23 Months!

Look at this handsome mug!

Basil is 23 months old. He's still weighing in at 24.5 lbs, but he's really filled out and mature looking. He has really strong leg muscles. He's getting raw veggies to fulfill his dietary needs. The only thing new is that he had some irritated patches on his paw. We think it's due to him being outside while Keith cuts the lawn. His paw cleared up right up after some TLC by moi.

His ears were getting infected again too, so we started administering the ear medicine from the vet again. We still bathe him once a week and clean his ears 2x a week which keeps him itchy free. We are so proud that he's such a good listener. We take him to play with the neighbor dogs and kids and he is soooo well behaved. Basil made a new friend Betty. He also gained a new auntie Sugar. His cousins love him too. Basil learned what a new baby is. Mommy has finally gotten used to sleeping with paws in her back and snorting in her ear. As a reward, Basil got a new harness and new toys. Basil is very smart and has "good breathing", so mommy wants him to do some agility training. He's too smart to stay home all day.

What's next for this handsome dog? Some agility/obedience training and a 2 year old BIRTHDAY PARTAYYY!!!!
