My life changed dramatically and forever when I lost TJ.

I welcome you to follow along as I adjust to my "new normal".

It is not all puppies and ice cream but it is my life....real and honest.

Sandy's Dog Boarding

My house has gone to the dogs! Literally.

Mickey is not happy about it at all !!!

This is Macy. Her Mom is on vacation back east so she is staying with me for a week.
Macy was rescued from a back yard breeder.
When my friend took her to be spayed the vet said her uterus was as thin as paper from having too many litters.

This is Sadie. She belongs to my boss. I am keeping her until his house sales and he gets settled in somewhere else. She is only 10 months old and a wild child.

Now this.....this is my new love, Sophie. Or as she is frequently called now, Miss Loren. She belongs belonged to my boss also. Sadie is her litter mate and they could not be more different. I truly am keeping her forever.

Sophie and Tater Tot have become best buddies.

Tater Tot is just plain wore out from all the excitement around the house lately. But, he is glad that his new best friend, Sophie, will be living with us.


  1. I have been thinking about you a lot. I wanted to comment on the post where you asked about being torn between your past and your future. I knew there were some words of wisdom in me somewhere but I couldn't reach them. Reading this post I think it came to me: Between your past and your future lies your present and if we let go of our thoughts and our worries that is the best place to be. And I have found that when you are with dogs, cats, and any other critters, they make sure you stay in the present. So because of that I's so happy to hear about Sophie. She will just add to your blessings and you to hers. So just a few words from an old lady who is happy to be your friend.

  2. LOL, you really have gone to the dogs! Now I know who to have come take care of my Scooter next time we're on vacation.

  3. You really have gone to the dogs! And now I know who to have watch my sweet Scooter next time we go on vacation ;-)

  4. I love love love <3

    they are all
    G O R G E U SSssss. Xxxx

  5. you are running a dog hotel! :)

  6. best darn doggie hotel west of the Mississippi!! I Can say that as Macy is mine and she is safe with Sandy and her crew! Jealous that you can have so many pets they do keep us grounded and remind uz of unconditional love. Sometimes we need reminders that Love is to be shared not hoarded. My Macy reminds me of that every day she loves me for saving her I love her for saving me! Trish

  7. I'm sure the dogs are loving their stay at your doggie boarding house. I think they have it made. :)

  8. Oh Sophie's eyes just pull you in don't they. Love all your friends. B

  9. Lucky dogs to have you as a holiday host and lucky you to have them. I'm sure you are good for each other. And I think Sophie is adorable.

  10. You have such a big heart, Sandy. Sophie looks very much like our Dahlie. Coon Hound. :)

  11. Smiling, big time here. Your heart is as big as your "new" family!

  12. Oh Sandy....what sweet pooches!!!.....and that Sophie....what a doll. My older girl is named Sophie as well......such a regal name, don't you think? (O:(O:



  13. I am a true dog lover, and they have a special place in my heart that no one else can take. My little mutt is my best friend and I can't think of a better way to spend my time than with her.


Please, let me know your thoughts
