Pearl is one year old, today!
She was such a little thing when she came home. I used to call her Itty Bitty. Here she is in her dad's arms the day we brought her home.
The first day, next to Evelyn. Evelyn looks gigantic.
She was a sweet, sweet puppy and remains that way.
The girls became friends immediately.
I give Saint Evelyn a lot of credit for the success of their relationship.
At a certain point, Pearl entered the "awkward" age that most Samoyeds go through.
Here she is getting her monkey face going.
Most Samoyeds get a monkey face for a few months as their ruff starts to grow in.
Some get it worse than others.
It is hard to look glamorous covered with mud.
Here is a picture showing her tail growing in. Who knew it would end up so magnificent?
This here is a monkey face!
At this point, she is still a baby but thinks she is grown.
Mercy, look at those long legs.
Pearl started to grow into her long legs and ears.
I am not sure she will ever grow into her ears. She frequently looks like Yoda.
She is even starting to pull off the "wet" look without looking utterly ridiculous.
Never saw a tail this pretty.
Yup, she began getting hints of beauty.
See her ruff starting to fill in?
All of a sudden, she was nearly as big (or as big) as her sister and started looking like a young lady.
This captures her sweetness.
And then, she WAS as big as her sister.
She is so busy, that it is hard to find shots where she looks "mature."
She is turning into a beauty.
But she is still a puppy!
This will be an insanely busy day. Cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, loading, loading, loading. We head out, tomorrow, so this is the day I need to have things ready to walk away.
But we'll take time for presents and Frosty Paws, tonight.
Penny, Evelyn and Pearl
