Puppy Love and Pampered Pooches

So, I’ve been trying to get back to posting on my blog.  Summer has been fun and I am so behind.  Well, here’s one reason.  See picture above.

Back in the old days, it was hard to get things done at home because I had a baby on my lap.  Can anyone relate?  Well, now the babies are grown and this furry baby has decided she needs a lap too.

She cries and cries until you pick her up.  Crazy Holly!  Love her, but how can I write with this crazy critter on my lap?  Answer:  Not very well.  🙂

Well, anyway, I’m working on things and moving this critter along.

Anyone else have crazy, furry babies who need that extra lovin’ too?

I’d love to see and hear about them.  🙂

And, yes, Holly is getting a new life and I have a new blog post coming next week.

Woo hoo!  Back on track!

XO – Nikki

It was sitting in the front yard of a neighbor and, to top it off, the car was smiling at me.  I immediately had to take a picture.  It brought back a flood of memories.
