Rory, it's ya Birthday!

Hi Everybuddy, today it's my birthday.  I'm one year old already.  Mum says that can't be true cause it seems like only yesterday they brought me home.  Anyhoo, mum got all sooky and picks out 87 photos to show you BUTT I said that was heaps too much and this is what she came up with.  

I know, I know, I was a cute fella.  Kinda chubby, big knobby knees and a wrinkly nose.  Weighed in at 9.5 kgs (18.7 lbs) at 8 1/2 weeks old.  Nowaday I'm more like 75 kgs (165 lbs) and taller than our kitchen benchtops hehe, which makes for some fun times.

Life is good mates.  I have a family who love me, a sissy who likes to boss me and friends who visit me from all around the world.  It can't get any better than that!  

  Get ready to squeeeee!!  

First day home.

My new sissy, Stella.

Mum wanted to re-enact this photo, hehehe.


Still smaller than my cousin Tyler.



Not much to see after my Tutoring!

I'm passionate about the Adelaide Crows!

No, I'm not standing on a box!

Thanks mates for stopping by. 
 Can you ask your mum or dad if they can give you a special
treat cause it's my birthday.  Tell them it's compulsory, hehe.

As always,
No worries, and slobber, Rory


  1. Happy First Birthday, Rory, and many more to come. It was great watching you grow up through all the photos. We would love to see Mom re-enact that pic of the beans holding you and Stella:)

  8. Happy Birthday, Rory, you Handsome Guy, you! I hope you got lots of goodies, and had a whole ton o' fun! Have lots more birthdays, big guy, and we will help you celebrate.

    Stella Up Over!

  9. Happy birthday Rory! I wish I was taller than the kitchen counter (almost). Do you still get to sit on anyone's lap now that you're 75kgs? My humans complain all the time about me being heavy and I'm only 48kgs! I love the picture where Stella is sleeping on you. I bet that felt nice and toasty. Hooroo! X

  10. Rory Happy 1st birthday to you!!!! I loved all your photos that you shared. I think you could be rinsing the dishes since you are so tall at the counters/sink. I can only imagine how hard it is to NOT lick everything up there.

    I've never been around your breed before in real life but I sure think you are so handsome. Hope you have had a really special day today.
    Stewie, Tucker and Ellen

  11. Happy happy birthday! Love the new look of your blog!

  12. Happy birthday Rory. I gotta tell friend every time my MOM sees a picture of you she get all melty. She as always been a sucker for a really big dog. Pete, before me, was a Great Dane/Lab mix and he weighed 145 pounds. I keep telling her if she fed me more I'd weigh more. hehhehe I am sure to get a special treat because of you. Thanks buddy.

  13. Hi Rory,

    I am new here. can we be friends? Happy Birthday!!!!! Will you continue to grow? You look like a mini pony now. My dog, Rich says he is so jealous of your height because you can reach the kitchen counter. Hehe.

  17. Happy Birthday Dear Rory, you still look like a "big puppy". Our peeps gave us vanilla ice-cream to celebrate your birthday. My dad said that if you hurry along and get right over here, that he'd give you a big bowl of vanilla ice cream. Sound good?

  18. Happy 1st birthday Rory!!!!!

  19. Happy 1st birthday Rory.

  20. Happy Happy Birthday Rory! Have a wonderful day full of fun! Oh, we loved all your photos, Mum laughed until there was water coming out of her eyes. Don't know which was funniest, breaking your sissy's legs, Stella using you for a bed or just being exactly the right hight to help yourself from the kitchen.
