Trixie's First Birthday! - Puppy Photos!

Jimmy and I went on a long overdue date Saturday evening.  We went out to dinner, then went to see Due Date (Hilarious, btw.  I have been a big Zach Galifianakis fan since I saw him do standup about six or seven years ago.), then went grocery shopping.  That last part wasn't so much fun, but it needed to be done. Usually, Jimmy goes to the grocery by himself early Sunday morning because I hate it, and it always seems to cost more money when I go.  I was very proud when we ended up being five bucks under budget this week!  We even bought Trixie a new sweater for her birthday, since she's way outgrown everything we bought her last year. 
Speaking of, today is Trixie's birthday!  She is a year old already.  I feel like it's flown by.
This the first time I saw my Trixie-girl.  Not the most flattering picture of myself.

Jimmy gave me Trixie last year for Christmas.  She was hands-down the best Christmas present EVER.  He has friends who have a Miniature Schnauzer and a Miniature Poodle that they bred, and Jimmy got to pick out one of the puppies. 
Jimmy  had always told me that we would talk about getting a dog once I was finished with school, so it was a complete and total surprise when he walked in the door with this cute little ball of fur.  I actually cried in front of my in-laws.  I got her a few weeks before Christmas, and I'll never forget it.
 Trixie at my parent's house the night we got her. She was so tiny!  She was actually wearing a sweater that was made out of a man's sock!

  Look at that crazy hair!  This was right before her first grooming.

I'll be posting the photos of my outfit from Saturday night tomorrow.  : )

  3. She's adorable! Happy Birthday, Trixie!!

  4. Lisa - Well, I think she is, but I might be a little bit biased. : )

    Christina & Kimberly - Thanks, guys! She's gotten some new toys and a special treat today, so she's had a pretty good one.

  5. She's a cutie. I have a schnoodle as well and they are super intelligent.

  6. What an adorable little dog! I have a large dog and I always think it would be kind of fun to have one so tiny you could take them along in your purse. I'm also afraid I'd step on it and it wouldn't be a happy ending! I am from The Lady Bloggers Society and I've enjoyed reading your blog and your puppy photos! :-)
