Best Shot Monday: Meet Miley!


Meet Miley! I spent some time at Jacksonville's Animal Care & Protective Services today walking the dogs and doing their glamour shots. This girl, Miley, stole my heart. She was the last dog I took out, and she was soooooo patient! She'd see me walk by to sanitize my hands between dogs, so she saw a lot of me before I finally got to her (I photographed 28 dogs today!). And she just sat there wagging her tail the entire time like she was saying, "Okay! Me next, right!? Me, next?" She was easy to leash and super sweet outside. She's about 11 years old, and based on her A number, this is not her first time at the shelter. Her notes said she came in as a stray, and I just can't imagine someone letting this sweet gal get away. Have a place in your heart and home for a super sweet senior gal? Miley is your girl!

June Free Bling Friday!

Happy June! And, of course, happy Hurricane Season to my fellow Floridians! I feel like hurricane season just ended, and here we've already had our first named storm of 2018 before the season officially started. We're still not fully recovered from our Irma damage from last year!  So time for this month's Free Bling. Congratulations to Peggy in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who received May's Free Bling. This month, I've pulled together something from some beads that have been hanging out on my bead board for a while. These are actually from a sweet little bracelet my girls received from a gallery owner. He makes the beads and turns them into bracelets specifically for young visitors who receive them free of charge. So sweet!  This one was a little too big for Sarah, so she asked me to size it down for her, and I ended up with four extra beads, two of which you see here!  This pair reminds me of old-fashioned barbershop poles.
