His annual checkup elicited great results, and he weighs 66.5 lbs. Still very much a puppy. 93% adorable, 7% Hellbeast.

An early morning trip to the Dog Park was in order, so here’s a photo of Kirby in our backseat, looking out the door.

He still loves car rides. And he still puts a smile on people’s faces when they see him. Kirby is a very good boy.

It’s so much fun seeing him gallop at the Dog Park, and playing with other dogs.

It’s hard to believe it’s been an entire year since this adorable goofball was born. Several chewed-up rugs later, here we are. One look at that face tells us he’ll always be a puppy. An 80 lb., occasionally-crazed Hellbeast, but still an adorable puppy. And we love the little guy.

Kirby knows there’s been lots of sad news since yesterday. But he wants to assure you there are treats and bellyrubs on the horizon.

He’s still a handful, but Kirby has become far less a Hellbeast in the evening hours. The last few weeks with him have been a lot of fun. He’s a sweet (not so little anymore) puppy.

It’s been a rough day here in Brooklyn. Kirby would like to brighten your mood.

Kirby On The Mend

Over the weekend, Kirby was not himself, and developed a swollen back paw that began to bleed. Our veterinarian cleaned the wound and prescribed an antibiotic and anti-inflammatory. Kirby’s mood improved dramatically, especially after being carried up and down the stairs, and getting extra treats and lots of attention. But he hates that cone with a passion.
