Today is my puppy’s birthday! He is 7 years old today. I can hardly believe it. I truly don’t know where the time went. It seems I was just holding this barely 2lb puppy in my hands and here he is now at almost 20lb. The time has flown by. He has brought me so much happiness and joy! I have a ton of happy memories and I hope to have many more, he is a great gift!
I thought I’d share some baby pics of him with all of you. He was just a tiny little fur ball. It was almost impossible to find his little body in all that fur. This first one is shortly after I brought him home…
Then this one is of him already assuming that he is King of the castle. He used to love this little red bed of his. Now he just tosses it around in the air every once in a while. lol.
This last pic I thought I’d share is Buddy’s first bath. Oh my goodness, it was hilarious! He ran around like a nutcase and as you can see by this picture he was feeling a little ‘crazed’. I still bust a gut laughing at this one.
So, I hope you’ll all join me in wishing Buddy a Happy Birthday and I hope you enjoyed my little trip down memory lane!
Dar….Your baby dog is sooooooo adorable. Happy Birthday to Buddy!!!

Awwww! Happy Birthday to Buddy! My cat turned 12 a couple of weeks ago. I can’t believe it! Seems just like yesterday she was so tiny she fit in the palm of one hand. *sniff, sniff* they grow up so fast!
Happy Birthday to sweet, precious Buddy! I can tell he’s a big part of your life.
Happy birthday Buddy! What a cutie! One of my dogs turned 7 this month also. Where did the last 7 years go? It all went by way too fast!

Such a sweet little baby! We loved to give our Lab baths…afterwards she would run around like the devil was chasing her. We called it “the scoots”.
Happy Birthday to Buddy 🙂
Happy Birthday Buddy! What a sweetie!
Happy Birthday, Buddy! I always ooh and ahh when I come to your page, Dar, and see Buddy over on the right. If he isn’t adorable! They certainly are very special in our lives. I hope he gets a special treat for his birthday!..maybe a big bone or piece of doggie cake!

Happy Birthday Buddy!! Oh Dar, he’s such a cutie! I loved seeing the pics of him as a baby and that crazed bath picture is hysterical. Poor think, he must have been shocked. Dogs are precious family members and Buddy seems like such a joy in your life!!

I love those baby pictures!!! he is so stinking cute I could just squeeze him!! The bath photo made me laugh so loud….that’s what Bruce looks like after he’s out of the tub!! He goes flying through the house and is insane!! I wonder why dogs do that? Happy Birthday Buddy!!! You’re a keeper 🙂
Thanks for sharing Buddy’s baby pictures. Isn’t it wonderful how much our animal family members enrich our lives — happy B-day Buddy!

Happy Birthday Buddy. Oh Dar, the bath picture had me laughing out loud! Aren’t pets the best!?
Oh my gosh, what a little cutie. Those remotes weren’t much bigger than him!
Happy Birthday, Buddy!!! He’s such a CUTIE!! 🙂 I love the bath picture–reminds me of the toy poodle we had when I was growing up. After she got a bath she’d run around upstairs and rub her head against the carpet and just go nuts! So funny to watch.
I hope your boy’s had a fabulous birthday!

Happy Birthday Buddy! What a sweetie!
Of course I’ll join you wishing this cute totally adorable puppy (well, not a puppy anymore but still sooo cute) a Happy Birthday.
Isn’t he just the cutest??!!!!
Aw Happy Happy Birthday to Buddy! I remember when my pooch was a baby, such a furball too. He still gets that crazed look after a bath and runs around like a nutcase. He drags himself on the carpet and tries to dry off, its hilarious.
Thanks for the pictures =)

Happy Birthday Buddy!!! My 9 pound Toy Rat Terrier just turned 7 also. It made me a little sad because that means she’s technically a senior, but since our dogs are smaller breeds they tend to stay with us longer! Many more birthdays to you Buddy!
