Yes it really is that Hairy Hound's First Birthday. It seems impossible to think that we first picked out this tiny scrap when he was just 4 weeks old. He bounded into our lives and has brought along a lot of laughs and a few tears along the way.....
.....he is still a very naughty, mischievious puppy, for instance his favourite trick is sleeping on Mr F's chair (sometimes jumping onto the chair when Mr F has just got up to make a cuppa) and yes I KNOW he's snuggled up next to one of my quilts!! and he snores louder than Mr F and as for Jasper's farts - well, they certainly are silent but deadly. He recently picked up a frog and ran around and around the lawn with it in his mouth - much to the amusement of Mr F - luckily the frog escaped with nothing more than a free ride across the garden, and then another day Jasper picked up a freshly laid egg, which he proudly carried around, wagging his tail so hard we thought it was going to drop off - and very obediently sat down, opened his mouth and let me take the egg out - and any damage to the egg? No, not even a crack.....
.....and here is the Birthday Boy himself, tucking into his supper - looking every inch the Handsome Hound that he has become, and wearing his new collar that we bought for him. Happy Birthday Jasper - here's looking forward to lots more fun and lots more birthdays with you!
