dugan's 8th birthday party and skinny dip video!

my sweetest baby turned 8 today! it seemes like yesterday when we picked him up from his colorado breeder and took him home. he has been such a joy in my life and he taught me the beauty of a dog's unconditional love. i don't mean to get sappy, but i love him so much.

the day started with birthday treats and ended at tyler state park for a long swim!

he was too tired on the car ride home to stick his head out the window... Zzzzz!

i love this video... he's so happy to be swimming! happy 8th birthday, dugan! <3
