We recently did something that from the outside probably seemed rather rash to most people. We woke up one day with no immediate plans to get a puppy and the next day we had added a new puppy to our family. While it was sudden and unexpected it was not exactly unplanned. It was less rash from inside our little bubble than it may seem for anyone seeing our updates on social… Read More
If you told me that my adventure would begin with a 6+ hr drive each way to meet two dogs and possibly, just possibly adopt them if all went well, I would never have believed you. But that was what we did and that is how Josie came into our lives. It was one of the best days of my life. Josie fit right into our home, our heart, and our lives…. Read More

Now we had to take Little Kira to the vet… Read More

When your wife has a huge heart you end up babysitting someone’s five bottle feeding foster puppies so that they can go to a wedding. So I took advantage of an opportunity to get some adorable photographs. It is hard to take a photo of these tiny puppies that isn’t cute. Adorable subjects make my job easy.
I was able to get outside and take a few photographs of our new foster dog Sammy. I also found the below about why we rescue dogs. I didn’t write it and there was no citation to it.
Josie decided to photobomb the mini portrait photo shoot I was having with Little Kira in our yard. I called Kira towards me because I wanted to get some photos of her in motion and Josie decided she would join in on the fun.
