Remember my last post? I told you all that I got a new little puppy, right?
Well that little puppy isn't so little any more :).
Check it out!
This is little 10 pound Maggie at 2 months.
This is 20 pound Maggie at four months.
She's getting so big, and I'm super excited to see her in another 2 months! I'm not sure if she'll have doubled her size again, but she'll definitely be larger. We're expecting her to be around 50 lbs. by the time she's finished growing.
So far Maggie has:
-Gone Camping with the family and church
-Learned how to swim
-Lost at least 8 teeth
-Learned sit, down, shake, and wait
-Gone on a family vacation to the UP
-Doubled in size
-Gone through obedience training (not finished though!)
-Gone to the vet twice and gotten multiple shots
-Annd officially stolen her owner's heart :).
She's definitely the most challenging dog my family and I have ever owned, but also the most intelligent. She is doing really well with training and we're all looking forward to seeing the results.
I'm sure I'll be back with more pictures as she grows, I can't help but post about her..she's so a.b.s.o.l.u.t.e.l.y. cute :).
I haven't posted in awhile..but for a good reason :)...
Last week I did something I though I'd never be able to do,
I got a puppy!
an adorable, fluffy, bouncing, spunky puppy.
How it happened:
About a month ago Mom came home with two burmese mountain/english shepherd puppies and told us we could keep one. We all voted for the female and even named her. Meadow. It seemed to fit her. She was the perfect puppy...or so we all thought. Dad disagreed with us, for logical reasons :).
Notice the size and hair of this dog!
But Meadow was so cute! How couldn't we get her?
Well, after much sorrow and many tears we told our good friends about little (er, little?) Meadow, and they gladly bought her. Good news, we can still see her whenever we like!
It doesn't end there.
Dad and Mom said we could still get a puppy. Just a smaller/less shedding puppy. After spending countless hours hunting the internet for just the right breed and breeder, we made the big decision.
We we're getting a black and white female Springer spaniel.
I couldn't wait.
2 weeks seemed to take forever! But in those two long weeks we talked and argued over names. Siblings suggested StateFarm, Gucchi, and Lily. Dad suggested Tilly, Willow, and Petit.
Mom liked Bella, Bristol, and Dutchess.
What did we name her?
Once we brought her home it seemed to fit perfectly.
And now to see this little fluff ball...(:
In love with her yet? :)
Needless to say we are all throughly enjoying her. She is getting pretty good at sleeping through the night and is learning her commands quickly. As for her chewing on everything...that's another story! :)
