Our sweet boy Jake is 1 today! I can't believe it slipped my mind. Where did August go?
So, we will be planning a late birthday party and pug cake smash for him, but in the meantime he get's a glorified blog post.
Thanks Jake, for being the coolest, most pain in the ass, gross, stubborn, derpy, cute little dog. You're an amazing cuddler, think it is funny to attack my feet randomly, plow into everyone's shins and have made friends with so many people. The kids love it when you go on "walkies" to the school and they get to pet you while we wait on your humans. You're an excellent cleaner- you regularly eat your own poop so I don't have to clean it (so gross). You put up with Nathan's shenanigans and Madeline's baby "pets" which aren't as nice as they should be. Anytime an alarm goes off you make sure to let the whole neighborhood know, as well as when a random piece of paper spooks you.
You entered our life at the most inopportune time, while we were headed to the hotel on Fort Leonard Wood as we were finishing up our PCS leave and didn't even have an address assigned to us yet. I was 6 months pregnant with Maddie but something about your goofy face and cute personality won our hearts and we threw our checkbook at the pet store and walked out with a new family member.
Thanks for being my favorite and happy birthday!
