Default 52 Weeks of Betty

I never did a 52 Weeks thread for Axel, so this time around, I wanted to be sure and get it done for little miss Betty.

What a wonderful way to document a pup's changes over the first year!

Here are photos of Betty on Dec 4th, 2016, the day we brought her home from her breeder, Grandeur Standard Poodles. She was born Oct 8th, and was 8 weeks old and 11 lbs when we got her.

As for her name....We picked the name Betty because we wanted a name ending in an "ie" sound that had two syllables. It needed to be a name that was easily said with "Axel and....." I also wanted an "old fashioned"/traditional human name. And lastly, Betty is slang for a really cute girl! Actually, we originally picked the name Barbie, but somehow on the drive home from the breeders she became Betty.

Here are more photos from the first 3 days after coming home.

In one, she is wearing a purple tutu that one of my employees bought for her...haha! I am typically not one to dress up my dog, but she did look cute in it. A work colleague showed the photo to her little niece, and the niece asked "is she a ballerina??"

Betty is so cute and I was glad to see she already has a LambChop friend.

Since this is at least a daily occurrence- usually several times a day, I wanted to share a short video of Axel and Betty's "bitey-face" game.

Axel is good about lying down for this activity- but we very closely monitor to keep things civil. Sometimes sweet little Betty will start growling so loud! This is one of the calmer bitey-face episdodes

Here is Betty, 13.4 lbs, Dec 11th

Somehow I missed when you started this thread! Betty is just SO cute especially in the videos. Axel looks like he is playing so nice with her. ( I see he still has his bracelets )
Looking forward to seeing little Betty grow up here. I love her name too!

Axel is so cute! Lamb chops isn't just a happy childhood memory for me but my dog's favorite toy!
