Paisley’s twin

While out running errands today, we met Paisley’s twin! Meet Martin — he’s the adorable Boston terrier wearing the red service dog vest on the right. I always enjoy meeting another Boston devotee, and it was fun to see the two dogs sniff each other out. Today’s #OneGoodThing was meeting Paisley’s doppelgänger. Day 194 of 365.…

Face kisses and giggles

Today’s #OneGoodThing was Mama‘s delightful, uncontrollable giggles at receiving a thorough facial from our sweet dog, Paisley. Their love for each other was so adorable that I had to snap a photo!

So much joy for $9.44

Today we began a little experiment FOR Paisley, which ended up bringing US a surprising amount of joy! It was so great we actually questioned our own motives.

Sweet visitor

Our friend Trisha stopped by for a visit today and Paisley fell in love. Luckily, Trisha loves dogs.

And Day 507 in a row! 1…

Paisley’s new friend

A sweet repair guy came to our house today and Paisley fell in love.

Day 136 of 365. And Day 502 in a row! 1 year…

A Paisley kind of love

Both Mama and I were sick in bed all day today, and it was awful — except for our sweet Paisley boomeranging between our beds. Paisley is such an incredibly loving soul. She’d get up from bed to follow us to the bathroom; then go check on the other one, gently curling her warm body against…

Satisfaction of weeding

Mama and I did some light weeding in our back yard today. Though the work was painful, I found immediate satisfaction at banishing the unwanted, prickly intruders. We took lots of breaks and only cleared a small area, but it felt good nonetheless. Paisley supervised the work from her perch on the chaise, until she…
