My doggie turned a whole year old November 29th (by our estimation). We've had her for nine of those months.
I came this close to becoming an obsessed pet parent and hosting a birthday party for her, but stopped myself short. Instead, she received a bunch of stuffed animals and chew toys. All but one have survived.
Shelby witnessed firsthand how Helen felt about birthday bear!
My kids are either tweens, teens, or out of the house so it's been like raising a toddler all over again when we got Helen. She's kept me on my toes. She's not a bad dog, she's just very rambunctious. With the exception of taking a dookie behind our living room chair every day, she's been fairly easy to train. I'm not quite sure if I'll ever get her broke of that bad habit, or if I'll be destined to doggie dookie duty all the days of my life.
Happy 1st birthday to Helen Dog Heck! Here's hoping we have many more years to celebrate with our furry friend.
