Perfect Fall Weekend

This weekend I was EXTREMELY lucky that {Andrew} arranged his schedule to have the weekend off with me. 🙂

We did some of my favorite fall activities! Like go to Mac Queen’s Apple Orchard for Apple Cider and Donuts! {Andrew} got a dozen including pumpkin, sugar, cider, apple & cinnamon, maple, and a few glazed. I tried a few as he proceeded to demolish all of them this weekend. They were delish.

 

We also went to a Golden Retriever  Rescue on Saturday. Andrew & I are really hoping to adopt a 2 year old golden! We’ve been searching, but haven’t quite found the girl or boy we’re looking for. We did a few searches between Saturday and Sunday, and haven’t found one yet.

We went out for lunch and dinner on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday. We normally don’t splurge going out to eat, but it’s been forever since we’ve been out together.

We did some yard work, and cleaning around the house…. Standard Stuff.

And Sunday besides another rescue, we went to a pumpkin patch to pick our pumpkins. Very successful I must say. They were only 20 cents a lb. That’s cheap!

I also showed Andrew one of the most gorgeous places in Toledo. I ran a race here last year, although it was a few weeks before the leaves changed, but it was gorgeous.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And a really great panoramic shot from Andrew 🙂

 

 

Already crossed off a few goals for October!

Also working on a Fall Bucket List!

 

Andrew & I have already crossed off the pumpkin patch, take a nature walk, picnic, and drink fancy coffee drinks :):) I guess you could say we’ve crossed off the two dates as well 🙂

Cheers to Fall!!!

 

 

 

Life would not be complete…

Without more Buffy photos!!! :):) These are from my graduation party. Sadly, that is the last time I’ve seen the little girl. I hear she’s getting so big!!! And developing quite the personality. She is attached to my parents. They can’t even leave the room. But she loves to run, and to play, and to be into everything. Especially the toilet paper! You can’t let her in the bathroom or you will find toilet paper trails all over the kitchen.

Last night was her first night at doggie training, and boy did she get into trouble. My mom called to report that she was the only dog to get sprayed with the water bottle, and not even once, but 5 times! She kept barking at the dog next to her. In her defense, it wasn’t appealing to look at.

Tomorrow night, I’ll get to see her again, and I’m very excited 🙂 My mom says she’s grown a lot and has become  easier to train and work with, and more lovable!

We finally have our puppy. And what a charismatic bundle of joy she is! We’ve had her for 2.5 weeks and she’s really progressing well! 🙂

But I’ll just get to the photos 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Buffy at 7 weeks.

It’s time for a new photo of the puppy!! 🙂 She’s seven weeks old now.  She is “really playful and curious”. Cannot wait to pick her up!! :):)

Isn’t she adorable?! I swear she’s like a little polar bear!

Counting down until May 20th!!

Love for Your Pets.

Today I am excited ecstatic to announce that we’re getting a puppy!! 🙂 I have NEVER had a dog before, and am completely excited about pet ownership.

I must mention that the dog will be at my mom’s house, but what’s your mom’s is still yours, right? Just like that tanning bed, we my mom has.

I must step back a moment and explain the situation. We’ve always had a cat. Our beloved Snickers.

Snickers

Snickers Asleep

We LOVED her. She was the best cat, ever. She may have hated company, and mostly wanted to be left alone; but she always loved her family.

Apparently she was out of places to sit.

She was always ready to meet you at the door, meow at you in the morning and perk up when you came around. Just recently, she started to get sick. She would throw up more often than normal, refuse to eat her food, until we exhausted every option available. In November, the vet said she was in kidney failure, but was not suffering. We chose to give her one last Christmas. This was the time of year she loved. She could eat the Christmas tree, poke herself in the eye with the needles, hide under the tree, and basically eat any time of grass plant that my mom laid out.

She thoroughly enjoyed Christmas this past year. She loved to dig in the wrapping paper and watch the family open gifts. If there was something going on, she was in the middle of it.

Sadly, at end the end of January (the moment I moved out) she took a turn for the worse. She went a week without eating, and eventually stopped using her litter box completely. No, she didn’t “go to the bathroom” on the floor. She just didn’t go. The vet determined it was time for her to gently be put to sleep.

The most devastating & heartbreaking event my family & I had ever been through was about to happen. My mom, decided to to wait a few days so I could come home and say good bye to her. It was the worst night of my life. But that night, Snickers showed more response by seeing me, than she had in a week.

I took a lasting photo of her. Kissed her goodbye. And left absolutely heartbroken.

Her last photo.

The next day (February 5th) it was her time to pass. 😦 Thankfully, my parents were with her, and she went peacefully without pain.

Now she is still with us, in spirit. We had her cremated because it was the dead of winter, and she absolutely hated the outdoors. She was not to be buried. Her ashes reside in a velvet bag, in a memory box on our china cabinet.

Exactly where you see her sitting now.

on China Cabinet

Obviously, she loved that spot & it was right next to her favorite window. She is loved & missed. We still talk to her everyday.

It’s taken some time, but my mom has decided that it is time to get a puppy that she has always wanted; a Westie. After some careful research, and contacting a breeder. We found our girl, our Buffy Marie. We’ll be making a 2 hour drive on May 21st to pick her up!

For now this is her.

Buffy

She’s only two weeks old, but looks precious as ever. We can’t wait to show her a house full of love!
