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…

Uncommon cheek cuddling

Far and away the best part of my day was a rare cheek cuddle with Paisley! Our last Boston Terrier, Abby, adored absolutely all cuddling, but Paisley prefers cuddling on her own fickle terms. So this afternoon, when Paisley graced me with face snuggles, I melted! Today’s #OneGoodThing was glorious cuddling with our sweet dog! Day…
