Dog Days of Summer

This summer, while lucrative, has also been very busy.  Dogsitting has been in full swing since Memorial Day and shows no sign of stopping before Labor Day.  I’m loving the extra money (because money is fun and stuff) but the truth is, I’m glad it is nearly over.  I’ll have the occasional guest come fall and holidays, but for the most part will be done with the dog chaos until next summer.  This is what my summer has been like so far:

And the rest of the summer will be:

We’re coming down the home stretch.  Unfortunately, my camera has been under the weather and I didn’t get pictures of Cocoa (puggle,awesome except for the humping), Marley (chocolate lab. What can I say?  She was your typical lab) and Rudy (some kind of yappy Yorkie mix but mellow and sweet).   The good news is I have a few pictures of newer dogs, like Jasper (Goldendoodle, just about the sweetest and quietest dog ever):

And Chase:

But the real reason I’m telling y’all this is because this summer makes having a certain awesome puppy around, well, AWESOME.  We brought her home Sunday and we’re in love.  Bristol loves her, too. In fact, Bristol mothers her, snuggles with her and tries to carry her around the house like a mommy carries a puppy.  It’s too sweet.  Anyways, meet our newest addition, Daisy:

She’s a Border Collie that’s about twelve weeks old, sweet and sassy and totally holds her own around here, despite only having three feet.  We’ve ordered a bright pink puppy shoe for her (when she is full grown we will get her measured for a special prosthetic-like shoe) so she can be the envy of all the female canines on the block.  We’re so smitten with her. Really.

About Marj Hatzell

Marj Hatzell climbed Mount Everest, explored the Amazon and swam the English Channel. No, she didn't really, but she's the mother of two children with a variety of disabilities so SAME THING. She also likes dogs more than she likes people and enjoys speaking about herself in third person because it's all Silence of the Lambs-like.

  1. Daisy is a great name for her. Totally different from (& in this case better than) Harley (and I *like* Harley for a dog). Congrats to you, though Ginger would roll her eyes if she knew how.
