She’s a Big Girl Now

They grow so fast. Sniff.

Last night at agility, Fiona did the full-size dog walk without hesitation. It may not sound like a big deal, but for Fiona it was. For months she’s been frightened and would promptly turn around and run off the “on” ramp. But not last night. I was so proud of my big girl.

Fiona at 21 days old eating lunch with her siblings. She's the one with the white collar.

The whole thing got me thinking…and remembering.

How my fiancé and I flew from New Jersey to Iowa to pick up Miss Fiona.

How – even that first night in the hotel room – she was so self-assured, confident…and so sweet.

How I hid her under my jacket on the airplane ride home – and how good she was the whole time.

How quickly she took to her brothers, Finnegan and Moonie. She dispensed kisses instantly.

How little she was – I could scoop her up with just one hand.

Fiona is now 1-1/2 years old and she grows more affectionate by the day. She’s tall for a Kerry Blue girl and weighs a healthy 34 lbs. You almost forget that she was a tiny puppy once.

That is, until she runs up and mouths your forearm.
