Seriously though, she can be very trying, especially as an energetic puppy, but i love her to death and couldn't imagine having any other dog! Happy Birthday, you monster! :)
And - for any other Chicago pet owners, i encourage you check out Krisers, and put your pet in the system. They have an awesome selection of food and toys, but most importantly, this weekend i get a discount on anything i buy her because its her birthday. They also have saturday "birthday parties" so she can play with other dogs that have birthdays around this time for the afternoon. I approve.
