Happy 1st Birthday Boris

I'd forgotten how much work puppies were! Boy did you re educate me quickly, with the digging up of my lovely garden, the almost constant removal of slugs and stones from your mouth, the endless trips outside every hour on the hour day and night to potty, it took you weeks to get the hang of toilet training didn't it, where did all that poop come from in one so small?

I was exhausted after one week, had I made a mistake, I was starting to think so! 
We've had fun times too didn't we and over time you started to learn. You learnt about the clicker and before long we were on a roll, learning new things everyday, you have such a powerful drive to learn and willingness to please it's amazing and I enjoyed teaching you too. We had a few problems along the way with your surgery but thankfully we had a good insurance policy from Pet Plan, so no need to worry about those thousands of pounds it cost to get you pain free. 

I've loved every minute of our first year together, even the naughty ones. To me you're perfect in every way, the love of my life and bring so much joy and happiness too every single day.

Love, love, love swimming in the sea, much more fun than paddling in muddy puddles :)

  7. Doesn't time pass so quickly when you have a puppy - we've had Harry 6 months already! Love the video - I need to show it to Harry as he is still not sure about the sea. He's OK if the water is calm but does not do waves. Here's looking to many more happy years together with Boris and thank you for adding this post to #ANimalTales.
