It’s our day off.
What’s any good day off involve?
Well, let’s see…
It might involve that whole ” Adulting ” thing.
[Ya know] Like paying bills, running errands, and grabbing groceries.
Closely followed by a fantastic Enchilada lunch [I’ll blog later] and a good cup of coffee.
I almost forgot about the puppies.
…Somewhere in between that Enchilada Queso sauce and a Venti Vanilla Latte…
We stopped for puppies.
We just happened to be driving past Brother Wolfe Animal Rescue.
[Brother Wolf Animal Rescue is a wonderful no-kill rescue facility located in Asheville, NC ]
Me: “Let’s stop by. We can visit the puppies . We can give them treats. And show them some Love”.
The husband [so brilliant]: “You’re going to get attached. You’re going to want to adopt all the dogs. And we can’t right now”.
Me: yea. No. I’m totally fine. I just want to say hi [he’s totally right]
[Have you ever had a vision of running in a field filled with Puppies? Doesn’t that sound like the best dream ever?!]
So. There we’re at Brother Wolf.
Just walking thru. Visiting & handing out treats.
And then we saw her.
A little smiling face. Wagging tail.
The cutest little furball in the world.
She looked like some kind of mini-Aussie & Lab mix
Body and mannerisms of a mini-Aussie. The fur of a lab.
She had this twinkle in her eye.
We’d continue looking around, look over, and there she was, smiling at us.
My husband couldn’t stop smiling.
As we were leaving, we discussed how she would be an excellent addition to our family.
We named her Lexi. “Little Gray.” And talking about picking up an adoption application.
I want to rescue all the puppies.
Sometimes, you must know when to give up, throw in the towel, or get a new sweater.
This brings us to sweaters.
Do you realize how many sweaters are out there?
Specifically dog sweaters.
[There are a lot of dog sweaters out there in the world]
In the wake of wanting to adopt all the dogs and a Venti coffee…
We ended up at Petsmart. Surrounded by dog sweaters.
We sat and debated all the different sweaters for our dogs.
Salvatore needs a rain slicker. The border collie doesn’t like getting his fur wet. Spencer [our mini Aussie] loves wearing sweaters. Plus, she gets cold. And the one she has now is a little worn. So she is due for an upgrade.
You’re that ‘Dog Parent’ when you spend 30 minutes debating over dog sweaters. Literally.
Pink doesn’t fit her’. The Velcro could be uncomfortable. The argyle square print. The argyle square is perfect.
We leave with one sweater. But want five sweaters. Sound familiar?
***[Luckily till tomorrow, Petsmart , is having a 40% sale ,on coats & sweaters. plus an additional 15% for PetPerks Members YES. So we got a $20 sweater for $10] ***
Some things are unresolved. Timing is everything. We’d love little Grey. But right now, we have two dog sweaters. We don’t want to overstuff the closet. But we’d love a bigger family. Maybe sometime soon. I’m grateful for the beautiful family I do have.
Quirky and in love with adorable dog sweaters,

A couple of weeks ago I was SO tempted to buy a cat sweater with a reindeer on it for my friend’s cat. But then I decided I didn’t want to spend $20 on something the cat would HATE. So I made one. LOL. Cat still hated it.
