Mabel is ONE!

Our puppy turned ONE on May 20th! Here are some highlights from her first year.

Mabel has such a fun, playful personality. She's a little shadow. If someone gets up from a room she is in, she gets up too and follows them to wherever they're going. She loves to get her belly rubbed and if you pet her, she lets you know by rolling on to her back. Every once in a while, crazy Mabel comes out. This is when she starts running at full speed, bangs in to the wall or door and then immediately heads in the opposite direction only to bang off of that. That can last for a minute or two and always makes us laugh. She's great for getting the kids out of bed when they're moving slowly in the morning by jumping in to bed with them and licking their faces. Her best command is "stay". Sometimes we have to repeat ourselves with the others, but she usually gets "stay" on the first try. She has the biggest grin and we all love to see her smile. Mabel has brought a lot of laughter and craziness to our lives and we love having her in our family.

I made her a special doggy cake for her birthday that made from an egg, peanut butter, flour, and carrots. Only the batter looked more like cookie dough, so I just formed it in to balls and topped them with melted peanut butter. She loves peanut butter.

She waited so patiently while we sang "Happy Birthday" to her.

Time to dig in! She licked the plate clean. :)
