I Need You're Help!!

As many of you know, back in November I had to put my sweet Youri to sleep.
You can read about it HERE.

I adopted Youri from Lowcountry Animal Rescue. He had been neglected and abused all his life. He was 7 years old when I adopted him. He wasn't a dog that had a good chance of being adopted. Because of his medical and personality issues that he had from the abuse along with his age, he probably would have been euthanized if he had been sent to a kill shelter. For the time that Youri was in my life, he was worth every obstacle I had to overcome with his disabilities. I needed him just as much as he needed me.

I am forever grateful for rescue organizations such as this one and many others who give dogs like Youri a chance to find a loving home.

In memory of Youri
I will be walking in the Bark to the Park on April 14 at Finlay Park in Columbia to help the homeless animals in our communities. 

Bark to the Park is the largest event fundraiser for Pawmetto Lifeline and, in addition to the funds raised, the event brings greater awareness to companion animal issues such as homelessness, abuse and neglect. 

My goal is to raise $200 to help homeless animals in South Carolina get the care that they need and find loving homes.
I would greatly appreciate any money you could donate,
even if it's just a dollar.

Donating is easy!

Thank you for your support!

Tail Wagging Tuesday

Happy Valentine's Day!

Today I'm linking up with CMae for Tail Wagging Tuesday!

The topic is pictures of you and your furbabies showing the love!

Now I know I have a billion pictures of me and my furbabes loving on each other.
But, of course, I can't seem to find any now that I have a reason to.
So I'll just show a couple that I did find :)

A recent one of me and Pinto Bean :)

Me snuggling in bed with Pinto Bean and D'Artagnan!
I wasn't feeling to well a couple of weeks ago, and they took very good care of me :)
(Please excuse all of the laundry being done on the other side of me!)

And even though Youri is no longer with us, we used to share LOTS of love.

And since it's Valentine's day, I thought I'd share a few pictures of Allie on her first Valentine's Day :)
(Allie was my dog, but when I got married I just couldn't take her from my mom!)

Needless to say, she had a good day :)

I hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day!

Big Announcement

Happy Tuesday y'all!

I'm so excited to let y'all in on what's been going on in my life lately!

Chris and I have been trying, with some difficulty, to get pregnant for a while now.

So today I made a phone call to REACH,

and next Thursday I have my first appointment with a fertility specialist!

Chris and I are very hopeful and excited to start this process together :)

I would appreciate any prayers or positive thoughts that are sent our way!

Wish us luck!
