Happy First Birthday Auggie!

When I took Auggie for his vet check after adopting him, I had to give him a birthday since his was unknown.  #orphanpuppy. The vet estimated him in early July to be between 9 months and a year, so I split the difference and chose August 28th, also the day of remembrance for his namesake, St. Augustine.  {More about his name, click here.}

My little Barney loved his birthday and Christmas and always got right into his presents. So, I wasn’t sure how Auggie would be about presents. But, last Sunday, August 28th, was his day and Auggie celebrated his FIRST BIRTHDAY!!  He wasn’t real sure about wearing the party hat, but was happy with having a party!

The guest of honor to his party was his favorite puppy, and Auggie was definitely sniffing out the presents…
And, suggested puppy wear the party hat instead….
Happy Auggie doggie! 
After a little help with the bag, he was digging into the box, like he knew just what to do…
New toys + New bowls! And, just like any good kid, the $1 Dollar Tree rope toy has been his favorite. Although he does dig out of the toy box and give regular playtime to all of his toys as evidenced by my living room looking like a toddler lives here. 
(Those Slurp and Savor bowls were a Home Goods find, love them!) 
Slurp definitely fits Auggie as he makes a bit of a mess with his water, especially after a walk!
Which of course there was a birthday walk too! 
All in all a good party and a fun time to celebrate this little shining light to me!  
It’s hard to believe he’s only been with me for 2 months and I constantly say I can’t believe how blessed I am to have such a great little doggie, again. My requirements were (1) hypo-allergenic and (2) have personality and it’s safe to say both of those are checked off with certainty!
The birthday boy was all pawtied out after a very full day of fetch and a walk! 
(Also, his favorite bone is always nearby.)
Happy Birthday little Auggie doggie, here’s to many many more!
