Bauer the Patriotic Pup

July Fourth, a day to remember freedom and those that fought for it.  A day to celebrate America. And a day to celebrate Bauer!

Last July 4th, Ryan and I were driving up to Ohio for a friend's wedding.  On the way, I was stalking Legendary Labs Facebook page because I knew our pup was going to be born at any time.  About the time we got to Tennessee the first pup had been born.  Several hours later, with many updates, we found out Bauer's mom had 12 puppies!  A mixture of blacks and yellows.  Our furry child had been born!

With moving into the house we had been a little preoccupied, but that didn't stop us from celebrating this 1 year old on July 4th!
