Happy Birthday, Aries!
My sweet Arie Berry, you are now 1 year old! I remember when I saw you for the first time; you were just 9 weeks old. You were so sweet, so timid. You snuggled into my lap the whole way home. I knew you must be sad, missing your mom and littermates. I could feel my heart making a place for you right then and there. You were my new baby.
|You immediately became Molly's little follower, looking up to her and trying to do everything she did.|
|Your first night home, you ate all of Molly's bones!|
|Back when you were smaller than Kaylee!|
|You couldn't get enough of running around outside and rolling in the grass!|
|I never need a leash for you because you always stay near me.|
|You love to explore and play outside with your "sisters."|
For months after we got you, you had accidents and chewed up everything in the house! You were such a naughty boy. I am glad to say that you are finally house-trained and know to only chew dog toys and bones!
|You even chewed a hole in the carpet!|
|Surrounded by stuff you destroyed.|
|You never did learn the no dogs on the bed rule. But how can I get mad at something so adorable?|
You are such a goofy boy and you are always making me smile.
|The first time you went to sleep in the toy box, I freaked out because I couldn't find you anywhere!|
You seem to have no idea how big and strong you are getting. You still act like a big baby! When you accidentally run into someone, you knock them over and/or bruise them with your brick-like head! Luckily, you are careful around Kaylee and other kids.
|I'm sorry I dressed you up as a butterfly, I couldn't resist!|
|You are recovering from being neutered in this pic, poor baby!|
|You love to play with my mom-in-law's Great Dane.|
You have grown up into such a big, lovable dog. You are still a puppy at heart but you have a lot of potential. I still think you would love to do therapy work. When you calm down and get a bit better with your obedience, you will be the perfect therapy dog.
|You behave better for Kaylee than you do for Steven and me!|
|You sure love your sisters. =)|
|My handsome boy!|
Thank you for being part of our family. You add a lot of love to the mix. And you drive me crazy sometimes but you've really taught me to be a more patient and calm person. Love you, Aries!! ♥
