Wow, it's already been one year?
It's hard to believe, but Washington Capitals team dog Captain celebrated his first birthday on Wednesday. To celebrate, Captain's owners threw him an incredible puppy party!
Captain's Instagram page posted multiple pictures of the puppy party, and to say they went all out is an understatement.
Captain, sporting a birthday hat and bandana, posed in front of a giant banner hanging that read "Happy 1st birthday Captain" with a giant picture of the pup on there. Additionally, 12 different photos of Captain were hanging, too, as the puppy was putting on a different face for each pose.
The Caps pup was joined by four other dogs, too. In one of the pictures, all five dogs posed perfectly for the photo, which any dog owner knows is almost impossible to get puppies to do.
It's been quite the year for Captain, who was voted the NHL's Best Team Dog at the league's Fan Choice Awards earlier this year. If any dog was deserving of this grand of a celebration, it was Captain.
Happy 1st birthday, Captain!
