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!
