Friday Favorite!

Our dog.
Our only child.

She is our baby girl, and she now has a backyard.
(shhh...I was a bad mom & couldn't find my camera this afternoon while she was frolicking. OOPS)

I made it through years of living, on my own, without a dog.
But, as we all know, when you grow up with animals it's hard to live without them.  

2 years ago, YB and I adopted Jovi from the HSV Humane Society.
I had convince YB to spend a gorgeous spring day playing hooky with me, and I decided that that was the day to go "window shopping" (psha, right!) for a dog...
We walked through, looking at all the cute shoe destroying puppies, then I saw her.  She looked up at me with big brown eyes, flopped her ears out, and started wagging her whip-like tail. 
"Are you my Mom?!"
The volunteer brought her into the conference room for us to meet, she ran (galloped, really), hopped up into my lap with all fours, looked up at me, and licked the bottom of my chin.

I was a gonner.
"YB, make room in the car, she's coming with us."

It's been a fun two years so far; she's still just as full of surprises. 
She got a new collar the other week (after destroying her old one).  She thinks that her collars are her "jewry"-hysterical to watch her freak out when you jingle them!

The normal look...'specially if I'm cookin' up a storm!

At her obedience graduation.  She was the only one to not scratch off her cap!!!

Anywho, that's all from this peanut gallery.

Now, go check out my 'pal Hillary over at The Other Mama!

TGIF, y'all!


  1. Awww- so cute! We had furry children for years. Now they are just dogs. But I still love them... Deep, DEEEEEP down. :) Yours is adorable!

  2. Kudos to you for adopting! Love is a four legged word!!

  3. What a cutie! Pets are wonderful. I was a dog person until a cat adopted us in high school. Now I have 2 cats. They were the center of our lives until we had children. Now they are the unfortunate victims of tail pulling and chasing!

  4. Adorable!! Dogs are so!! We just got a puggle for Christmas after a 4 year hiatus. I'd love her a lot more if she'd quit peeing in my house.

  5. I have a "furry son" as well! We treat him as he is our child LOL ;)
