Puppy love!

Willis is our little Min Pin. As in "Whatcha barkin' 'bout Willis??" He was born on the 4th of July 2010. Aaron bought him for me at the end of July as an early anniversary present. After a couple long weeks of waiting, we brought him home in August. He has tons of energy and hates to sit still, unless he is laying on a heating pad, then he won't move for anything. He's a picky eater, and therefore very skinny. He has razor sharp teeth and will tear through a cloth chew toy in a day. He's good at catching balls, especially ones that squeak. He hates being tied up or left alone. He's very smart and easy to train. As you can tell, we love him :) Here are some super sweet pictures of his first few days. We haven't really taken many since. We suck at taking pictures ever, really.

This is the day we found him, on the side of the road. Our neighbors were selling him in front of Shopko. Great place to find a dog! haha He was the only boy of 5 dogs, and the smallest one of them all. He was so little, he could fit in one of my tiny hands. He was terrified and quivering. He snuggled up to me and clung to me for dear life, and that was that. I had to have him.

Our brother and sister-in-law bought a dog just after us. She is an adorable boxer named Jada. She is a couple weeks older than Willis. This is their very first time meeting minutes after picking Willis up. Doesn't He look terrified? :)

They warmed up fast. :D

Now they are BFF and ever!

We took them to Bear Lake the day we got him and they had their first swim together.
this is them afterwards snuggling up to stay warm together. When we got home we took them to the fair. They were a big hit. Who wouldn't love such adorable puppies???

Drinking from the hose for the first time

They love each other. :)

Some day we will have to get pictures of him all grown up and post them too. For now, this will do.

Don't be Jealous. You know you love them. ;)

New year, new hair!

Happy new year everyone! I hope 2011 brings only the best of things to us all. For New Years Eve we celebrated by skipping our party's and going to bed at 10 PM. I'm not sorry about it either. Neither of us would have had a good time forcing our self's to stay up too late. I work early in the morning every morning, so we usually go to bed at about 9. Aaron has been working at least 12 hours a day so we were both very tired. 12 AM would have been hard to make.
I did, however, cut and dye my hair for the new year. Aaron said he wanted to see me with darker hair so I tried it out, and what better time for a change than New Years? I'm pretty satisfied with how it turned out too! I'm happy to have finally found someone in Cache Valley who is decent at doing hair. I thought it was hopeless after my last few experiences. Here's how it turned out:

These were taken from my phone, so not the best quality, but they'll do.

Happy New Year!!!!
