Happy birthday, baby man. From the first day we brought you home, we adored you. You sure gave us quite the scare that first week, but you're a strong little boy and you survived to grow into our favorite companion and very best friend. And, luckily, this blog has been here to chronicle it all. From falling in love with your first puppachino from Starbucks, to stealing the spotlight in your first photo shoot, to being named The Daily Puppy, to your first hotel stay, to putting up with your mother dressing you as a bumblebee and Santa Claus.
And somehow you found the time to grow a mustache, a beard and the world's longest eyelashes.
We love you, Sammy. What a wonderful year it has been with you in it.
