Whose bed?

Paisley got back into my bed this morning and reclaimed it as her own — pillow and all! I’d gotten up to prepare my daily B12 injection. Paisley’s bold move was adorable and made me laugh when I was feeling stressed about sticking myself with a needle. Today’s #OneGoodThing was Paisley’s attempt to reclaim my…

Keeping me company 

Between my overactive bladder and my Crohn’s Disease, I spend A LOT of time in the bathroom. Fortunately, we have the sweetest dog who likes to stand guard and watch over me while I do my business. Paisley especially likes to sit on my feet; it’s unclear if she’s making sure I don’t move or…

Paisley for Paisley

Today we took a fun trip to the craft store to pick out some paisley fabric to make something for our sweet new dog Paisley. I was hoping to find some paisley grosgrain ribbon to make a lightweight collar (just for ID, not to leash) or some paisley fleece to make her a jacket (she…
