In an upside down world, smile for puppies! Good idea, right? We were thinking of something uplifting to post and realized it is Throwback Thursday. Each of us chose a photo of ourselves from our first year of life in the month of May. Some of us were younger or older than others, but it is kind of fun to look back. Above is me, Madison, at nine months old.
Our late sister Katie was born in Germany, and lived there for the first five years of her life. At eleven months old, she lived in Bavaria, in a tiny farm town called Bernbach, just outside of Kempten im Allgäu. Most of her life she weighed in at seventy eight pounds, so at eleven months, she was a big girl already. She looks pretty in a beautiful field of dandelions.
Dear Emma, born and lived in England her first nine weeks of life, then moved to Germany where she lived until she was ten months old. It is kind of amazing how fancy she looks. Her furs were super long and soft which looks great, but Mom says was a grooming nightmare. She really looks different from the Emma I knew for two years of my life. In this photo she was eight months old.
Bailie has been a goofy girl since day one, at least that is what I am told. From the photos I have seen, I believe it to be true. I guess this is her first lawn mowing experience where she turned green. Bails was eleven months old in this photo, but she still has a real puppy dog face.
Next we come to me, Madison. I look much cleaner than I am right now, and my black was a lot deeper in color. At nine months old, I look fairly grown up I think. Actually, the photo doesn’t look a lot different from how I look now.
Last, we have the family baby, Olivia. She was just seven weeks old last year in May, her first year of life! We were two weeks away from meeting her and bringing her home. It’s really hard to believe how grown up she is a year later. Mom wishes we would all stay puppies for a couple years instead of months, but she loves us at any age.
We are all thankful for a great home to grow up in, filled with loads of love, fun, food, and shelter. Not every pup has those things. Do you smile for puppies? Even I do, as you can see in my photo!
