Two years ago

Just about two years ago, I started looking for a puppy to buy for myself for my 25th birthday! I found her at a wonderful breeder in Warrensburg, called Sleepy Hollow Dog Kennels. I got Minnie on the Friday night before Memorial Day weekend. I sent out an e-mail with pictures introducing my new furry child! Three days later, Jenny drove out to pick up Peanut! Since Miss Minners and Peanut just turned 2, I thought I'd do a bit of a "remember when" for those of you that know her now!

Here are a few of my favorite pics from when she was just a baby! She weighed 3 pounds when I got her and was completely black with tiny white spots on her neck and paws!

This was the original "wall" I put up for her. It worked for about 10 minutes and then she learned to jump!

This is one of my favorite pics! She found all sorts of twigs and plants to eat while we were waiting for our first reunion playdate with Peanut & Jenny!

The first reunion since they were with the whole litter! Look how tiny!

Looking VERY guilty!

This day was full of laughs! I always told myself that I would NEVER be the kind of girl that dressed her dog. Well, that lasted for about 1 month. Molly and I found this pink and green, striped polo at Gap on sale. I HAD to buy it. The best part of all is that the size is +/- 5lbs. It was huge on her then, but now it barely fits over her head. We could not stop laughing when I put this on her. I hope you notice in the pic that Minnie is a girl that likes to pop her collar ... just like her Momma! :)

Okay, that's it for now. Many, many more to come sometime in the future!

Pin It!
