One Year Ago Today…


On year ago today…

…a Shamrock was delivered to us.

This Shamrock:

Shamrock's first night in his forever home.

Shamrock’s first night in his forever home.

We chose to adopt him on a whim. To read more about that story, click here.

Sophie and Shamrock became fast friends…


Shamrock was pretty nervous around Rob at first. Men scare him, especially men in hats. It took at least a few months for Sham to warm up to Rob. Now they are buds. But we still think Sophie will always be Sham’s favorite. 😉 They play all the time! He’s been the perfect addition to our family.

There are so many pets waiting to be rescued from shelters, just like those where we found Shamrock and Sophie. Please consider adoption when finding your next pet.

If you think you can’t rescue a purebred or a puppy, think again. Read these facts about shelter dogs that might change what you think.

Cheers to one year with our Bugaboo!

The Love They Teach Us…


I had an idea to reveal Shamrock‘s breed this Sophie & Shamrock Saturday. Instead, I’d like to remember our dear Benny Bear. After all, he is the reason we chose Shamrock. We lost Benny just six months ago, but I think of him often. When we were on vacation in St. Augustine, I read this in a tap room:


Then, this past week, I read this post on the love that our dogs teach us. If you have a pet/fur child, you’ll know what I mean.

Nothing is better than coming home from vacation and being greeted by excited pooches who missed you so when you walk through the door.

Hoping to find The One with which to share this love? Best Friends Animal Society is offering $14 pet adoptions all Valentine’s Weekend long!

To the love that they all teach us and the unconditional love they give us…
