Tank never wants to stop playing and
occasionally P needs a break so I sit
her on the bar stool.

I had the best weekend with family, good friends and good food. It’s definitely going to be hard to go back to work tomorrow…and start a diet.

Keely’s Bday Weekend

Standard

So the phoebster and I packed up to head to Jackson Friday to go see my bestie Keely for the weekend. IMG_4867.JPGIMG_4870.JPGIMG_4866.JPGIMG_4864.JPGIMG_4870-0.JPG
Phoebe has to sniff each bag to make sure it’s up to par
IMG_4876.JPGIMG_4875.JPG
And every book or magazine.

Will cooked steaks and baked potatoes then we went to their friend’s house where we met shortcake a French Bulldog.

Isn’t she adorable?!

Saturday we went to this Greek place to celebrate Keely’s bday.

I couldn’t let the birthday girl do bad all by herself so I ordered a piece of turtle cheesecake as well.

Then we went back to Keely and Will’s house to drink birthday champagne and relax.

Will kept joking that he was going to get his own dog bc Pepper stays by Keely while Phoebe stays by me. Keely and I left to pick up dinner and Will told us he finally got the dogs to sit with him.

IMG_4958.JPG

IMG_4960.JPG
Poor pitiful abandoned babies.

I finally got to try this Wild Blue Lager that Keely and Will have been telling me about and it is delicious!!!! I went on the website to find out where to get it and I picked some up today so I can’t wait to get off work to try it.

Phoebe and I left Tuesday morning and Phoebe wasn’t a happy camper.

IMG_4978.JPG

Tuesday is a pretty rough day for me since it’s the anniversary of my best friend’s murder. I take the day off every year since it’s the only day I allow myself to break down.

Well I made the mistake of trying to get some holiday shopping done…I went to Petsmart to try to find these holiday pj’s for P to wear in our holiday pic with no such luck (I ended up just ordering pug cards). Then I went to Books-A-Million to get a gift card and coffee. The guy put too much whipped cream so the lid wouldn’t shut so as I was fighting with the lid it spilled all over me, which was my cue to leave as my anxiety level was already high.

One of my best friend’s favorite things was Jaegermeister so I always buy a small bottle and take a couple of shots for him, which is exactly what I did as soon as I got home.

Thursday was our office Thanksgiving Party.

I definitely ate too much! I’ve got to get back on my diet….after Thanksgiving lol.

Wacky Wednesday

Standard

Well my morning started off to a good start…. A man stopped by my office for help and judging by all the pug stuff on my desk, he asked if I had one. I told him yes I did and showed him the picture of Phoebe that is on my desk and he said he had a 10 yr old black pug so we talked about our pugs for awhile until he left.

Then my day started to suck but it’s finally over so I get to come home to this face 🙂IMG_4843.JPG

Someone got a little excited about the colder weather and decided to jump all over the couch!

IMG_4846.JPG

IMG_4845.JPG

Then she decided she was over it and burrowed under the blankets.

IMG_4847.JPG

IMG_4850.JPG

I really wish I could upload videos on this blog bc I would post this video of P tapping her foot but I guess just the picture of her will have to suffice.

IMG_4855.JPG

Petco emailed me about doing a clay paw print this weekend but we will be out of town at my best friend Keely’s for her birthday. I told her we should take Phoebe and Pepper so we shall see.

Happy Veteran’s Day!

Standard

I’m so thankful for all the men and women who have served and are currently serving in the military.

I had the day off so I took it upon myself to run errands, get some holiday shopping and clean my house.

IMG_4817.JPG
Phoebe wasn’t happy about being left behind while I ran errands.

IMG_4820.JPG
The stuff on the left is for Tank (my brother’s pit bull) and the stuff on the right is Phoebe’s.

IMG_4819.JPG
Sorry Phoebe you’ll have to wait until December.

P was M.I.A during most of the cleaning process.

But she managed to fit in a little bit of supervising.

IMG_4833.JPG

Then she took an ice cube break.

IMG_4809.JPG

IMG_4810.JPG

All of the playing and supervising was extremely hard work as you can see so of course naps were in order.

As you can see Phoebe and I enjoyed vegging out on the couch watching Netflix all weekend.

This Is Halloween

Standard

Phoebe went for her annual exam and her vet said she’s very healthy. He said she needs to lose 3lbs and they sent us home with some ear flush bc she has a little wax in her ears. I have to put the flush in her ears daily for a week then 1-2 times a week after that. Let me just say that Phoebe is not a fan of the ear flush….at all!

I had a lot of trick or treaters….a few were terrified of my costume but most people really liked it. I was told again that my house is their favorite house in the neighborhood, which makes me extremely happy….so Halloween was definitely a success. I had a few people over for a costume party and Phoebe was really excited to show off her Halloween dress….ha she spent most of her time trying to get the dress off and harassing her cousin Pepper.
