Charlie Update – 80+ Days Post-Op 10

I feel like I’m really dropping the ball on these Charlie updates but then again, I don’t know if people even care about them or if they’re simply for my benefit, in which case if so, that’s fine by me.  I personally find it nice to look back and see all the progress he’s made over the last three months.  So if these posts make you happy, cool, if not, you can move along.  🙂  Today, Sir Charlie is 85 days (!!) post-op — we are almost at the three-month mark you guys and I cannot believe the progress he’s […]


A to Z Pet Mom 10

So I totally stole this post idea from Britt over at Alternatively Speaking, a cool chick (and blogger!) that I happened to meet last week at our friend Alex and Norma’s wedding.  She’s pretty cool, we have a lot of things in common and she’s just very easy to talk to.  I was happy that we were seated with another lovely couple at the wedding that just so happened to be dubbed crazy dog people, too.  Go check out her blog! So today I’m running down the alphabet today in the name of Pets.  I have done an A to Z […]

Life Lately – Newbarket Dog Festival & More Dog Photos 8

So I think it’s pretty safe to say if you don’t like dogs, you probably want to skip over this post.  And in actuality, if you don’t like pets in general, perhaps this is not the space for you since I am animal and dog obsessed.  *smiles*  This past weekend, I attended a dog festival in the town that I live in called Newbarket.  It has been ongoing for at least 5 years or so now and over the years, I’ve worked the event at our pet sitting booth, other years I’ve been pet sitting and unable to come out […]


Charlie Update 13

So we are now on day 3 post-surgery for Charlie. He had his much-anticipated surgery on Tuesday morning with his orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Isakow. Now knowing his schedule, we are very lucky and blessed to have had him make the time to see Charlie and perform his operation.  His surgeon and his wife sold the business a couple of years ago and now, as a result, he doesn’t practice much and only comes in once a month.  We are super grateful for him and the work he did on Charlie.  The best though: my mom dropped Charlie off on Tuesday […]

You know you’re a dog mom/dad when … 8

You know you’re a dog mom (or dog dad) when: You sacrifice your own comfort for theirs.  Be it on the couch, in bed, camping, you name it.  I’ll let them be comfortable over my own simply because I love them.    You find dog poop bags in every crevice, every pocket and every nook and cranny.  And it never seems to phase you when you pull one out in public.  You just shove it back into the pocket it came from and carry on with your day. You start purchasing dog-friendly furniture or furniture that is more suited towards […]
