Suzie Q

It's Wednesday!!  Time to meet a precious adoptable dog!

Hi! Hello!!! HEY...DOWN HERE!!

I’m Suzie Q and I might be small, but I have a huge heart and I am ready to be your lap dog. I won’t lie; I have had it pretty rough. My hero found me in her neighborhood, but not before I wandered out into a busy street. I was so scared all I could do was sit there frozen until she called to me.

She took me to the vet and now I am flea free, spayed, and getting back to a healthy weight. I gotta tell you this not living on the street thing is really pretty awesome. I don’t know how I got so lucky. My foster mom is teaching me all the manners I need to be really great at living in a house. I already know how to sit, I’m crate trained, AND potty trained. Cool, right?

I love the treats, so I am super easy to train. If all of that isn’t enough for you, my foster mom says that I don’t ever play with or chew on things that aren’t mine. Isn’t that great? I am a good girl! I am also very gentle, quiet, and young (between 1 and 2 years old). I get along great with other dogs and cats; to me it’s the more the merrier. Don’t get me started on snuggling. Sometimes my foster mom lets me snuggle her in the bed and even share the quilt. That’s the best.

If you are looking for a little one full of life and love, I’m your girl!

How can you resist that face?  They do say the best things come in small packages...and this little girl is awesome.  If you would be interested in meeting Suzie Q you can email info@redcollar.org for more information.

Back to Reality - Vacation Recap

The husband and I spent last week in Dauphin Island, Alabama.  What a gorgeous place!

We had nothing on our agenda besides relaxing.  It was a much needed break.

Sammy and Bauer made the trip with us and they loved being beach bums.

Bauer and Sammy being bums.

This was Bauer's first road trip with us and he did great!  On the way to the beach he did a little whining in the car, I think he wasn't sure why we were in the car so long.  As long as I reached out and pet him he'd settle right back down and sleep.  On the way home he was quiet and cozy the whole way.  He's a good boy.

He and Sammy did some good car snuggling.

While we were on vacation the husband and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary (and the 7th anniversary of the day the he proposed on an Alabama beach).  Romantical!

I got a little blue box containing a beautiful necklace with a W on it...love.

Good work husband.  You are too good to me.

In the middle of the week my sister, brother-in-law, and nieces joined us for beach fun.


Look how gorgeous my girls are!  My sister had the great idea to hire a photographer to get some pictures of all of us on the beach.  Obviously I took some pictures while this was happening too.

And a few selfies.


Bauer loved all the snuggles from his cousins who adore him.

Our boy is definitely living the good life now.

This was our first time to stay on Dauphin Island and it was wonderful.  The town is a very lazy beach town and the beach was not at all crowded.  We rented a house from Boardwalk Realty and they are fantastic! They really take care of their renters and make it super easy to check in and out. Our house was right on the water and it was very reasonably priced for a week at the beach in the middle of summer.  We will definitely go back!  In fact, can I go now?


We made many trips to Skinner's Seafood to pick up fresh seafood to cook.  They had wonderful freshly caught seafood and it was all delicious!  If you are ever on the island and want to cook some fresh seafood you didn't catch yourself, go see them and they will hook you up.  Lol...hook you up.

I hope your week was half as fun and relaxing as mine!

It is Wednesday!  Meet Dolce...

Hey! I’m Dolce. I sure wish you were here right now because I’d give you a big old kiss! That’s one of my very favorite things to do.

I think that’s why they call me Dolce...that’s means sweet ya know. I got rescued from the Harris County Shelter by some wonderful people who think I deserve a forever home.

They asked me to introduce myself to you in case you might be looking for a love bug. So here goes! 

I’m a gorgeous (you know that, you’ve seen the pictures) young girl and I am a very good doggie. I know how to sit and shake. Truth be told, I kinda like to hold paws. I know you have hands and I have paws, so we can call it holding hands if you want. 

I don’t mean to brag, but I am also crate and potty trained. And I love to play. Playing is pawsome. If that’s not enough, I would be a good exercise partner, even if you do yoga.

I could be a great yoga dog because I love to do the stretching. I will lie down sometimes with my legs stretched out straight behind me. 


And don’t even get me started on how awesome my downward facing dog is. I totally rock that pose.

I’d like nothing more than a great forever home, so if you are looking for a sweet pup, look no further! My name does say it all!

Indeed it does.  This girl is an angel.  If you would like to meet Dolce you can arrange that by emailing info@redcollar.org.

And don't forget Red Collar Rescue has adoption events twice a month at the PetSmart in the Heights (1907 Taylor St.).  The next event is Saturday, July 12 from 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm.  You can get updates about those events and see all the pawsome RCR dogs by joining their mailing list (which also contains great advice and training tips) or by showing them some Facebook love.
