It’s no secret that I really love animals. My family makes fun of me, because when we’re out and I see a dog (or any other animal really) I ask “Can I pet your dog?” By my own standards this is not weird at all, just showing some animal love. Because of this, I also have to avoid animal shelters and humane societies at all costs, because every single animal would come home with me. I mean it..even the pit bulls, because darnit, they need homes too and I don’t believe in a single breed being “vicious”. People make them vicious! Okay, I’m ranting..

When I met Sarah, I knew she and Floyd were my new pet and human best friends–because she understands that when I write her an e-mail about Maddie cramming herself under my desk during a thunderstorm, she can counter with Floyd howling at kids playing outside in the yard. We’re dog people, okay?

Alright, so if you already thing I’m ridiculous this might be where you should stop reading. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

I wanted to wait until further into October to announce this juicy bit…but..

<drum roll please>

Maddie has decided on a Halloween costume, and since it’s Tuesday and we could all use a little lift. I will inundate you with photos of Maddie in full costume regalia. What is she, you may ask? A charming ballerina, of course.

And now for the granddaddy of them all…WHO WORE IT BEST?

  • HI – I'm a new follower and def a fellow dog lover!! When I had my son …. most people get their other "child(ren)" "big brother" or "big sister" shirts …. well I had shirts made for my dogs "I'm the big sister" my husband thought I was crazy, but I loved them and the pics of the "kiddos" turned out great!!

  • Hahaha she looks adorable! My dog hates wearing clothes but she will if I make her πŸ™‚ I'm sooo not allowed near any type of animal shelter. Saturday petsmart had adoptions and I almost started tearing up near the big dogs who wear crying and giving kisses through the cages…..I need to go lock myself away so I don't go adopting

  • I bought a pup with Giarda, severe skin allergies to this day, a bad under bite and he has issues too. he is a good little guy and smart but very expensive to take care of. I would never go to this grooming/pet store again. Every day there seems to be a different problem with him and this is going on 7 yrs.I
