Happy 9th Birthday, Tess!

In honor of Tess' birthday today, I'm posting some pics from her first year with us in 2005.  Hard to believe we're celebrating her 9th birthday already!!

Tess all tuckered out on the day she came home in June 2005.

Another sleepy puppy picture!

Tess' first Halloween.  That "devil dog" costume wasn't far from the truth ;)

Tess and her Thanksgiving turkey toy.

For a dog who was bred in Georgia, Tess has always loved the snow.

 Silly Tess playing with a toy.

Tess' first Christmas.

Tess has added a lot to our family over the nine years she's been with us.  She introduced us to the sport of agility and opened a whole new world of fun and friends.  She's helped us raise two puppies (Jazz and Indy) and has managed to maintain her silly demeanor.  Tess is a wonderful, loyal companion, and we hope to celebrate many more birthdays with her!!


  1. What a beautiful girl! I love the photo of Tess chewing her toy -- what pure bliss. Happy birthday, Tess, and may you have many more!
