Happy Birthday, Tate

{Tate Perching on the Sofa}

Today is my sweet pup, Tate’s third birthday! It’s hard to believe that three years have passed since we adopted him. Time really flies! Tate has taught me so much. He has shown me the meaning of unconditional love, patience, and loyalty. Tate has brought so much joy to our entire family. I feel so blessed to have this little guy. I grew up being completely afraid of dogs and was aloof and indifferent about most animals before he came into our lives. How things have changed! Tate changed my life in a way– I love dogs and all animals so much now and can’t bear to think of what life would be like without my “puppy son”. My life has become so much richer now that I have experienced a dog’s love. It’s unlike anything else. He is our unwavering, fiercely loyal, and incredibly sweet companion. Happy Birthday, Tate! You are the best dog anyone could hope for.

  1. Aww..this is so sweet! Now that we finally own our condo, my husband and I are going to adopt a dog in the next few months. I hope we get one as cute and nice as Tate.

  2. Happy Birthday Tate! I have two ladies (my dogs) myself and I adore them. I grew up always having a dog in the house and it is always such a funny thing to me when you meet people who don’t understand a dog (or pets love). so glad Tate has showed you how amazing this can be!

  3. I love your blog!! Wondering if your dog is a Labradoodle? Looking for a dog for my kids and I, like you, have never been fond of dogs but my kids want a dog so I am reconsidering. Please let me know what your Tate is and happy birthday to your cutie!

  4. Thank you all so much!

    Anon, Tate is a Cockapoo– half Cocker Spaniel, half Poodle. He doesn’t really shed and he is super smart and sweet. He is a medium-sized dog and weighs about 30 lbs. He’s the best dog!
