They grow up fast.

It seems like just last month Ninja and I were at the pound visiting the puppies to be adopted. We have this thing where when we are bored and don’t want to spend money, we head over to the pound. We had always hoped to find the dog of Ninja’s dreams there (since I already have Opie), but we never could really find one that fit our family. Until, of course, we ran into this little thing. She ran right up to us in her kennel, and we were immediately sold on her. As soon as the pound worker handed her to me, she started licking my face, and that’s all it took. I was in ...

Puppies for Joy.

Happy Veterans Day! For those of you who aren’t aware, I’m actually an extreme lover of all things military. I adore them and their cute little outfits, and am so grateful for everything our soldiers have done and continue to do for us. I hope you guys will send up some thoughts or prayers to our military today, thanking them for their sacrifice. *-*-*-*-*-*-*-* There are a lot of things that bring me joy, but most of them are health related. Hey, it’s just what I love. BUT, there are two things that I adore that have nothing to do with my health. In fact, they ... Continue Reading...

Weekend Recap–Not the One I had Planned

I had a pretty exciting weekend planned. Ninja was going away to Men’s Retreat with our church, and I was going to go see my favorite band play in concert with my Bestie. Sounds pretty great right? Well, Ninja got to get away for his fun weekend, but my plans changed early Saturday morning. My baby girl has been sick all weekend. She’s been coughing nonstop and now has boogers. It all started Thursday with a slight cough now and then, and Saturday it blew up into a coughing fit almost every 5 minutes. Her poor little body just gets rocked each time, and she spent ...

Not a Replacement, Just Another Member of the Family

Hey guys. I have a bit of a confession. Remember waaaay back, when I told you guys that Ninja and I had adopted puppy? She was a two month old Rottie. Well, there’s a reason why I haven’t posted about her or kept you updated on her growth. Ninja and I actually had to give her up, and it was one of the most heart wrenching things I’ve ever done. I wanted to tell you guys, but I felt so completely guilty, I just didn’t know how to find the words. Our landlord gave us one stipulation when we told him we were going to get another dog. No barking and no neighbor ... Continue Reading...

Happy Monday!! First and foremost, thanks for the comments on my last post.  I really appreciate all your kind words. And its nice to know that none of you are ok with that diet. That’s really what I wanted the post to be about, but it hit so close to home, I just kind of got carried away in my story! Anyway, I’ve got big news to share!! Friday night Ninja and I added to our little family. Meet our new baby girl, Jax!! Look at her giant Rottweiler feet… Proud papa! she’s a funny sleeper! Ninja has been wanting his “big” dog for a while now, and we ... Continue Reading...
