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…

holly jolly

After my last post (about being a light in so much dark), I decided to make the most of the weekend and get my Christmas cards ready. They are adorable, I am biased of course since every year the card has my dog on it in some form or another. This year the cats also…

eat, drink, and be furry

BIG SURPRISE. I put my beagle on this year’s Christmas card. It’s no real surprise. Mac is on the card EVERY year.  He’s my monster, after all.  The cats don’t know yet that they didn’t get spot on the card… 1. because they are cats and  2. because cats don’t give a sh*t. So, I…

it happens

This story is a good example of me “going with the flow” as opposed to “nuclear meltdown”. We’ve all had those days where the sh*t hits the fan and we handled it poorly. But when we deal with crisis and do a great job we should take notice… because we are awesome! We totally got…

it’s all good

Mac survived Fourth of July weekend! He cuddled up with me on the couch while I watched a few movies. No biggie. I haven’t posted many pictures of him on the blog lately, not since his surgery/recovery. I do post an “obscene amount” of pet pictures on my instagram and facebook, though. I realize this…

My inflammation is subsiding, I sleep more comfortably and I have not had a reaction to anything I’ve eaten in the last seven days.  I’ve planned out another week of food and even prepped most…

say something

I played this song on repeat this morning while I wandered around the house (that’s how I get dressed in the morning… which surprises no one.). After about the third go my dog, Mac, started to let out little howls in the crescendos. It was almost the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen him do, almost.…

spring ahead

I managed to make cookies last night without burning them. Quite an accomplishment, if you’re ME. My poor little beagle is almost healed, he had a tiny relapse a couple weeks ago with his ear infection. Back to the vet we went, we’ve got new meds and so far everything looks great. Lately, I’ve been…

screwdles

The past week has been more stressful than I anticipated. I have been camped out on the couch either with Mac laying in my lap or snoring next to me in his crate. He had one bandage change 4 days ago and he will go again to have fresh bandages put on tomorrow. His ten…
