and then there was a puppy

Eaton Phillips | a new addition | Pinegate Road

If you’ve been anywhere near my instagram, I’m sure you’ve found out that this little bundle has arrived! I’m a ridiculously excited puppy mama. While I’m a tid bit sleep deprived from the bi-hourly ‘take me to the bathroom’ whines, it really has all been a labor of love. I went down to just outside of Columbus this past Friday to pick her up, and we made our trek back to Cleveland through some pretty crazy snow, a lot of crying, and bunches of puppy kisses. She’s adjusting pretty well, and is just a little snuggle bug. Although, she’s just like one of these guys with the snow. She just can’t. Shivery baby weighed in at 1lb, 7oz! I do feel like she’s growing in front of my eyes though. I took these pictures on Saturday, and the amount of fluff she’s grown since then is quite impressive.

Eaton Phillips | new puppy | Pinegate Road

So yeah, the weird name: The only place I have truly called home was on the corner of Pinegate and Eaton Roads — with Pinegate being the actual address. You would continue on to Eaton Road to head out to start the journey to wherever you were to head next. Getting a puppy was something I have been passionately waiting for for the past five years or so. I love that her name signifies this next step in my life and still has roots in looking back to my past. I didn’t realize until after I’d ordered a monogrammed puppy tote that Eaton was also the name of an upscale shopping center on the other side of Cleveland. Anyone from here probably thinks I’m nutso, but I’m so glad to have found a name that really resonates with something so cherished in my life.

This is sure to be the first of many mentions of this little girl, and I’m happy to be able to show her off to you all.

PS: she’s heading to her first photo shoot today! Cue the perks of working for a greeting card company and all the teddy bear outfits and mugs we’ll stuff her in to. Serious weirdo googly eyes happening over here.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend! I’m going to spend some time soaking in this little girl and catching up on all the things I left to the wayside this past week. Yay laundry! Hah.

  3. What a precious little girl. She looks so small. How old did you get her? We got Zero (www.zerothecorgi.com) last year and he’s completely changed our lives (for the better!). Best of luck to you and your little lady.

  12. Ah, she’s adorable! I’ve always wanted a puppy but never got the chance to have one. Maybe sometime in the future?
