Adoptiversary time!

Today marks one year that sweet Stella was adopted!! She came to the rescue from a good Samaritan who rescued her mama and babies. Stella was with me for a couple of months, until her future mama saw a video I posted of her playing on my FB page. She was then adopted, and spends her days with her doggie sis Izzy! Here are some of my favorite pictures of this beautiful brindle girl, as well as a couple pics of her and hew forever sister!

52 Snapshots of Life, Week 10: Mischief

I’ve been seriously slacking but trying to get caught up on some things this weekend…the blog being one of those things!

This week’s snapshot challenge is mischief. With a bully in the house, that’s easy…although actually catching his mischief on film is tricky!

Oscar loves towels, blankets, and scarves. If there is one within his reach, he is sure to be found at least once a day, running through the house with one trailing behind him. So, he has been playing with this red scarf that is part of the kiddo’s Elvis costume. This morning he was feeling extra frisky thanks to the chilly weather, and was being extra mischievous!! So, then…this happened…

Yep, that’s what he gets from playing with a scarf! ūüėČ

Today is Piper’s one year adoptiversary! She is one of my special pup’s, who I personally requested¬†to save from the Gainseville shelter. Little did I know, she was coming to us with two broken legs! They were in the process of healing, but the shelter didn’t mention it to us. Luckily the ortho vet said she just needed time to heal. I honestly thought this was going to put a huge damper on her getting adopted…but it didn’t! I shared Piper on my personal FB page, and turns out she looked just like a dog that a friend’s parents used to have. We discussed Piper, and long story short, she had a pending application after only about 2 weeks in my home! And, the adopters only live about a mile from my parent’s house! Anywho, so today marks a special day! The day when the sweet, golden goddess Piper found her forever home!

Here’s some pictures of Piper in her forever home!


I can’t say thank you enough to her wonderful parents! It is a fabulous feeling to see Piper being loved and cared for the way she deserves. I love my foster pups & their awesome families, that is for sure!!

Happy living, Golden Goddess!!!

52 Snapshots of Life, Week 4: Dream

Sleep well, dream hard, snore loudly

…that was Symone’s motto for life! I hope she is frolicking freely somewhere, enjoying piles of never-ending food and 24 hour butt scratches!



Happy Friday, friends!

Sammy’s Search…

Friends! Sammy is still here, waiting, wishing, wondering where his family is! Adoptions for the rescue have been pretty slow. I think because of the holidays, people are traveling, etc so adoptions aren’t booming. That being said, Sammy has gotten very little interest, and I have no idea why! (Well, he’s had a couple people inquire, however they didn’t fit his needs.)


So, I thought I’d share his adorable goofy face, along with a list of what he’s looking for, while begging YOU to share this post, in hopes of finally finding his perfect match!

Sammy’s Singles Ad


I am a young stud muffin (of course, the true essence of my studliness has been removed). I am a caramel color, with golden brown eyes, with which I will look deep into your soul. I will keep any pesky beings out of your yard, by prancing around the yard in all my glory, barking when necessary (which is often)! If you like to sing, I will be happy to sing with you. You’ll learn quickly that I have a lovely howling singing voice. I am the KING of cuddling, so be sure you don’t mind sharing your couch. Seriously, I’m the full package so choose me before someone else does!!


Sammy’s Must Haves…

-another medium to large dog in the home for confidence building

-non-dominant canine friend who won’t get jealous when he¬†leans in for some smooches from his friends (human or 4-legged!)

-patient parents, who are willing to give him the time and training he needs

-squirrels to chase (but not catch)

-have multiple bed options. Sammy is a bed and couch hog! If someone is in the bed he wants, he will wander around and whine, until he gets his way or finally gives up!

If you or anyone you know is looking for a really sweet pup, please send them our way! Better yet, forward this on to everyone you know and ask them to do the same!
