Christmas traditions


Christmas is a sneaky little holiday and I can’t believe it’s less than two weeks away. This is a slight problem because I realized I haven’t done anything very festive yet. One thing I do each year though is watch the movie Prancer. With Sam Elliot (aka the voice of “Beef, it’s what’s for dinner”) and a real live Prancer set in the 1980s it’s hard to beat.

Pillow hog






Someone sure loves burying herself in pillows. Meanwhile, Gin realizes she doesn’t quite fit in that tiny bed. We are back at our apartment now, but I sure do miss my sweet old girl!

Weekend in photos





On Friday we attended the Houndstooth Ball and it was wonderful. Lots of money was raised, Chick made some new friends and nearly inhaled her pupcake. Not to mention the venue, Architectural Artifacts, was lovely. The best part, though, was seeing all of the wonderful dogs who were adopted over the past year, who could have just as easily met a different fate at the city shelter.

Houndstooth Ball

Houndstooth Ball 2

For my birthday last week, Josh bought us tickets to the Houndstooth Ball, the annual holiday fundraiser and celebration hosted by One Tail at a Time. Not only do sales of the tickets go directly back to the organization, but it’s a time to celebrate all the wonderful rescues and adoptions that took place over the course of 2012. I’m so thankful that OTAT brought us to little Chick — she’s definitely the best part about our 2012 — and I can’t wait to see everyone else there tonight with their pups, celebrating the same thing.

Holiday cards

I may or may not have sent this little gem out in the mail to my closest friends and family earlier this week. Thanks, Chick, for looking so happy to be there!
