This is the first year I’ve been a gisher, and I’m sad to say it looks like this year is the last year this awesome event is happening. For those of you who don’t know, GISHWHES stands for The Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen. GISHWHES is more than just your typical … Continue reading My 2017 GISHWHES Experience
I normally wouldn't use my blog for something like this, but it's for a good cause. Please check out the link below, and help out if you can. I think this is a really cool cause. Dancescape Regardless, thanks for reading and it'll be back to your normally scheduled programming soon.
Just like it does to everyone else; life occasionally jerks the steering wheel of a passing bus and runs me the heck over. Sometimes I’m aware enough to leap aside into a puddle creating a much smaller mess than life had planned, but most of the time life succeeds in creating a bloody spectacle that … Continue reading Let Life Happen or Make it Happen?
Today’s blog doesn’t relate to writing or dogs at all. Today’s blog is about Chester Bennington, lead singer of Linkin Park, a band that got me through so many dark hopeless nights that I could never put their impact on me into words. He passed away yesterday 7/20/2017 from an apparent suicide. I'm still processing … Continue reading Chester Bennington… How to Put This into Words
Saturday I was a bundle of nerves as I dressed in my only pair of blue jeans (I hate jeans) and pulled my nonslip sneakers out of the closet (I also hate shoes.) It was volunteer orientation at my local humane society, and I was ready to help out. Unfortunately it was a busy day … Continue reading My First Day Volunteering at my Animal Shelter

I hope that within the next month I can give it another go, but in the meantime I’ve been working with Rufus and spending time with family. My in-laws have a pair of large dogs, and are physically unable to do … Continue reading Volunteering
The last few days have been eventful for Rufus. Friday started off great when he realized we weren’t leaving after his morning potty, and got even better when he went for a ride with my hubby and me. He was expecting an adventure. When we arrived at the vet’s office he was still happy and … Continue reading Rufus’ Roller-Coaster
Tomorrow Rufus gets his first vet visit since he got fixed a year ago. I know, I know, I should be taking him to the vet regularly just to say hi and get treats so he doesn’t hate them, but they’re only open when I’m at work so that doesn’t happen. His last trip to … Continue reading Rufus’ Upcoming Checkup
Just because I can't get enough of this dog sometimes here's a funny picture.... I'm debating adopting a friend for him, I think we're ready... Now to just find one the hubby loves, it may take a while to find the perfect fit with our eclectic family.
Last Halloween we gave Rufus his own pumpkin. He omnomed it for days, thank goodness pumpkin is good for dogs. Only, this spring I noticed a strange new weed in my yard that looked similar to the kudzu attacking my fence. I mowed it down a few times, but my yard keeping skills have gone … Continue reading Rufus’ Pumpkin Patch
