Hey everyone, thanks for all the +1s!!
Probably the cutest thing Griffin did on his birthday was when +Maeve Curtin
and I got home. We sat down with his presents on the couch and asked him to come over. He seriously thought he was in trouble. But then we sang him "happy birthday", and he KNEW his evening was going to be GREAT! He started smelling my hands, sniffing around, wondering where we were hiding all his presents! Then we gave him two squeaky toys and he was overjoyed.
In this picture, Griffin's lifting his paw to shake before dinner. He knows he can't eat until his shakes hands, and so he kept lifting his paw and lifting but we were taking pictures so we didn't shake back!! He started actually crying about it! (Sorry Griff!) I finally shook his hand and he loved every single bit of his dinner: Lamb chops, peas, and cheddar grits. His favorites!
Finally we gave him a cookie and a new collar. He licked his old collar. I'm still not sure if he wanted to keep it... I'm pretty sure he did. But the new one's softer, I think it's more comfortable. So he's wearing it for now.
