Bacon’s First Week

Having a new puppy in my life while planning a wedding and working full-time is slightly insane, but I wouldn’t give it up for the world. Here are some random snapshots from his first week so far!

He’s already visibly grown and is getting used to us as his humans:

I Got a Dog!

I love dogs and I really missed having one around. Teddy was our first family dog, but ultimately, he belonged to my sister. He is also slightly too big for an apartment.

So meet Bacon, Nash and I’s new friend. He is a purebred miniature schnauzer who is currently a mini Pacman.

Sorry the blog has been a bit slow! Having a new puppy is almost like having a baby, a bit of a life change. I love Bacon so much already.

You can follow his adventures at instagram.com/baconthedoggers.

Happy 6th Birthday Teddy!

I can’t believe Teddy turns 6 this year. He’s essentially grown up with this blog.

Though he lives in the suburbs with my parents and I’m downtown, I love that our family had our lives change for the better because of this little fluff ball. There’s no love as positive as that of a dog each time they see you.

Autumn Teddy 2

Here are some photos of Teddy I took on our autumn stroll with my iPhone 7 Plus. Here is the post with my DSLR for comparison.

In outdoor lighting this phone makes a killer camera.

Teddy’s Christmas Morning!

Merry Christmas! Teddy was probably the one with the most presents to unwrap on Christmas day. He has been waiting patiently for them ever since we put them under the tree. He’d stare at them every day but was nice enough not to touch them until Christmas morning. Here are some random photos of him digging into his presents.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Window

IMG_1415
I’ve never done any of the Daily Post Challenges before on WordPress but this one just coincidentally fit with something I just shot. I captured Teddy eagerly waiting by the window for my sister to come home.

It’s so hard to leave him at home sometimes because we know how anxious he must be for us to get back. Whether it is 2 hours or 5 minutes, he gives us the same warm welcome when he sees us walk through the door. I really liked this shot because although it’s still, it captured the warmth and the enthusiasm he has when he is perched on the couch watching the world below.

I feel like I haven’t posted photos of Teddy in a while, though I could totally be wrong. Despite what it looks like, it’s actually impossible to get him to look at the camera. A lot of shouting and waving things around is involved. Here are some shots of him basically blending into the basement carpet.

Woofstock 2013

Woofstock 2013

Yesterday I took Teddy to Woofstock for the second time. His birthday (which also happened to be yesterday) always falls close to the festival so it doubles as a celebration, complete with all the goodies!

Woofstock 2013
Woofstock 2013There’s a dog version of everything you can imagine out there somewhere, including ice cream. Me and my sister actually tried some dog ice-cream ourselves (not pictured). Don’t worry, it was just a sugar-free vanilla, so perfectly human edible. Honestly, it was one of the best vanilla ice-creams I have ever had.

Woofstock 2013Dog cookies never cease to look delicious.

Woofstock 2013It’s Batman and Robin!
