Saturday Snapshot

February 18, 2012

Sixteen years ago yesterday, Milou became a part of our family.  Vance was way beyond excited, since he’d been begging for a dog for years, but Milou wasn’t so sure about things.   It didn’t take her long to settle in and get him wrapped around her little paw.  This photo was taken two days after we got her.  She’s gotten bigger and her head’s turned white, but Milou’s still sweet.  These days, she’s slow and sleeps a lot, but she still enjoys eating.  She’s in charge around here and we cater to her every whim.

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce of At Home With Books.  It’s easy to participate – just post a picture that was taken by you, a friend, or a family member and add your link on Alyce’s site.

    What a beautiful photo. A couple of real cuties! And Milou is obviously very good at posing.

    Aw, cute picture! Milou made for quite a cute puppy.

    I know what you mean about catering to your dog’s every whim. I think we got things a little backwards here because our dog Rudy is definitely the prince of the household, and we are but servants existing merely to cater to his many desires! 😉

    She’s awfully cute. My guy is begging for a dog too. I’m not sure my cat would approve.
