One size fits all…

Here is our little guy, Scooter, resting comfortably in his bed…

Apparently, our Labrador, Jasmine, has no idea how big she is…

…and that’s not the first time she has squeezed herself into Scooter’s bed…

Ah, here is a bed that actually fits both of them…

Oops, we did it again…

After our first dog passed away almost two years ago, we swore we would never have a pet of any kind (read a little more about it here). Of course, that all changed when we adopted Jasmine, a Labrador Retriever, just over a year ago. And now, we’ve added another furry family member…


Meet Scooter, a little guy who weighs just over 12 pounds and is lightning fast on his feet. He looks like a pup, but he is actually about 2 years old. Even though Jasmine is almost five times Scooter’s size and weight, she is super gentle with him as they wrestle with each other; sometimes his whole head ends up in her jaws. They have become fast friends, though, and it’s a joy to watch them play with one another.

Scooter was abandoned in a foreclosed home in the San Francisco Bay Area in the fall of 2012. Naturally, we didn’t think too much about his pedigree; we assumed he was some type of Chihuahua mix mutt. After doing some research, though, it turns out that he is likely a “designer dog” known as an Italian Greyhuahua – a cross between an Italian Greyhound and a Chihuahua! He looks exactly like the smoky grey dog on the facebook page for fans of this hybrid.

Regardless of Scooter’s pedigree, our family loves him just the same. Hopefully he and Jasmine will enjoy many years together.


Alice + Nicholas: Wedding Day

In between being a reader at my friend’s wedding; helping my husband keep three kids busy and entertained; passing out programs to guests; decorating the dining tables; and trying to ignore my ill-fitting high heels, I somehow managed to snap a few pictures of the wedding ceremony and reception. One photo stood out as my favorite for the day…


Dog Days

After our dog passed away last April at the ripe old age of 14, we were so certain we would not have a dog again for a while, if ever. With three kids growing up quickly and time becoming an ever precious commodity in our household, we really didn’t think we could open our hearts to another dog. In fact, we were sure we would not have a pet of any type. If it walked, crawled, hopped, wriggled, swam, or breathed, we would have none of it. We donated our remaining doggie supplies and didn’t think twice about it.

Never say never…

On Thanksgiving weekend last year, about seven months after our dog had passed, a furry 58 pound white Labrador Retriever named Jasmine bounded into our home and into our hearts. Her gentle, happy nature brings a simple joy and love into our household. Now we can’t imagine life without her.
