Jake is one year old!

Our puppy Jake is one year old today. He’s had more cuddles, playtime and attention than is usual on a work day, which he’s clearly enjoyed, but obviously he has no idea what a birthday is, nor the importance humans place on them. That’s okay.

Today was also a normal day, in this case meaning bath day for Jake. The photo above shows Jake in the bath (I love the water drops showing up—since he’s having a bath, does this mean he’s in his birthday suit?). This weekend he’ll attend the sixth birthday party for his human cousin (by his cousin’s request). Jake truly is a member of the family.

Jake’s blood brother is also one year old today.

Jake, who is busy on patrol at the moment, making sure the perimeter is secure, asked me to thank you all for the birthday wishes.

Happy Birthday Jake!

As a new dog owner I know the sense of joy you have by having a dog in the house. Especially the awesome welcome I get from him when I get home from being away. The part I really enjoy the most are the walks/runs we have and can't wait for spring and summer to arrive!
