Happy Birthday to our little man, Hooch! Hooch turned 1 year old on May 24, 2015.
Where did the time go?! It seems like just yesterday this little guy stole my heart and joined our family! We cannot be happier with this pooch, as he has the sweetest temperament, and a heart of gold. Not a day has gone by since we brought him home that we haven’t laughed out loud – Hooch is truly one-of-a-kind !
Hooch’s first birthday fell on a weekend when we were in West Virginia at a dock diving event, but we didn’t let that stop us from celebrating! I baked a cake and cupcakes to bring along to share with Hooch’s dock diving buddies. Hooch and Cello watched carefully over the oven as the birthday treats baked.
(I noticed after the picture was taken I had placed the “1” backwards!!…oops!)
Hooch had an abundance of birthday toys waiting for him in our camper when he woke up:
The announcer at the dock diving event even wished Hooch a happy birthday!
Happy First Birthday, Hooch…we love you!
Happy 4th birthday to Limoncello!
On March 14, 2015, Cello turned 4!
Over the past year, Cello has:
- continued to achieve in dock diving
- adapted to multiple fosters in the house
- welcomed her new brother (she even occasionally pretends like she likes her brother, Hooch!)
- added new adventures to her “been there” list
- grown a white goatee
- became an ambassador for TurboPup
Cello continues to be happy and energetic – and we love her so much! Happy Birthday, pretty girl!
On January 24, Hooch turned 8 months old! I can’t believe how much he’s changed in just 6 months! He’s 49 pounds now, and slightly taller than his sister, Cello. To see just how much he’s changed, click HERE and scroll through the pictures!
Over the past month, Hooch has traveled to Pennsylvania several times to practice his diving, went on a hike, won a contest where his painted picture will be on a greeting card, and has participated in his first official DockDogs dock diving event!

Our little man is sure getting big!
Happy 8 month birthday, Hooch!
This Friday, March 14, Cello turned three years old! I truly cannot believe it has already been three years that we have been lucky enough to have her in our life.
I’d say Cello had a pretty good birthday! …See if you agree!
I put together a “Basket of Birds for the Birthday Bird Dog,” which she discovered, and helped herself to her birthday goodies (after the “OK” command of course)!
Cello’s Aunt Casey stopped by and dropped off a nice birthday card, and a birthday gift! …Thanks Aunt Casey and Cousin James!
My very cool shirt from Casey and James…perfect!
Then, Cello had a birthday treat of fresh rotisserie chicken, green beans, and carrots…
And THEN, her Daddy took her on a shopping spree to PetSmart to pick out her own birthday treats….
I think overall, this birthday gal had a GREAT day!
Happy 3rd Birthday, Cello…we love you!!!
Aunt Joyce and Uncle Johnny, and friends Chris and Cindy and their dog, Memphis (one of Cello’s boyfriends) joined us on this trip. I had a great birthday – we hiked, then had a little birthday party around the campfire with cake and cupcakes!

Happy Birthday to me! …camping style!
