Meet Winny!

Hi everyone... so, I'd love to introduce you to Winny! I am seriously in love after just a few days. She's a Cockapoo - a mix between a Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle. She's only eight weeks old, but she's fearless yet gentle and so sweet. I honestly cannot believe her temperament and how smart she is. My life is all puppy talk lately. She's all I can think about! But she's doing so great with her potty training, climbing the stairs and eating her food. She rides in the car like a champ, plays with other pups nicely and loves to cuddle. I honestly get tears at how proud I am when she does everything right.


Eric and I talked about how if it was a boy, we'd name it Winchester (after our favorite restaurant and the place we had our "first date") and call him Winny for short. But since it ended up being a girl, she's just straight up "Winny". We love her to pieces. I'm so excited for the future. I actually cried the other day while holding her and was like, "We're gonna do so much! Lighthouse explore, swim in Lake Michigan, go for walks and runs!" I'm such a dog mom right now and sentimental as all get out.


This bottom picture is my favorite look she gives me. I seriously die. Whenever she's outside and I'm like "Go potty!" she gives me this look and then scampers off. It just cracks me up. So, expect to see a lot more of Winny on here and of course, on Instagram. I'm kinda obsessed. She's so hard to photograph though because she's so dark! Every once in a while you'll just catch a glimpse of the white of her eyes!

  7. She is absolutely adorable. I'm in love and want a cockapoo now! I'm major dog-lover, so any puppy will melt my heart, but she is definitely an above average cutie! :)

  11. Oh she's so adorable. We have three dogs and I love them more than anything. I missed them so much when we went to Thailand. There's lots of stray dogs around and one day I just started crying because I just missed our dogs so much.

Aw congratulations on your new fur baby!! they are the best :) i remember when hendrix could go up and down stairs, and under chairs without tripping on the rungs. it was such a "big boy" moment, and i was so proud. fur babies definitely fill a spot in your heart that's meant only for them :)

  30. Being mama to a pet is the best! You sound/look so happy! It's amazing what having a pet will do for you :)
    I've been with my bf for 3 years, we've spent the past year long distance since I moved for job reasons. If I didn't have my little shadow of a sweet kitty I would be lost!

  31. Congrats Mama! :)
    I've been a doggie mom for coming up on a year now! It was a last minute decision, but one that I am thankful every day that I helped make. :) They are a massive undertaking, but oh man is it worth it! For the first 8 months or so my mind was consumed with puppy thoughts. Toys, sweaters, brushes, shampoos, groomers, etc!
    I love the name, but I'm slightly biased because my dog's name is Winston! Our former dog walker actually used to call him Winnie!
    Good luck with her! She's adorable!

  32. I have that exact same jacket that I got from Burlington Coat Factory! I used to work for TJ Maxx and I noticed we had a lot of the same things as BCF.

  33. I <3 Winny! What a sweetheart! And congratulations on being a dog mom. :) As a dog mom myself, I completely share your proud sentiment about every little thing she does. My little girl just got knee surgery a couple weeks ago and is having to learn to walk again and every step she takes almost brings tears to my eyes! I actually just blogged about it yesterday! :)

  38. Awww, she's definitely a cutie! I definitely fuss over my little baby-I mean dog-all the time. I have a Jack Russell Terrier Mix named Champ. He fell asleep with his head against my chest in the car the other day and it was so ridiculously precious. Here's to being a dog mommy, it is awesome!

  68. awwww this makes me think about the excitement of the first day when we got Niyah, my boston terrier. She's a miniature dwarf, very rare for their breed, so she'll only be 11lbs throughout her life! Isn't it great to be a pup mommy?

    Winny is such a cutie and I have (and will continue) to enjoy seeing her on Instagram!
