Day 12 of 13 Days of Halloween

Rosee, Rosee, Rosee.

The nosiest of Rosee’s.

It’s that time of year again…it’s Rosee’s birthday! Specifically, it’s her 7th birthday.

While, technically, we celebrate her birthday on Halloween, I thought I would take a moment today to reminisce about everything that is Rosee.

Day 12

She is loud, boisterous, playful, unapologetically herself, and very loyal to her people. Her enthusiasm for life is a good reminder to not take life too seriously sometimes, and enjoy the little things. Plus, her need for speed (walking, that is) has been good encouragement for all of us to maintain a healthy exercise routine.

She may have come to us as a shy, quiet puppy at 9 months old, from a cat rescue no less, but she blossomed into such a ball of energy. She keeps life interesting, and always makes us feel important when we arrive home and she’s so excited to see us. Although, of course, there are those times where she absolutely must have the exact spot on the couch where one of us just happens to be sitting, and it’s at these moments we may not be quite as special. 🙂

Puppy Rosee.

Not to mention, that she is a great Halloween dog costume model. From a being a bag of jelly beans, a lion, beauty queen, loofah, and a flower, she is always ready to bring the next costume to life.

Still, learning and growing with Rosee as she’s gotten older, and through her reactivity and fear issues, has taught us valuable life lessons. She’s taught us how to be confident, demand attention, be calm, and most importantly not worry so much about the judgments of other people. I mean, I get it, I have a big dog who is accompanied by a big bark…Seriously, it’s not news to us.

Adult Rosee.

Rosee has definitely made us into better people, as cheesy as that may sound. She may not have always been the easiest dog, but she’s been the dog that we needed in our life.

So, here’s to Rosee, and to (at least) another 7 years!

Santa Watch 2018: Day 24

Day 24, and it’s the night before Christmas. And all through the house, there was planning and strategizing going on as Rosee came up with her final plan.

Rosee knows just how to get Santa Claus’ attention. How about a few cookies?!? An old, classic that’s sure to work.

(As long as she leaves the cookies alone long enough. They’re for Santa, Rosee, not for you!)

She’ll be seeing you soon Santa Claus . . .

Santa Watch 2018: Day 16

Day 16, and Rosee’s after a new tail.

Don’t worry, she’s still looking out for Santa’s, but she’s pretty sure she knows where to get some confidential information on St. Nick’s whereabouts.

She’s positive the squirrels know something. You see, those squirrels are constantly running circles around her at the local parks. They’re everywhere – jumping in trees, and scampering around in bushes!

She’ll sniff out those squirrels!

And you know what? Those squirrels must know a pair of chipmunks, who know some ducks, who are good friends with a certain mouse. A mouse that gets around, and knows how to make wishes come true. Surely the mouse knows something about Santa Claus.

Rosee’s even got Simon in on the hunt this time – searching the trees!

The squirrels will talk, Santa Claus, the squirrels will talk . . .
