They were taken back in August on a dreary Friday afternoon. Hobson and I took Zooey up to Kent Falls State Park, and I brought my camera along. Despite the weather, it turned out to be a great day for a hike, and those gorgeous falls worked it for the camera pretty darn well, too.

I thought today was a good day to post these, seeing how it's Zooey first birthday! Yup, today, October 16th, my baby girl turns one. The vet told me something the other day at Zooey's last appointment about how she'll always have that adorable puppy face. That made me smile because, gosh, she's just the cutest.

To our dear Zooey. As crazy and energetic and demanding as you are, as annoying as you can be, no matter how many socks and sweatshirts you chew, no matter how early you jump on our bed in the morning, you are still the sweetest. Whether you're pouncing at your toys like a cat, army crawling from the foot of our bed to our pillows in the morning, doing flips in the air because you just cannot contain your excitement, running full speed just to get other pups to chase you at the dog park, sleeping arms outstretched in the air, legs wide open and usually in my arms, you manage to make us laugh every darn day. You've brought an indescribable joy to our lives. Thank you for making us a family.

Happy birthday (or Yappy Barkday, as your giant cookie says)!
