6 Months Old

This Little Miss turned 6 months a few weeks ago, and just like that, she more dog than puppy.
 That's not to say she isn't still all puppy at times.  She's adopted this loveseat in our bedroom, so we're starting to transition away from sleeping in her crate at night to her newly selected spot.
 She went to the groomer for the second time to get all fancied up and cleaned up.  David reported that she was very excited to go in, which is how she approaches most situations.
She is fearless, sweet, playful and all the good things a puppy should be.  It might FINALLY be warm enough for her to play in the lake this weekend.

5 Months

 Last Friday, Annie made a visit to one of her favorite places, or at least it used to be - the vet.  It was time to get spayed. She stayed overnight and has been a great patient - no chewing on her stitches.  It's hard to keep this girl down though.  The rules after surgery are no running, no jumping, no horseplay.  Clearly they've never met our wild pup!  They gave us sedatives, which I hate using, but it's the only way to keep her calm while she recovers.  I'm making it up to her with extra kisses.  I think she'd still rather be running!
On March 11, while still recovering from surgery, Annie turned 5 months.  She weighs 33.8 pounds, and is pure joy and energy.  She's wild as can be, but we love her to pieces.  Now that she's spayed, we can get serious about doggie daycare so she can run out some energy doing something she loves - playing with other pups!

Some Firsts for Annie

 First trip to the groomer
 First graduation (from basic obedience class)
 First ride on the pontoon boat - still in the too big life jacket.  Her own life jacket should arrive soon!
First time entertaining guests at the lake - Dawn and kids joined us for a really fun day at the lake, and this girl was "plumb tuckered."

Going and Growing

 Annie and I enjoyed a misty trip out to the point at the lake.  The lake is already back up, so I'm glad we went when we did!
 Annie loves the lake, and it really wears her out.  Just wait until she can go swimming!
 She's really grown into her bed at the cabin!  She looked so little and lost in it on her first visit!
She's grown into the rug in front of the kitchen sink as well!  I just can't believe how fast it happened.

Bark Box Day

 We're all still enjoying Bark Box Day! 
 The month was a tropical theme, complete with stuffy pina colada and Toucan Todd.
Bark Box even comes with something for Gracie - a box!  Everyone is happy. ;)

Celebrating Four Months

On February 11, we celebrated Annie's 4 month birthday with her first Andy's pupcone.  She hasn't had people food, but she wasted no time chowing down on frozen custard!  It was cold and icy that day, but promises had been made. ;)

Summer Daydreams

Over the weekend, we got Riley's life jacket out to see how much too big it was.
 The answer - much too big!  Annie looks rather indignant because we were laughing.  There's room for another dog in there!  Well, almost. 
 We stayed home and had a very small Super Bowl party - 2 people and 2 animals.  Annie was delightfully worn out by her time at the lake, so she slept through part of the game.
 Even though it was just us, we still needed Super Bowl food, so we had a Dinky's Diner themed meal.  Dinky's was a little food trailer in Reeds Spring when I was a kid, and they served all tiny foods.  I thought that was the best, so the tiny tacos that David got for New Year's Eve inspired me.  We had tiny tacos, corn dog nuggets, and teeny burgers.
 The weekend was fun - maybe a little too much fun.  This was Annie's version of "kennel up!" this morning.  It's kind of funny, except when it's making me late.  Silly dog!
