It is hard to believe but Ambrose is 11 months old today. It is shocking that I have had to put up with his goofiness since he came to live with us in February. I am always saying bad things about him but, while he does drive me crazy, he does some good things. He is a sweet boy and gets along with everyone. He has good play skills and is always up for a game of chase or bitey face or tug. He minds me when tell him to leave my toys alone.

We have many photos of goofy Ambrose. Barbara decided she wanted some non-goofy photos to show that he is really growing up. I do not want to say how many shots she had to take to get these but we are grateful for digital cameras.

While Ambrose is not much in the obedience department, even I have to admit that he has learned a really good recall. When Barbara says "come", Ambrose comes fast.

So while Ambrose is a pest, a doofus and a goofball, he is our goofball and I think that we will keep him.

Happy 11 mos day. And our hu-dad is very grateful for his digital camera. Apparently it takes a lot of pictures to capture us "behaving," whatever that is.

It's been amazing watching Ambrose grow up. I hope he never grows out of his goofiness.

Yuh, he may be goofy, but he is your brother and I bet he really looks up to you. Still a teenager though, sigh.

He has really grown up fast! We can't believe he is almost a year. He looks very dignified in those pictures.
