Blanket Statements


While I'm embracing the change in temperature with a return to knee socks, scarves, and wrap cardigans, Dexter's preference is plush blankets. Curled up on the couch, anything that cute deserves a good tucking-in with a cozy blanket. I can only hope he'd return the favor should he find me there. Highly unlikely, though. He'd probably body slam me and then salivate all over my face. 

*Small Measure: Give love with no expectation of return. Plain and simple. I love my dog because I do. He's ridiculous and spastic and leaps in mid-air without provocation simply because of his boundless enthusiasm for life. He won't make my morning tea or rub my shoulders or weed the garden for me, but it doesn't matter. What he gives and shows in his actions is all the return I need.

Just discovered your blog today. I think I came to it via Cold Antler Farm. My husband and I are coming to stay in Sylva NC in a couple of weeks. Since finding Oak Moon Creamery on your blog, I hope to visit or at least buy some cheese. If there are any other interesting things to do, not seen in the travel guide for that area, please let me know. My email is whitson@cableone.net. Or post here, since I am sure I will be back. Thanks so much. I am enjoying your blog and other sites that you list. Jenna, at Cold Antler, is a real inspiration and I think you will be too. Happy Fall from West TN

I can see why you are in love with this adorable poochy...just look at those paws! They look like big cuddly bear paws. :)

Awwwww... keep that poochy warm! I have that same kind of unconditional love for my kitties. They might eat my food, and hack hairballs on my rug, but I loves 'em anyway.

You should get him a snuggie for dogs! He would look like little red riding hood :)
