Diesel had his second birthday at the end of June. Yes, I did make him wear a birthday crown, but only to snap a quick photo. This quirky dog has given me plenty of challenges over the 24 months but also lots of joy. He is such a goof! His birthday, and his behavior of late, reminds me that what I often tell clients is TRUE. While each individual dog will mature at a different rate, they will ALL surprise you at some point (in a good way) and eventually, most dogs will develop into eager and self-assured adults. Take time to enjoy the journey with your dog!
