playing in the grass

finally blogging these cute pics of pen. i can't believe she has been in our family for almost three weeks.  life with a puppy has definitely been an adventure and has completely changed our lives. it's crazy because i don't even know what i did all day before she came into our lives...what real mom's always say! to all the real mothers of little ones out there, i know i am just a dog mom, but my days now feel like they did when i nannied infants. so fun, yet so tiring. oh and also hard to get anything done.  but when i see that little face begging me to play with her for the third hour in a row, it's really hard to ignore; especially when she is growing so fast and soon she will be too big to carry. okay, i'll stop now - i'm starting to sound like a dog version of that "i love you forever" book. haha. so below are pictures of penny in the grass one evening - back when it felt like summer outside and we were all in shorts. we had such a mild summer that i'm kind of sad to see it go.  don't get me wrong, i am loving the cool mornings and leaving the windows open! i just need to get in the fall spirit with some PSL or maybe buy some mums :)

finding our penny

if you have seen the photo collage video i made on instagram (@kathrynmccrary) then these pictures may be a little repetitive.  i tried to document the trip as best as i could with both my camera and iphone. these are the real photos of our trip to pick up our penny.  

as you can see from the photo above, our trip to pick her up started very early.  the fog was really thick in the morning and the hills of north alabama were so pretty.  i kept asking my sweet husband to pull over and model for me in the woods - the light, the fog, the landscape were just screaming for a photoshoot; however, due to time restraint (that's what i tell myself) he said we couldn't stop and he wouldn't model for me.  after we finally made it to the middle of no where, the breeder took us to see our new baby.  it was so cute to see her modeling for us through the fence and saying "pick me!! take me home!!!".  i mean, those eyes! melt my heart.  i guess you could say i found myself a new model :)

meet penny

meet our new little girl, penelope "penny" mccrary. 
 you can call her penny, pen pup, miss penny, missy, or just penn. 
we've only had her for 3 days and she already has so many nick names :)

we have been on the breeder's waiting list for a few months 
so when we got the call to come look at the puppies, we headed to birmingham to check them out.
we were planning on getting her next week and getting puppy prepped this week,
but the breeder said she was ready and it was time. 

we were already in love and knew she was ours, 
so we grabbed a towel from the trunk and decided to take her home.
unprepared parents and all.

thankfully she was so great and slept the whole way home.

more photos to come! welcome to the blog, penny.
