Happy Birthday, Violet!

Violet is one!

It was an uneventful birthday. Eric had a car accident last week that left our car undriveable, and we've been dealing with all of the mess that comes with that for several days now. We had a little get-together planned for today with some dog-people friends and their dogs, some pizza for the people and cupcakes from Three Dog Bakery for the dogs, but with the car situation and the unexpected icky weather, it got postponed until next week, weather allowing. Her birthday presents will wait til then.

Today, let's look back on one year of my sweet, goofy, brilliant, ditzy Collie girl.

  1. Happy Birthday to Violet! Hope she got a chance to have an awesome day with lots of treats and walks and play.

  2. Happy Birthday Violet!!! Sorry to hear about the accident :( I'm sure Violet will enjoy her goodies and gifts when you get to have the party next week!

  3. Awwwe! Happy Birthday Violet! You've come a long way baby! :) Remember cars are replaceable, people aren't. Hope Eric was okay!

  5. Happy, happy birthday, Violet! Love the photos of course, especially the one of you with Violet at the end :D I, too, hope Eric escaped any injury. Isn't it amazing that Violet started out so cute and yet grew even cuter (or actually more beautiful) at each stage? :D

  6. I have no idea how I missed this, but Happy Belated Birthday, Violet! You're growing into such a gorgeous Collie!
    Love the pictures and I hope Eric was alright!

  7. Happy belated Barkday Violet. It sure looks like you enjoyed yourself.
