To my precious pup

Today the 2nd love of my life, Elvis the dog, turns one year old. And yes, if you're wondering, Kennedy is the 1st.

Elvis has brought much adventure, joy, and laughter to our otherwise monotonous lives and we want to celebrate him today!

Kennedy and I got Elvis a new tag for his collar with his name and my number. We also got him several toys, which I dumped out of a bag onto the floor and let him carry every single one over to his dog bed. This dog is so spoiled, but he deserves it!

Hopefully, now that Elvis is an official "adult", we hope for him to have shed these habits:
1. Digging through the bathroom trash and clamping his jaw around things you don't want to imagine.
2. Knocking glasses and cups off of tables to get to their contents.
3. Biting through computer cords and other various wires.
4. Barking at the toad in the back yard.
5. Commencing a game of "chase" every time we try to put his leash on.

Things that we hope Elvis NEVER grows out of!
1. "Hating cats" - from Kennedy
2. Snuggling (and burrowing into our sides and neck so hard that he cuts off his air supply and snorts like a pig)
3. His curious personality
4. His extreme excitement any time he hasn't seen us for at least 5 seconds.
5. His head tilt when we talk to him like a human.

We love you, Elvis! Happy Birthday!

I love it! Tell Elvis Happy Birthday from his aunt Stephanie and Uncle Stinson. I can't believe he is a year already!
