Dog Mom Life – My Space is Her Space!

Yes sweet girl, this was placed here just for you so you can be comfortable whilst chewing your bone, I wasn’t working out on that or anything 😉

She cracks me up, looks up at me like “what, is this not mines?!” … love her so much!

Saturday Adventures – Road Trip to Jersey WITH Roxy!

Check out this absolute rockstar!

We did it! We survived 11 hours (round trip total thanks to traffic and stops), and while it wasn’t without a couple of slightly stressful moments, my girl pulled through like a champ! 😍

Now, you can find us all • s t r e t c h e d o u t •, relaxing while watching the Bruins do better than the other night… me on the heating pad because 11 hours in a car has my shoulders and back feeling shredded!

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 😉

 

Happy Birthday Roxy!

Happy 3rd birthday to this absolute love bug! She is sweet, smart, sassy, strong, hilarious and the absolute BEST snuggler, and we couldn’t love her any more!

Crazy to think this time next year she will have a brother or sister to protect! She will no longer be the only baby but she will always BE our baby, our very first!

We love you so much, sweet girl! 💕🎉🐾

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!)
