Birthday boy!

“Life is too short to be small.”

–Benjamin Disraeli

First day home…

The balloons are inflated, the candle is set aside, and the Frosty Paws are chillin’ in the freezer, for today is a special day here at Chez Feinberg.  It’s the Beaumeister’s 1st birthday!!  It hardly seems possible that the round, brown bundle of puppy love we brought home last October could already be marking a year on the calendar.

Little man’s first car ride

When he first came home, he was ALL belly and paws and so, so squeezable.  🙂  His little ‘Buddha belly’ was round and warm and smelled like all the things that are most precious about babies. His coat was soft as goose down and his little teeth were like hypodermic needles.  ;-/

He ate, slept, played and peed and we adored him.  Some 8 months later, not much has changed (aside from his size and the length of time between potty breaks).


Big boy chillin’….

Happy Birthday, Beau!! We love you!!

    • Yep, my crew starts salivating when they see them coming out of the freezer–it’s a riot. Thx for the birthday wishes for the Beauman, Jenni–will definitely pass them along. 🙂

    Well there’s never any doubt how loved your babies are! They know just how to fill our hearts, make us laugh and show us what true devotion is! Beau is a very lucky boy! Happy Birthday to that big bag of chocolate!

  7. OMG…Beau is just sooooo adorable. Wanna tickle his buddha belly 🙂 Muaaahhhhhh on your birthday!!

    • Thank you! We think so, but we’re also a little biased. That belly just *begs* to be tickled, though, doesn’t it?! It’s *still* cute and soft, but not nearly as round (thank goodness). 😉

    I am just going nuts over his belly in the picture with David! OMG!! Love this guy..HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAU…hugs and licks and enjoy your Frosty Paws! xox

    • Isn’t that the *funniest* thing?! Looks like he ate one of his siblings before we left the breeder! :-/ He’s a happy, healthy, ACTIVE boy and much loved. I will pass along your birthday wishes. xoxo
