Seven years ago today, the snuggle monster that is Griswold Walter (a.k.a Mr. Floppy) was born at ARF.
|Excuuuuuuuuuuse may! Dat. Fayssssssss.|
He was one of six (I think) puppies that were born at the center. We had originally looked at Griswold's brother (shhhhh! Don't tell him), but quickly found out that Griswold was meant for us. He watched us the entire time we were there.

I have been saving this Puppy Cake for months! It's the red velvet kind, and I added a carob-covered strawberry because Griswold appreciates fine desserts. He wanted that cake so very badly he was shaking and whining something fierce.
We have been working on the trick "Blow out the candle," (strike that off our bucket list) but it was torturous watching him trying to focus on the trick and the cake at the same time. But here's what the trick looks like (because I think it's super-cute, but when aren't dogs cute?).
We didn't throw a party or anything for Griswold's birthday. The boys' BarkBox (click on the link to receive 10% off AND a box will be donated to charity) subscription has supplied us with plenty of treats and toys. Although, I really wanted to make this I-have-no-words-for-how-adorable-this-idea-is from Pretty Fluffy. We just might have to have an unbirthday party.
I'm finally starting to get into the summer swing (or summer slide perhaps is more appropriate) which has me to the point where I'm ready to delve into some crafties for Gris and Coop. They just threw me a wicked side eye (my husband did too). Hoping to have one posted by the end of the week!
Happy Birthday Mr. Gris! We love your face!
