it's been two whole years
It's been two whole years since we brought this puppy into our lives. I remember vividly how I fell in love with his picture on petfinder and basically told Jared that we were going to bring him home from the adoption event. I remember how I began to get nervous as I signed the papers and then proceeded to panic once we got in the car.
Freddie...I remember how skittish you were around people for months and I remember wondering if you'd ever chill out (I still wonder that, though you have calmed down a lot). I love watching you run free and swim in the river when we take you to the dog park, I swear I can see you smiling. I love when I'm sitting on the couch and you climb up next to me and snuggle your big head in my lap and fall asleep so peacefully. I love watching Jared wrestle and play with you.
You are the perfect mixture of playful and energetic, and sweet and snuggly. And even when you eat an entire batch of my muffins off the counter top, I can't resist your face. The cuteness makes my heart explode. I can't wait to make more and more memories with our favorite puppy for many more years.
