Harder Then I Thought


I have some sad news today friends.

My sweet little Beau got adopted.

I got the call on Monday while I was driving into work.  Florida Little Dog Rescue said they had an interested applicant.  A 23 year old grad student.  It was then up to me to get in touch with her and set up a meet and greet.  I had to try so hard to hold back the tears that had started to form behind my eyes.

Let me tell you, WORST FEELING EVER!

When I got to work I pretty much bawled for the first 30 minutes.  
I really did not want to give up my sweet puppy.

Then I had to remind myself that this was always just temporary situation.  Because financially it would not be smart to have a dog.   And I know that.  
But it didn't make it any harder knowing that he would be leaving me.

So yesterday I gave the girl a call and we set up to meet at my apartment at 3 that afternoon.  Worst part was, if she liked him and had the money to adopt him, she could take him right from the meet and greet.

And of course she loved him.  He really seemed to like her too, although throughout the meeting he would keep coming back to me.

But I know she is going to take good care of him and that he'll be happy.

That was the last foster dog I will ever have.  I got way too attached and have no desire to go through that again.  

The next pet I have (which will most likely be a cat) is going to be mine.

I snapped a few picture on our last afternoon together.  



 
Our very last picture together!



Have fun with your new momma Beau!

A Little Funny For Your Monday

Well it's Monday.
(Actually it's Friday! woo hoo!)

I get spend my days off going shoe shopping for my cousin's bridesmaid dress.
Anyone know where I can find a cute, inexpensive pair of of Grey heals?
I've found some Nina's that I love but they're like 80 bucks. 
But if I can't find any others, those will be the ones.


Alrighty so on Saturday night my roommate Will, his girlfriend, and I watched some pretty hilarious videos via everyone favorite video site.  

First up is actually a commercial, that cracks me up EVERY TIME I see it!

Then we have the most awkward moment on Wheel of Fortune EVER.
Seriously, this guy should never show his face in public again.




And finally the funniest moment on Family Feud I've ever seen.


Hope those made your Monday a little brighter! :)

Have a great day friends!

Ok so it's time for High Five for Friday with Lauren!
 

Photobucket



one.
I've been waiting MONTHS for this book to come out and it finally did on the 18th!
Needless to say, there isn't much else I've been doing other than reading.
Nerd alert! :)


two.
Last night we had a get together at my friend Jordan's house.
We all ate junk food and watched every show that had an episode where they go to Disney World.
Said shows included: Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Boy Meets World, Roseanne, and Full House


three.
I realized this week that I have one full week left before I get to go home again! :)
My cousin is getting married!
(This is my 4th wedding in the last year.  And I'm in this one too.)
That's a lot of weddings.


four.
I've become one of those people who has a million pictures of their furbaby in their phone.
This cannot be a comfortable way to lay.
But he's so cute!




five.
This weekend I'm decorating the apartment for Fall AND Halloween.
You know since it'll be October in two weeks.
Weird.


Hope y'all all had a great week and have an even better weekend!

Till Monday!

Me, Myself and I Round III

I missed the last round of the Me, Myself and I link up party.

But not this week! 

1) When you're feeling down, what do you do to pick yourself up?
Generally a trip to Barnes and Noble and/or Target will do the trick.  A new book or a new...petty much anything from Target is an instant pick me up!

2)  If you had to live in a different time period which would you prefer?
That is an easy one.  I fully believe that I was born in the wrong era.  Like there is no doubt in my mind that I should have been born in either the 1930s and 1940s OR in Henry VIII's London in the 1500s.  Now there is a stipulations on that.  I would have had to been born in the upper class.  I could also have  been born in Queen Victoria's England.  Basically any period with handsome lords! :)

3)  What is the most creative Halloween costume you've ever worn?
It would probably have to have been my costume last year.  A group of my friends and I bought T-shirts that said, "Perkis Power."  Now if you recognize that then yay you.  If not then we can't be friends.  Just kididng. But seriously, google it.  Best Movie EVER! And totally quotable.

4)  Five weird things about you we wouldn't know without being told?
- I hate, loathe, and despise crickets.
- I brush my teeth in the shower.
- I can drink coffee any time of day.  Caffeine doesn't keep me awake or anything.
- Most of the time I have to have total darkness when I fall asleep.
Except when I'm laying on the couch.

5)  What would you tell your 16-year-old self?
You're life may not turn out how you think it will.
But it's gonna be pretty great anyway! :)


Can't wait to read some of the other answers!
Have a happy Tuesday!

Having a Furbaby

I've had sweet little Beau for about 3 weeks now.

And let me tell you, we've had our ups and downs.  Def more ups than downs but y'all, having a furbaby is HARD!

Now remember, I'm just Beau's foster mom.  All I have to provide is his food and a loving environment.   Which I am more than happy to do.  

But I think I've figured out that I'm so not ready for a furbaby yet.

I've made a little pros and cons list.  To help me decide whether I want to keep him or not.
Here is is.

PROS:

- He's the cutest little pup in the world. 

