Day 5: Talk about your pets
Day 6: A photo of an animal you'd love to keep as a pet
As Dixie enters the final days of her pregnancy (and has even started showing signs of the first stage of labor) I think it's an appropriate time to tell you a little more about her.
- Her full name is Dixie Belle; some of her nicknames include Dixardoodaloo and Puppalup.
- She likes to shower. When she was a puppy, if I didn't close the bathroom door tightly behind me, she would frequently push the door open with her nose and jump right into the shower with me.

POP at any moment
- Dixie has actually had puppies once before, and as it turns out... it was one of the most traumatic experiences of my entire life. She had to have a C-section (which is very common for french bulldogs) and, though the surgery went fine and she had 5 healthy puppies, she did NOT react well to the drugs. She was still a little loopy when she came home from the vet, and long story short: she ended up killing (and eating most of) 4 puppies in a matter of about 15 minutes. Fortunately, Adam was able to save the last one. After keeping mama and baby apart for several days and reintroducing them gradually, Dixie eventually became a great mom. Needless to say, we are hoping things go more smoothly this time around.

I have of her that isn't just a blur
