5 Years Fly By!

Hey, everyone!

On Thursday, Nola will be five years old. I can't believe it! My first dog, my heart dog, my baby girl and my learning curve is all grown up. I couldn't ask for a better dog.

It sounds trite, but she couldn't be more perfect if she was made just for me (maybe she was!). I never imagined that the tiny 8 week old trouble maker would turn into this incredible, charismatic little spitfire you see on the blog. I can't believe how lucky I am.

For those who've had a heart dog, you understand exactly what I mean: Having this perfect dog that puts all others to shame, that's built to fit you perfectly and challenges you just the right way (or maybe I just like being kept on my toes ;)), the one pet you can't imagine life without. It's the most exhilarating and at the same time terrifying thing you can experience with a dog.
If you haven't had a heart dog, you'll get there! There's a Nola out there for everyone. <3

If that wasn't the most disjointed thing I've ever read, I don't know what was. ;) I'm all kinds of sentimental and sappy right now!

October is a favorite month around here; not only do we get some gorgeous weather, and Halloween of course, but October 8th is Nola's birthday! She'll be 5 years old. Holy crap! How did that even happen?! I can't believe my Bug-a-Boo, my Tiny Terror, my first dog is going to be 5.

It's once again time for the monthly dog cost recap!

A great month! I bought two bags of food on sale: 14lbs of Evolve Grain Free and 33lbs of Canidae Chicken Meal all life stages kibble. The Evolve was on sale at Publix, and had a flash sale on Canidae. 33lbs for $13.99! Everyone but Nola can eat those, so I grabbed her food, too. Nature's Variety Instinct grain free rabbit meal. There's a nice stockpile of food in the "dog closet" now!
