She's Not Spoiled - She's "Well Taken Care Of"

Darren and I don't have any children (yet), but wanted an addition to our family, so we decided to start with a puppy! I have had dogs all of my life, so when our family dog died a few years ago, I wanted another. Darren had just moved to Houston, and we were looking for an apartment together so we decided to wait. And since then - we have waited, and waited and waited! I told him a few months ago that I didn't want to wait any longer, that I was asking for a puppy for Christmas!
We found a breeder in Bonham, TX and we bought a black female Miniature Schanuzer. She was born on October 4th and we get to pick her up this weekend!! I am ecstatic! I can't wait. I have gotten a few things to prepare for her arrival. Everyone keeps teasing me that she is already so spoiled, but I like to think of her as being "well taken care of".
This is a picture from the breeder. She is 4 weeks and 1 day old.
We went and had a nametag made for her, with rhinestones, of course! My favorite color is red, so I am sure she will love it too. And, a girl has to have some bling!
I bought this toy to take with us when we pick her up! A girl has needs - even from a young age! Memaw bought her this cute pet bed, when she wants to lounge around in the living room.
Last night, I made her this fleece houndstooth blanket - after all, it's getting cold outside!
Memaw bought her, her first stocking! A little elf boot (with sequins, of course)!
Memaw also bought her a Gingerbread squeaky toy. (Memaw is excited about her, too). I bought her the green and red one, because it's cute - and it's Christmas!
And then I got her some stuff for her stocking! Those are gourmet yogurt-dipped canine cookies! How cute are they? So she got a couple of toys and a few goodies!
We are driving up (to North Texas) to pick her up, on Saturday and we are going to attempt to take Christmas pictures, with her, on Sunday - so I will try to post some more pictures of our little one next week!

Oh my goodness she is so adoreable. Claire would just love to love on her and I'm sure Avery would love to squeeze the life out of her!
