Yesterday was International Volunteer Day. So, I thought this would be a perfect day to spend a couple of hours at the SPCA. I've been debating whether or not to get back into volunteering there on a more regular basis. Since we will be trying to get pregnant next year, I don't want to commit… Continue reading International Volunteer Day
On Monday, I wrote about framily, and in particular the family we have in community. One of those families is our neighbors the Jenkins. We are so blessed to have them in our lives. They have three amazing kids and they are such wonderful instigators for activities in our neighborhood. I have had a blast… Continue reading Pet-Sitting for Spring Break
About once or twice a year, my sinuses attack the rest of my body leaving me sick for a few days. And when I get sick, it's pretty horrible. My sick hurts when touched, my throat, ears and head throb, and my nose struggles to breathe. I swing between fatigue and dizziness. Usually it is… Continue reading 8 Things I Do When I’m Sick
Because of all the travel and holiday craziness, I've missed a couple of weeks working with the SPCA. Almost all of the dogs that I have worked with have been adopted, and there is a whole new set of pups there now (plus puppies who will soon be on the adoption floor). I have been… Continue reading And We’re Back!
So, this week we celebrated this precious pup. She is eleven years old! Can you believe it? She was my Christmas present nine years ago. We went to a local humane society to adopt her. Michael paid the adoption fee as my gift, and this was before he proposed! That guy knew the way to… Continue reading Happy Birthday, Jerzee!
So...this week started out really weird. I felt fine physically on Sunday until right before bed. I started feeling a bit of nausea but I figured it was something I ate (like the three pieces of candy I might have had after dinner). However, when I woke up Monday, I couldn't get out of bed. My… Continue reading More Doggie Tricks
I haven't been to the SPCA in a couple weeks, because I'm fostering this dog. However, the last time I was there, I managed to work with a few dogs, and some of them have already been adopted! The turn-around rate at the SPCA is pretty fast. I'm only able to go in once a… Continue reading Tips to Adopting a Dog
Whenever we have a thunderstorm at night, our boxer mix, Loco, sits up on our bed, stares down at us and shakes until we wake up. He doesn’t calm down until my husband takes him into our master closet, a room with no windows. It’s his safe place. We also have safe places that we… Continue reading A Safe Place
I wrote about the Clear the Shelter day back in August. I wanted to expand a little bit on why I work specifically with the SPCA organization. To share my experience on why I love working with them. Why I plan to continue indefinitely to be involved with this organization one way or another. First… Continue reading 3 Reasons I Love Working With the SPCA
Is it weird that Mambo Number Five got in my head when I started writing the title for this post? Is it weird that I started changing the words to fit with my fosters? “A little bit of terrier in my life, a little bit of Labrador by my side…” Ok, I will stop now.… Continue reading Foster Number Five!
