So this is going to be our final post as a "puppy" owner in this subgroup. As of today, Austin is a 1yr old "dog". But truth is, he's still such a puppy :D

These first 10 months with him have been quite a journey. I never knew I could love anyone, person or animal as much as I love Austin. I love how he rests his head in the cradle of my arm while we drive, his nose pressing against me. How he's such a goof-ball at times, making me laugh and act silly. How he has sat with me, providing quiet support, like a mature adult when I was going through a low. How he drives me nuts one minute, but has me doubling with laughter the next, thinking how silly the whole thing is. Love his smile, his big brown eyes, miss his tiny puppy teeth though they tore up my skin, absolutely love his wet kisses. Love the attitude he gives me when he wants his way, and when that doesn't work, he'll break into a smile, which will most often make me give in to him. He's the perfect puppy! It's funny how everyone's dog turns out to be the most perfect one they could ever have wished for, isn't it? :)

We had a nice party for him with his doggie friends. I also took him hiking, his favorite activity, and he got really great goodies to eat, plus a bunch of gifts. Here's a link to his Birthday album. You don't need a Facebook account to look at the photos. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.258926860834020.62308.235055296554510

If you do have a Facebook account, here's Austin's page. You can "like" his page to see more of his photos :)

No help needed, I've got it Mom!


Ok, maybe some help...

He is a handsome Young Man! He looks like he had a good Barkday with his friends. Enjoy your little guy.
The nice thing about a Golden is that the sun is always shineing on their backs. Every day is a good day. I they make your day good too.:)

That's so true... every morning, no matter which side of the bed you get up, one look at that face waiting for you, turns things around :)

What great pictures and Austin is just soooo handsome. I know he had a great time and you must have enjoyed yourself so much. Nothing better than good friends and a doggie meet up.

Happy Birthday little Austin, you are beautiful and can't wait to see what surprises the next year opens to you.

Wow - Austin is a knock out! Gorgeous boy with a great coat for a one year old. You must be very proud. Those doggie treats/cake look good enough for a human to eat. :) Happy B-day Austin.

Happy Birthday Austin :)

Thank you all for the wishes :) Austin would have done his wiggle-butt dance if he knew he was getting all this attention. It's so hard to believe that he has transitioned from a cuddly puppy to a handsome dog. Just 4 months back, his tail was still thin, without the feathers. And now, he has a beautiful mane and featherings...

Thank you. I must admit, I did taste the "frosting" on his cake :p: hehehe... it wasn't bad, it was like whipped buttermilk+sour cream, with vanilla flavoring, no sugar. Not as tasty as people food, but "definitely" healthier... and all the pups loved it :)
