today is pixel's birthday. she's 3. i went back and looked at her baby pictures and found these. this is my favorite of her. she took to steve right away. she had these incredible blue eyes as a puppy.
at 3 months old snuggling with daddy.
we love her. i love her. i didn't always love her. her puppy stage was very trying for me. she drove me crazy. i didn't know what to expect since she's my first dog. she totally uprooted our lives. all of a sudden (ok, maybe not all of a sudden... maybe after a year or so of discussion) we had this little creature who needed a lot of attention all. the. time. you couldn't just throw down a litter box and she'd pee in it. not like a cat. i can do cats. nope, she needed out and out again and out again. and out every 2 hours. and then she'd still pee in her crate.
for her birthday, pixel got to sleep in the bed last night. this is big. pixel's not even allowed upstairs. she sleeps in her crate every night. not last night. last night we had a full house in the bed. the lineup.... steve, pixel, me, cali and beauty (the cats). yep, all 5 of us. it'll only be a once-a-year event. pixel's a blanket hog.
happy birthday, pixel! we love you.
