Scout’s 2nd Birthday

The photos you are about to see involved no harm to the animal below. I also realize I am extremely extra when it comes to my dog, but I don’t care. I love my dog like crazy and I’m not afraid to show it! hahaha. 

Besides, how can I not go crazy when she looks so CUTE?! Gah! These photos were so fun! She might not have been the biggest fan of them, but she got plenty of treats to make up for them. 

The other day, Scout and I had a fun mommy/daughter day. After her not-so-fun vet appointment, we drove around for a bit then went to the dog park. Unfortunately, there were no other dogs there, so we had the whole park to ourselves! We threw the ball around for a bit, she peed 6 times to mark her territory in all the places, and then ran around like a mad woman! I’d say it was a success. 

I then took her to not one, but TWO dog stores. The first store we went to didn’t have her cow hooves she likes, but she still got a treat there anyway. THEN we went to the next dog store where we found her hoof. The person at the checkout counter loved her and she got two dog snacks! We also learned that people buy the dog snacks for themselves too. Apparently they’re just a yummy vegan snack! 

I realize I’m a little obsessed about my dog, but I just love her so much. She brings me so much joy and I’m so happy she was born 2 years ago (5 days after our wedding!). She’s such a goober with a silly personality. While she can be stubborn and have a harder time listening than my preschoolers, I still love her so! 

She’s the best snuggler and makes it hard to get up for work in the morning. One of my favorite things she does is when she lays her head on my shoulder when we’re driving down the road. Such a cuddle bug! 

I could go on for days about how much I love this crazy pup, but then y’all might get even more concerned about my obsession for Scout hahaha. 

Instead of listening to me, just go have a chuckle over these fun birthday photos! EEEEE!!!! Isn’t she just the cutest?!
