Today is Dempsey's birthday! He's exactly (as of 2:35 this morning) 1 year old!
Contrary to what you might think, we do not celebrate Dempsey's birthday every month. However, we do take a ton of pictures and videos, so for practically every month, we have a picture taken within a day or two of his birthday.
It's hard to believe how quickly he's grown! When we're out in public now, Dempsey sometimes gets mistaken for a fully trained service dog. And to think just a year ago, he looked like this. (Dempsey, by the way, was known as "Norm" back then.)
We need to go take care of the cat now, but in the meantime, please enjoy this little Dempsey retrospective. We'll have more pics (hopefully) later tonight.
This was Dempsey on his fourth day home with us.
Dressed and ready to work already! Or at least, ready to go to class.

Belly rub, please?
Can I have a taco, please?
