A First Birthday

Today is Sydney and Mackenzie's birthday. They're one whole year old. It's been a rocky year at times but we made it.
After raising a house full of Portuguese Water Dogs who want to be with me at all times, doing whatever I'm doing, it was hard to adjust to a couple of hound puppies who wanted to be on their own, outside, exploring all day.

The girls have very different personalities. Syd is very serious and can be snappy.
Mac is happy-go-lucky and gets along with everyone.

They used to be best friends, but lately there has been friction.
We're trying to work thru the problems.
 Let's hope the next year goes more smoothly.

 Happy birthday girls.

Happy Birthday Puppies!

I never knew that hounds were so independent. Thanks to you,I will never adopt a hound breed, thereby saving me some grief. I don't think they would be my kind of dog.

Fingers crossed for you that things will work out fine for you and Sydney.

Happy happy birthday! First birthdays are extra special. Paws crossed that things will work out and the girls will be best friends again. Those hound dog eyes melt my momma's heart!

Happy birthday, girls! Sissy sometimes lets her hound genes get the best of her; as I type, she has retired without us, something my loyal, faithful JRT(s) would NEVER do!
