Brianna is a 6 month old female mixed breed. She and her sister were strays and pretty scared of people. In fact, they had to be trapped and brought into rescue where the socialization began. Brianna was very timid of people and still stays back as you go toward her to pet her. Even cornered, she never shows aggression, just fear. She has a scary puppy hood as a stray and was unable to trust humans. She was on the run just trying to find food and stay alive. She easily takes treats from your hand and you can pet her. She needs someone who will take time to earn her trust. Consistent gentleness and love is the key to her heart. She just started wearing a harness and will begin leash training. Brianna loves her elevated dog bed and running after toys or her sister. She gets along great with other dogs too but hasn't been around a cat. She is a beautiful red color with a white chest and paws and has very expressive eyes. She is in a kennel with a dog house and a grassy area. She is used to going to bathroom on that grass and not on cement. Brianna is a work in progress but is sweet and healthy. She will make a great snuggle bunny someday. In fact, the progress she has made in just a month is amazing. If you would love to help Brianna learn to relax and open her heart to you, then apply for her. She is a wonderful dog who got a bad deal from birth until rescue saved her at 6 months old. Please lets find her a good home!

No paw left behind our mission!

{Please keep in mind a dog is lifetime commitment. They need attention, love and time just like we do. In addition, adding a pet to the family does cost money in the way of food, health care, training,etc. So before adopting make sure you are willing to make that kind of commitment and have the resources to do so.}

Monday Musings

Weather is tropical...high humidity with rain.  But hey I won't complain about rain as the lawn needs it and it means I don't have to water! ;)

Where to start the weekend was great.  Friday we grilled some burgers up and caught up on some shows we taped on dvr.  Followed by some live pd, watch that show and you will quickly realize just how many crazy, delinquent people exist. 

Saturday morning seemed to do a lot of laundry, and other household stuff.  But luckily the afternoon was followed by an arts and crafts festival in skippack, pa.  Where the man and I just walked around browsing some pretty cool stuff.  We had great time and weather was perfect, overall a good date!

Though evening we embarked on putting together his desk he bought for his home office.  The box arrived by special shipment as it was 177 lbs.  Needless to say the thing is solid, and came with a ton of pieces to put together.  Three hours into putting it together Saturday night the man decided he had enough for the day. 

So of course Sunday involved reconvening to put it together.  It took another 4 hours and decent amount of work but we did it, of course we had football on in the background. After putting mine together I didn't really want any part of putting together another one but some how got roped into it. ha  Sunday felt like an exhausting, long day as was going a bunch of stuff before even helping the man put the desk together. 

By night we were ready to just chill out.  It was all about BBQ slow cooker chicken. And watching some more shows on dvr with a little football mixed in.

Monday has been a whole other story.  The nephew arrived with a cold, me being the germ phobic I am felt rattled by that.  Especially after all the colds we sustained last year from the little guy.   In fact he had a cold this time last year too.  You think by now with all the technology there would be something to prevent colds or at least stop them from being so easily transmitted, but alas there is not. And so I will continue to fret. (fret is probably even putting it mildly)

The man stayed home from work because the weekend's work proved too much and he is super sore.  Pretty much you can guarantee the man will either go in late or not go in at all on a Monday if we've done a lot on the weekend. He always needs one day to just rest. He's a piece of work that's for sure! ha

I am feeling tired as haven't been getting good sleep. Think good sleep is something we all take for granted, and you only realize it when you aren't getting it.  The dizziness for some reason seems to be the biggest contributor to disrupting my sleep. You think sleeping would some how calm it but it seems to instigate it especially if I wake up in certain positions or in certain states of sleep. It really is nuts.

Lack of sleep can make you feel so cranky at times too, it's like stress in a sense it can make any little thing just annoy you. Little things that probably wouldn't annoy you in a normal situation.  Like today I read yet another political post bashing the president by a friend on facebook.  It took everything in me not to just let loose on her.  This one particular girls loves to blame Trump for everything and all I want to say to her is "sweetheart so many of the deeper issues of this country existed long before he did so sit down and shut up" But I maturely refrained myself, had a good laugh and thought to myself why bother stirring the pot.  It's not even worth it.

Honestly there are two parties to our political system, both are equally responsible for helping the country and it's people. If one party fails essentially both parties fail because the whole point is to be mature enough to work together for the better of people, to compromise and develop fair solutions.  Maybe it's time the people of our country got to vote on everything, not just for our politicians but on the real issues. Our country has become so divided we may as well just split into two countries at this point. Anyway....

That's enough of all that for now.  Need to chill out!
