Adorable neighborhood watchdog

Upon my return home from the pharmacy this afternoon, this funny little face surprised me in the window. Paisley is sitting on the back of the couch, looking out the window between the two new Amaryllis stalks growing from our wax-covered bulbs. Her look of reproach makes me giggle. I love being greeted by this…

A double cuddle day

Paisley is a bed hog whose preferred cuddling style could best be described as dog butt in your face. But today I got super lucky and she graced me with two proper cuddles, this one pictured and an afternoon nap on top of me. I think she sensed my stress headache, and once she stopped…

Warmth against my back

My head has been killing me today; so after giving breakfast and meds to my girls, I went back to bed. Mama also has a terrible headache that won’t quit. Paisley has been on double duty, going back and forth between our rooms to check on us. Oftentimes when I’m under her watch, she just…

Paisley’s new pjs

It’s been very cold in our house lately. Despite many layers of warm clothing and blankets, all three of us have been shivering.

She’s got my back

A migraine triggered a Crohn’s flare for me today, leaving me mostly miserable. That is, until sweet Paisley climbed into my bed and nestled herself firmly against my back. It was just the comfort I needed. Today’s #OneGoodThing was Paisley’s big heart! Day 342 of 365. And Day 1,073 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following 365)!  1…

The day we struck gold

Today is the two-year anniversary of Paisley’s adoption. Mama and I absolutely adore her, falling more in love with each snore and waddle. We feel deeply grateful this spunky, loving girl is part of our family. Paisley celebrated with a special dog cookie and lots of cuddles! Mama and I also both got our hair…

A marathon with Margo

Our friend Margo brought her sweet dog, Mason, over today. We adore this dog; he helped us be ready to adopt Paisley after we lost Abby two years ago. Mama, Margo, and I spent the afternoon enjoying a “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” marathon and eating Chinese food. I made raspberry macarons, which were…
