Here it is October already and I didn’t mention my little Meyya’s birthday! As you will recall, Meyya is my little Schnoodle puppy. Well, technically, she is no longer a puppy, but she is so small she is easily mistaken for one.
Here is Meyya when we were on the way home with her, November 30, 2013 …
She was almost ten weeks old – but so tiny, not much over two pounds.
Here she is in December 2013, her first Christmas …
She soon outgrew that little red sweater so my knitting friend made a larger pink one for her.
Meyya is good about having baths. So funny all fuzzed up!
She can stretch right out of that little bed now when she wants to – the same one I bought for her and brought her home in – but she usually enjoys curling up in it as she likes being snuggled up at night. During the day she often wrestles it around the house and sometimes flips it over to sleep on it.
Meyya “grew and grew” and at eleven months of age she weighed … six pounds six ounces. Not very big, is she? So, I guess she only “grew.” 🙂
Here she is after her very first grooming, in February. Her coat was soft and fluffy then.
Here she is on her first birthday, September 23, 2014, after her monthly grooming. Her adult coat is a poodle coat, so in order to keep it soft and manageable to brush/comb, and not knot as poodle coats tend to do, I keep it short and tidy.
She’s never been too sure about those grooming appointments, because, although she loves people, she is more happy with me around. I receive a report card for her after each time and she has progressed well. I also weighed her again and .. guess what! She now weighs a whopping … six pounds six ounces! That’s right, she didn’t gain anything in that last month, so it seems she may have reached her full size.
Using her phone, my daughter took a picture of Meyya on her birthday and photo-shopped it a bit, then sent it to me. Isn’t this cute? 🙂
So … Happy First Birthday to my little Meyya!
I hope you enjoyed some of the highlights of her first year.
Thank you for reading, and … Creative Musings! 🙂
