Rosie is now 17 weeks old!
How is that possible?
It seems like just yesterday
that we carried this little bundle home!
Look how tiny she was at 7 weeks.
And here we are at 17 weeks!
Who is that big dog?
She can only get part of her body under these chairs now.
Seriously, how can that be comfortable?
She used to have a scrawny little tail…
Aww…I love when she sleeps like that!
But now her tail is getting the golden retriever feathers.
I can just see this
knocking over everything when she is full grown.
She is now in her third collar.
Can you believe that tiny one on the right?
The day we brought her home,
I thought she would use the middle one
but we had to go out and get the little pink one to start
because she was so little.
She’s not so little anymore!
Look at my big doggie trying to look ferocious!
Would you be scared of this dog?
I don’t think so…
What a character.
She is still stealing socks and things.
And trying to look innocent about it!
Life is good.
She is becoming such a sweet dog
but puppyhood is going really fast!
Although I am not longing for the days
of accidents in the house or trips outside in the cold at 2 a.m.,
I do miss that squishy little face and soft puppy fur.
I felt sad looking back at the “baby” pictures
because I didn’t take nearly as many as I wished I had!
I also spent too much time
taking care of her and adjusting to her
instead of just enjoying her.
It was just a reminder to cherish every moment!
“Life moves pretty fast.
If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile you could miss it”
