Our Baby Girl

I hinted at it earlier this week, but let me make the formal announcement.
If you follow me on instagram (if you don't, you should probably start now),
 this would be OLD news.
For those of you who are just joining me, my puppy (Zoey)
 spent six weeks at camp (you can read about it here).

Meaning I didn't see my dog for six weeks.
 And for all you fur baby Mommies, you know that is hard.
If you're wondering what six weeks of doggie boot camp taught her, 
My answer would be A LOT, but it would be a boring post to write about all the commands and behaviors she learned, so I won't go into it.
She clearly learned how to be even more cute and adorable, which I didn't think was possible.
She'll be the perfect family dog that we will need her to be when our lives happen...
When our family grows, when we're out on a walk, when we have friends over, when we pass another dog that yips at her at the park, when we're running in the morning, when she's not on the leash, when a squirrel runs by, you get the picture.

Basically she's AWESOME- the women at doggie camp is a dog whisper-er.
And for this I am forever grateful.
Now we have a lifetime (hopefully 13+ more years) of well behaved together-ness.
If you want more specifics on camp, you can email me, tweet me, or stalk me.
I'll answer do my best to answer 'em.

It's the freakin' weekend, I'm gonna have me some fun!


  1. aww yay, so glad she's back and doing so well! i am seriously considering something similar for our pup, who is a little scared of kids/other dogs (though we really did socialize him!) before we have kids i think we'll def at least need a personal trainer!

  2. I've never heard of doggie camp before but now I'm intrigued....

  3. awwww. The 1st pic omg.....puppy eyes. Good pics too.

  4. She is gorgeous! My parents have two chocolate labs (they were pretty much mine when I was still living there) and they will forever be my favorite type of dog. So beautiful and so smart!

  5. New follower here! I have a certain affinity for black labs, and yours is oh so adorable! I've been debating sending my dog to doggie camp.... but it's just a bit expensive at this point. He's a great dog really, but he barks at other dogs when we're out for walks, jumps on visitors, etc.... i'll probably shoot you an email, because i'm really curious about how your dog did. :)
