HaPpY BiRtHdAy Todd!!!

Today we are celebrating a birthday at Golden Pines--Can you believe that Todd is already a year old?
I'm not sure where the time has gone.  
~Todd, March 2012~
Its been a busy first year for both Todd and myself!  Even though it had been many years since we had a puppy, I knew that having a one took a lot of time...
~February 2012~
And a little bit, okay a lot, of patience ...   
~January 2012~
To teach a high spirited dog like Todd the things he needs to know...
~December 2011~
Because he seemed so innocent at times....
~Our Christmas card~
Although I have to admit, there have been moments when I have been worried that I've bitten off more than I could chew...
~November 2011~
But I also have to admit that there are just going to be some things that Todd may never totally learn.
~October 2011~
Because he does his own thing and he doesn't always listen...
~September 2011~
Todd is a Scottie after all!!  
~August 2011~
But he's had some great mentors, like Mamma Reggie that we really miss and who really made a difference....
~Todd and Mamma Reggie July 2011~
Through it all Todd found his way and his place in a house full of Goldens and a Wheaten Terrier.  He has learned most, of what he is supposed to ...      
~Todd and Sammy, June 2011~
But this is only his first birthday, so there's still time.  Yes, there are some things that I would now do differently, but I would never change getting a Scottish Terrier.
Todd--May 2011
So, on Todd's very first birthday, I'd like to thank Lynn at Rocky Creek Scotties for her friendship, her advice and for bringing this most special Scottie into our lives.
~Todd, (then Jock) one week old~
Happy Birthday Todd!!


  1. Altogether now...Aaaah!

  32. Kim,
    Thanks for sharing a wonderful first year of Todd's life. He was such a small pup and look how much He has grown in a year.
    So cute sitting at the table in his Birthday attire.
    Hopefully he got to eat a piece of that doggie cookie and then afterwards got a chance to dig a big hole just because it's his special day.

  33. OMG! Happy 1st Birthday Todd!! I know what you mean about getting a puppy. Sometimes it can be overwhelming. I felt the same way when we got Fred. Somedays I thought, "what have I done!" But those days were far and few between and I wouldn't trade him for the world! Todd has come a long way in his first year, he's growing into a great dog and he is still as cute as ever!!

  34. Todd is the most photogenic little guy! He always looks like he is thrilled to have his picture taken!

  35. Hey Little Todd, my darling boy,

    Love your bark day day post.

    Again, Happy Barkday and what did Kim get for you?


  36. Oh Kim, I love the photo of Todd's tongue sticking out...he looks like he's telling you he's not happy you are saying such things about him! How funny!

  37. ♪♪♫♪♪ HAPPY BIRTHDAY TODD ♪♪♫♪♪ still as cute as ever.

  38. Happy First Birthday Toddie! You will grow into a fine and handsome Scot who will know all the right things to do (maybe just not do them all, though). It will be fun watching you come along, Todd, and get handsomer and smarter each day!


  39. I swore many years ago that I would never get another puppy. I have learned in my older years never say never! Happy Birthday Todd and many more.

  40. Happy HAPPY Birthday Todd!!! He is such a ham - his photos always make m smile! :-)

  41. Happy First Birthday Todd! What a wonderful first year in pictures. :)

  42. I didn't realize that Todd was a Rocky Creek doggie!

    I hope he has a wonderful birthday!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  43. Happy Barkday, Todd! Hope everyone got a taste of the nommy looking birthday cookie. But the lion's share for you, of course :)

    Jed & Abby

  44. Oh Kim this is a wonderful Todd in his birthday hat!! He looks like he's loving every moment.
