Layla is a beautiful, one year old, 75lb female black lab. She is spayed and up to date on all of her vaccinations. She did not have the best start to her young life. She spent 20+ hours a day in a crate in her first home, but that all changed when she came into rescue and foster care. She started her training with her foster family and has made wonderful progress, but will need a family committed to continuing her training. Layla loves to play fetch and would play all day if you let her. She also loves to play tug and will give you a great arm workout if you play with her! Layla is a young and active dog and would do best with a family that likes to be active and to exercise her daily. She loves running around the backyard with her foster family, and her ideal family would have a place for her to run too. Layla is currently residing with a foster fur-sister, but she did not have any exposure to other dogs prior to coming into foster care. She would probably do best as an only dog in the home. She promises to keep you entertained with her antics and enthusiasm. Layla has learned so much in her time in foster care. She is still easily excited and would do best in a calmer home. Layla is working on appropriate greetings, aka not jumping. She has made progress, but she does have a knockdown factor. She is a champion cuddler and when Layla is ready to relax, she will snuggle on the couch with her people. Layla is looking for a calm, structured home with lots of love, exercise and training.  Please lets find her a good home!

Sophie is a Silky Terrier mix. She is confident, friendly and fun loving. From her incredible ears to the tip of her stubby little tail (which is always wagging), she is full of love. Smart, confident and funny. She is definitely an "alpha", and thinks nothing of going up to the larger dogs and barking in their face to get their attention. Sophie was rescued from a very bad situation. She had been used as a breeder, then given to some not nice people along with 4 pups. Very skinny, yet still trying to nurse her precious babies. She has filled out nicely and becoming more beautiful each day!. Her lovely hair had been cut short, and once it begins to grow, she will be groomed correctly. It still doesn't take away from how pretty she is. She loves being next to her foster mom and follows her everywhere. The other dogs in house are just amazed at her prance as she goes from room to room. She would do really well as an only dog, or with another dog that is calm. If you're looking to add a small, smart, lovable girl to your family she is the one.  Please lets find her a loving 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

The weather is humid, rainy and preparing to heat up again.  Have to admit we have been rather spoiled by all the cooler weather as of late.

Wanted to actually write yesterday but some how just didn't have a moment.  As I'm writing this can't help but think how mundane this seems compared to an old friend from college who is hiking Chamonix, Mont Blanc in France right now and posting some amazing photos of the mountain. Wondering it might have to join his crew on of these days on one of their excursions. Though I'd have to get myself in super shape to be able to do the hikes they do.  But he is truly living life to the fullest and it's inspiring to follow.  There are moments where I really miss my traveling days!
Anyway back to reality....

The man's company was preparing to move into a new office so he was home all last week and two days this week.  Out of all those days home we probably spent one day actually out doing something fun.  Pretty much thurs-sunday he spent resting on the couch watching golf. Thought football season was rough, golf is getting just as bad.  Not sure which is his bigger obsession sports or watching tv. I love to play golf and wish he would be more willing to play more together.

It's funny because I actually like sports, and watching football but the man pushes it to a whole new level where it becomes too much.  Anything of too much can feel monotonous. Think what it comes down to is I'm going to have to find a partner in crime who shares some of my other interests if I want to do fun things in the Fall. ;)

Tuesday had to go pick up a sleep study as my doctor suggested it a few months ago.  The man complains about how I'm snoring loudly these days and making weird noises in my sleep. There are times I wake up from sleep gasping for air, honestly it is a scary feeling and often after that feel tired the next day so they suspect sleep apnea. But not so sure it will show up on a tests and it doesn't seem to happen every night. Yet the test only was for two nights, and only one night came out good. The second the machine malfunctioned. So it will be interesting to see what happens.

Wednesday I had planned to go to an amusement park with my sister and her kids. Surprising since he was off, he actually wanted to go! (that's a big deal folks)   The park itself sits in the mountains of Pennsylvania and took us about 2 hours or so to get to.  We left at 9 in the morning and didn't get home until after 10.  The weather turned out a lot sunnier and hotter than expected but it was a lot of fun.  Think at one point we all felt heat beat but after a little rest and some food we all seemed good to go.

The whole crew rode rides while my nephew and I watched, walked around the park and played. He's too young to fit on anything but the small kid rides that adults can hop on with the kids.  I've never been a huge amusement ride gal guess it's because I was born with way too much adrenaline to begin with and just don't need that rush.  Besides with the dizziness the movement of rides would really aggravate and flare it up.  So me and the dman had fun watching everyone and just being silly.

Actually my sister took him on of those kids rides where they get to sit in cars and parents can go on with them.  Of course as I'm trying to take a photo of them missed the bench I went to sit on and had a rather awkward, hilarious fall.  It felt like slow mo while I tried to grab onto something to steady myself. Meanwhile a nice woman and few others got up to come to my aid.  Of course I started laughing at the sheer craziness of it all.

Thursday had to return the sleep machine.  The man and I also stopped to browse cars as his is getting old and not worth putting money into anymore. Then spent the afternoon watching my nephew as my niece ended up having to go to the doctor as she was having strong pains. She actually didn't feel all that well at the amusement park at times but really wanted to go.  The doctors surmised it was some kind of virus in her muscles or something they just recommended some tylenol.  It's amazing how many times even the so called experts just don't know what is causing something.

Friday I can't even recall at the moment couldn't have been too exciting.ha  Saturday had a bunch of stuff to do around house while the man watched his golf again.  Sunday went shopping with my mother for a little.  There was an Irish festival  I wanted to go to but the man's back was too sore to leave the couch. Think the ride threw him over the top, had a feeling he would be sore afterwards. As some of the old wooden roller coasters aren't exactly smooth rides.

Monday had a list of things to do, and also had to follow up with the cardiologist.  He keeps people waiting so you have to allot a few hours for an appointment.  Few months ago sought a second opinion and wanted to run by their suggestions with my long time cardiologist. He basically disagreed with their advice as felt the medicine they wanted to switch me too would only contribute to feeling more of the skips with a possible increase in side effects as well.  It's so hard to know what to do, or what might possibly help more than something else.

Been trying to keep to a work out schedule.  Since I had my bike tuned up been trying to ride it at least three times a week.  It's interesting as since each activity uses different muscles riding the bike again takes some getting used to, especially going up hills. Ever since my rib got injured I haven't done yoga, and really miss it. Hoping to be able to get back to it soon.  While some people might write yoga off think it definitely makes a difference and helps to relax the body as well.

Also trying really hard to not watch the news or even go on twitter too much.  Just think the news has become so one sided and biased that it's so hard to listen to.  Journalism used to be a field that was respected for their honesty and unbiased reporting but throughout the decades it seemed to lose more and more of it's respectability.  Just don't feel that all sides are represented fairly or there is any unbiased reporting of news. So why let it stress me out, it's easier to just tune it all out and find something else to hold my attention.  Anyway, whole other topic for a different day.
