TayloRx

Okay okay… I gotta take a quick minute and share my friend Taylor’s music video. She is one of the sweetest and smartest people I know (graduated in the top of our pharmacy class!)… she’s also beautiful and super talented and following her dreams in the music world. She just came out with her first music video. Check it out: Find more about Taylor here. So they packed up our house today! We’ll be living in a sea of boxes until next week when we’ll be living very minimally :/ The pups went to doggie daycare today while the packing guys were here. When we picked them up, they were separated from all the other dogs. The girl working said Zoe was a little grumpy with a few of the dogs. She said that she seems to choose the older, overweight dogs to be friends with and is grumpy with the rest of them. lol oh dear… my sweet little baby. I’m just crossing my fingers that she gets along with all of her new puppy …

Not funny!!!

So I got an email from United Blood Services the other day saying my blood type is currently in high demand. They probably say that to everyone, but I decided to take it as a sign, and went on to make an appointment. When I first moved to Wyoming, I started giving blood on a regular basis. They have a great facility here and they make it super easy to schedule your appointment, go in, and get on your way (with cookies!). Then I started selling my plasma (for a short time) – also a nice facility in the area – but that just wasn’t the same. Then after going to Belize, I had to put it all on hold for a while – it’s one of those travel areas where once you get back they make you wait a year in case you are harboring something in your blood. I’m so glad to get back to it though! I signed up to give whole blood but they needed plasma most, so that’s what I gave today. Give me a …

Pup Vest Sighting

I always get excited when I see BDAR pups in the vests that I’ve made. Here’s a picture from an adoption drive that I stole from Facebook the other day:  Pretty sure this sweet baby has already been adopted, but you can see all the other awesome adoptable BDAR pups here. Here’s what I’ve made so far… let me know if you have any suggestions for new ones. It’s almost about time to make another batch :) And if anyone ever uses my tutorial for adopt-me vests, please send pictures! I would love love love to see them! Adopt Me Vests – Round One plus a rough tutorial Adopt Me Vests – Round Two Donation Dog Vests Until next time,

Throwback Thursday: Mouse Edition

It’s been confirmed. We have a mouse. Or mice… not really sure yet. How do I know? Well… that answer is three-fold. For #1 I give you Zoe the hunter: She’s not very good at it – but she tries. And yes, on a side note, if you need any kind of electronic cord, just ask me. I have them all. These were all stacked in that closet; it’s no wonder the little guy thought it would be a decent place to hide. #2. Found a little pile of torn up yarn. And it wasn’t torn up like the puppies tear up yarn sometimes. It was in little pieces made into a nice little mouse bed. :/ #3. Yesterday morning, I put my foot in my boot only to find there was already something in it. Shook it out only to have a bunch of tiny pieces of dog food fly all over. Needless to say, Finn was excited… me, not so much. This brought me back to the last time I had a mouse experience… …

Camping With Pups & Lessons Learned

For my birthday this year, we went camping out at Curt Gowdy State Park. I really love that place! We’ve been accumulating camping gear for a while now, but haven’t actually made a trek until now. So it was our first experience camping together AND our first time camping with the pups. Lesson learned #1 – If you’re going to camp in Wyoming, where strong wind is the most common type of weather… make sure you don’t forget the tent stakes! Luckily, we weren’t too far out (that’s why we chose Curt Gowdy for our first trip… not too far from home if we needed anything or had any puppy emergencies)… so I ran home to get the stakes while Danny placed heavy objects on the tent to keep it from flying away and sat with the pups (and got sunburned). As soon as we started setting up… all Finn wanted to do was help… Zoe not so much. She was content sunbathing in the grass :)    Lesson learned #2 – pups WILL get themselves tangled …
