Sunny's Fashion

As we are getting closer to winter and having chillier weather for walking, I've been trying to figure out how to cheaply and easily get clothes she'll wear (I know, I swore I wasn't dressing her up). I've considered knitting or crocheting a few things, or even sewing a coat, but when I came across this sweater at walmart for less than $6, I had to get it!

I think it turned out pretty cute.

Entering the Rascal Stage

While I still love my Sunny girl, I think she has officially entered the rascal stage of her upbringing. She seems to have figured out new ways to get into everything--she can open closed kitchen cabinet doors, leap onto couches with a small bound, and if the teeniest bit of it hangs off the kitchen counter, she can jump up and pull it down.

I feel like somehow she's entered the terrible twos!

Sunny to the Mall

Sunny will be at Partridge Creek tomorrow afternoon from approximately 12:00-2:00. If you feel like coming to meet up with her and Miss T, we'd love to see you! Bring your pups as well since it's puppy-friendly.

First Haircut!

Sunny is currently getting her first haircut at the groomer's so I thought I could give you all an update. She's learned a lot in these last few weeks and has become a part of the family. It's strange to not have her cuddled up by my feet or bringing me a toy as I am typing, asking, "Will you play with me?" She is still a sweet little girl with a lot of energy but is doing much better now that she has learned "off" and is getting pretty good at it. We're thinking she'll grow up into a great doggie! Right now, she is 7.5 lbs and it looks like she won't get up to where her breeder said she might, she'll likely stay on the lower end of that range (maybe just 15 lbs!). Once I have pictures of her haircut, I'll post those. Then, she'll be ready to see the world.

Before: I'm cute, but help me since I can't see mommy!

Back from the groomer's and we are happy! She came out and was happy to see me, but gave her groomer kisses before she left and was wagging her tail the whole time we talked. She's a little poodle-y looking, but her groomer said to let her know what I'd like her to do for next time, she gave her the standard "puppy cut" this time. She seems like she shrunk down (she's got a lot of fur) and it makes her look almost dainty with her paws trimmed so nicely.

After: I look a bit like my dad, but I'm still pretty cute! I think it's maybe that the sides of her face were trimmed shorter than the top. We'll be back though.

Bird Dog!

Yesterday we took Sunny to my mom's work, which happens to have a courtyard with pigeons. She looked for awhile and then took off chasing one. She had it cornered behind a bush and if I wouldn't have picked her up, I think she would have caught it. She's a pretty spunky little girl. She also had lots of fun meeting Mom's coworkers and was very good with all.

Thirteen Weeks Old

Even though Sunny is still teething, we've had a whole lot less nipping this week. She's got some more appropriate chew toys (Lola, she loves her skunk!) and seems to be getting a good amount of exercise. We're up for some more shots on Monday, so hopefully all will go well with the vet and maybe he will have some more information about how she is developing.