-I love having something to come home too.  He is always SO excited to see me no matter what.

- He's a great playmate (especially now that he actually plays with me rather than run away).

- He's a good cuddler.

- He loves me unconditionally.  

- He doesn't  bark constantly, he loves people, and gets along with other dogs.

-My roommates have been AMAZING and have really helped out a lot with him.  Seriously without them I don't know what I would do.  

CONS:

-I'm constantly worried that he's going to pee/poo in the house. 
(We've had a few accidents here and there, but for the most part he's trained not to it.)

- I feel bad anytime I leave the house and leave him in his crate.  Makes me not want to go out and do things with friends because I feel like I should be home with him.

- My work schedule isn't very consistent.  So some days I go in late and others early. Thus making it hard to keep him on a schedule.

- He wakes up every 2-3 hours in the middle of the night and has to be taken outside right then otherwise he pees.  Therefore I haven't had straight nights sleep in 3 weeks.


I know these are all things that can be worked out.  I know that he is better off with me then at the rescue and certainly better than where he came from before that.  
It's just so hard!  I love this little guy to death.  He has def made my life a little brighter since all that change that came about.
But I just don't know if I'm ready to make a full commitment to a furbaby yet. 
I know financially I cannot afford to adopt him.  If I had someone else who had equal responsibility for him (physically and financially) then it might be different.  But that's not the case.

So I will love him, take care of him, train him, and spoil him rotten until a family comes along to adopt him who will do all those same things.  And yes when someone finally does adopt him, I'll cry like a baby.  But I know he'll be better off and happy when that day comes. 

Now here are some recent pictures of my cute little guy!


"Pet me, mom! Pet ME!"


This was 10 minutes before I had to leave for work. 
I think it's his way of saying I should have stayed home!



Blogging and cuddling this morning.
Gah he's cute!


Have a great Monday! :)

Sometimes and Always

Sometimes: I wish I was still in school because the first day of school is the best.
Always:  I'm glad I don't have homework anymore.


Sometimes: I'm jealous of my teacher friends and all their teacher fun and even their stress!
Always:  I'm still jealous but my job at Disney makes it better.


Sometimes: I get mad when Beau has little accidents in the apartment.
Always: I remember he's a rescue pup who's never had a real owner and he's still learning.


Sometimes: I shop online.
Always: I NEVER buy anything cuz I'm scared the clothes won't fit.
(And I forget that I can always send it back.)
(This is my favorite site to browse!)

Sometimes:  Time seems like it's flying by.
Always: It is.  It's SEPTEMBER PEOPLE! 


Sometimes: I make a list of things I need to get done on my 2 days off.
Always:  I use one of the to do absolutely nothing at all.
Like today! 

Have a great Tuesday!

I'm a Foster Mom!!!

My life encountered another HUGE change on Wednesday night y'all!
Yep, you read right.  I became a foster mom.
To this sweet little PUPPY!


This was a completely spontaneous and unexpected thing.
See my friend Jordan had decided she wanted foster a dog to see if she was ready to adopt a little dog of her own.
A few of our friends had found rescue dogs through the Florida Little Dog Rescue.
(click to read more about them)  
Basically they take in dogs from all over Florida who end of in shelters (some of them kill shelters), get them healthy and then find good homes for them.
They are a non-profit organization and don't receive any help from the government.
They are really doing a great thing!
And if you're interested in adopting a rescue dogs they have some great ones! 
Anyway, Jordan asked me to come along with her to pick up her new pup.
Off we went.


When we got to house we were greeted by a ton of dogs.
They brought out Jordan's, an 8 year old yorkie named Augusta (she may or may have renamed her Gretchen).
While she was showing us around, that cute little face in the picture caught my eye.
He was at the back of the group trying his very hardest to get to me but just couldn't seem to do it.
After about 5 minutes he made it to me and I was hooked.


To make a long story short, Jordan convinced me to become a foster mom to this cute little guy.
His name was Sherlock but I changed it to Beau (whoops!).
I was given everything I needed for Beau.
A crate, a leash and colar, food bowels, and fea medicine.
All I had to buy was food (and of course I bought some toys, treats, and a bed).
He is just the sweetest puppy ever! 
I'm trying my very best to not get attached but boy is it hard!
He's about 2 years old and is pretty well potty trained.
(Save for 2 little accidents, one of which made me so mad because we had just spent 20 minutes outside and he didn't go!)
I also had to show him how to go up and down the stairs.
Now he's a pro!


It's defiantly a HUGE responsibility.
 Luckily my roommates have taken him out while I'm gone and played with him and taken him out.
Did I mention this is my first dog?
Yeah, we had cats growing up.
So I find myself worrying over every little thing he does or doesn't do.
Y'all will be seeing a lot of him around the blog!
At least until he gets adopted.



 Isn't he just the sweetest thing you've ever seen.
I think so.
But then he is my baby!

Have a great Labor Day!!
I however will be laboring today, and getting holiday pay while I do it!
Woo!
