We can hardly believe
that two years ago,
Dad took Mom and Lilly
to Ohio
during a snow storm
to get our little Piper.

There were 3 boys in his litter
and Mom had the 3rd choice.
But she's been very happy
with our sweet boy.

At first he was a bit of a rascal.

But by the end of the first year
that he lived at our house,
he became a father
to Lilly's three sweet puppies.

He is always quite the entertainer
and loves it when
we have guest.

And when Mom makes something good,
he is always the first to stand up
and ask nicely for a treat.
If Mom ignores him,
he gently nudges her leg
with his foot.

He has grown from a cute puppy
to a self assured, beautiful dog.

And now he is the father
of these nine sweet puppies.

It was a happy day
when Piper came to live at
Rocky Creek Farm.

And we all love him.

Time goes SO fast, doesn't it?? Piper must seem like he was just a wee pup himself, and now he is a daddy of his own bunch! How lovely!
We actually were reminiscing in our post today, and looked back to find that you guys were amongst our very first friends! Thanks for being such good pals!

Every day must be a happy day at the Farm, especially with the pups now. As for Piper, Happy Gotcha Day and in my opinion, you're still a rascal and that's a good thing. ;)
