Two Years of Huck

Yesterday was Huck's 2nd birthday!  I remember the day David and I travelled to Moss Point, Mississippi, to pick him up.  He is a country boy through and through.  When we got there, all of his brothers and sisters had moved to their new homes except two - Tess and Rolo.  Tess was the feisty little runt of the litter with pale yellow hair, and Rolo was a hefty bully with dark brown hair.  Huck was the obvious choice :)  He was so sweet and laid in my lap all the way back to Jackson.  I was smitten from Day One.  Here are a few pictures from that day:

Huck has been a wonderful dog with a kind and gentle personality, and I love coming home after a long day of work to our rambunctious and cheerful lab.  However, I must admit he's had some "Marley moments."  His tail is like a weapon turning things over as he barges through the house like a bull in a china shop.  While we are working, he spends his time in the backyard and the garage.  We've learned to leave nothing of value within his reach.  Here are a few things Huck's destroyed - my law school yearbooks, a shelf, a cooler, golf club head covers, David's hunting boots, a few board games (Scrabble and Cranium), David's sunglasses, lights on a trailer....the list goes on and on.  We're hoping now that he's 2 - that's 14 in dog years, he'll become more mature and respectful of personal property.  In the meantime, we'll love him anyway.

For his birthday, we got Huck one of his favorite things, a big new bone!  Happy birthday, Huck!
