Happy first birthday MAX! I can’t believe he is already one year old. This calls for a celebration.

Do you remember how little he was? I introduced you to Maxwell in this blog post (click the link to see how small he was – cuteness overload). He quickly won our hearts and became Sparky’s best friend. Fuzzy (our cat) on the other hand is still skeptical. He has made many appearances on the blog including this post about National Dog Day (Sparky gets featured too). Both of our dogs are norfolk terriers and we frequent their favorite store – Lucky Dog Barkery all the time. The birthday treats are from their store and the dogs absolutely love them. They are made with yogurt and are healthier than they look. On this day, we invited my blog photographer’s dog to join us. Annie is a beautiful golden doodle and she was so well-behaved. She sat patiently while Mary and I tried to corral Max in to the perfect birthday cake shot. Thank goodness I didn’t try to put a candle on it. He attacked the cake the minute I presented it. Don’t worry, I didn’t let him have the entire cake that day.

As cute as he is, he has caused some major damage this year. My banister is chewed up, he made several holes in our runner on the stairs and he tore a large hole in the formal living room drapery sheers. Just so he could see out and bark at anyone passing by. Please let the puppy phase come to an end.

Pets bring such joy to our lives. I don’t know what I would do with out them. Happy 1st birthday MAX!  xoxo- Tanya
