I would like to introduce you all to our furry baby! This is Axle, he is almost 6 years old but he still acts like a puppy. He reminds me very much of Marley from Marley and Me by John Grogan and if you have read this book or seen the movie than you know what a handful he can be! He listens much better to my husband but if he thinks he is going for a ride than he will do whatever he is told. As crazy as he is, he is also a very loving dog, so much so that he has earned the nickname, Sir-Licks-A-Lot.
The day we brought him home, I ended up rocking him to sleep in my arms because he wouldn't stop crying, he missed his mom and his brothers and sisters. It broke my heart but when he fell asleep, I was instantly in love! After that, he had no problems falling asleep, in fact, that puppy would fall asleep in the most strange positions.
He may get on every one of my last nerves, but he is a great dog and seeing him play so gently (most of the time) with our kids puts a huge smile on my face. He loves them just as much as they love him! I can't believe that next week he will be 6, he was our first baby and my first dog and he will always have a special place in my heart!
On a side note, my photography has improved so much in 6 years...I love seeing progress!
