Daxter Turns 1!

We’re taking a short break from the regularly scheduled post-cruise post (heh) for this very special occasion! Everybody please join me in wishing a very happy first birthday to Daxter!!

To celebrate, I took Daxter to Dogma Bakery and Wylie Wagg to pick up some birthday treats!


Don’t worry, I didn’t give it all to them! Not yet, anyway… hehe. The pups waited in rapt anticipation:


Harry was giving Daxter some serious evil eye… a little jealous of the attention, I think!


But don’t worry, he got to reap the benefits of the celebration too, of course! A “Peamutt Butter” muffin for each, yumyum!


They finished every scrumptious bite, and then licked the crumbs off the floor! Guess I don’t need to mop today, huh? Happy Birthday, puppy! Yes, there may be chewing, pooping, barking, whining, and other general puppyness, but I couldn’t imagine life without you!




  1. Like.

  2. I think I’m in love with these doggies! <3 I couldn't imagine my life without them either! They make excellent roommates. 😉

  3. Oh my gosh. ADORABLE. I have to ask what breed Dexter is. He almost looks like a white Scottie! (My husband and I have a black Scottie named Horatio.)

    Also, hello! I’ve been lurking for a little while and I LOVE your blog. 🙂

    • Thanks, Liz! Daxter is a white miniature schnauzer, so not too far off from the Scottie breed (terrier love, hehe!) 🙂 I’m headed to your blog to check out Horatio right now – what a fabulous name for a dog 🙂

  4. Happy Birthday Daxter!! He’s so cute 🙂

  5. Your puppies are the cutest!! I have a mini schnauzer too named Finn! (And a labradoodle and lab!)

    • Thanks Caroline! I like ’em. 🙂 I checked out some pics of your fur babies on your blog – they’re adorable!
