  • Celebrating this Special Guy Today. Something You May Not Know.

    This handsome little guy turns 55 today. The only boy out of five sisters.

    I met this little guy when he was just four years old. Little did I know, or perhaps I did, but he would turn out to be the love of my life.

    You see, this is my Johnnie. The man Ive been married to for almost 30 years.

    Oh how I recall seeing him for the first time in highschool. I was a freshman and he was a senior. I can still see that dark blue winter jacket he wore with the fake fur collar (yes, that was in then). His...

    What an absolutely beautiful Labor Day weekend. I hope wherever you are, you are enjoying your extended weekend. I LOVE this time of year and am excited to be heading into the fall season.

    Though in a way it was hard to take off my old decals which had my Frankie on either side, I do love my new larger decals.

    What a joyful and sweet surprise when I ran to the local laundromat to wash my king size comforter to meet this little cutie there. Her name is Lola. Her mom owns the laundromat and yes,...

    If I dont make the bed right away in the morning, Kylie beats me to the punch and makes herself cozy after eating her breakfast.

    And you know what I like about my wiser, older self? So what. So what if the bed does not get made for a couple of hours. I just make half of the bed and let her linger as long as she wants. This is what mattersher happiness.

    No one is going to care if my bed is made or not. But I care that Kylie is happy and content. This is just how it is and I like it. Such a...

  • Letting Go.

    Letting go to make room for new things to expand and evolve in your life at first sounds easy, doesnt it? Though the times Ive found it hardest to let go is when it is something I enjoy.

    As fall is approaching I have some new projects I want to consider, and an adventure I want to explore and take part in. That meant letting go to open space for this to allow to unfold.

    Little signs were calling out to me, but at times I tried to push them aside. It is sometimes easier to stay with what we...

    We are moving and shaking big time the happy dance today here at Joyful Paw Headquarters with two new dogs we get to share with you who are the recipients of a wheelchair courtesy of The Frankie Wheelchair Fund.

    First, meet Princess. She is the 28th dog weve been honored to help! She is still getting used to her wheels, but doing a little bit better every day according to those that love her dearly. From her ears beginning to fly out to the side as in this photo, Id say she is making great...

  • Sunbathing Weenie

    It seems as if this ledge was made for just the right sized weenie. Not too narrow and not too wide to fit this 9 lb., 12- inch long sausage dog.

    The perfect spot at the end of a hard working day of napping in my writing cottage. Miss G loves this time to soak in a bit of the sun beating down from the west.

    You can almost smell the sausage baking, cant you? Mmm. Mmm. good.

    Well, I could eat up this little love in terms of squeezing her tight and smooching the sides of her snout at least one...

  • Cost of a Dog Wheelchair (dog cart)? Quality of Life: Priceless.

    When Frankie needed a wheelchair back in 2006 I had no idea they even made wheelchairs for dogs. I learned about them as Frankie was heading into surgery for a ruptured disk. The surgeon assured me at the time if the surgery wasnt a success, Frankie could go on to live a quality life in a wheelchair.

    I also had no idea how much they cost, but put it out of my mind because I wanted so badly for her to walk on her own again. I dont think many people would...
