Nolah Bean's First Birthday

Getting her first taste of surgery goodness!


This is the best thing I have ever tasted!!!
I'm not going to let one morsel hit the ground!
A little history on our Nolah Bean.
It was the summer of 2005. We had just moved into our first house and I was pregnant with our first baby. We didn't think we had enough stress in our lives *wink,wink* so we decided that we were going to get a puppy.

I have been allergic to dogs my entire life, but I love them very much. We decided that we would get a poodle mix~because they're hypoallergenic. We scoured the local newspapers in search of our new addition to the family. We finally found an ad in the Mansfield News Journal for a female peek-a-poo puppy. As it turns out, we had a wedding up there that weekend. We gave them a call and asked if we could stop by and look at her before we went to the wedding and they said yes.

Shawn and I showed up at this filthy, stinky apartment to look at our future puppy. It was one of those places that made you feel dirty the second you walked in the door. The dog parents that were laying on the couch were absolutely hideous looking. I just couldn't picture their puppies looking very cute. And then....out came the sweetest little puppy you had ever seen. Needless to say, that as soon as the wedding was over we went and rescued her from her horrible home life :) When we got home, we went through a baby name book to find a name for her. We came up with Nolah. Over time she has gotten many more nicknames: Nolah Bear, Nolah Bean, Beaner, Beanie!
She's our little sweetie and I wouldn't trade her for anything (even on the days that she drives us nuts)!
