greetings from doglandia.

Well hello there strangers!  Sorry for the radio silence here on That’s Me for the past however long.  I blame it on having 2 dogs now that take up all my times.  That’s what kids dogs are good for right?  Using as an excuse?  No?

It’s not so much that the Eddie addition is that much more work, I think it’s more that we’ve just been concentrating on getting he and Gus acclimated and spending some QT time with them to get them comfortable with their new situations, etc.  AKA more family time, less free (blog) time.  Also, it’s reallllly difficult to take out and about pictures when you are being pulled in opposite directions by two high energy pups.  There’s a (more than usual) amount of flailing about and tripping over sidewalk cracks on our morning walks, that’s for sure.

But!  Since I’ve last checked in, we’ve celebrated one birthday (Casey has officially entered the last year of his twenties!) AND Halloween.  Can you believe it’s November?  Starbucks has holiday cups already!  Everyone knows that that is the official start of the holiday season.

We’re gearing up for a little vacay as well – which couldn’t come at a better time.  In just three days we’re headed to good ‘ol Tucson, Arizona to ring in Homecoming with some of our pals from back in Casey’s grad school days.  We haven’t been back since we left in December of 2011.  Again, can you believe?  We’re so freaking excited it’s stupid.  There are about 15 of our favorite people that are headed back for the weekend so it’ll definitely be a fun little reunion.  A few of our favorite couple friends are bringing their infant children so I’m anticipating a change of pace from our usual pub-crawling, tailgating priorities.  There will definitely be a lot of kid talk on the horizon.  Although I can definitely relate to cleaning up poo and obsessing over every cute thing that my kid dog does.  AMIRIGHT dog owners?

In conclusion – here are some pictures of my very cute KIDS DOGS!

The end. Woof.


and eddie makes four.


In addition to having the brosef and family in town this past weekend, we also made an addition to our family…. in the form of doggie #2.  Internets, meet Eddie!


Eddie stole our dog-lovin’ hearts the moment we set eyes on him.  We found him on a beagle rescue site about a month ago, had a meet and greet, made sure he and Gus got along (they hit it off like gangbusters), waited until he got fixed up at the vet, filled out the paperwork, picked him up, brought him home, and loved him forever and ever the end.

Eddie’s had a rough go of things up to this point.  His last owners were terrible and did some pretty mean things to him.  Those assholes.  But you’d never know it because Mr. Ed is the sweetest little guy you’ll ever meet.  Seriously, he’s such a little love.   But with that much sweetness comes great responsibility to have some kind of issues, ya know?   He’s still being potty-trained, he has a tendency to nose through the garbage and Good Lawd! that dog can clear a room with his toots.

But it’s all fine because he’s SOCUTEOMG.

The first 3 days have been nutty but awesome.  Some Eddie highlights include: jumping onto the kitchen counter, peeing on Gus’s head, and breaking down our dog-baby gate.  You guys, he’s not even that big, he’s like 25 pounds.  That mofo has some serious street skillz.

So I guess we are officially crazy dog-people?  Or does that status come after 3 dogs?  Not that we’d ever get a third.  Unless he was as cute as our two little piggies…IMG_4830IMG_4848family photoPS Is it normal to find dog hair in your pockets?  Like, a lot of it?  If so, then I’m extremely normal.
