Hugh's Day: Happy Birthday, Hugh!

By Craig Garretson, Communications Officer

Hugh, a black Lab, at 6-weeks-old, sits on a blanket with a blue background. He about the size of an acorn squash.

Tomorrow is not just St. Patrick’s Day, it’s also Hugh’s birthday!  Hugh turns one year old tomorrow. This is Hugh’s “baby picture” taken when he was just a few weeks old.

Last week, our puppy club was able to have its first “in person” meeting in about three months, as we had to transition to virtual meetings during the very cold winter months. Last week’s meeting was held in an outdoor parking lot, with everyone wearing masks. The lines for parking spaces make it easy to know you’re socially distanced from everyone else.

Hugh isn’t a big fan of the Zoom meetings. He’d rather be at the puppy club meeting with the other dogs and people. We’d rather be there, too, as he has to learn how to behave himself… not always easy for an excitable one-year-old puppy!
