This was a lowkey adopt-a-versary this year, just the two of us, he got an extra long walk and a cookie from my parents and a present that I ordered last minute because I almost forgot. But the People of DCIB requested an Albie photo post in honor of his Special Day, so here you are!
Albie Dog! In the shelter. With kennel cough. And NO BRAIN. They told me “oh yes, he is very low energy, calm, mature” and I looked at this waggy little dummy and thought “you are a stupid active puppy but I will pretend I don’t know that because the nice shelter people think I am stupid and they can trick me.” Oh, and I have VIDEO!
So they suckered me in and convinced me to take this sweet little demon dog home before he gave everyone else kennel couch. And the first night he seemed…sad? Tired? Confused? Just really really sick?
But look! Just a year later! So much more cheerful for his first adopt-a-versary!!!! I made him a cake and gave it to him and he ate it in about two seconds.
Last year, even more excitement! I bought him TWO cupcakes. And he ate them very quickly. And then he threw up. Don’t worry, I did not take the photo of the throw up.
This year, as I said, lowkey. I bought him a snuffle mat!!!! And then I broke up the cookie my parents gave me for him and hit it in his snuffle mat. And then he went snuffle snuffle snuffle. And I have VIDEO! Two videos!
