The Love Of My Life

This week marks Charlie's 6 month birthday and 4 months that we have had him! I can't believe that it has been that long. It seems like we brought him home just yesterday..

From day one, Charlie has been the sweetest, most loving little guy. I will never forget going to the breeder, when he waddled over to me, crawled into my arms and just fell asleep. I am such a sap, but honestly that's when I knew that he was the one and that I just had to take him home.

It has been such an amazing experience watching him grow and develop his own sassy personality. He is goofy and silly and perfect! He brings so much happiness and entertainment into our lives every day, and we adore him with our whole hearts. The funniest thing about having a dog for us has been co-parenting. Figuring out who sets the rules, and who breaks them. Who is the 'good guy' and who is the 'bad guy.' {yupp, you guessed it, I am the latter in both cases. and i can't even make any excuses for myself besides the fact that when he looks at me with those eyes, my heart melts}

And even more than that, it is all about hard work, schedule coordinating and priorities. {In our pre-furbaby days, happy hour shindigs were our thing. Not any more.} But all this has truly made me realize what a great father Matt will be one day. He is so dedicated and compassionate with Charlie, that I can't wait to see him with our non-furry babies.

And with all of that said, here is a little video I accidentally found yesterday. It is Charlie's first day home with us! Look how stinkin' tiny he is! And please ignore the annoying background noise. That would be my annoying voice :P




Edited to Add: Here is a video of Charlie we took last week, doing his sit, shake, down, roll tricks :))) He is such an over-achiever!
