Puppalicious

According to my bubbaloo's paperwork, he leaves puppydom for adulthood on April 6th (that is, his first birthday - or 7th in dog years).   I imagine you are all aware that Billy is my adorable kelpie x your-guess-is-as-good-as-mine puppylicious.  

Late last July we adopted Billy from his super kind foster parents - he'd been found by the crew at Grafton Animal Rescue not a moment too soon.  They say that if he'd been out in the cold just one more night, he'd not be here today.

We found Billy online and instantly fell in love.
So skinny and small!
I admire a man who is proud in pink (not really, find a little to metro for my liking)
Awwwww!  Little sad puppy!  He has certainly grown into his white 'black beauty' markings!

So skinny!  And little!  And has some serious balls for even considering leaving the house dressed in pink!

They had no idea what kind of dog he was, or his age (so the 6th April is a guestimate) or how big he would grow - thoughts where a little smaller than a beagle.  Wrong! 

Recently, Bilby has been suffering from a skin condition and a sore shoulder.  Two $200 trips to Vets and he seems to be on the mend.  Bad news is he is on a sabbatical from the beach... which means no daily walk/run/swim for us.  Boo!  Good news is he's healthy and very happy.  He's also a little to well feed and is now on the way to losing 3kg's.

He is worth every cent and more!  
Just look at the cartoon-esque smile!

My happy, well adjusted bubba!

I'm aware of the fact that that sounds weird, but I do not care.

He grew up to be a beautiful swan...you know like the ugly duckling story except he was never ugly.

He's so cute. So glad he's doing well!

What a handsome pup!

I LOVE dogs and really want to cuddle with him right now...I know that's a little strange...I don't go around cuddling with random dogs...usually.

omg, he's so damn cute! i WANT him to make babies with my bailey! oh, wait. bailey was fixed so she can't have puppies. but they could date i guess. long distance.

At least I'm skinny said...

He's so pretty. But in a masculine boy way.

Erin said...

Clearly he is well loved and taken care of---those are some sweet puppy pics when he was so tiny and scrawny! Now he's a real man and so handsome. Congrats!
