Four years ago today our adorable little doggies Lucy & Maggie were born. We decided to celebrate by making them a special doggie birthday cake complete with frosting, candles and presents.
It is still hard to believe that four years ago we had been looking on line for a little puppy to make our lives more chaotic than they already were. We happened upon an adorable little puppy with one brown ear who we could not resist. She was supposed to be flown from Maryland to NYC where we would pick her up. So that early July morning we got in our car and drove three hours to NYC dodging all sorts of traffic along the way. Nearly there we received a phone call that it was going to be too hot to put the little pup on a plane- would we mind driving to Philly to meet up with the breeder to pick her up? Oh why not- we were almost there and Philly is not that far from NYC, right? So down we went. We got to the airport where the breeder was going to meet up with us and were not sure what to expect- how big would this puppy be? We had a collar and lead- we were ready. What we were not ready for was this little tornado of a dog that was about to invade our quiet, simple (yet chaotic) life and turn it upside down. Her collar was far too big- she was a peanut and had not yet even grown into her little eyes. Her little brown ear was the clincher though and we were hooked- even when she tinkled on one of us upon first hold…and even when the drive home took over fourteen hours due to horrendous traffic on I-95.
