It is Wednesday! Time to meet an adoptable dog from Red Collar Rescue. I have to tell you...I love this guy. You'll see...

Meet Wassail!! it my turn now?

It is?  Okay...

HEEELLLOOO there!!  I am Wassail and I am a very busy boy!  I am always working on a project.  There is a whole lot of world out there to explore, so we don't have time to waste!!

I am living in a kennel right now and I am learning a lot from my trainer there.  When they need a good sit in that place...they come to me.  I can show you the best sit ever!  I am working hard learning all my manners so I'd be a great addition to your house if you decide you want to share it with me.

You wouldn't be sorry if you did.  I love to play!!!  And even when you don't feel like playing with me, I can entertain you because I can play all on my own!!!  I get very excited with stuffed toys and I will toss them around and fetch them.  I also toss them up, up, up...

And then I catch them.  Gosh, I just love to play.  It is probably the thing that keeps me busiest.  I love those stuffed toys.  One of the volunteers says that I love them to pieces!!  I am not sure what that means, but sometimes the stuffing comes right out of mine.  I swear I don't know how that happens.  It's weird. 

I am about two years old and around 45 pounds.  I am a slim athletic guy and I would love to run or walk with you.  I promise to be a fabulously loyal life long friend!!

The one thing I'd like most is to have a human to call my own.  You want to meet me, don't you???

I don't know how you couldn't want to meet this love.  Look at those eyes!!!  You can email Red Collar Rescue for more information and to arrange a meeting at  I know Wassail would be happy to meet you!

Suzie Q

**PUPDATE!  Suzie Q has been adopted!**

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 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

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!
