Happy Birthday Moose!!!

Today is my other baby...err dog's 2nd birthday!! He's come a looooong way from the cracked out puppy we brought home! Our original plan when we decided to get another dog was to get a French Bulldog. They're so ugly they're cute and I couldn't resist those ears. I started researching breeders online and discovered they are CRAZY expensive. I guess because of their big heads, they have to be delivered by C-section which allows breeders to jack up the price. We weren't ready to through down over $1,000 on a dog so I gave up on the idea. A few weeks later I get an email alert about a puppy on the website I'd been using. There was a mixed dog available who was 1/2 Beagle and 1/2 French Bulldog. Well that was perfect! We already had one beagle...and he was still part Frenchie. So we drove 10 hours to West Plains, MO (an experience ALL in itself) to pick up our little bundle of joy! Here's a few pics of baby Moose...he was such a cutie! Happy Birthday Moosey!!! I can't wait to see you....mama's coming home real soon!!!

Moose's First Day. He only weighed a few pounds!
You have to love me....look at that face
Not the brightest crayon in the box. Yes folks. He has a dryer vent hose stuck to his head. We of course, being the good parents that we are....took a picture first...THEN helped him get it off

Moose's First Christmas...gotta love the butt flap PJ's. They were too big that year...by the next year they didn't come close to fitting.

Camping in Hocking Hills

First snow storm....the snow was deeper than he was
