Belated Birthday Wishes to the Mysterhead.

April 25th is Duke's birthday. We missed blogging it because we were driving out to Rochester, New York to visit my brother and such. So here is his birthday wishes, my baby is a year old already! We've even started mixing adult dog food with his puppy food.

Happy Birthday Buddy!

Unflattering... Medical question though

I apologize for the ever-so-flattering photos of Duke...

Duke played outside all day today. I just gave him a bath and noticed these red marks. There are between 5 and 6 of them and they are about the size of a nickel, maybe a quarter. All of them are around his genital area. The two prominent ones are real easy to see in the photo. It looks like a pin prick in the middle, a ring of skin color, then a big ring of red.

Anyone know what this is?
EDIT NOTE: Saturday we checked the spots and they were less red and smaller. Sunday we checked the spots and all that was left was the red spot that was in the middle. We figured after playing in the backyard at FiancĂ©'s parent's house, because it is Spring a small swamp has kind of developed. So, that being said, I believe it was a minor reaction to black fly bites.
It would make sense figuring the black flies would only be able to bite him in the fleshy parts were there is no fur (near his genitals). He was playing in a swamp. When we get bit by them our skin turns red too and there is a part in the middle where the black flies have to bite on!

Enjoying the Day

Dukester enjoys the warm sunshine.

His thing is climbing on the back of the couch to sit and bark out the window. He was so exhausted from playing with Triton and Dinoco yesterday that he fell asleep. I sort of woke him up when I grabbed my cell phone to snap a picture.

Yay Spring!

Catching up

We were going to take the Dukester to the dog park this weekend for another puggle meetup, but it RAINED all day! Quite lame, poor puppy.

In other news, it's almost Duke's birthday (end of April, before the 28th), not his gotcha day (June 16), but his actual birthday. I can't believe he is almost a year old. It's funny how much a creature can really change your life.

Ugh, work as well as wedding plans have been keeping me busy and the poor Dukester is feeling it. It will get better.

Here are some tidbits from last month that never made it onto the blog before.

Duke and Triton have a collision over the ball.

Meet Duke's meaty tongue. It's HUGE.

March Puggle Meet-Up

Working can really take a toll on blogging! Here are some photos I took of the puggles from the Philadelphia March Puggle Meet-up.

What's better than one puggle? MANY PUGGLES!!!!

Where did March go?

Duke has no idea where March went.
