Hi, I'm BROWN. I'm a FEMALE! I was born at 12:50 PM on Thursday, 2/11, 2016. I'm growing fast!

Newborn: 1 lb.

3 days: 1 lb. 10 oz.

6 days old: I got my dewclaws removed today. I survived!

1 week: 3 lb. 2 oz.

2 weeks: 4 lbs. 2 oz.

2/27/2016: Yum, yum. That deworming med, just like milk, filled my tummy tum.

3 weeks: 5 lbs. 8 oz.

3/8/2016: Isn't it sweet how the simplest things can make you feel loved? Well, for this pup, FOOD = LOVE. Especially at 3:00 AM when the lady with the camera and the man she likes to hug should have been sleeping. But my siblings and I were HUNGRY. Mama did her best. But that "puppy soup." Oh, it hit the spot and filled the pit. I slept so well afterward 'cause I was full and fully loved.

So it looks like I won't live in Big Timber, Montana after all. Maybe someone local will love me forever. Any Austinites out there that want to add a sweet, lovable, playful female Chesapeake Bay Retriever to the family?

The lady with the camera thought I was so cute she had to snap these pictures.

Oh, and this is a slightly embarrassing topic. But, ahem. As soon as my siblings and I wake up from another nap, the Puppy Managers race us out to the grass. Yeah. We're learning to take care of our personal business there. The lady with the camera says her rug is NOT grass, so we're trying our puppy best to comply.

3/11/2016: An awesome family loves me so much they sent in their payment and want me to live with them forever in Long Beach, Mississippi. I hear that I will get to be a pet and also learn how to fetch and do agility training with my new master's teenage son. Just in time because this morning I tried to play fetch with a tennis ball. Good news! We will live close to the water. That's great because I'm a water dog and can swim for hours if someone will take me. Best one-month old birthday gift a pup could want.

4 weeks: 7 lbs. 8 oz.

3/13/2016: Yum, yum, yum. It tasted good to my tongue. Deworming meds aren't half bad.

5 weeks: 9 lbs. 6 oz.

I have a good feeling about this. I can picture it now: Life in Mississippi (and Other Adventures with Tiggs).
