8 Months Old!

My Dunky boy turned 8 months old yesterday! I can't believe that I have had him for 5 months! It has been a very fun, crazy, EVENTFUL, 5 say the least! As much as I love my big bundle of joy, he sure has put a dent in my savings account, and also has done a good job at making my credit card statement A LOT higher than it should be! But as I have said many times, there is no amount of money I wouldn't pay to make sure Duncan is healthy and safe!  Some of you may be wondering what I have had to pay for. Let's see: at about 4 months old he ate a pack of gum and was in the hospital for 2 days, he ate a sock (and some other items) and needed x-rays to make sure there was no blockage, he got neutered, and last but not least, he got a nasty cold and needed x-rays to make sure he didn't have pneumonia! Whew...long list for a dog that is only 8 months! Unfortunately, Duncan got this cold last Monday, so he has been all stuffed up for about a week. He is not supposed to be around other dogs until his cold is gone. Poor little guy! I couldn't even take him to the dog park on his 8 month "birthday!" I did take him to Petsmart and let him pick out a few bones! I can only imagine what I am going to get him for his actual birthday! I wonder if I should start saving now! He seems to be feeling better today- woohoo!! As much as his puppy antics annoy me, I love Duncan so much and I can't imagine life without him!

He was actually small at one point!! The day I got him!

Enjoying one of his treats!
