Goldendoodle Birthday: Maggie Turns Five!

To celebrate Maggie's birthday, we decided to do a photoshoot. As moms of teens can relate, agreeing on an outfit was a challenge.

I really wanted my girl to wear a tutu like in previous years, but she had other plans.

She's more of a comfortable and casual dog. But she decided to go all fancy with her puka shell necklace. How formal!

But perhaps the thing that we argued most about were the Crocs. At least she wasn't wearing socks with them!

She also wanted to make sure that we got a few photos that weren't "posed", but something "that looked more natural."

When I told her that was the biggest request that I received from high school seniors, she didn't believe me. I mean, what do I know???

We also made sure to get a few action shots of her two favorite activities: Sitting for people food and running.

Happy Birthday, Maggie Doodle! Even though you are bossy and demanding, you have brought so much joy in our life!
