4th Birthday Party!

Welcome to Kelsey's 4th Birthday Party!!!

 We had yummy peanut butter pupcakes.

 Quite possibly the happiest boy on Earth, Tucker.

 Dixie celebrated from her home, but was there in spirit.

Simon and Kelsey were glued to each other the entire time.
Kelsey had a custom hat (made by Grandma and Mom) that matched her party plates.

Kelsey also had a custom banner (also made by Grandma and Mom).  And look at those ears!  That took a lot of bribery to get those ears pointed up, while sitting next to the dreaded balloons. 

Simon was thrilled when it was time for pupcakes.

 The boys gulping down their pupcakes.

 Kelsey needed a little more space to gulp hers down.

Kelsey was very interested in her present from Grandma and Grandpa.

Simon helped Kelsey open all her presents this year.  He was very into the party.  Tucker was thrilled to have found one of Kelsey's toys to squeak until it died.

Kelsey posing with her hat and pupcake.  She is not a pro at modeling with hats, yet.  She always acts like they weigh more than she does.

I love how she had to help hold her pupcake with her little white "socks."

My smart baby had to go for the frosting first!
Kelsey had a wonderful day filled with family, treats, and presents.

Kelsey, and Simon came along on some morning errands.  Their favorite stop is my mom's (Kelsey's Grandma's) favorite coffee shop.  If you ask nicely, they will give you a Puppuccino (a small cup of whipped cream for your dogs).  As you can tell, both Simon and Kelsey LOVED it!  
Don't worry, they only get a few licks and it is not an everyday thing BOL.

Happy 4th Birthday!!!

My little monkey turned 4 today!  She had a very busy day too.  First, she got to hang out with Grandpa, Dixie, Simon, and Tucker. Then, Simon and Grandma went with us to one pet store for some birthday shopping.  She got spoiled there with some free birthday cookies.  After that, we went to the other pet store to get her nails done (a girl has to look good on her birthday, you know).  At the checkout, she got spoiled royally with even more treats.  The lady even sent me home with extras for later BOL!

Isabella Foo Foo's Bows made Kelsey the cutest birthday bow ever.  All the ladies at the grooming department loved it!  The above picture was Kelsey, hanging out on the back of the couch at Grandma and Grandpa's.  Later this week, she will have her official party, complete with more treats and presents.

A Trip to the V-E-T!

Kelsey did not believe me when I told her that 
v-e-t spelled cookies.

Kelsey is a big chicken, but she did very well this time.  She wanted to be held, for the most part, but she actually asked to jump down and explore once we got into the exam room.

I was so pleased that even though she was nervous, she was brave enough to explore.  It is a big leap from the scared puppy that I adopted.

She listened carefully to any noise outside the door.  She was very timid for the vet, but did pretty well.  She didn't even flinch for her rabies shot.  Almost everything checked out well.  She has a pinpoint cataract in one eye that the vet says we will just watch (but the vet believes she was most likely born with it).  While waiting to pay, a lady found the cookie jar on the counter and got one while she was waiting for them to bring her pup out.  Kelsey got so excited but then was confused when the lady wasn't getting the cookie for her.  So, I had to get he a good girl cookie too (the dogs I grew up with would not take treats in stressful situations, Kelsey almost always will and it often helps loosen her up).

Had to share a funny pic.  Kelsey was not by my side when I was having a snack, which is very unusual.  When I looked down, she was on the coffee table, just hanging out, waiting for crumbs.  Sneaky little monkey!
And guess whose birthday it is tomorrow?! 
We are very excited!
