It’s a big day when it’s your birthday and on February 16th, Archie turned one year old. (Happy birthday, buddy!)

Beyond all the hoopla of finally reaching the year one milestone, what really concerns me is the amount of stuff the dog — the dog — received for his birthday. And not from his owners!

Here’s the breakdown:

  • Brown corduroy jacket with wool lining (and pockets)
  • Red and gold silk Chinese jacket with wool lining
  • Black, goose down winter jacket — reversible
  • Orange fleece pullover with reflector strap on neck
  • Birthday cake squeak toy (his favorite)
  • Hand colored paper for chewing

And if that wasn’t enough, we, his owners, had to actually get him some things as well:

  • Tennis ball — red and blue with white stars
  • Whizzle stick — foot long version
  • Whizzle stick — two foot long version
  • Liver treats

The dog is spoiled.

(And it’s a testament to his effect on people.)
