Today is my FIRST Birthday!

Just a little guy, today I am tipping the scales at 45.5 !

But here I am a year ago, the smallest and the first born in the Border Collie Garden of Ivy and Peat.
Today of course we went to the beach and to my first boutique doggie store: the
shop-keeper said I was very well behaved.

I also met many new people which I love to do!

Happy Birthday to all my litter mates: Dahlia, Dru, Moss, Leelah Bean, Keifer, Caber and Denali.
Let me out!

 OOPS! That's actually little sis Dahlia biting Blossom's nose! Nice girls (not).

That's me right in the center with the eye-patch and head dot just chillin'...

More Ava and Oreo and a little of me

Ava even comes over to our house to play with Oreo! That is a real photo of Ava, just 5, doing agility with Oreo on the teeter-totter. WHAT NEXT? Her Dad Sandy took the photos.
Once in a while she lets me join in, but I've been doing a full length tunnel all by myself since I came home at age 9 weeks!

My Big Sis Oreo turned 13 on February 14! CLICK on the PHOTOS to make them BIGGER!!

Baby me and BIG Sis: Love at first sight!!
 I think it's about time you meet OREO!  It was love at first sight for us. The second picture is us doing the same thing at the beach: what a team. Then it's Oreo doing what she likes best: retrieving tennis balls from the ocean all year round.
 Then there is her FAN CLUB! 
Everyone loves Oreo since she is beautiful, very calm and well-mannered inside the house, but is a wild gal when she does agility and will play with anyone. Her fan clubs are generally packs of little girls. When Oreo arrives at the beach in summertime
little girls come running from all over, screaming "OREO!" They all want to control the Chuck-it and command her about; she always complies. Riley is the head of one girl "gang". They don't like me much so Mum takes me away for Mommie & Me time like climbing, swimming, tugging. Then there is the always fabulous Ava from NY, NY. WOW! Is she bossy; see the next photo. We do whatever she commands and boy does she command. Oreo always gives the ball up right away for Ava (better than for our Mum). She really doesn't want to play with me, but she can "put me in my place" and wasn't afraid the first time I met her when I was ping-ponging above her head. Although her parents have loftier plans for little Ava (she's 5), she wants to be a dogwalker in New York City. Ava has her own dog now, a rescue (just like me and Oreo) French Bulldog named Stella, but Ava still wants to play with Oreo. There is much more to tell about Oreo soon.

Baby Hawk

Me in my kitchen x-pen

Following big sis' Oreo around our yard
My favorite item in back: a TUNNEL!!

I'm a natural retriever
Watch out you Labs & PWDs!

Baby on the beach cliff
Did I mention I'm BRAVE?!

Puppy bowl and feet
My Mum still fantasizes about when I REALLY was a baby. I came home from Sugar Bush Farm in a kitty carrier!! Unfortunately we didn't get any photos. Aunt Amy just stuffed me right in and I kept smiling all the way home. I am very good natured... There were only two of the original 8 puppies left and Amy thought I'd be best for a Bed & Breakfast; boy was she right on! Since I couldn't do stairs Mum used to carry me under her arm up and down and all around. She misses those days since it was the best way to keep me under control!

Still me, all about ME!

Okay, second post today. We will definitely share more photos, but right now I have to go to bed. Did I tell you I live "at" the beach and have been streaking down the sand and climbing on the huge rock outcroppings in the sea since I was three months old. I am VERY athletic. One more thing about me:  like some people I believe a camera can steal your soul, consequently I always LEAP out of the  focus when MUM is behind the lens.
At long last the first born puppy of the Garden of Ivy and Peat gets a blog!
YIKES! It's taken my Mum forever to get it up and running and I know she'll need to edit and re-edit, but in the end it'll be just like me: SPECIAL!
As you can see I've been a leaping guy since I was barely 8 weeks old. The photo is by my Aunt Amy, my sister Dahlia's Mom. There is so much to tell since I am now almost 11 months old.
