Fright Night

Newlyweds Series: Cat and Mouse

But he was the first one to initiate any kind of romantic interest. Little known fact – NavyGuy actually proposed dating a year […]

Hahahahaha

You all are just too cute. Too cute! I love that the majority of you advocated getting TWO dogs. Perhaps I failed to mention one salient detail… while these puppies are cute and adorable and capable of melting your heart with a single look – THEY DON’T COME FREE PEOPLE!! Would any of you like […]

It’s Sophie’s Choice!

The photos aren’t great quality (it’s awfully tricky to take pics of fast-moving pups), but our future puppy is amongst this group! There are three black females in the litter, so with help from the breeder, we’re going to make the final choice on Thursday. I played with all three for almost an hour today, […]
