How time (and fur) flies! Kirby has calmed down considerably, and is 93% adorable and 7% blond werewolf. But he now climbs onto the sofa for cuddles while we watch TV, so there’s that.
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’s a happy, mischievous puppy these days. We’re thrilled. Exhausted, but thrilled.
Treats and belly rubs are clearly on the schedule for this Very Good Boy today.
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.
Paw is healed, Cone Of Shame is removed. And check out those gorgeous blonde eyelashes!
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.

We sure got ourselves one adorable puppy. Kirby is a lovable ball of fur. And the HellBeast only emerges for an hour or so each day, usually mid-evening.
His health is great, his potty training is back on track, all his vaccinations will be complete in another week, and we love the little guy. How could you not?
