A sweet and fashionable life, one post at a time.

It's a Boy! Welcome Home, Kirkland!

Kirkland is a chocolate lab and we hope he will be a big one. Just based on his large paw size, we are thinking this will be true. He has grown so quickly in size and ability, it has felt like we have had him for much longer than a few months. Time goes too quickly with any fur baby, so we have really been trying to capitalize on taking photos to document these special moments.

Our darling puppy has finally had all his preliminary shots and training after these first few months with us. Wow... we totally forgot that having a puppy is basically like having a newborn child. Late nights of crying, non-stop bathroom breaks and you cannot close your eyes for one little tiny second. We are so glad we have stuck through it though to get him trained right, and also sleeping in his own bed (sorry, buddy).

Some of his skills include using the bathroom on queue, sit, stay, shake and paw. He even knows to shake with both by us telling him we want the other paw after the first shake. *proud mom crying happy face* We are still working on the perfected down motion and also bringing back the toys consistently, but we are definitely seeing progress each day.

So what is next for this little guy you ask? Well, certainly more walks are in his future as well as some trips. Since we still have snow in Tahoe so late this year, maybe a quick impromptu trip there as well as some camping. He also loves his cousin Wrigley, so we are hoping for some more family time with him and to help us continue to use up his unending abundance of energy.

We are happy to have the joy and love of a paw-fect dog son again. I would love to hear more about your favorite memories of your pet's growing up below! More of Kirky's adventures to come soon, but until then enjoy these adorable photos of him.
