2008 Year in Review

(Sorry, I am a little LATE with this post because SOME PEOPLE ABANDONED me and then were busy doing things like going skiing and entertaining friends and celebrating New Year's and recovering from New Year's and... more skiing and...)

2008 has been a great year. We had a rough beginning, but it's finished up pretty well. 

I tried being a service dog when Momma had a splurgery and I had to take care of her.

I learned how to guard, making me very popular with the neighbors.

Then I fired my dog walker and had to get tutored.

Then I made myself doggona-non-grata at my first doggie day care.

I turned 1 only a day after Momma had her second splurgery. Everything is always about her, she had to go steal all my birdday thunder. But I did get some balloons out of it.

I helped Momma with her physical terrorpy.

I finally showed everyone I am perfectly capable of swimming long distances into deep water; I just choose not to. (Compare my water polo skills as a 12-week baby, here.)

I continued my rise to the top at doggie day care.

I won 3 medals in the 2008 Pawlimpics: 2 golds in Track
and Bitey Face and a bronze in (snow)Ball!

Don't worry about that Bitey Face picture. This is what Zola is usually doing to me: 

I found a new doggie day care and a great camp in the country.

I fooled everyone into thinking I am a Canine Good Citizen.

We opened a new dog run in Brrr Mont.

I became a calendar model, debuting as Mr. January AND Mr. December in my first outing to benefit Kuvasz Rescue. Sorry, the calendars sold out well before Christmas. 

I got more great Christmas pressies and a delayed Christmas surprise (after my humans came back from ABANDONING me) ... that I will tell you about soon!

What a great year you had little brother. If all my humans quit using the computer so much then maybe I will be able to tell you about my year sometime.
