To make this lunch I cut a ham and cheese sandwich (or whatever fillings you prefer) into a dog shape with a dog cookie cutter. I added the small details on the dog (bread crust ear and tail, edible candy eyes and nose, and fruit leather tongue). For the border I cut grapes to be "balls" because what puppy doesn't like to play with a ball? I then added some Scooby Cinnamon Graham Cracker Sticks (of course in the shape of a dog treat!). And Let me warn you in advance.. those Scooby biscuits are addicting! ;) Eliana loved the lunch and the fact that it didn't take a lot of time to put together is always nice!
Now of course you are dying to meet Mia aren't you? Well here she is!
|Mia at 7 weeks old|
We brought her home last Friday and while we are exhausted from her night time wake-ups to go pee we couldn't be happier! :) I can see she will be house trained easily, as it hasn't even been a week and there have fewer and fewer accidents each day.. well the biggest part of house training is really training the owner... haha so I guess we are training ourselves well ;) **update** if you'd love to see newer pictures of Mia head over to my Instagram! I share pictures of her all the time there :)
Mia is just perfect for our family. She was born on November 18, 2011, which happens to be my father's birthday. It also happens to be the day before our precious pet bird Kiwi died. For us, it has been a healing process.. And it seems like Mia was meant for us :)
