      The animals definitely make me feel better when things are crappy. I got Bella a squeaky toy shaped like a Halloween bat. She LOVES this thing. She was playing with it this morning and it was so cute it was hard to be in a bad mood!

    oh my God – your sink is CRAZY! Just glad no one got hurt. Your new one should last forever.

    Dog parks are great for socialization. Fortunately, Max is great there. Cady was ok, but sooner or later a fight would break out. I’m glad that Bella’s happiness put you in a better mood.

    I’m taking Max to basic obedience, but it’s hard bc Chris isn’t joining us so he’s not being trained too. ๐Ÿ™‚ He wants Max to just get it, but it’s work on both sides.

    We want to see Amy when we’re down next so maybe we can all get together at the dog park!

      It was such a surreal thing. One moment I’m brushing my teeth, the next minute there’s glass everywhere. It really sucked and no matter how many times I cleaned (scrubbed, swept, vacuumed) I’m still finding pieces of glass. ๐Ÿ™

      It would be GREAT to meet up with you guys at the dog park. Bella would have a blast and I want to meet Max!

    OMG that thing with your sink is crazy! Good thing you didn’t get hurt.

    I totally understand about wrestling with cats when it’s time for the vet. Luckily, our cats are pretty trained to come when they hear the treats shaking and we also have other audio cues to get them to come out that we can resort to if the treat shaking doesn’t work! Those pics of Bella are so cute! Pure doggy happiness!

      I got some glass in my hand but nothing bad. And I’m still finding some glass even though I cleaned it three times.

      Oh it was total doggy happiness!

    I didn’t know a sink could even do that – even a glass one! Glad you didn’t hurt yourself! And that last picture of Bella makes me get another dog – soon!

      I didn’t know it could do that either!!!

    Such a bummer about the sink. I saw someone do that to a glass top stove. Dropped a pot on it (not really hard, either it just hit it perfectly). The top totally shattered.

      Oh man, a stove? That sounds worse!

    I’ve said it before, but I just wanna snuggle Bella! She is so cute.

    I had a great weekend. We had my stepson for the first time (distance wise it would be comparable to us living in San Fran and him in LA so we don’t see him much). 5 days with a gorgeous 2 year old who wanted nothing else but to cuddle up with me. I think I caught his strep throat tho ๐Ÿ™

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Thank you Jess! I think she’s adorable.

      Awwww 2 is such a cute age. Sorry about the strep though. Hope you feel better.
