Happy 1st Birthday, Mills!

Today is Mills' first birthday!!!

Let's take a lil recap of his first year! 

At 8 weeks, still at Westben.

He joined our family on November 16, 2012 when he was 12 weeks old.  Kevin reserved Mills long before but waited to get him until my 30th birthday!  This is about 3 minutes after he walked around the corner in our home!

He was sooooooo cute and it was love at first sight with our boy!

His love of tennis balls got started very early.

He took at trip uptown on my birthday!  This was our first family picture.

And he had a sip of Miller Lite, his namesake!

Uptown pooch!  On the second day we had him.

He got to meet his Nannie and Poppa a week later for Thanksgiving.  Oh boy!

This is what happened when I had to go on my first work trip after we got him.  How could I leave?!!

He supervises all of the shenanigans that go on in our backyard.

We took him on a ride almost every day as suggested by the breeder.  That boy loves to go on car rides to this day.

Everyone loved him at Corner Pub while we were up there for a Panthers Game.

Mills in the air with my bossman's dog....they share the same dad, randomly!

Retrieved some newspapers in his day.

More recent pictures...

Guard dog.

I loveeeeee the sunroof open.

The word WALK is very popular in our house and if that word is said, you better be ready to take him for one.

We love you Mills and we're SO glad you're our pups!  Let's celebrate with new toys, a FURminator and a puppy cake!
