I'm using the term "leprechaun" to mean dogs dressed up in St. Patrick's Day bandanas. Actually, if you want to get technical, Kit is wearing a St. Patrick's Day bandana and Fen is wearing a Christmas bandana. Dog sized St. Patrick's Day attire was in short supply here, so a green Christmas bandana will have to do. Luckily Fen can't read, so he doesn't mind the slight. ...continue reading "Leprechaun Invasion"
I had another post planned for today (our March Pooch Perks review) but then remembered that today is a very special day! Today is the 8 year anniversary of the day that Chris and I brought Kitsune home.
We know Kitsune's birthday, it's December 26th, so normally celebrate his birthday rather than the day we brought him home. But not doing much to celebrate doesn't mean that today isn't a really special day for me. My life changed 8 years ago today. ...continue reading "Celebrating 8 Years of Kitsune"
Happy happy March!
It feels like it wasn't long ago at all that we were celebrating the winter holidays, and now we're already two months into the new year. Crazies.
This is my first post from my new computer! It took me a few days to get it set up so that I could start using it for work and to blog. After using an old hand me down desktop computer for 8 (!) years it's pretty awesome to have something a bit more up to date. ...continue reading "Happy March!"
This week's posts will likely be the last ones uploaded via my old desktop computer. I've needed a new computer for awhile now, especially since I work so much on my computer. For anyone who doesn't know already, I work from home. My computer has been crashing a lot. It's something I might have been able to fix by reformatting it, but I've been really wanting a laptop for awhile now. My birthday is coming up in March, so for an early birthday present Chris bought me a new laptop! ...continue reading "New Computer"
I feel like lately I may be giving the false impression that Kit has turned into a lazy old man. He turned 8 last month, and I know that recently I've mentioned his arthritis. That coupled with the fact that a majority of the pictures I've posted of him lately are just of him laying down relaxing, I can see why people might assume that he's left his hyper, playful days behind him. ...continue reading "Kit’s Still Got It"
Happy 2016! I hope everyone had a fun and safe new year's eve, and that your 2017 is off to an awesome start. The pack and I had a rather mellow new year's eve this year. The dogs' dad and I stayed home and spent a majority of our night snuggled up with the dogs on the couch. We made it past midnight without falling asleep, at least, although I can't say the same for Kit and Fen. ...continue reading "2016: Our Year in Review"
The amazing Mr.Kitsune is our Yuletide puppy. He was born very early in the morning on December 26th, 2008. Had he been born a few hours earlier, his birthday would have been on Christmas. I've always liked that his birthday is the day after, though. Christmas is fun, but it's always a bit sad when it's over. Being able to look forward to celebrating Kit's birthday the day after softens the blow of having to wait another 365 days before Santa visits again. ...continue reading "Happy 8th Birthday, Kitsune"
My fiance and I celebrate Yule rather than the more common Christmas. I don't want to give you all a history lesson here, but many of the traditions commonly associated with Christmas actually have their roots in ancient Nordic Yule celebrations. To most people, our Yuletide celebrations probably don't seem all that different then your average Christmas. I think one of the biggest differences is that instead of just being one day, Yule each year starts on the first day of winter and lasts 12 days - until the new year! ...continue reading "Happy Yule!"
