This is what my life looks like lately. Isn't it a beautiful chaotic cuddly mess?

Boston grows every day, and the friendship between he and Kiki gets stronger. I hear them rough-housing in the other room while I type and my heart sighs with content.

There is alot of pee and poo, alot of dog hair and alot of vaccuuming up dog hair...trips to the vet, planning for the new apartment, visits from friends, a shower here and there to wash off bits of grass and puppy kisses, grocery shopping and cooking dinner, changing bedding, baking oatmeal cream pies, taking cautious walks watching out for big dogs and anything little pups might want to swallow, making cake bunting for Halloween and Christmas, hurrying to the post office to send off orders, trying to give equal attention to both dogs, and worrying that Boston will never stop using our home as a toilet.

Did I mention vaccuuming up dog hair? There's alot of that. Alot.

So many great things, stressful things, fun things, annoying things. Life!

I hope you are all doing well....enjoying the beauty and the chaos called 'living.'

Sending you all so much love....

P.s. Hop over to Lana Lou's lovely blog where she has featured my current Wish List!
I wonder what's on yours? 


  1. What a lovely story your photos paint! So nice to see they are becoming the best of friends. I told you they would. It's just in Cavaliers, it's bound to happen and can't be stopped, they just are a bundle of LOVE. As for dog hair....tell me about it. I vacuum everyday. Our tri-colour is much more hairy than the blenheim and I find tufts of black hair everywhere. I bought myself an ENJO mop recently and it is amazing, cuts down the hair pickup to 10 minutes instead of vacuuming for 30 minutes. ENJO is an Austrian brand so you should be able to get it over there.

    Enjoy your puppies!

  2. Absolutely the sweetest pictures!!!! So happy that Boston and Kiki are becoming good friends. And I had to laugh about the dog hair! We have a dog and I just finished vacuuming up all of her dog hair - it's everywhere!

  3. Sounds like a lot of excitement - would you have it any other way? :)
    I just have one cat and am amazed at how much hair she leaves everywhere ~
    Take care and continue to enjoy these little things everyday!
