our little princess..

I mean look at can you not instantly love her??

As many of you know, Mei Mei, our precious little pup was hit by a car last November {read about it here}.  It's been a long recovery {check out updates here}, but I'm happy to say that she's nearly back to herself!  It's hard to imagine life without her.

She's been a great companion for both Dan and I as we spend mornings or evenings home alone.  Although she prefers when we're both home and will wiggle herself between the two of us to cuddle with us both at the same time.  She's definitely spoiled - most mornings we wake up to find her sprawled out on the couch like she own's the place!

She loves being outside and running through the woods.  We try to get her out there daily as it also seems to help her keep her "bad" eye open more and makes her so happy.  Not to mention, she could definitely use the exercise after a pretty lethargic winter

She's still a little wobbly and will sometimes run into things.  We are unsure if her vision was affected by the accident, but she seems to be adapting well to any changes.  She's able to up and down steps with little assistance - though she seems to struggle with depth perception and will sometimes miss the last step.

It's amazing to look back and see how much she's grown and changed in such a short amount of time.  It wasn't that long ago that she looked like this...

And now look at her...

If you couldn't already tell, we really, really love our pup!  We even planned a little vacation this weekend with her in mind!  Lots of time outdoors, hiking, and walking along the beach!!  Check back to find out all about our mini-vacation coming up this weekend!
