This Week at the Humane Society – Toby

Boy have things been busy! This week I spent some time with Toby, a 5-year old American Bull Dog mix. Those who say dogs don’t smile clearly haven’t met Toby. Just look at that mug! 🙂 Not only was Toby smiling from ear to ear, but he loved the playground toys. Check it out 🙂

My time with Molly was filled with water, sand and so much fun! I didn’t know what she was going to do next, but I was all in.

True Doggywood Story- Minnie, the Life of an International Model

Meet Minnie. She leads a double life as an international super model, modeling for the likes of Marc Jacobs, Givenchy, Chanel.. just to name a few. Here are some of her Instagram photos.

 

The life of an international model consists of passing out in French hotel rooms after a night of heavy partying and Apples to Apples.

When she's not partying, she's taking Selfies..

"Smizing"

Smizing – thanks Tyra.

Just like Linda Evangelista, Minnie doesn't get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day..

Just when the "puparazzi" tries to sneak in a photo, Minnie knows and finds a way to pose.

When the paparazzi tries to sneak in a photo, I always find a way to give them my best angle.

Update on Darling!

I’m so excited to share the news that Darling found a furever home! Not only was she adopted, but her little sidekick, lovingly named Lil Darling (after Darling) was adopted by the same family. Here’s the wonderful story:

This couple at the Humane Society expressed interest in adopting a dog and possibly even two. They were being told by one of the Humane Society volunteers that there was this little dog named Lil Darling and how she was named after this other dog, Darling.

Since the couple expressed interest in two dogs, the volunteer brought Darling out and Darling immediately went over and put her head in both laps of the couple! Talk about double the love, double the happily ever after! Here is Darling and Lil Darling at their new furever home!

This Week at the Humane Society – Meg

We went out of town for the holidays so I’m a little behind on my videos. We went to Indiana to visit family and boy was the weather a fantastic relief from this Florida heat!

Meg knows this Florida heat all too well but she found a great dirt hole to cool off. It took her no time to get used to me and once she did, my gosh was she loving. Sometimes I think the dogs know they are being filmed and ham it up for the camera aka Ipad. She kept giving me her best angle and I couldn’t get enough of her smiling from ear to ear. 🙂

Sock Mafia

When I was younger, I couldn’t tell you how many mismatched socks I had but it was a lot! My 10-year old self had two theories.

A. There was a magical black hole in the washer/dryer that my socks had fallen into.

B. My Toy Poodle Sunny Bubba had taken them.

After all, he would always steal them and they would disappear, never to be found again. I was convinced that when we left him alone in the house, he lead a double life as the head of the Sock Mafia- he even had the first name of a Corleone. And my socks? Sunny Bubba’s Jimmy Hoffa.

When we moved I was sure we would find all of those missing socks. After all we were packing everything. Behind the couch? Nope. Under the bed? Nope. The mystery for me was never solved. So when I came across this story, I had to share.

A 3 year-old Great Dane was rushed to an animal hospital after falling ill and guess what they found… 43 1/2 socks inside of his stomach!

At least the sock caper has been solved for one family and they now have some closure. (and thank goodness the dog was ok)

For the rest of us? I put my money on the Sock Mafia.
