Happy National Rescue Dog Day – show me your sweet rescues, and be sure to give your sweet babes extra kisses and snuggles today!

After all, who really rescued who? 💕

This is our VERY sweet black lab/hound mix Roxy – she is such a love, she has her crazy moments like any other dog but she is such a sweet little love bug, she more than makes up for those few crazy moments!

She is a huge snuggle bug and contact baby, and I sure ain’t complainin’!

Factbomb Friday – She is NOT JUST A DOG

She is NOT just a dog.

She is my baby. Soon, she won’t be the ONLY baby, but she will STILL be my baby. The very night I told Dave I was pregnant, I made him promise me we’d never be those people who cast their pup aside. It will be hard, the baby will need a lot of attention… but we will make it work because Roxy also deserves love, affection, and attention.

She will STILL be a priority, her needs will still matter, and we won’t love her ANY less. In fact, I’m pretty sure we will love her even MORE watching her fiercely protect that tiny little human.

Yesterday, two different people I am friendly with had to put their fur babies down, and my heart broke for them, of course. But one of them had tons of love, support and understanding, and it warmed my heart, and I was grateful she had that… the other one had people left and right telling her it’s just a dog, and it made my heart break for her even more so.

Why are we telling people how they should feel? Why are we minimizing their loss?

If you think it’s “just” a dog, maybe you shouldn’t have one… just my .02, and since it’s Friday and I’m feeling generous, you may keep the change 😉

 

GratiTuesday – Snugglebug Pups!

GratiTuesday!

Yesterday, today, tomorrow… basically all day every day I am so incredibly grateful for this sweet babe and her snuggle-bug ways!

Whether she’s curled up next to me, resting her sweet chin on my stomach, draping a paw over my leg, nuzzled into my neck or full body sprawled on me, I live for her snuggles; I’m grateful for them and reminded how lucky we are to have such a sweet, loving pup!

She makes bad days good and good days even better and I couldn’t love her more! 💕🐾

Happy Gotcha Day Roxy!

Two years ago today we adopted this sweet girl and brought her home with us, and it remains •the best• decision we ever made, as she has brought us so much love and laughter over the last two years!

We couldn’t adore her more!

Happy “gotcha” day to my sweet babe, we LOVE you and are SO thankful to be your humans! 💕

Fur Mom Life – Workout Distractions!

Fur mom life, am I right?! 😍

I usually finish before she wakes up, but sometimes she comes out before I finish and commandeers my space, tries to step all over my face (floor work + a playful, rambunctious pup…)

Even so, this is still better than having to schlep myself to a gym, wait for machines, and share sweat with those who ‘don’t remember’ to wipe things down…

That’s why I love being able to do my thing in the comfort of my own home. Some people love gyms, and power to them – you do you!

But I haven’t been to a gym in about 8 years now, and I think I’m doing okay… puppy distractions simply mean it takes a little longer, but I am firmly ‘team puppy love’!

As long as it gets done (and it does!)
