Thankful for Wagging Tails and Sloppy Kisses

Hey, Nerdy Peeps! It’s almost time for Thanksgiving, that means it’s time to share what I’m thankful for! So, today’s post is dedicated to me awesome pups!

Hopper’s Background

Now, most of you know this guys story especially if you’re a long time fan, but if you don’t let me give you an insight.

Hopper was found at a location one night by my husband when he was picking up a load of salt water. (He was a salt water truck driver at the time). When out of nowhere he sees this little bitty 18 pound, skin, and bones, puppy. My husband being the amazing man he is, couldn’t  just leave the little guy there. A few short texts later and me going to pick the little guy up from the yard, Hopper was now ours.

Fisher’s  Background

I was following Fisher from a rescue site and was hoping he would find a home soon because I mean look at him he’s adorable. Then finally one day he did! I was so happy for him, but also bummed because I wanted to bring him home to be a part of my family. So, fast forward to a week later. I was headed out of PetSmart with some new toys for Hopper when I noticed a tan-colored bottom and pointy ears in one of the windows of this mobile adoption van. I immediately asked to see the puppy in the window. Next thing I know I’m bringing home a new puppy with ears to die for.

Now, that I have shared their backgrounds, let me share why I am thankful for these guys!

Thankful for Wagging Tails and Sloppy Kisses

H = Hopper – F = Fisher

H: He knows exactly when I need to be comforted after a long day with anxiety

F: Seriously the ears!

H: His face

F: His cuddles

H: When he goes outside and runs in circles like a racecar. It makes me laugh every time

F: His sweet kisses. He doesn’t try to attack my face with his tongue

H: His sloppy kisses. He does attack my face with his tongue

F: His love for toys.

Both: I’m thankful they were put in the right place at the right, so we could have two of the best dogs become part of our family!

Now, for all the doggy photos!

Safety for the Holidays!

Now, I know like any responsible pet parent I hope you don’t give your furbaby scraps from the table while you eat. Yes, I know they are so stinkin’ cute when they beg, but don’t do it! And if you’re dating or married, tell your significant other no! Of course, I’m a sucker for begging and I give in, but I have also done my research and I know what to give and what not to give my babies.

Anyway, the reason I am being bossy is that a lot of holiday food is not safe for your babies! Here’s an infographic created by the peeps at PuppySpot to keep your fur-kids safe during the holidays!
