Roon Bug's Birthday

July 18th, 2011, the approximate day that my puppy was born.  A year ago today, he was a squishy little ball of wrinkles with a mama and some siblings.  I wouldn't meet his sweet furry face for another four months -- it's weird to think that he existed that long without me.  I love my little booger probably more than a dog can be loved, and today I made sure he especially knew it. 

For some reason I really wanted a picture of my hound in an old school paper birthday hat.  I convinced myself that I could make it happen, even though I sort of knew he'd rip the hat off of his head and shred it with pleasure.  Somehow I captured this shot.  And by "somehow", I mean that I dangled a plastic fork-full of peanut butter in front of his face to distract him from the embarassing celebratory cap atop his furry bean.  Thank goodness it worked, because I was able to capture this photo.  I cannot begin to describe how much I love this photo, so I won't.

Happy Birthday, Rooney! <3
