Happy Birthday, Kinn!

One year ago today you were born. We didn't know you yet, but we knew we wanted a Westie and that it would be you or one of your siblings.

This is your baby picture. You were just a few weeks old but what a cutie!


And then we received this photo - who couldn't love this ball of fuzz?


We heard that you were the first one of your siblings to figure out how to "escape". We now know how clever and determined you are!


We went to pick you up on a hot day in July. It was a very long car ride and you found a comfortable lap to cuddle up on and take a nap.



Look at how small you were that first day!





Still tiny, but boy those ears are growing!









This must be comparable to the "awkward years" when parts are growing so fast and others haven't caught up. Those ears took over your whole face!


But then you continued to grow and got all fuzzy. And grew into our hearts, too. We had no idea that a dog could be such an important member of the family.




What a fuzzy boy you were becoming!



And there were haircuts that left you looking a little bare...




And since you were born in the spring, you had never seen snow. This was your first venture out into the cold, white stuff - you thought it was terrific!



We dressed you up for the annual Christmas card. You were very accomodating...



You became very comfortable in your surroundings and made our home - your home.



You are curious and on alert. Always ready to meet a new friend.


We adore you puppy! You bring us such joy and happiness. May we have many years together. Happy Birthday, Kinn!

(Is it okay if I still call you 'puppy'?)
