last minute doggie gifts…

on “cyber monday” i got the deal of the century…for my dogs.  what did you say?!  noooooo…they aren’t spoiled.  not at all.  i haven’t become one of those crazy dog people who focuses on my dogs….

introducing effie…

it is OFFICIAL y’all.  i now have two dogs!!!  you all remember bella, i am sure!  well, bella now has a sister.  i found her through EAST CAN.  (go and check them out…they need good owners to come and scoop up their adorable adoptees…) she is as sweet as bella is.  she is currently a little needy, but who wouldn’t be in the new environment.  she loves to be petted and barks at anyone who walks near the house.  between bella, who howls, and effie,... Read More

introducing: bella

step right up folks…. meet bella.  she is my four-legged companion.  she is a pure bred mutt.  beagle.  hound…and a bunch of other stuff i don’t know about.  i adopted her.  she is 5.  i have had her for three years.  and, she takes after me, which means, she is HIGH MAINTENANCE. example one: she has allergies.  this means her food is the kind of dog food made out of salmon.  but not just any salmon.  it is made out of the kind of salmon that... Read More
