A look down memory puppies grow

Well, it is a year know since we picked up Copper from his mom and litter mates being 12 weeks old and adorable. Looking back at the pictures, I can't believe how much he has grown since then. See for yourself...
When you get a puppy, take as many pictures as you can..they won't stay small for long.
A puppy arrives full of promise for years of fun, friendship and joy. A puppy grows at a remarkable rate-from a helpless baby to a strong, mature athlete in just 18 months or so. As far as myself, I always believe, my puppy will become a Superdog, very smart, the best search, obedience, agility hound ever and so on. It is during the first year that I, although reluctantly begin to conclude that he's a good dog, alas he's no Superdog after all. It's funny, but at about the same time I realize it doesn't matter. We're in this together. And I'm in it for the long haul. So I believe for the remainder of our years together, I learn to accept my dog's minor faults as willingly as he accepts mine. It's something a dog teaches you in exchange for a warm bed and some attention.

Puppies also change a household, and more than by merely eating cushions and stealing socks. They also invigorate and raise the alertness level of all other inhabitants. And while a baby dog brings pooping and peeing, puppy breath and shoe chewing, he also brings something from a higher place. That something is hope. And for that reason alone, a puppy is a treasure beyond price!


  1. I LOVE the pictures! How cute! You are right a puppy is a treasure beyond price and I often suffer from puppy envy.

  2. Yes, I must admit, I suffer from it too. I remember the "ahh's" and "ohh so cute" comments when I took Copper to puppy class in Petsmart. Time flies...

  3. so sweet!!
