Gosling spotting

On a trip to the post office today, we spotted what looked like a few dozen baby geese. The little white birds were hanging out in the rain-soaked, back field of a local junior high school, and we pulled over to take a closer look. Paisley was especially interested, so we didn’t want to scare…

Sweet P’s visitor

Our lovely friend (and fellow Boston Terrier lover) came to see us tonight. Mama and I enjoyed visiting with Jori. And we are always grateful for her help with Paisley’s grooming. Today’s #OneGoodThing was catching up with Jori, plus fresh and clean Paisley cuddles! Day 102 of 365. And Day 833 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following 365)!…

No more dog food for the mice

For many years we stored a giant bag of dog food in the garage, until last fall when mice consumed it during their invasion. We subsequently had to purchase significantly smaller bags of dog food — which meant more frequent trips to the pet shop. Plus, the smaller bags were nearly twice as expensive per…

Paisley’s reminder

Mama and I enjoyed a bit of late afternoon sun in our garden and discovered this beautiful petunia in bloom. Mama took this lovely snapshot, which Paisley photobombed — as if to remind us to stop and smell the flowers! Today’s #OneGoodThing was an adorable reminder from Paisley! Day 70 of 365. And Day 801 in a…

Uncommon cheek cuddling

Far and away the best part of my day was a rare cheek cuddle with Paisley! Our last Boston Terrier, Abby, adored absolutely all cuddling, but Paisley prefers cuddling on her own fickle terms. So this afternoon, when Paisley graced me with face snuggles, I melted! Today’s #OneGoodThing was glorious cuddling with our sweet dog! Day…

Clean sheets, clean bodies

Today’s #OneGoodThing is the glorious feeling of slipping into bed with fresh sheets, a feeling made lovelier after a shower. This is even greater because Paisley had a bath too! Day 47 of 365. And Day 778 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following 365)! 1 year ago today: My first standing shower in…

Glorious changing of the door

Nearly two months ago, we told you about our great new dog door solution. We expected it would take 3 to 4 weeks in total from order to installation, but it had several hiccups along the way. The first door was damaged in shipping; the second door was lost in shipping, and the surprised receiver tracked…
