Butterball turned six months old today (well yesterday since I’m blogging early in the morning). I can’t believe how big he is and how time has flown.
Butterball had a great Fourth of July. He got lots of lovin and a lot of goodies; he got to try homemade strawberry ice cream for the first time. One thing butterball loves is frozen fruit. No tummy issues today thank goodness. One thing I’m proud of is that butterball doesn’t mind fireworks; in fact he didn’t even notice them. He is sure oblivious sometimes.
I’m sad to say I didn’t get to throw butterball a little birthday party for turning six months, I really wanted to. I wanted to make a big deal about turning six months because Daniel won’t be there when butters turns a year old. Instead of throwing him a mini birthday party we went over Daniel’s aunt’s house for a potluck. I decided to bring butterball. He spent most of the time outside with us because some of the dogs didn’t like him. Again today he got to chow down on some goodies that Daniel’s family fed to him. He’s sure spoiled and everyone loves him. Butterball got to meet a smaller dog than him it was a Chihuahua and only a couple months old. Butterball is such a good boy we went on a walk down to the park without the leash and he listened very well. Butterball is also a very good playmate with dogs. He chased the little doggie around and got chased and he was very gentle with the little dog….we did have some barking problems that were resolved with a loud “no”.
After our little walk Daniel and some of his cousins went swimming, butterball hates this. Every time Daniel or I would swim away from where he was standing he would bark like mad which ended up in a barking fest inside the house. Daniel and I decided to let butterball swim with us to see if that would calm him down, he was fine but once we put him back out he would start barking again. To our surprise he jumped onto a floating bed just so he could be with us but without having to swim, he’s such a silly boy. We came home and butterball took a long nap. Before Daniel left to go home butterball ran out of the house, both of us thinking we would have to scream and chase him we got a little mad but then we realized he was running to the car. Butterball loves car rides and he spends them sticking half his body out the window unless the car is going too fast.
I love our little guy and I can’t imagine my life without him and all the trouble he causes :)
I hope you all had a great Fourth of July, and I hope you have a great week!!
