More life with a dog

Frodo is one year old today. He’s been a delight and a charmer since we first met him, and though he has certainly caused us some frustration (and no small amount of missed or interrupted sleep), he’s nevertheless been a wonderful addition to the household. He keeps hitting remarkable plateaus of development, causing us to realize just how sweet and wonderful he is all over again.

I don’t think I’m likely to want another puppy anytime soon – if I adopt another dog, I’ll get a young adult – but I am very pleased to have and continue to have the opportunity to watch Frodo grow up.
