    • I have had a wonderful day and so glad to hear that you are too! That’s wonderful that you will have a week of then another week off! I know you look forward to that! I left this morning to run and errand and ADT called me and told me my home alarm had gone off. By the time I got home, the police were here. We figured out that Sugar had jumped up onto my bed and set the alarm off! Thank goodness it wasn’t anything worse!

    • I do look so forward to it!! Oh wow that must have scared you…yes thank goodness it was only Sugar. Phew.

    • Gosh, I don’t blame you for looking forward to it! Yes, it was a relief that it is only Sugar but now I have to figure out how I can set my alarm when I leave and not worry about her setting it off. LOL!

    • I’m guessing it was the motion detector right? When you set the alarm you can turn that motion detector off. If your windows are armed then no worries about turning that off, if they are not you might want to consider having them armed that way you don’t have to worry about the motion detector. 🙂

    • One of your comments last night seemed kind of “cool.”

    • Ohhh 😦 so sorry about that. If it had anything to do with the break-in comments maybe it was because I didn’t want to tell you what to do but still offer advice. Sometimes I can take over a situation and say oh you should do this or that, meaning to be helpful, but then I wonder if I made the person feel bad, so I try not to offer too much advice knowing that their decisions aren’t mine to make. If it was about my vacation I was rather vague on purpose, I don’t want to give out too much info for the world to read…like when I’m leaving and returning…you never know whose reading our stuff. But I’d be happy to discuss all the details via email…xoxo You’ve become a very dear friend to me PJ…I truly love you and our friendship!! xoxo

    • I completely understand about not wanting to give out too much information on the www. It could be dangerous and I’m the same way. I also understand how you would be cautious about giving too much advice because it could come across as controlling. LOL! I thought it was sweet how Destiny ran to Sugar when she woke up. Seems like they both seek each other out when they wake up from their naps. I still have to keep Sugar from getting too overzealous with her play. I will let them keep playing until Destiny starts screaming and I know that Sugar is getting too rough.

    • Unfortunately you have to be very careful these days. It is so sweet how Destiney runs to Sugar…has she gotten any bigger yet? Yeah Sugar is still like oh goodie a toy to play with!! hehe… 🙂

    • Yes, Destiny has gotten a little bit bigger and Sugar thinks she is her real live toy! LOL! I try to play with Sugar now and she isn’t interested. She is only interested in playing with Destiny. That’s kind of sad but I’m glad they like each other.

    • Hahahaha! If I can catch her at it again, I will try and get a video of it. Except every time I pull out my phone to snap her at something cute, she changes what she is doing!

    • That would be fun to watch. You’ll have to video her before she’s doing anything funny in the hopes that she does, then if nothing happens just delete the video. One of those times you should catch her doing something.

    • I would be deleting videos all the time! Haha!

    • I understand! I have rescued so many dogs in my past that I thought this time I would get a puppy. Not sure that was a good idea. Ha!

    • Barney was a puppy went I got him, he had just been brought in with his 7 brothers and sisters. They were all hiding under these lockers, so we reached underneath without being able to see them and picked one and slid him out and that’s how I picked Barney. But I was thinking that most people don’t adopt older dogs because, like me, they want a puppy, so this time I would adopt one that was older. It does save you from going through the chewing stage…so we’ll see. 🙂

      Like

    • How sweet! The way you picked out Barney! Yes, getting an older dog has it’s rewards for sure because they are usually out of the chewing stage! I think I have adopted about 4 dogs from the Animal Shelter. I adopted two other dogs because they were abandoned in my neighborhood. Bria was one of those. But she was also a puppy at the time. I guess that is why I wanted a puppy.

    • I know I loved how I picked him out too. It was so cute all of them huddled underneath and he was of different coloring than the rest of them too. It was fun to find out which one would it be! Puppies are so adorable and irresistible!! I’ve been thinking I’d like to get a small dog too, so that I can carry him around with me like a baby. Barney got to be 60 lbs but he still loved to snuggle!

    • Yes, it is fun to carry them around with you like a baby. I have a “sling” (for dogs) that I carry Sugar around in. I’m not so sure she likes it but she tolerates it! LOL!

    • Actually, I got this when Bria was still with me and I think they have better ones now. I wish I had one of those “packs” that you put on your chest and they stay inside the pack. Something like they have for babies except their legs don’t hang out like babies do.

    • I looked on Chewy.com and they have the slings but not the front pack. I saw one in a Dog Magazine. Foster&Smith’s I think.
