in my family…our animals might as well shared our blood. we are true animal lovers. actually it’s interesting that none of us are vegetarian?
my whole life we have always had dogs. my mom worked for a vet growing up and eventually started breeding dogs. i was always the one to take care
of the teeny pups with her. adam and i bought lilo as soon as we were out on our own. well…guess who just celebrated her THIRD bday. i can’t believe it.
eric and erin (adam’s bro and wife) got a puppy last year…turns out Roxy’s bday was the day after Lilo’s! how ironic? last year we
introduced her on the blog and she was a little RUNT- so now you can see exactly how much she’s grown. A LOT!!
so now they are kinda bday buddies! aren’t they pretty in pink? happy 1st bday rox!
just because, i’ll repost an image of each of them so you can remember just how little they were. i mean, they are only 6 lbs now, not
like they are huge! that’s the same set of pearls roxy is wearing in both pics!
our baby is so grown up! hehe. most of our clients have had the pleasure of lilo laying on their lap. she’s seriously the most friendly
dog EVER. she thinks everyone is her best friend.
we have 4 chihuahua’s in our family. lilo, roxy, hula (my sis ali’s dog…ali made lilos frilly dress!), and mini (my aunt dale’s dog). my parents
call lilo and hula their hairy grandchildren, hopefully our daughter will be a lot less hairy. though with this heart burn, she better have a ton of
hair on her head!! speaking of baby…people always ask us ‘what do you think lilo is going to do when the baby comes?” we know she will
love her… but it’s going to be hard. lilo has to be on our lap at all times. and she ensures you are petting her by putting her head under your
hand, she even tries to take our hands off the steering wheel to pet her!! it’s going to be an adjustment for all of us, i’m sure it will be just fine!
since lilo loves to be held on her back like a baby, i guess i’ll just have the baby in one arm and lilo in the other? ha!
