Polly  Polly, the Illinois Mt Dog (absolutely a made up breed)

Hey everyone 👋
.
Quick update about lil P...
.
She’s currently in Colorado and having a great time. Her most fav things to do are: chase birds, run after things that might be birds (usually just a leaf), eat her food really fast
.
She’s likes to wrestle with puppies and play 50% of fetch. If she doesn’t get walked by 8:30am she’ll destroy something you love (usually electronics).
.
Her favorite toy is a stuffed squid named “Carl”. Polly loves her family and is nice to everyone.
.
If there are any details we missed, plz ask us questions in the comments or in IG stories.
.
As always, Dog bless us all. ❤️

Polly has spent most of her summer in Colorado, away from our Texas home.
.
She’s having a delightful time, making new friends and chasing strange birds. But Lil P’s mind has begun to wonder about how Texas is getting along without her.
.
“Please tell me about the puppies at the park. Do they play without me?” She asks. “And the birds, who is chasing the birds while I am away?”
.
I did a pat to lil P’s head.. “There, there smol Pol. Don’t you concern yourself with these things. Your friends will wait, and the birds will stay, ready to be chased by you, the fiercest pup in all the land. For now enjoy your days, and love the life you have.”
.
Polly did a big sigh, and collapsed onto my lap in relief. “Thank you for the wise words, dad. Am just a smol pup in a world so big.”
.
And it was on this day that Polly realized the importance of living in the moment. Doin a concern about what she can’t control is a dangerous way to live. Cherish what you have and love who you are. Through these thoughts is the key to happiness.

Hey everyone, I know what you’re thinking. Where has Polly been?
.
Well, the truth (which is not the truth at all) is that Polly has been studying to become a human.
.
I tried to tell her that such a thing is not possible and that her efforts are futile. I said, “Lil P, you are a dog and will always be a dog, maybe you should focus on learning how to do dog stuff like fetch really well, or maybe how to not make a huge mess every time you drink water.”
.
As futile as her efforts may seem, my attempts to convince this headstrong pup faired no better.
.
“One day you’ll see,” smol dog pol said confidently.
.
It was in that moment that I realized that maybe, just maybe, anything is possible. And if Polly can become a people, can’t we not then becometh a doggo?
.
- Wow. Worthy of a ponder.
.
-Dog bless us all, indeed ❤️

Well, Polly’s birthday party is just a few days away, and it’s safe to say she’s growing concerned.
.
This morning she woke up and began to complain. “How can I have a birthday party when I have nothing to wear” she exclaimed.
.
I knew she was just being silly but elected to let her vent for a little bit before reassuring her all was okay.
.
“All I have is my toddler clothes. Everyone is going to make fun of me” she continued.
.
At this point I felt I needed to interject. “Lil P,” I began, “it may come as a surprise, but you’re a dog and you’ve actually never worn clothes. But even still, people will love you for who you are if you just be yourself.”
.
There was a long pause before Polly looked up at me and said... “wow, really? I am sure feeling much better now. I am again excited for my birthday. Thanks for helping me realize that i am beautiful even though i have no clothes. Wow.”
.
And that’s how Polly learned not to be superficial.

We’ll have a lil P photo booth for people to get their photo with Polly, plus a dog cake and a piñata.

Sunday is Polly’s birthday and she is (probably) very excited about it. We were thinking about having a birthday party for her next month.
.
If we can get 20 people (and pups) to come, we’ll throw a party.
.
Plz rsvp in the comments (the party will be in Austin, sorry other places peoples)

The truth is, Polly is a lover. But sometimes she gives love the way she wants to be loved, not the way others do.
.
This is a perfect example of Polly loving on Sid in a way that’s not well received.
.
In which photo would you say Sid looks the least loved? 🤔
.
- Dog bless lil P for trying ❤️

I got my first dog when I was 22yrs old. I named him Sid and I loved on him more than anyone could love on anything.
.
Having not grown up with dogs, raising Sid was an experience to say the least. I remember thinking that to punish Sid for bad behavior, he should go to his bed the way I had to go to my room. Over time I realized that wasn’t the way to do it, and Sid reminds me of that from time to time by the way he humps his dog bed like an angsty teenager.
.
One of my biggest regrets, however, was that I didn’t take any photos of Sid as a puppy. I wasn’t into photography back then and my flip phone certainly didn’t have the capabilities of creating great images.
.
Zeva, our middle child, I first met when she was 2yrs old. My girlfriend Michele raised her from a pup and I gush with jealousy when I see the photos of that fluff nugget as a pup.
.
So when Polly came into my life, I made it my mission to get as many puppy pictures of her as possible. Maybe to make up for the lack of puppy photos I have of Sid and Zeva. But maybe also because she was a perfect ball of floof.
.
My goal with Polly’s instagram is to highlight the puppyhood that seems to escape far too quickly. To show Polly as the wonderful puppy that I constantly put through forced cuddling! :)
.
Last week, I discovered over 500 puppy Polly pics that I’d completely forgotten about. This was one of them.
.
When I saw it my heart got heavy and I lost my breath. These photos are the most important memories. The photos I’ll show my grandchildren when I’m embellishing stories about their great accomplishments.
.
Because let’s be honest, much like your dogs are to you, my dogs are the greatest dogs in the universe.
.
I’m not so eager to let this puppy phase slip away, so expect to see more puppy Polly photos for the foreseeable future. :)

Yesterday Polly made a new friend.
.
It was a little overwhelming.
.
- Dog bless ❤️

Polly got a cool new toy today.
.
Well, she stole it from another dog who was distracted by an ambulance siren in the distance.
.
I would have made her give it back but just look how happi she is... 😭
.
Also, Polly wanted me to tell you her fav color is orange. Thanks for all who participated.
.
- Dog bless us all ❤️

Hello everyone, a lot of people have been trying to guess what Polly’s fav color is and we thought it would be fun to have a competition.
.
If you can guess what Lil P’s fav color is you will win 10min of quality pet time with Polly. Only rule is that you can’t guess orange.
.
Okay go.
