Phoebe’s New Life Jacket

Standard

Well Phoebe’s new life jacket came in yay!!! Although I don’t think P shares my enthusiasm.

   

     

The velcro straps barely fit around her belly but everywhere else it fit perfectly. I think the medium would be too long so we are going to keep the small and hope she doesn’t gain any weight ha.

  

Phoebe also got a much needed bath today, which she <3’s but me taking pictures during her bath not so much.

Spring Fever

Standard

Spring is my favorite season besides Fall of course so I’ve been getting my yard spring ready with a little help from the puglet.

I put a pile of sticks on the patio so I wouldn't run over them with the mower and Phoebe decided to take each stick out of the pile to chew on it.

I have thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside in my lawn chair reading Game of Thrones these past few weeks. I’m on book 4 (Feast Of Crows) now and I watched all four seasons in one week so now I’m ready for season 5 to start.

I plan to surround my back patio with mosquito repelling plants such as Lavender and Rosemary. I also bought some Basil and Marigold seeds. I will probably buy a few more citronella candles and maybe a few citronella tiki torches because mosquitos are really bad in Mississippi.

I felt like Princess Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) because I had 6 birds and 2 squirrels in yard when I got home on Friday.

I felt like Princess Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) because I had 6 birds and 2 squirrels in yard when I got home on Friday.

I searched for another bird feeder today because the birds are fighting and knocking each other off the feeder but unfortunately I didn’t find one like the one I already have so I will have to keep searching.

Yesterday was Hubfest…..they have arts/crafts booths, bands and food vendors set up downtown so I went to that. I brought Phoebe with me even though I had an issue with 2 dogs snapping at her last year only to find out from a lady as we were walking that they weren’t allowing pets this year!!!! I hadn’t heard that but she said it was on the news and sure enough I saw where it said no pets in the article. I had to go all the way home to drop Phoebe off then go back out there only to see 6 dogs there so obviously they weren’t strictly enforcing it. It made me so mad! I mean my dog has every right to be at an outside event just as much as everyone else but whatever. I thought about not going back out there just for the principle of the thing but I did and I had a good time. I found Southern Pines Animal Shelter’s tent and bought a t-shirt from them but I couldn’t find Hub City Humane Society’s tent to buy a t-shirt from them 😦 Phoebe’s vet usually has their shirts at the counter so I may end up being able to buy one from them after all. I also found this really cool birdhouse so I bought one of those as well.

Afterwards I got a much needed pedicure and met up with some friends for lunch. Afterwards I caught up on some episodes of Grimm

Today I went grocery shopping and bought some new aveeno sunscreen for my face because I definitely don’t need to get sunburned this year. Then I went to Petsmart to get some dog food for Phoebe and ended up getting more than I intended to. I’m thinking about incorporating some raw food that they have in a refrigerator in the pet food aisle into Phoebe’s diet….anyone have any experience with it or suggestions?

They had some of the cutest spring collars but I had to resist purchasing them.

I walked to a few more stores in the shopping center then headed home to hang up my new birdhouse.

the new birdhouse is puglet approved!

Dog Sitting

Standard

Sorry things have been a little crazy lately so I haven’t had a chance to post anything.

Well my best friend Keely and her family went to Disney World during Spring Break and couldn’t bring Pepper so I agreed to take care of him. Pepper isn’t a big fan of Phoebe mostly because she is so hyper and he is very laid back but he became more comfortable day by day so I think he had a good time…..especially since he got to go home with a toy lol.

Pepper doesn’t play with toys except one time when he was at my house and picked up Phoebe’s gator toy. Keely tried to buy him a toy after that but he refused to play with it……well when I was babysitting him he picked up Phoebe’s mini vs dog and her favorite toy….the pig, which some of you may remember was her Valentine’s present. Keely said they were taking that pig home with them since Pepper liked it so much and I told her I would go buy him the exact same one but it’s Phoebe’s favorite as well so they couldn’t take it lol.  I went back to Petco and found the very last pig so it all worked out and Keely has sent me videos since they have been home of him playing with his new pig so that makes me very happy.

Here are some pictures of that week….

My parent’s came in the Saturday that Keely and her family came to pick up Pepper so it was nice to catch up with everyone. Keely got me an anchor necklace as well as a key chain and a Jack Skellington mug (since she knows I ❤ Nightmare Before Christmas) to thank me for keeping Pepper 🙂
