Does your fur baby like the groomers?

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!)

Thankful Thursday – Yoga with my dog

Me and my yoga buddy got some extra snuggles in between our movement! I just LOVE her.

Usually, I finish before she is up, but she sometimes catches the tail end of my workouts, and she’s all for a good stretch, and I am all for a good snuggle!

Every day I am GRATEFUL to have such a snuggle bug dog that loves and craves human contact – I can NEVER get enough!

Is your dog a snuggler?

Transformation Tuesday – My Dog Roxy

This Transformation Tuesday is a wee bit different than others but it is one of the nearest and dearest to my heart – my dog Roxy!

When she arrived at the shelter from Arkansas with her Mom (Mom was BARELY not a puppy – super young), this is what she looked like…. her ribs and tailbone were super visible to the eye, and evident to the touch. Despite being a black lab, she had basically no fur – just little spots here and there.

When my friends fostered her a few months after her arrival, she was much healthier but still needed to put on some pounds, and her fur was much better, but still a work in progress. You could still feel her tailbone, but much better.

When we first met her, we fell in love with her. We adopted her soon after, and we have worked so hard to give her a stable, loving, safe home with regular feedings and bathroom breaks, tons of toys to play with, as many cuddles and snuggles as she would like, and baths to keep her clean.

Her eyes are now so bright. Her coat is thick and shiny, and you can only barely feel her tailbone. The vet said she’s at a perfect weight, and is a healthy, happy young lady (10 months on the 25th), and we couldn’t be happier or love her more.

She’s changed so much, despite her rough start to life, she has so much love and vibrancy to her. She loves people, loves kids, loves other dogs, loves to play… she is so full of life and happy in her furever home.

I am sharing this because I know there are still tons of animals that need furever homes, and I would caution people not to judge a book by it’s cover, or a dog by it’s appearance – she looks so rough in her before pic, which is why it’s even more important that she found a furever home with owners who can give her everything she needs and deserves. The other animals deserve the same! I don’t know if anyone passed her by based on her appearance, but if they did, their loss is for sure the gain of my husband and I, and I could NOT be more grateful for that.

She is such a love bug, she can’t speak but she shows her gratitude and her appreciation every single day. She’s one of the best things thats ever happened to my husband and I, and we honestly could not love her more.

So here is to you, sweet Roxy, for your amazing transformation and for all the people who had a hand in helping you get to a healthy, happy existence.

Go forth and prosper ❤
