My puppy and an Award!

Hi everyone! Just wanted to give you an update on my puppy Dixie. Yesterday she went to the vet and she still has a Urinary Tract Infection...poor thing! It's making her housetraining very difficult! She was put on another round of stronger antibiotics, so hopefully it will now clear up!

Since her last appointment (ten days ago) she gained 4 pounds! She now weighs a whopping 16 pounds! She's such a little cuddly moose!

Last week I made her official "birth announcement!" I know, she's not a baby, but I wanted to make something to celebrate her birth! Here it is:

I got the baby scale at an antique store in Ohio and I was just dying to photograph something on it! Since I won't be having anymore babies, I thought it would be perfect for the dog! And no I don't have pink walls (eventhough I would love that)...I just used the magic of Photoshop! The bow in her hair is just a digital scrapbooking element too! She can't wear bows yet, her hair isn't long enough! Hopefully by this summer her hair will be longer and she'll be sporting all kinds of cute pink bows! And that is her "official name"....Duchess Dixie Valentine!

Now on to my award! Yesterday I was so excited to find out that Kelli from "Outside My Kitchen Window" gave me an award! My first ever award....I was jumping up and down! Kelli has such a wonderful blog about her precious have to check it out! Thank you soo much Kelli! This means alot!

Hi Ruth Ann,

I LOVE Dixie's birth announcements....they are adorable! Poor baby...I hope the new antibiotic gets her over the infection. No fun for her or for you with trying to potty train her.

Thanks so much for the award. I don't have that one and I truly appreciate it!

Also, LOVE the pictures from your dinner cruise on Valentine's. How romantic!♥
