Kaiser's First Birthday

Today is Kaiser's birthday in case you didn't catch that from the headline. Justin's birthday was last Wednesday (twenty nine!) and I told him he could guest post, but that didn't end up working out. He'll get around to it one of these days. However, since Kaiser can't guest post in honor if his birthday, I'll have to do it for him.

This is Kaiser one year ago (the smaller one in the back) at approximately 3lbs:

Here is what Kaiser looks like 365 days later at 118lbs:
Taken with Justin's iPhone... so not the best quality
And just for fun...

Kaiser is the master at destroying his bed. It's almost like he doesn't want to lay on something soft. In the past year we've gone through more towels, blankets, quilts, papasan cushions, and pillows than I'd care to count. Recently he's been sleeping with a mattress cover and a bath mat. The bath mat - since it is coated on the underside with plastic - has stood up fairly well but sheds hair all over. The blanket in his cage has been there for about two weeks.

Justin took the following picture yesterday:

What? What is that?

It's Kaiser! And he's torn a hole through his blanket AND managed to get it wrapped over his head. Justin took some video so we can better remember one more in a long line of Kaiser's blanket-victims.

Notice that a.) he still has some of the evidence caught in his big floppy dog lips and b.) he is unable to stand.

That's all I got for you. If you're interested there are more stupid videos that Justin has posted of us and Kaiser that you can check out here. Happy Monday!


  1. omg, those blanket pics of him are HILARIOUS!

  2. ... and here I thought our Dane was the one with the blanket quirks.:)

    (She won't lay down/sleep unless her head is FULLY covered with a sheet or blanket.)

  3. Jessica - Lol he seemed a little embarrassed. we heard noises that morning and wondered what it was all about.
    GoofyGirl - I'm glad to hear he's not the only one that's weird with blankets. He loves to lay on comfortable stuff but he always shreds it!

  4. Oh he is adorable!! The guy across the street from me has a GD. When our lab ( who is fairly big) saw it up close.. she just laid down and played dead! It was hilarious!!


Talk to the Cake Betch - I'll always respond. Unless you're a dick, then I'll just be mad.
