As I type this Hammond is licking my left hand, Truman is laying on my right, Fiona is rubbing her body on my face and the dog is ringing her bell to go out. Here is a rare look at my life behind the computer. It’s also a completely un-photoshopped picture of me without makeup […]
Well wasn’t that fun?
alternative title: How not to spend Christmas. Normally we thing we are great pet owners. I grew up in a house with dogs. My whole family has dogs. I’ve had cats my whole life. Plus we watch a whole lot of Caesar Milan. That totally has to count for something. We’re great with animals. Right? […]
It has been a while since I updated everyone on that 4 legged creature that lives in our house. ?It is strange only having one pet, but at the same time it is utterly exhausting. ?When we picked the dog’s name we had no clue how terribly fitting it would be. ?Busy is an understatement. […]
