I can’t believe that my puppy is 9 years old today!
It seems like just yesterday, I was bringing her little puppy butt home.
She has been with me through everything. We started together in Des Moines, while I finished my first 2 years of medical school. . .
then, she traveled
with me to Michigan for 2 months for pediatrics and OB/GYN rotations,
then she lived with Jenny and I in Nashville, while I did a family
practice rotation. And she hated the elevator!
2007 –> graduating from Better Dog
We lived at my parent’s house together for about a year before we moved down to Mankato.
She was there when I married Scott.
And she has been a really good big sister to Luke.
She still has all of her puppy energy.
She loves to play tug. And always has a toy in her mouth, even sleeping, just in case you want to play. She also likes to collect socks.
She has “her” spot on the couch.
And loves being next to Luke’s highchair during mealtimes.
And over the years, she has accumulated a lot of nicknames. . .
So. . .
Happy 9th Birthday to our Abby, Abigail, Mrs. Peepers Puppy, Juju bee, big baby girl, Abbicus, puppy doggy, moonbeam, Chinese date, such a silly puppy dog, baba ganoush, puhpa (from Luke).
