Happy Six Month Birthday Mr. Ender Bender!
First laid eyes on you, so big already and only 2 weeks old…
And then when it came time to pick you at 7 weeks… you won me with your eagerness to please, your independence from your brothers and sister, and your exuberant personality.
We introduced you to your first toy… appropriately an iPaw, when we came to visit you at the two month mark… your first collar fit for one day
At 10 weeks, you met your big brother Apollo and spent two weeks learning from him, using him as your chew toy, and grew by the day!
Started your modeling career at 11 weeks with your first (and mom’s favorite) Sally Harrell tag…
At 12 weeks we uprooted you from my mom’s, brought you home and you melded in like a pro. We still had classes and were working but you just fit right into our schedule, took to the crate, never barked, never nipped… you came to us more perfect than we could have asked for. (WAY BIGGER than we expected!)
At 14 weeks you won the JL forum over with your “wanna come over” head tilts…
At 15 weeks we discovered you were QUITE the social animal loving every dog you met and playing with them all, big and small. Lucy and you became best buds.
At 4 months you discovered swimming and haven’t been able to get enough of it since…
You became a counter surfer, in other words, a TRUE LAB at 17 weeks…
We all graduated together, Eric and I from college and you from puppy kindergarten
By 5 months you were so big but you still had the puppy goofiness
By 6 months you were A STAR and boy did you know it!!!
And now, as we move forward into your teenager months, oh how we are looking forward to that, you give us a reason to smile, laugh, sigh with delight, and burst open with pride on a daily basis. You fit right into our lives so perfectly or did you wrap our lives around yours? Whichever… we love you so much Ender and can’t wait to see what you have in store for us ;D
That was so sweet. Happy 1/2 a year, Ender.

Throw the ball, damn it!
Happy 1/2 Birthday Ender!!!!!!!!!!
CoCo says... Happy birfday big boy! Tink our moms will give us a drink of beer to celebrate? My dad lets me lick his beer bottle when he's done. I like beer.
