Where I need to be


I was honored this past Sunday when my wonderful friends (and sorority sisters) threw me a surprise Puppy Shower!!  I felt so special and was totally caught off guard.  It's nice that my friends thought of me and wanted to welcome our newest bully to the family.  So, of course, we had to get T-Bone to come meet everyone & he did so well!  









I wonder how many people can say they have had a Puppy Shower?  I had an 'It's a Boy' ribbon to wear, and 'It's a Boy' cupcakes!  It was so cute.  I know I kept laughing (it's a nervous habit - lol) and smiling.   T-Bone is such a lucky little to boy to be so welcomed into our lives!  We love him dearly (Sarge & Stella too, of course).

Being a bulldog mom is my passion.  I love that we have now had the opportunity to rescue.  I know that bulldogs are my calling and I look forward to the work I have in the future to take care of more.  I would love the ability to foster and nurse them back to health.  To teach them that humans can be compassionate when they have been filled with doubt.  To give them hope when they have lost it, and to mend their broken hearts.  And of course, blog about all the fun and funny things those crazy creatures do.

Being an Aunt is life changing.  It's not just a title to me or a term of family hierarchy.  My aspiration is to love my nieces and nephews unconditionally.  I want them to know they always have an extra shoulder to cry on, another ear to listen to their worries, and the biggest cheerleader in the world on their side.  I will love them as if they are my own and given them all I can.  I can only hope that when they look back on life that they will know how truly lucky I am to be their Digga.  

Often times I feel like I could be missing out by not having children of my own.  I know I'll never know the feeling of a growing baby in my belly or giving birth (that's a plus side!).  I know that I won't be able to share in many of the experiences that my girlfriends have with becoming moms...and that kind of sucks.  But, those that love me show me that I am special just the way I am.  I LOVE being a bulldog mom.  I LOVE being an Aunt.  I am so blessed.  I think I am right where I need to be.

SmartVest Review & CF Appointment

Well, here is the long awaited official review of my new SmartVest SQL.  I don't have any current or updated vests to compare this too, so my feed back is based upon what I like/dislike versus the old and out-dated vest.

Pros:
Weight - it is MUCH lighter than my ancient Hilrom Vest.  By all means, it isn't light but definitely a great improvement from my older model.  I can at least carry it myself!Comfort of vest - the fabric is much softer and less scratchy when wearing it.Technology - it has a digital screen, so I can set the time and know for sure how long I'm using it (the old one had a knob to turn).  Also, I can set different programs based on how long I want to use it, etc.  It's quieter!!  Will still doesn't enjoy watching TV with me while I vest, but I don't have to turn the TV to its max volume!  And, the dogs aren't scared of this one as much!There is only 1 hose...so I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…

Pupdate

My little bully babies are growing up.  Sarge & Stella turned 6 at the beginning of July and T-Bone turned 8 at the end of July.

We celebrated Sarge & Stella's birthday at home with some special treats from the local pet store.  T-Bone got to be at his favorite place on his birthday (our cabin in WV).  Unfortunately I was a bad dog mom and forgot his birthday hat and treat, but he got extra loving and sang to multiple times.

T-Bone had his bi-annual check up just before his birthday and had a good report.  We are changing his eyedrops due to the formula change in what he was using - it was making his eyes red and itchy. And then, in his ear (not the one that just had surgery) we noticed a tick like thing in one of the folds. He got very irritated with us when we messed with it, so thankfully his appointment was the next day, so I figured I'd let them piss him off.  Turns out, its not a tick.  The vet said it looked just like the mass that he saw in his other ear cana…

Farewell 34

I can't believe my birthday is tomorrow!  My #35daysofdonating challenge has been so fun and rewarding - it feels like it went by so fast.  I loved receiving input from my friends and family about organizations that mean something to them.  I even learned about organizations I didn't know existed.  In the last 34 days (35 tomorrow) I hope I've made a difference somewhere.  I know I didn't get to donate to all the suggested places, and I'm sorry if I missed one you wanted!  I wish funds were endless and I could do this every day forever!!!
