It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Chaos…

December 8th

Nelson and Voo

We are busy making our lists and checking them twice. Literally. There are so many lists this time of year. My current lunch-break list includes “find Christmas jammies, get priority boxes from post office, pick up more rice, buy flowers.”

It is a chaotic, joyful time when I can’t post what I’m making, or I’ll ruin the surprise. So, how about another photo of adorable Nelson?

Nelson and Voo

I never thought a creature whose breath smells like sewage and seems to delight in farting on me, could grab my heart the way this muppet has.

(Thanks to Uncle Sagar for these recent photos. That gorgeous Bernese is his dog, Voo.)

Happy holiday prep, all!

xo,

Happy birthday WNM!

June 15th

Willie Nelson Mandela celebrates his four year adoption this week, and therefore his sixth birthday.

He continues his reign as the best dog ever:

Even his namesake agrees.

Happy birthday, buddy! Here is to the next great six years of adventures together.

Nelson in Hats

Because sometimes it is the little things that make me crack up:

The last two are to prove it isn’t all torture. He occasionally gets walks and belly rubs too.

Home from Britney. Recovering. Let me distract you with funny photos of a dog who is so happy to be in a backyard.

Easters

Happy Easter!

Yep, I’m using this photo again because it is so darn cute. WNM and I wish you and yours the best, this holiday weekend!

Happy Easters, friends. (And Passovers, and just general Sunday-funday for everyone else!)

Attention Seeking Behavior. Obviously, he’s my son.

January 9th

January 2014

Mr. Willie Nelson Mandela learned a new, terrifying trick last week. Ten minutes into an otherwise routine hike, he urinated blood. Ten minutes later, I am carrying him, hyperventilating and screaming into my cell phone with the vet’s office. Four hours, one x-ray, one ultrasound and several other tests later… it was determined he is fine. No need for alarm. He’ll be fine. Here, take home this expensive GI dog food and give him some pro-biotics.

I wanted to kiss the vet on the lips, and shake her at the same time. Dogs don’t just occasionally pee blood, right? Here is to hoping Mr. WNM has found the latest way of getting my full attention, and it is nothing more. He is acting otherwise perfectly normal, and went on an 8 mile hike yesterday with no problems.

So, paws crossed.

In other news, we have officially reached Smug Season in Phoenix:

January 2014

The weather couldn’t be more perfect for morning, mid-day or evening hiking. It is simply beautiful to live here right now, and I feel very lucky. For those still suffering from polar vortex snow and ice madness, I’m envious of your fireplace reading and cuddle time. It’s just like the movies, right?

{Feel free to taunt me come, oh, July when this same view comes with heat stroke and premature aging.}

And yes, I did select a cactus photo that looks like it is flipping the bird. Because: funny.

Holiday Paws

December 4th

We spent some time with some very cute doggies during the holiday. May I present Voo:

Thanksgiving

He is all puppy. You are wise not to be fooled by that adorable smile. He is trying his hardest to shed those baby teeth and will shred your hands, if you allow him.

Thanksgiving

I think we may need another dog. I mean, are you kidding me with this cuteness? And while I want something giant and cuddly like this Voo-bear, D would prefer something smaller. Think, tea cup:

Thanksgiving

Oh, who am I kidding? I love this little Henry. Plus, I think I could sneak something this small to work in my purse…
