The girl who made our log cabin complete...

Today is Scout's birthday! She is one years old! From the time we got our log cabin, I knew we needed a dog to make it complete. (We had the log cabin cat, but of course I needed to add to my zoo!)

Here is Scout at 4 weeks old and the first time we got to see her. She gave Greg a kiss on the hand as soon as he picked her up. He was a goner!

Seriously, don't you think she could've been a model?

Okay, she's not acting like a model here.

The face of innocence...

Happy Birthday to my beautiful girl!

P.S. As long as I live, I will never click on another Facebook attachment, link, photo, nada, nothing! That virus reeked havoc on my computer and I had to have it "wiped" completely! I was having to go to school to use the computer but now I'm back! Thank you for your visits - I appreciate it!

So sorry about your computer! Computer problems can turn your life upside down, can't it?

Scout truly could be a model...She's just as beautiful today as she was...she was cute as a puppy but she's so elegantly beautiful now. She looks like she has so much dignity! :)

Hope school is going well for you!

Have a wonderful week!

Please give Scout a big birthday hug for me. She truly is beautiful. Wow, how fast the last year has gone. I am often tempted to delete my FB acct. ~ so many people are getting viruses from there. Have a great week.

So sorry you had a virus on your computer! I click off Facebook onto things all the now you have me scared. ha
Wow, Scout is HUGE now...I hardly recognized her as an adult dog now.
Hope you have been enjoying your cabin...we have been in Florida since April 21st. Came down for the birth of our new grandson, who had breathing problems when he was born. He should be out of the NICU in three more days, he is doing better, but we were really scared there for a while. It has been 80's and even 90 degrees for a few days here, so we have pretty much been beaching everyday. ha

Wow look at you Scout. A mini Amie Soto Blossom :-)
If Michigan ever gets too much for you in the Winter :-)
You know where you can come :-)
Very, very happy first birthday, from Ames.... who has had her 12th birthday 4 months ago and counting. Every day is really special.
But then I know you know that. x x x

love to the cat from Frankie de tabby by the way. Also to all the tweeters. As much as you love them, early morning at 4 p.m. even if your a cat, they can make so much noise :-) x x x

I'm just so happy another one of Gods precious animals has found a loving home. She's beautiful.

Happy Birthday to Scout...what a sweetie! :)
As for the computer woes...I also am convinced that FB has virus galore...especially in their applications. I hope your computer feels better soon!

Jen said...

Pretty gal. I can't believe it's been a year- Time flies when you have a baby.~~they grow too fast.

Glad you are back and in working order.
Were they able to tell you what you clicked on exactly?
I usually only click on personal photos of people I know that took them. Is that safe? scares me.

Cassie said...

Happy Birthday to Scout! Seems you just got her. Boy time sure flies. Lots of my bloggy buddies are celebrating b-days today. Sorry to hear about your computer Shelley. I hate that virus stuff--what is wrong with people?? Hope your week gets better now. X-C

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SCOUT!!!!!!! I can't believe she is a year old already. Such a beautiful little girl she has turned out to be ♥
I'm sorry to hear about your computer. We went though something like thatlast year. I couldn't imagine what it would be like if it happened while I was in school.

Karen said...

SHELLEY! I didn't know Scout's Bday was on May 2nd! That's my birthday!!!!
So see ~ I knew she was special to me for a reason!
She is just too flippin' cute. I am seeing more and more Bernese on walks around our town. They are just so gorgeous. Look at that face!
Sigh. Give her a big old birthday hug from me!
Hugs to you too!

Rose said...

Sorry you had trouble...was the facebook thing something that came in your email? We get them all the time and I don't even open them.

I am sorry I missed Scouts big day...give her a pet and a hug from me. I absolutely adore her. I can tell by her eyes what a great dog she is.

The Early Birder said...

Hi Shelley. Please give Scout, the birthday girl, a hug from me. My, my, she has grown so quickly into a beautiful companion.
Good to see you back after the trial of FB...I've steared clear of it and your recent experience confirms my fears.
Take care...FAB.

Yes yes, she's quite the beauty & I love that face!!! Sorry bout the computer problems, but glad you got it taken care of!

Just a little something from Judy said...

I think Scout is a very lucky dog! I like that you shared the before and after pictures to remind me of how much she grew. On the last picture, it almost looks like she is smiling, and I bet in her heart she is. She has you and Greg, a cat friend, and lives parttime in a log much better could it get!

Hope you are enjoying your classes, and you don't ever have to deal with any more viruses.

Shelley said...

Thank you everyone for your visit and comments!

Some of you asked about the face book virus I got, we believe it was because of a video link that I clicked. For now on I am not clicking on any attachments anyone sends to me through facebook (photos, videos, etc.) Be careful everyone! I learned a costly lesson!

Monica@The White Bench said...

Glad you're back, Shelley!! Your girl is beautiful!!!! Give her a birthday hug and belly rubs from me and puppy kisses from Kim!

Far Side of Fifty said...

Scout is beautiful! Our neighbor has a Bernese Mountain Dog too..she is a character. They can sure grow fast in one year! Happy Birthday to Scout!:)
