tiny miracle

My beagle won’t poop in the rain. Sunday morning there was a storm that included flash flood warnings. I knew then (at 6am when the obnoxiously loud weather alarm sounded on my cell) that this was going to be a rough day for my little muppet. I’m not sure if it’s a beagle trait, but…

sweetie

Mac, ma petite puce (my little flea), went to the vet for a recheck and got a B+. My final rabies shot was over a week ago so at this point I’d say we’re both “out of the woods.” Between the cat attack, my rabies vaccinations and Mac’s skin/ear problems, I’d like to avoid the…

furry baby

My furry baby, Mac, is still fighting an ear infection. We’ve had problems with his ears since he was very little. He’s on Apoquel for the inflammation. His paws also get inflamed and he’ll attack them if I’m not around to distract him, so we spend a lot of time napping and watching movies. On…

reboot

I’ve typed out this post twice three times (so far). I had a clear thought about what I wanted to say, but somehow it got fuzzy. I stepped away from the computer, made dinner, washed dishes, made granola (burned it), made more granola (burned it less) and managed a half-hearted workout (it still counts!). I…

the pet shop

My life is pet-centric, I’m not ashamed to admit it. I’m not “obsessed” but I do love them very very much. I do talk to them like they totally understand everything I say, and consider them family. I don’t, however, have any artwork hanging in my house in homage to beagles or siamese cats. I’m…

They’re Golden Doodles, both parents are Golden Doodles so I call these guys Twoodles (of course). I cannot imagine what it must be like to have these furry babies in…

other way ’round

Another pic of my furry children. They keep me going, you know? They need me. Yeah, I know I keep them alive by caring for them and stuff but honestly sometimes I feel like it’s the other way around. Have a lovely weekend and maybe find time to do something nice for somebody (furry or…

a very merry christmas

I finally got my holiday photo cards done. I usually just put Mac on the card but this year I have 3 furry monsters and with the “good” camera, this year’s pictures turned out pretty great. We are having a pasta feast later on today, (don’t worry, I made none of it). In a few…

finding joy

Okay, I am going to sit with my coffee and/or green shake every morning and watch this parade. How could I POSSIBLY not have a good day after that? IMPOSSIBLE, right? There are many things to find joy in… simple blessings that tend to get overshadowed by the drone of the every day craptastical crap.…
