A Year and a Day

It has been one year and one day since I came to live with Barbara and Niamh! This is Barbara's favorite picture of me when I was a puppy. I am trying to cuddle up to Niamh. I missed my brothers and sisters a lot at first and wanted Niamh to like me. You can see pictures of my parents and siblings at Albannach Gordons.

Barbara picked me out of litter because she really liked my temperament and my sweet, mushy face.

I've grown up quite a bit since then and I am very strong and fast.

But because I have had such a lot of socialization and training, I have stayed nice and sweet. I like everyone I meet, people and dogs. I have good play skills because Barbara exposed me to nice dogs when I was little. Scout and I like to play rough but we have a good time. Today we ran around the training center before we practiced our training. It is raining out so I couldn't go to the dog park.

It has been a great year. I have learned so much. I know Niamh makes fun of me on the blog but we really do get along very well and play a lot. She does yell at me though if I annoy her before breakfast when she is watching the deer in the woods.

Barbara thinks I am the sweetest boy and I give good smoochies. She has big plans for me in training. She says that I have to live up to my name which is Albannach Almost Famous. I just want to have fun and get lots of petting, praise and treats

I hope Niamh won't be such a blog hog and will let me post some more. Other than that, life is good.

And that last photo, Ambrose, seals the deal. Blog hogging is a tradition among families. Heck, I even allowed my brat sis to post once in a while.

You're looking very handsome in that last photo, Ambrose! Yes, you have grown up very nicely and, as you mature, we're sure you'll be less the annoying little brother to Niamh and more the fun companion!

Oh Ambrose - I hope Niamh lets you posts more too coz I just love hearing from you!! And Hsin-Yi says she agrees with Barbara - you have the most gorgeous sweet face! And I'm sure you're going to live up to your great expectations on the training front - who could not with such a wonderful mentor as Niamh and such a wonderful trainer as Barbara? :-)
