Poor Maddux. I’ve been so focused on Toby and then Bear, I haven’t really talked a lot about Maddux. He’s going through an adjustment stage, and I likely haven’t addressed it as much as I should have, because honestly, I never really thought of it as a big adjustment – although, it is. For those… Continue reading The Maddux Factor
I’ve been so wrapped up in Toby, my job, life, trying to figure out where to live and just trying to keep my head above water that I haven’t even had time to really write about Bear, our new addition. He has a very cool story, which someday I’ll get around to writing. For now,… Continue reading The New Type of Bear Hug
Hope you had a fun and safe Fourth of July! And, of course some cute outtakes!
Another sneak peek at our new addition!
I couldn’t have gotten through Toby’s cancer diagnosis without Maddux. I should probably change that tense, because we are still going through it. Maddux has been both a comfort and a much need distraction, especially when Toby was first diagnosed. I love to take my dogs with me places. Toby wasn’t allowed to do much,… Continue reading I Couldn’t Have Gotten Through Toby’s Cancer Diagnosis Without Maddux
I don’t know if dogs can get survivor’s guilt, but I’m pretty sure their owners can. Next month, on April 22, it will be exactly one year since Toby was diagnosed with canine lymphoma. Sometimes, I can’t remember what I had for dinner the night before, but I remember that day like it was yesterday.… Continue reading Survivor’s Guilt
These boys love the snow! Well, sorta. Toby totally enjoys it more than Maddux, but they both enjoyed climbing up the large pile of snow that was on my side lawn. Maddux just stayed at the top, while Toby enjoyed climbing up and down it. Usually my garden, they enjoyed running around the fenced-in area… Continue reading Winter Dogs
It snowed a lot today! My office was closed, but I still worked, just remotely. Toby and Maddux were loving it, because it was like when I worked remotely for two years. It was easy to convince them to sit on my lap all day, since neither of them wanted to go out in the… Continue reading Snow Day Dogs
Toby was playing like a puppy! Last night I took him outside and let him run around, and chase a ball, just like when he was a puppy. He was bouncing and happy, and, well, for those 15, or so, minutes, he was back to being my loving little dog without a care in the… Continue reading Canine Cancer Diaries: Let’s Play Ball
I love baking and cooking, but I hate spending hours and hours decorating. So, I tend to like simple, but cute creations. Lately, one of my go-to cakes are ones where I can use chocolate chips instead of icing to write on them. It’s a little different and easy to correct if you make a… Continue reading I Love Dogs Cake for People
