Default Happy Birthday, Dance!

Tomorrow is Dance's first birthday! I can't believe she's a year old already. I remember looking at pictures of her and her litter last year, from April until June. I had decided that for whatever reason, that I wasn't going to get a Toller until Summer '08. I really liked the breeding that Dance resulted from though, and in June I had decided that I simply had to have a puppy from that litter, if by chance there were still any girls available. I knew my chances were slim, since most people have to be put on a waiting list for a Toller pup and then have to wait 6 months or more for their puppy. I knew it wouldn't hurt to ask though, just in case. So, later on that evening I contacted the breeder and told her a bunch of stuff about myself, and asked if by chance she happened to have any female pups still available. She told me that the puppy she had planned on keeping was looking for a home for various reasons, and that she'd like for us to come and visit. I fell in love with Dance (who was back then, 'Snuggle') instantly. She was perfect... everything I'd hoped for in a puppy. About a week or so later, I brought her home. She's been an absolute dream of a puppy, and has brought so much fun into my life. She's had her quirks, and her issues, but we worked through them together and are coming along really well. The only major issue we ever have now is only with judges at shows, and that's almost 100% my fault for getting so stressed out. Anybody who has ever met her can't believe what a special, sweet, fun-loving girl she is. I've never met a happier, more content with life dog. She lives to have fun and make everyone around her, and especially me, happy. She's an absolutely amazing dog and I hope to have many, many more years with her!

It's hard to believe she looked like this a year ago:

And the very first picture her breeder sent to me, at about 7 weeks old:

We have classes tomorrow night so she won't be able to have a full meal (or else she'll fall asleep in class), so I gave her an early birthday dinner tonight - chicken. For whatever reason, chicken is her favourite thing to eat and I don't give it to her often, so I thought tonight would be a good night for her to have it. Tomorrow she'll be getting a couple of new toys (Orbee balls), and after she's done with her false pregnancy, she'll get a new squeaky toy.

Here she is enjoying her b-day dinner:

More pictures and such coming...

She's changed so much over the last year... she went from my little hamster-faced puppy:

Then into looking like a young dog...

Happy Birthday, Beautiful Dance
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves. ~Buddha

Stupid is the most notoriously incurable and contagious disease known to mankind. If you find yourself in close proximity to someone infected with stupid, walk away as soon as said infection is noted.

There are few things more nauseating than pure obedience. ~ Kvothe
