Meet the newest member of our family

We found this little beauty wandering the streets of a friend's neighborhood near Christmastime.  We called into Lost Pet hotline, searched craigslist, and fidofinder for lost dog ads, etc. and no one seemed to be on the lookout.  She's got some unique markings and our vet said to be sure to ask about those should someone call, but with no microchip or collar we were doubtful anyone would be looking. 

She's was such a sweetie, but when Christmas break was over and we went back to school and work routines we discovered our new friend suffers from separation anxiety.  Could this be the reason she was out on the streets or was she just a crafty escape artist?  We hired a trainer to work with her (and us) and things are going much smoother.  We really appreciate this sweet soul coming into our family.
Can't you tell?!

Spring Beauties

South Texas has seen a lot of rain.  The blue bonnets lining the highways near my house are evidence of that rain. 

Just when you begin cursing all that rainy weather for ruining plans like getting the dogs out to jog, doing home repairs, getting kids out and active, and canceling sports practices & games, nature slaps you with a sight of something beautiful, a reminder that there is purpose for those blessed rains...your plans be damned.

So stop and take in all that beauty and if you're not finding beauty in your neck of the woods, I'm happy to share a bit of mine.  Happy Spring, y'all!
