This weekend is my lovely, skinny, big eared puppy's first birthday. I cannot believe how fast this past year has gone. Oh, how I long to hold the little Finny in my arms again and carry him around. Just for a day, then I would want the big one year old back. Puppies are a lot of work and this past year has been full of puppy work.
Indulge me for a moment while I write about my baby boy...
The best things about Finn:
-He never chews on anything except his dog toys. I rarely have to wonder "what is Finn doing?" because I know he is just playing with his toys.
-He comes when he is called, will sit, give paw, lay down, and play dead (and he learned all of this in less than an hour. The boy is smart!)
-He is the cuddliest dog I have ever met. He still wants to sit in my lap (even though he is far too big) and he quietly sleeps next to me all night.
-He will wear clothes!
-He has the biggest ears EVER. We always thought he would grow into them, but he hasn't. They are still too big for his head and I love them.
The not so best things about Finn:
-He is super, duper nervous and these nerves have created a lot of angst in our household.
