Paisley cuddles

A terrible throbbing behind my eye woke me up this morning. A migraine overtook me; and the pain and nausea made my day miserable. Our sweet dog Paisley was the bright spot as she regularly checked in on me. Today’s #OneGoodThing was Paisley cuddles. Day 248 of 365. And Day 614 in a row! 1 year ago…

Awesome surprise full of wonder

My lifelong appreciation of Wonder Woman has finally spread to my wee dog. That’s right. Paisley got her first costume today — a gift from our dear friend Lisa.

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…
