Happy Third Anniversary to my Hairy Man

I am having a very hard time believing that three years ago today I marched my butt up to the Humane Society of North Texas and impulsively adopted a wirey matted canine named Coco. Watson, as he came to be known, belonged to a family who lived on a farm who couldn't care for him anymore due to an ill family member. I had never owned an adopted dog before and I'm confident I will never buy from a breeder again. There's a special kind of friendship you have with an adopted dog that can't easily be put into words. I do know, however, that Watson knows I saved him. He thanks me everyday with kisses and cuddles and I thanked him right back with a special Sprinkles doggie cupcake today.

If you haven't considered adopting a pet, please look into it and see if it's right for you and your family. There are thousands of pets looking for homes and I know there's one out there that will love you as much as you love them! 

If you're not into the whole canine companionship kind of thing at least consider adopting a pooch because they make great home accessories*. Just look at these homes...

*I in no way, shape or form endorse you buying a dog because they make your home look better. That was my lame attempt at a joke.

Sally adopted. It's obviously cool.

Paloma Contreras of La Dolce Vita has a sweet poochie named Tate.
He and Watson clearly got the message that sitting in human seats is pretty rad.

Kyle Knight of Knight Moves is a foster mom to pups.
She obviously gets super karma points from the canine community.

And there you have it. Behind every designer is a sweet puppy. Go get yourself one.


  1. Love this post! We celebrated Hank's 3rd birthday this weekend too! Rescue dogs are the best way to go!

  2. Yaaay!!! I couldn't agree more!!! There are so many great dogs out there that need homes. My sweet Sidney is 15 years old now and still the BEST DOG EVER!!!!! (Btw, Watson has to be one of the cutest dogs I've ever laid my eyes on.)

  3. Sally, you're so sweet! He thanks you for the compliment. So great to hear you've had so many wonderful years with Sidney. I hope I get to have 10 more years with my bubbas.

    Bailey, I hope Hank had a happy birthday! I'm sure he was a party animal. You should swing by Sprinkles and pick him up a puppy cupcake!
