Well, it’s been almost a month since I last blogged. A lot has happened since my last post, so here’s the reader’s digest version:
- Thanksgiving: Did everyone have a nice Thanksgiving? We did. Nola and I went down to Massachusetts to visit with my mom’s side of the family. The Mr. went to see his mom and family in northern Maine. Even though this is the one holiday I have NEVER spent with the Mr., I still enjoyed it.
- Trip to Seattle: My show went well. It was a looooong flight and a looooong trip, but good. I even made it to the Space Needle this year!
- Christmas decorations: I flew home from WA for a couple days to unpack and repack for my next trip to LA. I did find time to decorate a bit. I think the pups liked it!
- Nola lost a tooth: Not just any tooth, her top canine tooth! She was chewing a bone the night before I had to leave again and I heard a crack. I checked her mouth and found that her tooth was gone. But there was no blood, no remnants of a root, nothing. It was like it just vanished. After the Mr. took her to the vet, it was determined this happened a while ago. I have no idea how we did not see blood, the tooth, or any signs from Nola she was in pain. It’s just crazy! I still feel so sad and felt so guilty for not noticing sooner. Nola’s jowls are so long that I barely ever see her top teeth, but I should have looked in her mouth more often!
- Trip to New Orleans: I always love this trip because it is where the Mr. proposed and it is the town that Nola is named after. The weather was warm and my show went well.
- New Camera: I got a new camera! It was supposed to be a Christmas present from my parents and the Mr., but I couldn’t wait. It’s my first ever DSLR, a Nikon 3100. While I am still learning how to use it, you should see an increase in the quality of photos on the blog (except for those that I have to take quickly or the pups will move, those I still use my iPhone because I always have it with me).
And the biggest news:
- An Application came in for Anna: While I was in New Orleans I got an email from Almost Home Rescue that an application had been submitted for Anna (her first one in the three months she’s been with us). It looked promising and there was a home visit arranged later that week. I don’t want to go into too much detail here, but stay tuned for more about this!
So that’s it in a nutshell. Hope you all had a great month. I am still catching up on all the dog blogs I follow, and it seems like I missed a lot! I will make sure to share much more about Anna’s search for her forever home this week.
Thanks for the update…Love the decorations!; it’s just a tooth, she has many more :); Anna looks fantastic! Her colors have deepened and she looks like she has blossomed with you and Jim.; Can’t wait to hear about the “possible” adoption? I guess we are reduced to communicating via blog…<3
Love the new photos! We recently got a new DSLR camera too. We’ll be keeping our fingers and paws crossed for Anna…
Wow, you have been busy! Sorry to hear about the tooth but I’m glad Nola is OK and I’m jealous of your new camera, that’s awesome. But, I’m super excited to hear about Anna’s news!
What a busy fall you’ve had! That makes me tired just reading about it, but I’m sure you’re happy to be home. We’re happy to have you back in blog-land!
Love this recap, never knew Nola was named after the city and yeeeahaawwwww for meets and greets with potential new adopters! You have been busy! Excited to hear how you like that camera also!
Welcome back! Sorry to her about Nola’s tooth; can’t wait to hear the update on Anna ;o)
