Puppy Shower

After my 7 minutes of Burpees (YAY BURPEES!) WOD on Friday night
I headed to a Girls Night party hosted by some of my coworkers.
I was a little worried because I was a sweaty, nasty, still-in-my-gym-clothes mess, but they still let me in the house. 😉
The girls (super fantastic, awesome, sweet girls) that I work with (TOTALLY) surprised me and threw me a
for miss Olivia Ann.
yup, you read that right.
like a baby shower, but for my puppy.
Let me back up a little bit…
Earlier in the week our office had a baby shower for two girls in my office.
It’s an ongoing joke (that never gets old – hardy har har) that everyone is waiting for me to get pregnant.
so when someone asked, “When is it gonna be your turn?”
I very matter-of-factly said, “I’m still waiting for my puppy shower.”
so… they listened.
and completely surprised me!
Huge thanks to Kathy, Jenny, Whit-dawg, LindsAy, LindsEy, Lisa, Sandee, Michelle and my Momma.
Whit even made a fake invitation.
so amazing.
 the goodies!
Olivia got a pink hoodie, a special cookie (which must have had doggie crack in it, because she went NUTS when we gave her a piece), a chewy bone, lint roller, toothbrush, bacon treats, and pooper-scooper baggies and a holder.
 the pink hoodie and cookie.
I was so excited.
Can you imagine what I’ll be like when I actually get pregnant??
 As soon as I got home I immediately tried to put the hoodie on Olivia.
I guess she’s a little bigger than I thought.
it was just a little snug.
(and that’s a bone in her mouth, not her paw…)
Luckily, we were able to exchange her hoodie for a pretty pink sweater.
isn’t she darling??
 Unfortunately… she wasn’t a fan.
the sweater had loops for the back legs, kind of like a jock strap, but pink.
she did NOT like those straps.
once we took them off, she was a little better…
the fact that Diz was holding treats over my head had NOTHING to do with her posing perfectly.
nope… nothing. 😉
Anyone else ever get a puppy (or kitty) shower?
Do you dress your puppy in clothes?

    omg, you all are TOO adorbs!I can’t believe how quickly Olivia is growing! She’s a gorgeous puppy!No puppy shower for Jetta; we manage to spoil her enough on a regular basis that it’s not a loss.Jetta’s not a fan of clothing. I can’t reliably get booties on her yet to take her for walks in the cold. I haven’t yet been able to convince her that we’d walk far more in the brrr-cold weather if she wore them. But the little “flap-flap” noise her hind feet make for the 1/2 block I can get her to walk in them is worth it because it’s so darned cute. That and watching her try to get *both* hind legs off the ground at once because she’s irritated by the boots… It’s the cutest thing. I keep thinking I should get her a coat. But I’m not entirely sure how well she’d tolerate it.Can’t wait to meet you when you come to the Cities!Kelly @ Dream. Strive. Succeed.@kellybeeeee on Twitter
