From cute to ugly to awesome.

The bulldog turned 3 today!
 He was the cutest thing on earth...
 With razor sharp, needlepoint teeth...
 And he destroyed...
But had the cutest little butt on earth (his middle name is hot pants!)...
 And he visited our sweet coworkers...
 And us at work...
 And hid in random places...
 And was terrified of skateboards...
 And ate mud...
 And licked mud...
 And loved The Office...
 And slept so soundly...

 And learned to go down stairs...FINALLY...
 And kept destroying...
 And had delicate paws...
And had an awkward phase...

 And then a very sudden old man phase that has stuck...
 Old men...
But he still has his playful moments...
 Seriously...it's true...that whole dog and owner saying...
And he used to be easy to hold...
 And got waaay heavier...
And then Ham dealt with a new friend...

He got famous for awhile...
 Despite his total grossness...
And occasional crazy...
 He's one of the best road trip copilots...
 And loves to garden with me...
 And watch me sew all afternoon...
 And he's generally and all around great furry friend...

Happy Birthday, Hamilton!

I think my top 2 favorite Hammy moments was when he was scared of the pumpkins at our pumpkin carving contest night. I still have the video of that!
And when he was Jeremy Manstrom at your halloween party last year. :)
