We'll Miss You Little Man

Some of you may have already heard - but for those of you who haven't... our little man Hank passed away on Friday night. Long story short he had choked and punctured a lung... passing on his own shortly after arriving at the vet. It's been a quiet weekend and we sure do miss the little man. He was only 10 months old and we had only had him for 6 of those. I know we won't be getting another any time soon, if at all - as he is the second one we had lost within the year. I'm just glad we had this time to get to know his devilish little personality and made everyday the best we could for him. His snores and grunts sure do leave the house feeling empty, but I know with the many health problems and visits to the vet, he will be able to run problem free now! RIP Little Man! <3

A Snow Day with Hankers

I was going to really do a post today called "I Could So Get Used to This..." you know... working from home. Don't tell anyone but I kinda worked in my jammers all day because it was a SNOW DAY! Usually I just take the day off but work is so hectic right now!

In real life I work in a marketing department and lets just say our largest trade show is less than three weeks away. That means I am on marketing overload and also going to Vegas for my third time very very soon! I know you're probably thinking - lucky her... but in reality I worked almost 80 hours in one week last year. And, when I got home I slept for 17 hours straight... it's exhausting!

Anyways, that's not the point of today's post. Today's post should be about Hank. So here are some pictures of his little snow adventure in the backyard today...

That's our little man... being all cute and stuff. He is so photogenic... I love him - most days! :o)

Just Some Rambling...

Today is one of those days. It's snowing and I'm bored. By the way, did you check out my new About Me page? More rambling... but it's worth it, I promise!

(Insert random picture of Hank.)
He loves his snow...

So, what else is new around the old town? The hubby and I debated becoming land lords for a mere three days, then we found out you need a whopping down payment on the house because it's for income. Damn you mortgage shenanigans... now we must save.

I had an epiphany the other day at work. Not a positive one... well it sorta is. Just depends on whether you're a half glass full type of person or a glass half empty. I'll tell you my thought and then you decide:
Working in the corporate world means your allowing someone else to live their dreams. They had a business idea and now I'm making it a reality for them. Boo corporate world! I want my dreams to come true not yours!
Okay, glass half full = I must work harder and harder and even harder than I am now to make my dreams a reality and have little laborers working for me, glass half empty = here I am making someone else's dream a reality - Nooooooooo! Rant. Over.

Oh, did I mention that I looked at how much it is to rent a store front. I know a real store. {dreaming}

Umm.. I think that is it. Well, besides that yesterday's winner still hasn't came forward. Where are you lucky number 5??  

Oh and did I mention it was snowing? But unfortunately the snow gods forgot to start early enough so I could have an adult snow day.

Yup that is it. Rambling over.

Happy err... Hump.... Day!

Meet Hank... The Tank.

Just a quick post - as promised, I have taken a few pictures of the new addition to the family. Everyone, meet Hank.

Hank is a purebred English Bulldog, 4 months old and full of wrinkles. His paws are gargantuan and don't let his cuteness fool you, he's the devil in disguise.

Just a puppy, and a light 28 lbs!!!, he is full of snores, grunts and moans. His raspy little bark comes out once in a while and he tends to stick his tongue out when he sleeps. Not to mention, he has the bulldogs greatest gift of being "stinky"...

And of course, he loves to play... and bite. He's just learning what hurts and he's getting better every day. Of course, he still grabs the odd pant leg as it walks by. And, he usually goes into complete craziness for about an hour every night, something the hubby refers to as witching hour in our house now.

This is Hank. He's a character and one that will keep us busy for a while. He's absolutely adorable and although he does the oddest things, like roll in his "potty" after he goes outside (yes that was tonight's reason for a second bath in 24 hours), we wouldn't trade him for the world. Although, we may consider lending him out to volunteering babysitters once in a while! It feels as if we may be up for a wild ride for the next few months. For now, he's snoring away at my feet by the island... so I may just slip away and have some quiet time...
