Mister man at first meeting with Dylan
Nope not mister man’s birthday it’s Dylan’s and he’s five years young! This picture is from our first meeting with Dylan at six weeks of age. We had decided that since I was going to be the main caregiver we would let the puppy do the choosing rather than us. Dylan was all over me in a nanosecond and it’s been love ever since.
We call this picture "the magic of Dylan"

awkward stage at 4 months
Never in our wildest imaginations did we think Dylan would grow so fast and go through an awkward stage like children do. This is pretty much close to the last time we were able to pick him up and carry him about.
Dylan proved to be a fast learner but was also full of high jinx. Believe it or not but he never once chewed shoes, he never chewed anything in our home except his toys. Here he was simply being silly and had swiped his Dad’s shoe while mister man was putting on the other.
Dylan’s first time out swimming his first summer and while he did well he isn’t much of a swimmer he prefers to wade out into the deep water and then proceed to drink it.
Like children you always have to watch what goes into a puppy’s mouth. Mister man was out in the yard walking Dylan when a large bumblebee came along and Dylan sucked it up! Dylan didn’t really suffer any ill effects except his face and head swelled up making him look like a puppy prizefighter.
Dylan has always been heavily into sports, loves to go snow shoeing with his Dad.
And loves to hike with his Mom.
Dylan's turned out to be a great addition to our family. One of the best things I love about Goldens is no matter what they’re doing life is always a party.
Happy Birthday Dylan dog!
