My little puppy turns one today. It's hard to imagine that he's no longer a "puppy"--we went and bought Adult Dog Food and, while I'm happy with the new assortment of flavors, it was still a little sad.
He still maintains his puppy-ness, though, in energy and attitude. This morning, for example, he had no problem bounding through the snow drifts that are twice his height. His motto appears to be "keep moving, push through, don't slow down for anything". Probably a decent motto.
