Watch Snickers Grow

We adopted Snickers on January 5th and it's amazing how much she's grown.  Thankfully she's slowed down and weighs only 45 lbs (the same weight 2 months in a row).  I know some people couldn't understand why we would want to adopt a pitbull but we're here to prove to them that pits are great dogs.

Waiting in line to take this cutie home

She was so tiny!

Once a lap dog...always a lap dog

Hanna talking her on a walk

Jinx isn't sure about this new creature in the house

Even the puppy uses a stool in this house

The soccer ball when it looked like a soccer ball (kind of)

Please can I sleep in here?

Off to pick Hanna up from preschool


See...more stool time

Showing her patience 

Chilling with Cam

Catching bubbles

Sleepy dog

This is what happens when I try to exercise with the dog around

This is when I was doing squats

And this during planking

See...still a lap dog!!

Lots of walks

Walking in the hills by my parents

Making sure the girls are ok when swimming

The sprinkler ball has survived - as many of you thought it wouldn't

Supervising Caty while she cleans her bike

Watching for something

Snickers new crate - which fits all 3 kids!!


Hmm...looks like the above pic just with a different animal

Snickers home for the week we headed to San Diego for the LPA National Convention

Snickers is a joy to have.  She's loving, smart, goofy and definitely a crazy puppy!  She's now 10 months old and thankfully has slowed down in her weight gain.  Since we adopted her in January she was gaining 6-8 pounds a month but the last 2 months she's actually lost a lb and has topped out at 45 lbs.  We'll see what happens next time we bring her in for her flea/heartworm med.  We were hoping to hit the 50 lbs mark so we could order more than one month at a time online but she still hasn't reached that - so we'll see.  

Hope that you'll get to meet her someday!
