Okay I'm a tad bit excited today because it's my little Bristol's 1st Birthday!!! She has been such a blessing to John & I. We got her in November during an impromptu trip to the Bartlett Animal Shelter. I had seen her picture online but I thought for sure she'd be gone by the time we got there. We started walking through the shelter and spotted her sitting in the very back of her cage up on a little bed. She looked so scared. We asked if we could take her out to hold her and discovered a large wound over her right eye. John asked what it was and the lady said she had been playing with her sister(who was getting adopted that day) and her sister had scratched her and it got infected. He was concerned about getting her since we'd have to start off putting medicine on it and washing it several times a day. The lady guaranteed us it would heal.

We stepped outside to talk about it and obviously agreed to get her! I was so excited to get to Petco to spoil her rotten. John picked out her tag(a heart with pink rhinestones on it) while they gave her a bath. We spent probably around $150 getting everything we thought she would need.

She was, and still is, packed full of energy with the cutest little personality. She has trust issues with men and growls whenever she sees one with the exception of her daddy. She has kept me busy since John left for the Navy and we have gotten closer than we were before. I talk to her like she's going to talk back, cuddle with her when I'm sad, and take her on SEVERAL walks a day. She is the apple of our eyes. We want to get another dog eventually so she can have a playmate but for now she's more than enough to handle :]

Mommy & Daddy love you so so so much!
