Warning: the following post is overflowing with photos! LOL
Here we go . . . . long awaited and promised snapshots of my Christmas puppy! Isn't she a doll? :-)
This top photo was a day or two after I actually got her. Looking at her now, I can see how much she has grown and matured compared to this pic! Her little snout has also gotten a bit longer. But she was (is) sooooo cute! Nine weeks old here.
Another pic from nine weeks . . . . just hanging out.
I have since discovered that soon as I leave the couch or recliner, if there are any pillows or blankets nearby she will take them over in a matter of seconds! This just happened to be the first time she did and promptly fell asleep in the lap of luxury, around nine weeks old. ;-)
This was one of those photos where I asked her to pose and held up my camera and she did! She loves posing for her mommy! LOL Around ten weeks old here.
Also around ten weeks old, close to eleven, taking her first big walk around Forest Park in St. Louis, MO when my dear husband (pictured walking her here) and I visited family for my sister in law's graduation from graduate school! She loved going on the walk and meeting people and dogs!
Here she is wearing her very first sweater, the one I got her for Christmas that soon was too small for her. But she sure looked cute!
Another posed photo courtesy of Winnie Shih Poo! Isn't that just the cutest teddy bear face ever?!? Around eleven or twelve weeks old here.
Same day I think as the last one. She discovered she could jump onto the back of our couch and perch there much more like a cat than a puppy! She worries me when she does that but there's no stopping her! She loves to do it every time her daddy gets up to go to another room, watching for his return! ;-)
"Aren't I cute?!?" Posing with one of her Christmas presents from her grandma, a stuffed puppy. She's photogenic! LOL About 12 weeks old.
Another snapshot when I asked her to "sit" and she promptly obliged! She's smart: she learned sit within about 10 minutes of training at only 9 weeks old and learned how to fetch shortly thereafter! About twelve weeks here.
Her softer side . . . . snuggling contentedly with her mommy. ;-) I just love that face! About 12-13 weeks old here.
And finally, peeking out from under our couch when I called for her! "What?!? Did you find my new secret hiding place already?!?" hahaha About 13 weeks old here.

She is now about 16 weeks old. Time flies! She looks much the same as this last snapshot, except of course matured and a little bigger! She's still my sweet puppy. She learns pretty quickly, now I just need to figure out how to get her to STOP nipping and biting! ;-) She is mostly black but has 3/4 white tipped paws, and a tiny little white tip to her tail that curls over her back in the cutest fashion, and a bit of white on her throat called "tuxedo" markings!
Hopefully all the pics added a smile and a bright spot to your day! It's Friday, so I figured we could start the weekend out right!! Have a good one, friends!
