I put pictures up on the posting page and I can't get them to move out of the order that I put them in. Sorry, but that is my technological ADD setting in. Where are my girls when I need their help? You'll just have to look at them in this order. The first picture was taken of our Chihuahua Holly when she took a trip to the beach with her good friend, Daizy. Don't you just love the matching sundresses? Holly and Daizy had a great time at Myrtle Beach! I wish I was there now soaking up the sun and riding on an inner tube in the Lazy River.
Look at our sweet Holly!!! She belongs to my youngest daughter, in fact, Adelaide got her from Santa one year for Christmas. That is why Holly has a Christmas name. She is 9 years old and will turn 10 in October. She weighs 6 pounds! This is a picture of Holly this past year celebrating her birthday. I bought her a cookie shaped like a bone with Happy Birthday on it. I had to break it up for her to eat it, but she loved it!!
Did you notice her collar? It is Vera Bradley. My girls and I love anything Vera Bradley . It is blue, my favorite color.



















Here is the little Princess posing for the camera. In the background is a quilt that my daughter made for her senior project in high school. Isn't it cute? She did the best job on it and has loved using it at her apartment in college. It is a fun, happy quilt and has hearts appliqued on it!

















Here are Adelaide and Holly in the car getting ready for a drive to see the Christmas lights. Notice that Holly is wearing her red angora Christmas sweater and it has a pearl necklace attached (you can see it a little bit). Isn't that cute? Even our dog loves pearls!! Holly loves to ride in the car and will ride with me when I am running errands. She loves to go by the bank, because she knows that my teller will give her a "treat". Holly loves treats. She barks at me when I am in the kitchen, because she wants me to give her a treat.

Now that I am an empty nester, Holly has become my buddy. She is my 3rd daughter! She loves to sleep with me at night and hide under the covers to stay warm. She has more clothes than you can imagine and she loves to be dressed up. She even has a silk party dress that she wore to Lauren's graduation party. She was the hit of the party that night. I talk to her just like she is a person and she loves me unconditionally.
Aren't dogs just the best? Speaking of which, have you seen the movie Marley & Me? It was wonderful, but so sad. Take your Kleenex if you go see it. For anyone who has ever had a dog (or a pet for that matter), you absolutely must see this movie. It was so good.
I hope you enjoyed some of my pictures of Holly. She is a sweetheart and has been a blessing to me since my girls are not at home full-time any more. My oldest daughter is married and my youngest daughter is away at college. I love you Holly!!

  1. I have a chihuahua named Chico that is 5. When I went off to college my mother became an empty nester and Chico became her dog. When I transferred to the college in town Chico clearly had picked his favorite. I recently adopted a Pomchi named Lucky from a bad home and he is my baby. His picture is my profile picture. Small dogs are to absolute BEST!

  3. Yes, and being an only child, she is spoilt rotten. Holly certainly rules the roost around here.

  7. Okay. I just have to say that any girl who dresses her dog in a red angora sweater with a faux pearl necklace attached is meant to be my friend. What a hoot! I love all the pictures and I must say, what a fabulous wardrobe your little one has! Thank you for your sweet comments! I am trying to sign up to be one of your followers but I am tech. challenged! Blessings to you my new friend!

  11. When I first started blogging I would put in pictures in an order I wanted them to appear...first one first.

    For some reason now they changed and I put them in as follows: what ever picture I wanted to be the first, I put it in last. So your last picture should go in first. Does that make any sense? Not to me either but you might try it!
