National Puppy Day

I had only planned to share a picture of Beau on Instagram in honor of #NationalPuppyDay, but I couldn’t help myself, and thought a full post would be more fitting. (I am an obsessed puppy mom, for sure!)

Beau is my first dog. Growing up, my sister and I begged our parents to get a dog. We even got so far as to putting a deposit down on a chocolate lab puppy (we had even given him a name – ‘Peanut’), but the timing did not turn out to be right for our family, and we didn’t end up adopting him. Before we adopted Beau this past September, I thought long and hard about it, as I knew it would be a complete lifestyle change. That it was, for sure, but a change for the better in so many ways. Beau brings us so much joy, it is hard to put into words! I never fully understood the saying that a dog is man’s (or woman’s!) best friend until we brought Beau home.

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that I share plenty of pictures of Beau, but I wanted to post my favorites here that we’ve taken over the past 6 months…



We love you, Beau!

      Hi Michelle! Beau is a mini Australian labradoodle! We adopted him from Swinging Gate Labradoodles, a breeder near Charlotte, NC. 🙂
