Happy Birthday!

closeup of Alfie's face as an 8-wk-old puppy; he's lying down with his head on the rug

A year old already?  Seems like just yesterday we were bringing home this little guy...

Alfie in the backyard at 8 weeks; he's just a little round mass of chocolate curls with tiny tail arched over his back and an inquisitive look on his face


Alfie's being held in the car on someone's lap; he's got his blue jacket on and is looking intently at the camera

...and now he's getting so grown up!

Alfie today, much bigger and leaner looking; he's jacketed, in a down stay next to a clear pond and has a happy, relaxed smile on his face

My birthday wish for Alf?  That he'll have a long and happy life working...and playing...with someone he loves!

I agree, the time flies so quickly! These puppies and blogs make me so aware of that. Happy birthday, Alfie! Hope you get some fun presents!
