Have a great week, friends!


One dog home!

Don’t be alarmed, all of the furry children are still in my life! However, Oscar and Tooley both went to doggie daycare today. Oscar only goes for a couple of hours, every now & then, because his leg can’t take too much of the non-stop play. Unfortunately (or fortunately?), his brain doesn’t agree that he is disabled. That, coupled with me returning from a 10-day vacation, has made him super restless and naughty this week!

"Whachyou talkin' bout woman?"
“Whachyou talkin’ bout woman?”

Tooley goes to Mojo’s every Tuesday & Friday. She has really opened up there, and loves other dogs, so it has been a great experience for her! I am really hoping that a staff member, or a Mojo’s customer, will fall in love & adopt her!

Tooley & Oscar love to feel the ears flapping in the wind, and they LOVE going to Mojo's!!

This might make you wonder why Lucy gets the shaft. While I’m sure she would love to go to doggie daycare too, I take these days to give her special one-on-one time. She gets extra loving from me. She gets all of the toys and bones to herself, without the pesky pibble pouncing on her. She gets to stretch out on the couch. She gets yummy treats without her drooling brother giving her the evil eye. Basically, she gets to be the pampered spoiled princess that she truly is & deserves to be!


PS: Did you nominate me for a blogger award yet? I’d RRRrrrrreally love and appreciate it if you did! #shameless #pleasevoteforme #i’llloveyouforever #doit

PSS: Don’t forget, my hound dog foster pup is still waiting for a forever home! She loves dogs and adores children! Her ideal home would be with an active family, who has a fenced in yard where she can run and play until her heart’s content! A doggie sibling would be great too!

Please consider sharing this post, to help Tooley find the family she’s dreaming of!

Have a wonderful weekend, friends!


Editing fun!

I’ve been having fun with PicMonkey, editing some pics of the pups & kiddo. So, I thought I’d share…

We’re heading out on our family vacation tomorrow, which means I’ll be away from my puppers for a whole week! Thankfully, I have a great pet sitter who comes and stays at the house, sends me lots of pictures, and has vet tech experience, so that at least helps with having to leave them. I’ll probably post a time or two while we are away, if I get some good pictures of the wild animals that we’re hoping to see. So, stay tuned for animal-but-not-dog related posts!

Bye Friends! 


Happy Monday!

Ahh, the only time I like a Monday is when it’s a day off! No where to go, no alarm clock waking me up. Actually, come to think of it, I have the next TWO Monday’s off as well! Yippee for me!! The kid & I are going on a family vacation with my parents & younger brother, to Yellowstone. We are going for a whole week. AND, this Friday is my birthday! This is going to be a good couple of weeks ahead, that is for sure!


I hope you all have a wonderful & fun Memorial Day! Don’t forget what the day is really about. Check out my post that I wrote last year, about my friend & her husband, who lost his life in the military. You can read that HERE.


Keep your pups safe today. Many dogs, even the most fearless confident pups, can be spooked by fireworks! With loud crowds, music, and the hot weather, your dog might prefer to stay home. Consider this when going out today! Be safe, use sunscreen, and don’t drink & drive. Have a great day, friends!


Lucy says “Happy Memorial Day” too, but she hates wearing any kind of decorations, so I didn’t torture her this time! 😉

As always, but especially today, thank you to all those who have served, or are currently serving, our country! And thank you to the friends and family members that support our country’s heroes!


Black & White Sunday

I’ve noticed a new thing (to me anyway) going on in the blog world, called Black & White Sunday. It’s as simple as it sounds…you post a picture(s) in black and white. I love black and white photos, and it’s an easy post to end the week with, so…here goes my first “Black & White Sunday!” 




Hope you all have had a great weekend. Good night, friends!


Princess and the Pibble

Lucy never whines, barks, or scratches to go out. NEVER. She will pee on the floor before she will make a peep that she needs to go.

Oscar will scratch and jump on the door. Obnoxiously. Like, throws himself up against the door, with a loud thump.

I believe that they have now worked out a system together.


Oscar and Lucy are standing at the back door. Oscar scratches. Lucy stands there.

Me: No, Oscar.

Oscar: scratches, bangs into door

Me: No, Oscar.

Oscar: scratches, bangs into door

Me: Oscar! No, I’m in the middle of eating. And it’s raining!

Oscar: scratches, bangs into door, growls

Lucy: stands there, watching

Oscar: scratches, bangs into door

Me: Oh fine! *gets up, opens door*

Oscar: promptly turns around, walks into kennel, goes to sleep

Lucy: prances outside, tail wagging

*shaking my head*

I’m not sure if she was thinking “Thank you brother!” or “Silly minions.” Pretty sure it was the latter!



Do your dogs ever seem to team up? Do you think dogs somehow speak to each other? Share your silly stories with me!


Oh, to be a Hound dog

This little hound dog.

She is quite the energetic ball of cray cray.

Ok, she doesn’t look all cray cray in that picture. She’s sweet, and innocent, and calm…when she’s sleeping!

It’s not that she is bad. She is just a young hound, who’s never had any kind of training or discipline or structure. She is nuts about the woodland creatures…and trees surround my house. So there are birds, squirrels, raccoons, & bunnies galore! In fact, I spent two long hours on Mother’s Day searching for Tooley, because she found a way out of the fence to go on an adventure.

Unfortunately, because she took herself on an adventure, she now has to stay on an extended leash when outside. She seems to not care too much though, unless there’s a squirrel taunting her from the other side of the yard!

I think Tooley’s ideal home would be someone with fenced in acreage, where she could run and chase creatures, while staying safe. And then she’d get to be inside on a nice comfy cozy bed of course, whenever she pleases. A doggie playmate would be good too, because she adores other dogs! (She actually went to her first day of doggie daycare this week, and will be going a couple times per week from now on!)


Unfortunately, we have yet to get a single inquiry on her. I was really hoping she’d be adopted by the time we go on vacation at the end of the month. I always hate to shuffle my fosters around. But, it is what it is.

She really is a good dog, and sweet as anything! She would make a fantastic running partner, and loves everyone she meets. So if you hear of anyone wanting a new furry friend, send ’em our way!

Night night, from my sweetness!
