Show Us Your Life -PETS

It's Friday again, this week seems like it lasted FOREVER! Finally! This week Kelly's Korner "Show us your life" topic is PETS! If you know me (or Mark) at all you know we LOVE our pups! We have already started reading up on how to introduce your baby to pets...or in our case babies!?!? If anyone has any suggestions...I would love to hear what worked for you!

Mark's Aunt and Uncle had a litter of Labradoodle (mix between a lab and poodle) puppies in April 2007. We were engaged and decided we really wanted one. Who wouldn't puppies are so cute...right!?!?

We have SO many pictures with our dogs, bear with me...I couldn't decide on just a few. I can't imagine what our pictures are going to be like with 2 children!

We were able to bring Ely home at 7 weeks. He was 13 oz. when he was born, he was 13 pounds when we brought him home. :) Mark and I lived in different apartments in different towns...we had to take turns taking care of him back and forth. It was interesting...:)

The picture above is of Mark and Ely the day we got to take him home! We named him Ely Callaway Schmitz. Mark is a put it lightly...he played all the way through college...we had to name him something that had to do with golf. :) The pictures below are pictures of Ely's first vet visit. Yes...I know....we took pictures at the office. LOL

These next few pictures are snapshots as he grew...

He HATES to wear clothes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then Ely turned 1!! WOW WOW WOW~ He was in a litter of 10 puppies, Mark's Aunt and Uncle had a b-day party and invited all 10 puppies a year later! It was crazy...all 10 were there! It was so neat to see every puppy all grown up!

Ely is about 100 pounds and still thinks he is a lap dog. He still sleeps between us everynight and is extremely protective of me. Then in 2008 Mark and I went insane for a short period of time...and bought another dog. A Standard Poodle...Logan Birch. Mark is currently in school at Logan College of Chiropractic and we used a special street name as his middle name. :)

As a good mom, I took pictures of Ely's first vet appt. so it's only fair if I take them at Logans...

Ely and Logan are BEST buds. Logan adores Ely and follows him everywhere! I don't know what they would do without eachother...I don't know what we would do without them! Enjoy the rest of the pictures....Happy Friday!

We can't forget we did have a b-day party for Logan when he turned 1! It wasn't as big as Ely's but it was still a great time!


  1. I love the bday party with all the siblings - so cool!

  2. Too cute!!!
    you have beautiful dogs
    LOVE the party


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
