I have to show love (And its NOT Love Thursday!) to a site that has become quite useful to me.
Craigslist
If you don’t know about Craigslist you should. List wanted ads for stuff you want and get really nice furniture. Find nice stuff for not a lot of money. List for FREE.
I already have an awesome couch (and someone who will deliver it!) and am looking for more stuff for my new house. Visit the link, find your city and happy shopping or selling, which ever you like!
See even boxers like Craigslist…….

As famous as we’ll ever get. See me, Coco and Grandma? Yes, we are on the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City website. I think after five years of doing the Dog-N-Jog we deserve a better picture! Maybe next year.

Well, I bet you were wondering if this a was a DOG BLOG anymore! Lots of house talk and other things. So this Love Thursday we get back to basics and what this blog is all about…….DOGS!!
And what do these doggies love most? I mean OTHER than mommy of course! Walkies!!!! Or should we say W-A-L-K-I-E. That’s right, you can’t say that word in our house without a lot of jumping and running and barking. I bring this up this week because it is 65 degrees. Perfect walkie weather, no more sad faces!
(ok so this picture is in the fall. Just pretend like its spring!!)

NEW HOUSE!! A nice new house and a landlord who has a rescue. For once I am kind of speechless. It just worked out perfectly. Inside pictures will be coming in the next week or so, be patient. house.jpg

Whatever you do……
Pray…
Send Good Vibes….
Visualize……
Whatever you do when something good needs to happen. That’s what we need this weekend. Coco and I head out house hunting this weekend. And yes…..I am most DEFINITELY taking her. The landlords will see how well-behaved she is.
Now I leave with a picture of “A” house. Not necessarily “THE” house. We just need something to focus on. So, FOCUS!!

25 days until day-light savings
34 days until spring.
Thats all we have to hold on when its like this:

Mostly Cloudy
6°F

Blistering, can’t feel your hands/paws kind of cold.
After following our blog, surely you can tell we are a spring kind of family. We live for spring. So today when snow fell on doggies backs as they went to the bathroom and mommy’s hands almost fell off while she pumped gas, we show our love to our favorite season. Spring! Oh, we are so glad you are on your way!

Ok…so in the past week our “dog blog” has strayed a bit. But stay with me this is dog-related. Here is a phone call with potential landlord today.
Lady: Hello?
Me: Hi, I’m calling about the house on “111 smith st”.
Lady: Yes?
Me: Can you tell me more about that?
Lady: Well, its 2 bedrooms 1 bath. Refrigerator, Stove and washer/dryer hooks up. It has a fenced in yard and a garage.
Me: And the ad says you allow pets?
Lady: Yes. What do you have?
Me: A boxer and a chocolate lab.
Lady: Oh, their big!!
Me: Yes, they are. They have great references though.
Lady: Well, I suppose with an extra deposit. Do they stay outside all the time.
Me: No ma’am. They are indoor dogs. They go out to go to the bathroom.
Lady: Well, that’s just not natural!!!
Me: (‘thinking’ OK……I THINK WE’RE DONE HERE!!!!)
Alright, well thank you for your time! Have a good day!
I have been looking for houses all week. Thru the Internet. Searching, calling, having beautiful intelligent conversations just like this. If you are a landlord in Kansas City and happen to be reading my blog. (ahhhh, what are the chances??) You see how much my dogs are loved. I think these guys deserve a house!!!

 UPDATED TO ADD: Another housing vent……CALL POTENTIAL RENTERS BACK!!!! I am really not wanting to buy a house yet, but sheesh, its looking more and more tempting!!

When you find that person you want to spend the rest of your life with you are honestly pretty lucky. Sometimes you spend all your life searching or thinking of  “that one lost love”. Not everyone finds love like that.  And to know that you have found that person must be an awesome feeling.
Today is a special Love Thursday because tomorrow my brother, Joe, is going to marry that special person. (that’s pretty amazing to say “my brother is getting married.” and it makes me feel old!!) Not only does Joe love Valerie but so do we. It’s pretty cool I get such an awesome sister-in-law. 🙂 I really don’t think that Joe could have found a better match.
I want to wish you two all the happiness in the world. Life is crazy. When people tell you the older you get time goes by faster….it does.  Remember to cherish every moment. Even when you drive each other crazy,  (and believe me, you will, LOL!) even then, it will be worth it.
Welcome to the family, Valerie!! We love you guys!!

Ahhh…..how ironic that Love Thursday is this day. A special day. A birthday day! My best boy’s birthday. Four years old!!! My-my!! His made-up birthday anyway. We don’t what day he was born exactly. But when I got him we knew about how old he was and just gave him a day!
And yes if you haven’t noticed by now Charlie is loved by(and loves) alot of people!
Happy Birthday Baby Boy, I am so glad I paid $150 to save you. That I had the chance to know your old owner. That he bought you, that he didn’t want you. I am truly blessed for the chance to know you and love you! Here’s to many more years of boxer love!
Love,
Mommy, Coco and Daddy
