Anyway, back to me! Here is a brief look at how much I have grown and matured over the past five years.
Shinzou (originally Jonathan), and the dark red pup is my sister Cornelia Marie. We were the "Deadliest Catch" crew, and all named after the show. My "registered" name is D'Azul's Northwestern, and I was originally called Skipper, after Captain Sig Hanson.
Look at me! I was just a weeee teeny thing! I was only 2 months old in this pic.
Me at 1. Already enjoying the cool air vent!
Oh look! It's me at age 2, still on my favorite cool air vent! Hmmmm, I'm starting to see a pattern here.
With my chewy at age 3.
Age 4. Hmmmm, something about the location of this photo looks a little familiar.
Finally, me now, age 5!
I may be all grown up, but I couldn't have become the girl, I mean WOMAN that I am today, if it weren't for the wonderful mothering of my beautiful Holly! She raised me to be the absolute best puppy. Hu-mom still comments on the things I do that remind her of Holly. All I can say is, I'm sure glad I take after her. She was the ultimate role model for a Princess like ME!
And so, for my birthday, as my (and Holly's) good friend Summi would say....WHIP AND SPRINKLES FOR ALL! Or, as my favorite Unkey Tubey (yes, he is my real uncle) says....CHEESE AND BACON FOR ALL! I'll let you all decide which you would rather have.
