Happy 6th Birthday Annabelle

Today our sweet "first" baby turns 6 years old! I cannot believe that she has been in our family for 6 years now. I still remember the day Matt and I went to "just look" at some mini dachshunds that were for sale. I immediately fell in love with Annabelle and knew we had to get her. She is the sweetest pup and full of personality! She is so sweet and loves to snuggle! We love her so much and cannot imagine life without her!
She's been with us through so much. She was born in Pennsylvania (we were living in State College at the time), moved to Cincy, moved to our current home, added a sibling and pal-Gracie, helped us welcome Ryan into the world and now she will soon help us welcome our 2nd baby boy into our family.

This was Annabelle when she was just a few months old.
She still loves to sleep in the crock of my arm. Sometimes she does this while I'm typing on the laptop, ha!

Annabelle and her father, Mason. Do you think they look alike, haha? Annabelle was the only pup from her litter that looked just like Mason. Her mom was a black and gray dapple. She also inherited Mason's personality - everyone loves him and he is the sweetest dog. (Mason is on the left and Annabelle the right).

Every dachshund has to be a hotdog for Halloween! My favorite costume for the girls!

We are so blessed to have Annabelle in our lives. She is so good with Ryan and of course he just adores her. She is our little snuggle bug and she will always be our "first" baby!
