Lola, Sophie and I all had birthdays recently. . .
Sophie turned 4 . . .
Lola turned 5. . .
And I turned 45 for the 17th year in a row. ,-)
It seems like it was just yesterday when Lola turned 1 and was too pooped to party.
How time flies!
I miss those sweet cuddly puppy days . . .
But not those sharp puppy teeth that
are constantly chewing and nipping!
We brought Sophie home a year after Lola arrived . . .
Lola was used to living with Gracie who was 14,
and Sophie’s puppy energy and exuberance
took some getting used to. . .
But Lola quickly got used to having a partner in crime.

Happy Birthday Mary, Sophie and Lola. The pink crowns are just too cute. Darling birthday celebration for your fur babies. I hope your birthday was special.
Mary, Lola and Sophie are so beautiful! Thank you for sharing. Such wonderful birthday pictures. Our Bichon died a year ago and we have looked high and low for a reputable breeder. They are so hard to find. Do you have a website we could visit for information that may help us? thank you so much. I hope it was ok to ask. I have followed you for a very long time through all of your beautiful Bichons.
Thank you Janet! I’ll send you an email. 🐾🐾

I can’t believe it has been five years and four years! It seems like yesterday! Happy Birthday to Lola and Sophie and to you, Mary! My older bichon, Juliette, passed away and I am now going through crazy puppy stage with my own Sophie. Her brother is 18 now and honestly he is quite tolerant…even though he cannot see or hear her. I truly enjoy all your photos! Thanks so much for sharing!
