The Birthday Boy

Our handsome puppy, R, just had a birthday!
It blows our minds that our little puppy is now the "King" of the pack.
He's gone from being the youngest of three to being the eldest in our current Duo. However, much to our delight, he certainly is not the most mature dog in the house!
Despite his glorious lack of maturity at some times, he's an incredible big brother to Shyla. He has helped teach her that the world is not as scary as she first thought.
And he lets her "lean on him" whenever needed.
R and Shyla are perhaps the most bonded of the many pairs of Labs we've had in our family. It makes my heart happy to watch them interact so lovingly.
Happy Birthday, R! Both the Runner and I think the next photo (taken a few weeks ago) truly shows R's spirit. When he's out running in the forest, he is the embodiment of joy.
Here's to many more years of that puppy-like glint in your eyes, sweet R!
