The beasts take on Independence Day
​There’s nothing like some pure Americana activity on the July 4th holiday. I’m pretty sure fireworks have become required for this holiday. While the sparkly fire booms can be pretty and magical, they can also be misery-inducing, especially for combat veterans or a pet that thinks the apocalypse is finally dawning.

Ditch your alarm clock and get a cat
Every morning it starts with sweet purring. In the deep darkness of my room it starts as a gentle and delicate lulling, but intensifies in to a full-fledge roar, as if someone had started a cat-themed, completely upgraded monster truck on the pillow to my left.

Ahorita: Happy 1st Gotcha Day, Smidge
After spending so much of my life curious about the tiny dogs with alien faces, here I was in an outdoor pen, in the middle of June, looking for a dog that could encompass all of my lifetime experiences into one tiny package.

Good dog, bad egg
Somehow, I didn’t ruin my rescue dog’s first trip to a sidewalk café even though I had to dislodge an entire scrambled egg from her throat.

Chloe in the afternoon. And evening. And morning. Actually all the time.
I actually almost changed my name when I was 18 to Alyson-Chloe, not just because it sounded like French glamour and champagne kisses, BUT BECAUSE CHLOE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE MY NAME.

The tooth about maturity
What I do know is, my black beauty is getting older, and apparently at a more rapid rate than I thought.

Sorry, Sparkle, it's not that kind of boneyard
Maybe one day Smidge will be so well-trained I can fully trust her while I am in a cemetery. It *is* always nice to have the companionship. But for now I can rely on Sparkle.
