A few weeks ago we attended the 2015 BlogPaws conference in Nashville, TN. This was my second BlogPaws conference, but Delia and Chewy’s first. Flat Delia went to the 2013 conference, but it was much more fun with the real Delia! This trip was Delia’s and Chewy’s first long road trip and hotel stay. They did great! They mastered the elevators and knew how to find our room by the first night. Our room had a balcony and they enjoyed {Read More}

Delia’s Paw Print Tattoo

I finally did it! Getting a tattoo of Delia’s paw print has been a goal of mine since she joined our family. A few weeks ago a friend and I went to Self Inflicted Studio in St. Louis and the amazing Zack “Panda” Donahue imprinted my baby girl’s paw onto my wrist. He took the photocopy of Delia’s paw print and duplicated it amazingly. I got her print by placing her paw on an ink pad (I only had pink ink handy), {Read More}

52 Snapshots of Life Week 2: MUSIC

  This week’s theme for the 52 Snapshots of Life photo challenge is: Music.   Dancey Delia Delia and I have the same taste in music. I discovered this shortly after I adopted her. As we were driving home from work I noticed her “dancing” in the back seat. When she gets excited she moves her front feet up and down, then stands on her back legs and wiggles her bottom, which looks like she’s dancing. She’ll do this for {Read More}

Delia’s First Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze Adventure

Delia went on her first pumpkin patch and corn maze adventure. She is always happy to go on adventures, but the fact that her young cousin was going along excited her even more. As we waited for the hay ride to the pumpkin patch, Delia checked out the scenery. This one is a little bit too big. We finally made it to the pumpkin patch. “There are are pumpkins as far as I can see, Mom.” “I know I saw {Read More}
