Last year, my dad and step-mother called to ask if they could give my daughter a puppy. You see...they breed miniature schnauzers in beautiful southern Indiana. (and of course a shameless plug for them...their site is here) We had been toying with the idea of a dog, but we both agreed that we weren't "big" dog people. As in that we wanted a small dog. Oh and no shedding. No shedding was a big requirement. This breed was perfect for what we wanted. They are small and hypoallergenic, and NO SHEDDING!! None. Whatsoever. Sweet!
My step-mom told me to go to her site to look at the new puppies that had just been born. And we fell in love........
So they planned a road trip to bring him out to us. Without Brianna knowing, of course. We already had his name picked. So they had been calling him by it so he could start getting used to it as much as he could.
Fast forward 10 months, and he's now officially 1 year old. And still only a little over 10 pounds! When he was a puppy and everyone would ask how big he would get, we'd reply around 14 to 18 pounds. Guess he decided that was a little too much weight for him..lol. We sure did get our small dog, huh?
So now to share some pics from between then and now.
|The day he arrived at our house. So tiny!|
|One of my all time favorite pictures of him. |
I have it framed in the house. :)
|He's always been a curious dog.|
This one reminds me of "The Dog"
|Our own Bad Santa.|
So as for today, I didn't plan to do a whole lot. We bought him some new toys to replace all the ones he's torn up. And at the last minute I decided to make a party hat just for pictures. He was OH so thrilled!
|I call this one |
"It's my party and I'll cry if I want to"
|What he really thought of the hat|
|"You're putting these on your blog aren't you?"|
