Default Payton's Gotcha Day

And I didn't even know it was his Gotcha Day... I knew it was coming up, but I've been juggling so much with buying the house it just sort of slipped by without my noticing. This past week was terribly stressful, particularly on Friday which was his actual Gotcha Day - I wish I had known that was his Gotcha Day, it probably would have helped.

So here's the unknowingly Gotcha Day photos:


A storm rolled through Thursday night and knocked down some big leaf stalks. I gave one to him to play with. Maybe my heart knew it was his Gotcha Day even if my head didn't?


YAY YAY YAY


Stopping to nom on it a bit, butt in the air!


This is your Quintessential Payton photo from this set. Yeah, it's out of focus, but that's part of the Quintessential Payton-ness of it LOL.


This was the only branch we lost in the storm, apparently in another part of town TONS of trees went down. I told him to nom it.


GIANT STICK YEAH

A brief walk down memory lane, in case you forgot... Payton's first day home, when he was still Nameless Baby and thus responded to "puppy."








Can you believe it? I still can't. I still can't even believe I went to get him. My brain was so torn and didn't know if I should really go get him. My heart told me to go get him. I decided for once in my life to just ignore my brain and listen to my heart, and here we are. And once he came home to me I knew it was meant to be. He was supposed to be my puppy and I was supposed to be his person. I had planned to be further along with things than we currently are right now, but I have no regrets about our first of what I hope is many years together.


This also means I'm done with this project! OMG. These last few months have been really uninspiring... he is done growing and our routine is pretty much set without a ton of new stuff going on (or at least new stuff I can take a photo of) so... lots of shots snapped in our quiet time right before bed, or first thing in the morning while I'm getting ready for work.

It may be months before you see another Payton picture now that I don't have to take any LOL. (kidding.)

I can't believe its been a year already! Wow time sure does fly!

I have been stalking your 365 project, and I have to say I LOVE it! You take beautiful pictures, and Payton was such a cute puppy, and he's grown into a beautiful dog!
What a perfect way to keep those memories, they do grow too fast! I wish I had done that with Maddie. With my next puppy, for sure!
