In May 2015, in celebration of one year together, Cole and I added Beaux to our little family.
He’s now a three-year-old, 90lb chocolate lab, with a special white patch on his chest. From the start, we’ve absolutely adored him and taken him everywhere we go.
The first night we brought him home, we traveled to stay with friends in Tyler, Texas and took him along. Cole tried to make him sleep in the crate, but after 30 minutes of crying, we couldn’t take it anymore and the bed has been his ever since!
We have a little saying – “if he can’t go, we can’t go”- and you can usually find us out together on a body of water hunting, fishing, or just exploring.
Last year, when my dad’s duck dog Bella passed away unexpectedly, we took some time to heal from the loss before bringing in another dog.
After months of searching, I found a reputable German Shorthaired Pointer breeder in Tomball, Texas and Cole and I went to pick out a new sweet girl. We came home with River, who’s now a year old, and we’re not so sure she’s a dog.
The hopes of her being my dad’s new hunting buddy quickly flew out the window when we realized she’d rather watch TV on our lap than dive into a pond.
At first, Beaux didn’t like her, but as he realized she was MY new baby, he gave her a chance and they’re best friends now.
They spend hours running along the fence line in the backyard, then pass out together at my feet. You’ll always find one wherever the other is.
In 2009, my dad gave Lola to Ava and I for Christmas, but she only like me. Seriously, I’m the only one of the 5 of us whom she hasn’t bitten…
She turned nine last month, and it shows – but only in her attitude. Otherwise, she keeps up with the other two and actually leads the pack most days.
In typical #DOGMOM fashion, I jumped at the opportunity to get a mystery grab bag stuffed full of items from Inspiration.fit, a fitness apparel clothing brand out of Orlando, Florida.
For a limited time, the bag comes with 4 items for you + a little something for your furry love, all for just $25! The team designs, prints, and packages each item in-house and the personal touch makes it so much more special. For example, if you purchase more than one mystery bag of the same theme, they ensure that you won’t get duplicate items.
My bag contained the bandana & matching tee, shown above, a blue ‘Hot Mess Dog Mom’ tank, a black ‘Dog Hair Don’t Care’ short-sleeve tee, and an army green ‘Shed Happens’ tee shown below.
p.s. if you order, send me pics! I LOVE getting pics/videos of pups.
