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 did not stay timid for long! You quickly came out of your shell with us, though you were still shy around new people. You were born in the city and had never seen grass, and you absolutely loved the backyard.

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.

Smiles!

The first time you went to sleep in the toy box, I freaked out because I couldn't find you anywhere!

Puppy kisses.

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!! ♥

Hi Camille! Happy Birthday to your pup! Is she a pitbull? We have a 14 month old pitbull we adore. Her name is Cocoa. Aren't they the best doggies? OMG, I can't even handle it when people say they are awful dogs!
