhh, how is it possible my little spotted monster is a year old?

We had a really great day - obedience class this morning followed by swimming and playing with our best Golden friends. We then headed to our favorite holistic pet store where Derby got to see more friends and give out lots of hugs and kisses. This afternoon he got a "special birthday bath" (how's that for a positive spin) and then we had a little party with the "grandparents" complete with puppy ice cream and new toys. Whew! I'm sure he could keep going (and going and going), but *I'm* exhausted.

Without getting all mushy, all I can say is that I just love this spotty boy. :) Even though he sometimes makes me want to pull my hair out, he makes me smile and laugh out loud every single day. I'm looking forward to many fun adventures together!

Speaking of, we've got a month or so break from our weekend dock diving adventures, but I though I'd share video from our last dock diving practice. He's really getting some air! Whodathunk I'd have myself a little diving spotty?

Happy Birthday, Derby pup! Here's to many, many more!

Happy Birthday, Derby!! Sounds like you had a fun birthday, except for maybe the "birthday bath." Of course, since you love water so much, maybe a bath was more fun than we think!

Awesome dock diving video. Made me grin from ear to ear. VERY fun to watch. I think this boy is a definite dock diving superstar!!

Congrats Derby! Sounds like he had a great day! :)

Derby says thanks for the birthday wishes!

He might like to swim, but isn't a big fan of baths. He does sing in the shower though. It sounds like a lovely cross between bad opera and a sick cow. :)
