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…

Paisley’s pint-sized friend

A trip to our new chiropractor today helped my migraine pain enough that I was able to take Mama to pick up a new pair of sandals. That’s where we met this adorable toddler, 16-month-old Corinne. She and Paisley decided they were just the right size for each other, and proceeded to entertain everyone with…

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.

Insistent companion

I’ve been spending more time on the cold bathroom floor lately as my Crohn’s Disease has been flaring. I was quietly miserable in the bathroom earlier today, when suddenly Paisley forcefully pushed open the closed door and took up her role as goofy watchdog. This funny, yoga-like pose is one of Paisley’s favorites and it…

Adorable newspaper demolition

Mama was reading the newspaper this afternoon when Paisley decided a cuddle took precedence. Paisley leapt up and settled herself ON TOP of the newspaper Mama was reading. I could not stop laughing, but managed to capture this moment of Mama’s incredulity and Paisley’s look. Today’s #OneGoodThing was laughing with Mama over Paisley’s antics! Day 140 of 365.…
