Sunday Pause (Paws): For Family

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax and spend some time with family.

For this post, I have included pictures of just a few of my family members. They are photos I have taken recently while spending time with them. (Note: The photos of my parents didn’t have the greatest quality, so I did a lot of playing around with them and decided to turn them into more of “artwork” type photos. That is why they look as they do.)

My mom and I recently had the most enjoyable time going for a walk by a man-made body of water. We found a swing to sit on and we just kicked back, relaxed, and enjoyed the view while sipping on a Chai Latte from Starbucks (my favorite and I mean FAVORITE drink).

This Tuesday’s Tale: Pete & Buster

The Tale Of A Man Who Just Wanted His Dog Back

This is a story from 2014, but I have only seen it recently. It’s about a man named Pete and a dog named Buster. Sadly, when Buster was nine years old, Pete ran into financial trouble and lost his house. He knew it wasn’t good for Buster to live out on the streets, so he did what he felt was best for him.

Sunday Pause (Paws): Hello

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and take a break from the busyness of the week.

Cino wanted to start today with a little hello. (Turn up the volume)

The friendly word hello. We say hello when we answer the phone, when we meet someone, and as we pass by someone.

When you pass by someone in a hallway or on the street, do you think you should say hello? Continue reading

This Tuesday’s Tale: Jack

Today we take a look back at Jack. Jack is a little dog that was found in a dumpster by a little boy. Sadly, this happens more than you think. Honestly, how can people be so cruel?

I wrote a tale about Jack back in October. Kathy, Jack’s pet parent, recently shared some new photos of Jack. I decided to share them with you and give you a link to Jack’s tale.

Below is Jack happy to have tummy time. 🙂

Sunday Pause (Paws): Just A Rose

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the beautiful things in life such as a picture of an adorable dog holding a rose in his mouth and a good poem. I happen to have both of these for you today.

The poem is actually not mine. It is from Colin Chappell’s new book of poetry called “Just Thinking.” It’s called “Just a Rose” and in the video below you will hear Colin reading it. I love his accent! Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Take A Look Around

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and notice what’s around you.

Before I begin this post, I just wanted to mention that each one of these pictures were taken by me over this past week (except for the very last image). Some of them were taken with my phone which takes really bad pictures. They would have just been bad quality pictures if I left them alone, so I had fun playing with them and making each one look different.

“Fishy”

My niece is here visiting all the way from Norway. This made me think about taking out “fishy.”

Shortly after I adopted Cino, my niece made this fish for her and sent it in the mail all the way from Norway. Such a sweet gift!

I named it “fishy”, but find myself always saying to Cino…do you want to play with “fishy wishy?” I’m not sure why this is, but everything winds up with a “y” at the end, or a word added on that rhymes beginning in a “w”, or both. Her favorite mouse toy has become “mousey wousey.” Her felt puzzle is now “puzzle wuzzle” and her owl toy is of course “owly wowly. Continue reading
