Sunday Reflections…

Last night was interesting to say the least.. We have a new puppy in the house 🐶 You forget just how involved it is. They have such incredible energy! Having to take them out to walk, clean up after their accidents, watch where you step and what you leave down… Etc. Then, at bedtime, the whining and barking is non stop for a while. Then there’s the late night walks, more water, more play, more whining… Wow! Energy without bounds.

Bell just loves her rabbit 🐇 and her bone 🦴 and her ball 🏀 and her new home I think 🏡 😊

Then, just when you think it might have been a mistake, that it’s gonna be so much work and effort… she crawls up on you and goes to sleep in your lap… Thats when you realize that Love is a four legged word 🐶❤️ You’ve got a new family member, a new baby… and the whining stops when you let her sleep beside you in the bed 🛌

“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.”

Have a great Sunday 🙏🏻

Throwback Thursday

I made a “random” Facebook post today with a picture of our dog Ranger as a puppy. He was a big hit! He’s such a handsome dog and he was the cutest puppy ever 🐶 Honestly, I didn’t even think about the fact that it’s #throwbackthursday!

Isn’t he the cutest little puppy ever? 😊 Well, now he’s a 90 pound lap dog 🐕

So I thought I would just flip the same theme over to my blog today. What a great Throwback memory! He is now 4 years old 😊

Here’s a little collage over time from puppy to recent…

PS: I literally forgot to publish this earlier today 🙄 Hope you had a great Throwback Thursday!

A Happy Ending for Lil’ Bit’ | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I think yesterday was a day for the books! Not only were we able to save that poor flea infested little puppy from almost certain death, we were blessed with the perfect couple to take her into their family and her new Forever Home 🏡.

You remember this flea infested little gal from yesterday’s blog. Well, she was adopted into the perfect family within 30 hours of my original contact.

So many people saw her on my blog yesterday that wanted to know if they could help. Several wanted to Adopt her too 😊 WOW! It makes me feel good about the world when so many offer their support for an abandoned dog.

An old friend called me about her (we were calling her Lil’ Bit’ at the time). As soon as I heard his voice and realized what the call was about, I was thrilled! He and his beautiful wife wanted to give this puppy a home 🏡. I couldn’t think of a better place for her to be!

What a great picture! Lil Bit’ got the perfect family and a Forever Home!

Sometimes things work out! We are going to miss this little gal 😊

She’s happy and headed home now 😊 Good luck with your new home Lil’ Bit. I’m anxious to hear what your name will be. I’ll update everyone when I hear.

I Love ❤️Dogs!

We ALL Need somebody to LOVE | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I just happened to be in the right place at the right time and was able to save this little puppy that someone just threw out into the street.

Someone literally threw this little puppy out in the street. She was so scared.

She was completely flea infested! I have never seen an infestation worse – WOW! Hundreds of fleas on this 1 little puppy 😞 She had scratched the fur off her neck where she had been itching so badly from all those fleas…

She had scratched the fur completely off in many areas fighting the fleas. It took several baths and quite a while with tweezers to get all the fleas.

After we got her all cleaned up, we got her to take some milk from a syringe & then off to the vet we went.

I don’t think she had eaten in a while.

The vet gave her the needed shots, wormed her, trimmed her nails & weighed her (1 lb). She’s around 7 weeks old. Now she’s sleeping soundly wrapped up in a blanket.

She’s sleeping & doing fine. It’s got to be a relief not to have all those fleas…

I think she’s gonna be ok 😊 All she needed was a little Love ❤️
