Unusual massage

I went back to bed this afternoon because I was having a crap pain day. Our sweet Paisley followed me and decided to walk up the back of my legs and then balance herself on my lower back and butt. It was a strange, but delightful mini massage. I only wish it had lasted longer…

Waking up with my girl

After a fabulous L.A. getaway, I was very happy to wake up to Paisley’s kisses and warm snuggles once again. I had a great time on my trip and seeing my new sparkly turquoise pedicure brings me such joy, but I also missed my girls. As soon as Mama woke up, I shared this pic…

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…
