Something I never anticipated when becoming a mother was how intentional I HAD to be about things I used to do during down time.Continue reading “Pugs & Pushups without the Pugs or Pushups?”
When I got her home she ran inside as if she knew we were home! She smelt my whole apartment and took an interest in my boy Charlie. Where he went, she went. Charlie is kind hearted and wouldn’t hurt a fly so he quickly took her under his wing. She slept comfortably on my couch next to me snuggled up to my leg, melting my heart with each and every deep breath that she took. She was comfortable, home, and it showed in her demeanor …
