oh my auggie

Payton is six!

Hard to believe it has been six years since my little guy was born.
I love my Payton so much. We have had six years of struggles and I anticipate those struggles will probably continue – at some point, maybe he will become an easy dog to own; maybe he will become a dreamily simple agility dog; but more than likely, he will challenge me every step of the way. If difficult dogs make great dog trainers, he will transform me into a master.
As my journey with Auggie was summed up by the Garth Brooks song “The Dance,” my life with Payton can be described with “The River.”
Each day a constant battle just to stay between the shores.
None of it matters, because I the beauty is that we get to sail our vessel together.


Blue cupcakes for my big boy. The frosting came with these fish sprinkles, so why not? I went ahead and put them on.
The cupcake papers are that same sheep design that is hidden on the plate.


Here are three dogs who are very aware there are cupcakes sitting up there on the railing.


Rizzo wearing a hat… yep. That’s a good thing.


A verrrry good thing.


KK has this down now. He knows cake is coming and he’s totally on board.


Okay, so, back to the birthday boy. Happy birthday my big man. Time for your cake.


Do you think he was anticipating this release to his cupcake at all?


Aaaaand he tried to eat the whole thing in one bite.


Licking crumbs and icing and fish sprinkles.


You should try to find someone in your life who looks at you like Kaner is looking at his cupcake.


Kane had a bit more sense to chew his cupcake rather than inhale it whole but it was still intense for a minute there.


Yeah I eated it.


Rizzo has no idea what’s happening but he wants to eat his hat thing on his head and also the other dogs seem happy so okay.


Waiting for cupcake… waaaaaaiting for cupcake.


NOM.
Eating cupcakes is easier to figure out than hunting Easter Eggs.

Happy birthday my awesome little P. I love you very, very much.
