Jessie is 4 Months Old!
I really had forgotten the joys of having a puppy…
- Getting up in the middle of the night
- Sharp teeth and teething
- Puppy laundry–cleaning bodily fluids from indoor surfaces
- How quickly they grow!
- Undying devotion and trust
- First bath
- Puppy shots
- Eating EVERY plant and organic item in the yard
- How inviting kitty litter actually must be
Just some of the fun moments I have been able to enjoy since we picked Jessie Girl up on January 10th.
Early photos–look at how little she is. Weighed just over 3 lbs. when she arrived and I believe she is almost 8 now.
The best surprise was finding a picture with our beloved Roxie in it–we lost her 3 days later to The Rainbow Bridge. One of the worst moments of pet loving and ownership. Jessie will have the blonde coloring of Roxie when she matures–note the rapid changes her appearance has gone though in the past two months. Cairn Terriers that are Red Brindle are much darker at birth and the dark hair changes to light over time.
Playing with Riley 2 months later…they play non stop and love one another!
There was just one day when they didn’t get along. Apologize to Riley for a bad reputation on Facebook. He is a loving boy and learning how to be the alpha dog. We pretty much have a “Puppy Bowl” 24/7 and it is a joy to watch them tumble and tug.
Riley tuckered out after a long play session!
For Jessie’s 4 month old birthday on March 8th, I decided she needed a bath–she did not agree and I believe I almost got wetter than she did.
She worked diligently on drying off–with Riley watching. Think he was just glad he didn’t get one! (He visits the groomer for that!)
A few close ups…as I was trying to get “birthday pics” of Jessie, Riley was quite the “Photobomber” insisting he be the focus of my lens–so I obliged!
Here are a few of the favorites I have already shared previously on Facebook, but I thought I’d give another dose of cuteness. Thanks to all for being patient and viewing the puppy…again! Gonna guess there will be more pictures to come:)
Great shots–great memories. Makes my heart smile!

Trudy, especially since I cleared Riley’s reputation!! Fun to revisit when she was so little!

Aww … the joys of being a dog owner. I had a huge smile on my face while scrolling through all of these wonderful photographs. You captured the personalities of each of these dogs beautifully, Laura! Pure cuteness! I loved them all.

Julie, I am loving the joy of having a puppy around to keep life priorities in check. Fun to see their personalities come out. Thank you much for your kind comments.

So sweet! Loved the intro really pulls you in. Such sweet photos. I really like the last one in black and white too.

A reality check. Did not plan on doing any of this and had really forgotten so much of it! Debbie, I am so fortunate that I got images with Roxie and Jessie, not knowing I would lose her the next day. Thanks much:)
