2014 was many things, but it certainly wasn’t dull. Here’s some of my favorite photos from some of our most memorable moments this past year.30.1

2014 started with snow


Lots and lots of snow


It also marked Eko turning the big 3


We took some fun trips – the Beggin’ Pet Parade was a blast


I got the girl!


We moved apartments, comfortably of course


I got another girl too!


Penny fit right in with the gang


And her charm was too much to resist


These two became inseparable


Penny grew in leaps and bounds


And in length too, of course


She’s nearly Eko’s match!


We had lots of firsts, like Penny’s first dog-ice-cream-cone


And her first boat ride


We were lucky to spend the year with plenty of friends from every species


We found time for some mischief 


And there were shenanigans. There’s always shenanigans. 


We loved a good pup, we lost a good pup, and we live with a reminder to always choose the moments that blow back your hair


We rounded out the year with some wonderful holiday time with our families


What will next year bring? It’s hard to see


But whatever 2015 may bring, we’ll face it together with all the love and joy we can muster

Thanks to everyone who has come along for the adventure. We share our journey with you, you share you stories with us and we all share a common love for the pets that enrich our lives beyond words. It’s these connections and this shared experience which makes the journey and the blog such a joy.

Cheers to 2014! Time to take a breath and get ready to dive head first into 2015!

    Seeing your pups brings tears to my eyes – I don’t know why. I just love seeing well loved dogs, following their adventures. Can’t believe how quickly Penny grew – she is a delight. Wish I could hug them both for real. Have a fabulous New Year – thanks for sharing your babies and enriching all of our lives in doing so.
