It is hard to believe that our once 8-pound puppy is somehow already one year old!
Over the past year he has gained a whopping 70 pounds coming in at a massive 78 pound one-year weigh in. He has grown from the most adorable rollie pollie puppy into a handsome dog right before our eyes. His clumsy puppy trot has been replaced by a long graceful stride, and he has gone from jumping through hula-hoops to clearing fences with ease.
He received his AKC STAR Puppy certificate at 5 months old, completed Cool Dog 1: Puppy Kindergarten, Cool Dog II: Beginning Good Manners, Cool Dog III: Mastering Good Manners, and Cool Dog IV: Mastering Good Manners with Distractions. He has learned sit, lay, wait, stay, come, speak, and high five and can pretty much charm a treat out of anyone.
We are so very thankful for every moment of this precious boy’s life. He has brought us so much joy and love and makes us laugh on a daily basis. He is the epitome of happiness and we adore that about him. Since the first day we brought him home at 8-weeks old, we have only fallen more deeply in love with this dog. We cannot imagine a single day without you Diesel. We will love you forever.
Happy birthday buddy!
