Maggie just got into a fight with a massive raccoon

I just let Maggie outside and not two seconds after she hit the porch, something came walking up the steps. 

Maggie was gone and all I heard this really loud growling.  

Next thing I know, Maggie’s going absolutely crazy and she’s in a fight with something.  

I ran into the house to grab a flashlight and wiffle bat before dashing back out to the yard.… Read More



Our Naughty Dog Caught On Camera: You have to see this to believe it (@vivinthome)

It’s been a really long night already and it’s not over yet.  The boys came home today and when we went tried to put them in bed, we ran into a a problem.

I have some really good news about Maggie

We got some bad news from the vet about Maggie’s injury

The boys and I have been back home from the vet’s office and eaten dinner.  I have a few minutes to update everyone on what happened with Maggie at the vet’s office this afternoon.  
About 2 weeks ago, Maggie was playing with Gavin outside and started limping.  

I was between pays and couldn’t get her into the vet right away but spoke with the vet and she was put on best rest for lack of a better term.… Read More
