Head in her bowl

We ran out of dog food a few days ago, but the air quality was so terrible that I scavenged the little sample bags from our emergency preparedness kits to feed our girl. Despite continued unhealthy air quality, I could no longer put off leaving the house to buy more. Paisley was thrilled with her…

Peek-a-boo cuddles

Mama wasn’t feeling well today, so Paisley made it her personal mission to provide comfort and cheer. Our sweet blanket burrower even rushed back from our afternoon walk to resume her cuddling position. Today’s #OneGoodThing was Paisley’s peek-a-boo cuddles! Day 311 of 365. And Day 1,042 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following 365)!  1 year ago today: The…

Sweet, concerned face

It was a quiet Sunday in the Nosy Parker home, filled with self care and cold medicine and dog kisses. Paisley’s sweet, concerned face followed us around the house, checking on each of us in turn, making us laugh with her waddle. It’s almost felt like Paisley knew we’d need a little extra love today,…

Tiny glass sculpture of Paisley

After a full day seeing Burano’s colorful homes and lace making yesterday, Mama and I decided that visiting the neighboring Venetian island of Murano, famous for glass blowing, would be better left until today. We made our way to a shop called Fiore Fiore that we’d visited six years ago, where they sculpted a glass…

We’re going back!

It’s official! We’re going back to our beloved Venice, Italy! And we leave next week! Mama and I have been researching and planning for the last few weeks, but essentially we’ve been packing on faith. We didn’t have flights or an apartment secured until this past week, but we are absolutely thrilled that it’s now…

Great door trade

After a shipping fiasco with Paisley’s through-the-glass dog door, we ended up with an extra door (albeit one with some damage around the edges). Our awesome glass installer suggested we sell it, but the damaged door ended up living behind the table in our dining room for many months. Finally, I called the glass installer…

Paisley’s perfect print

After I watered the garden tonight, Paisley ran across the wet ground and left a perfect paw print. I was glad I had my phone on me to snap a picture before it dried. Paisley was not impressed. Today’s #OneGoodThing was Paisley’s perfect print. Day 195 of 365. And Day 926 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following…
