The Job I Was Made For

by Houndstooth on

This week while I’ve been on break, I’ve enjoyed being able to sit down in the mornings with the girls and take my time starting the day.  As I was relaxing the other morning, I saw a segment on the Today Show that made me sit up and take notice.  I’d heard the promotion clip […]

Eyes For You

by Houndstooth on

Not too long ago, someone offered me the opportunity to adopt a Greyhound puppy who had washed out of schooling for racing.  This little lady just didn’t have the interest and so they were looking to place her as a pet.  I saw her pictures and she is one adorable little dog.  My heart went […]
