made it!

Inktober is officially over! We made it to NOVEMBER! Only one month left in the 2017 Hurricane Season! (Hurricanes, BOO!) Speaking of boo, last night I attempted to give out candy for Halloween.

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…

Mac survived Fourth of July weekend! He cuddled up with me on the couch while I watched a few movies. No biggie.
