Cullen turns One!

 

Cullen's First ChristmasChristmas

 

 

One of THE BEST things that happened to me this year was ?Cullen?

My family surprised me with him for my birthday! I know they are reading this and laughing because they tease me that the day they went to get him I told a friend “Gosh, I hope they are NOT getting me a dog!” LOL

You can see all of my Cullen posts here

Cullen's First year

 

Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.

~Roger Caras

 

He’s my best little bud, he’s always by my side!

He waits for us to get home

He’s always ready to play

and he sits up like a pretty boy when he wants attention

 

He turns ONE on Christmas Eve!

 Happy Birthday Bud-Bud!!

 

Cullen is a full-size Yorkie with floppy ears, he weighs about 11 pounds.

He is my fur-baby.

Cullen is passionate about squirrels

He loves to chase them, and retrieve them when Dad hunts them (Mom thinks this is YUCKY)

He does NOT like car rides, and gets sick every month he goes to the groomer.

He knows how to ring the bells on the door when he wants out, and will bring you any of his toys you ask him for.

He loves to share food with Dad and cuddle time with Mom.

Sticks! how could I forget sticks, he LOVES to find sticks in the yard and run as fast as he can with the wind whipping his ears behind!

I have been blessed to have such a dog to love……….and one who loves me unconditionally!

    Oh, happy birthday sweet Cullen! I love his name of course and what a sweet little face.
    I have 3 little fur babies (a 25 lb pug, a 12 lb Pekingese and a maltese, who is 4 lbs of fury). They are wonderful and I love them beyond all reason and the unconditional love they return is priceless.

    Cullen is so adorable. I laughed when he said that he gets car sick. Do you have mobile dog groomers in your area?
    We wish Cullen a Happy Birthday!

    Your dear Cullen is adorable. I hope that you and he are both healthy and having a good Holiday season. May all of your family be blessed with happiness and good health now and throughout the new year to come. I will come and visit your website when I need a lift in my day. Thank you for sharing your love for your dog and all of the other good things on your blog.

    Ruth Craig
