Our friend Jeff's Cheagle (Chihuahua-Beagle mix), Myrtle, has become our roommate for a couple of months while her dad finishes culinary school in Colorado to become a pastry chef. Jeff was visiting over the holidays and made the decision to let Myrtle stay with us while he finishes his last month of school and then moves to his new location (out of Colorado) for his externship with an upscale bakery... but that's his story to tell.
Myrtle, Dolly and Franklin wait to come in the house
L to R: Myrtle, Franklin, Dolly and Tyler on the T
Meanwhile, as soon as Myrtle came into the house, she played with our Dachshund Tyler and ran around the house with all 3 of our canine kids. She fell right back into the routine of going out in the backyard, going for a walk with Dolly, Franklin and Tyler; and she even re-claimed her favorite spot on the upstairs couch in the TV room! Welcome back, Myrtle!
Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity. What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love? We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites. Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
We're two married guys who enjoy the simple things in life, especially our dogs. We volunteer for dog rescues, enjoy splitting dinners, exercising, blogging, helping friends and neighbors, ghost investigations, coffee and tea, Tudor history, weather, superheroes, comic books, mystery novels, traveling, 70s and 80s music, classic country, piano, gardening, writing books on ghosts and spirits, architecture, keeping a clean house, cooking simply, and keeping in shape. You'll find tidbits of all of these things on this blog and more.
