Winnie's appearance has changed a lot since then.
Day one with us.
A recent photo.
What hasn't changed is her feisty attitude, and amazing spirit.
Barking at the doorbell.
Surveying her yard.
Reluctantly modeling her Christmas sweater.
I credit these changes to good food, lots of love, and giving her the chance behave like a dog.
Leaving the spot that I swept for her, to go poop in the snow.
Walking at Hollywood Cemetery. "Stop taking pictures and come on, Mom."
Rolling on something 'fragrant'.
I never saw myself as the type of person who could have a little dog. Winnie changed this, with her big dog personality in that little dog body.
Happy Gotcha Day, Winnie!
(As I was gathering these photos, I was amazed at number of sweaters in Winnie's wardrobe. All of these are knit from a pattern that I designed, available for free HERE.)
