Sweet visitor

Our friend Trisha stopped by for a visit today and Paisley fell in love. Luckily, Trisha loves dogs. We haven’t seen Trisha since last summer because she lives far away, but we loved getting to catch up with her today. Today’s #OneGoodThing was our sweet visitor! Day 141 of 365. 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. He was kind enough to give her a belly rub turned full-on doggie massage, and I couldn’t help but capture their adorableness together. Today’s #OneGoodThing was Paisley’s new friend. Thanks Bryon! 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…

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…

Playing with Paisley

This afternoon we discovered that our sweet dog Paisley loves to play! She’s only been with us a few months and hasn’t previously shown more than a passing interest. This wasn’t surprising or unusual to us since our previous little Boston, Abby, wasn’t really into playing either and saw no point in fetch. But Paisley…

My favorite time of day

I have never been a morning person — even when I used to mainline caffeine through overnight writing shifts in the newsroom. Mornings are just not my thing. That is, except for my latest routine with sweet Paisley. First thing in the morning, Paisley wolfs down her breakfast and I give myself a B12 injection (still one…

Lap full of Bostons

Tonight our friend Jori and her Boston Terrier Dipper stopped by for a wee visit. At one point, I ended up with a lap full of Bostons! It was glorious — and today’s #OneGoodThing! Day 73 of 365. 1 year ago today: A super helpful, stylish stranger What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share!
