guess who turned 8 (or 56)?


my baby, LG!!!
We call him LG. Short for "little guy". 
Even though, by most people's standards, he is not, in fact, little at all. 
For some reason, we thought he was small for a male aussie. 


He is the apple of our eye and a huge part of our lives.
Sometimes I don't think he's at all aware that he is not a human being. 
Since he sleeps on the bed, travels with us, has his own room 
(until he has to share with a real human baby), and cuddles excessively…
and wants nothing to do with other dogs.

LG just loves to be around his "people" pack.

So because he is our fur baby (our only child for now), 
his mama woke up early to celebrate his 8th birthday…
complete with a hat, presents and a delicious birthday treat.









I wanted him to have a super fun birthday and know that he so special and loved.
Looks like I may have succeeded…

Our fur baby, Bauer, turned one (or 7) on the 10th. Likewise he lives his life believing he's human. Fine by us...we love him like a human!!! Happy Birthday to your LG!!!

Happy 8th (or 56th) Birthday LG! Jessah, he is just precious! He is such a good, healthy, and happy looking dog. And, I agree that he does seem on the smaller side than the average male Aussie. Looks like he loved his little celebration :)

Aw, happy birthday to your handsome! I hope he enjoys his toys!!!

Ashley Sanderson said...

Happy birthday LG! Our Stella and Allie are our pride of joy as well! I don't know what I would do without them. Especially through all of our infertility. There were times where I would just sit and cry and both of my girls would just sit there with me, licking my tears. It really bothers our golden, Stella, when I cry. It'll be interesting to see how she tolerates Reagan crying :)

Adorable!

So sweet! Happy birthday LG! Hope you all had a wonderful day.
