Happy Halloween 2013!

Happy Halloween everyone!  I hope everyone is having a great and safe halloween night!  I for one, am working! yay.  But it could be worse!  Tonight at work is actually going by pretty fast and for that, I am very grateful.  And there are also an over abundance of treats and food and treats and chocolate and cake here.  I had a bite of baklava and this little pumpkin cookie (which was divine) but other than that, I have been good!  🙂

We did dress up the furbabies for a minute this afternoon for a photo op though.  They looked so cute in their costumes even if they didn’t think so.  I love when I texted my brother the pictures, his reply was “Why?”.  Blah!  Stop hating lil bro!

Have a fabulous night everyone!photo 4 photo 5 photo photo 1 photo 2 photo 3

Pickles!

I was only supposed to foster this cutie over a weekend but he ended up staying for 2 weeks with us and I am so glad!

This is Pickles, an 11 year old papillon, recently rescued from a puppy mill.  Almost all his teeth were extracted due to poor care so his cute tongue is always hanging out.

Today, I dropped him off to a new foster home.  I wish you luck Pickles!!!  I miss you already!

Valentines Day <3

Valentines Day 2013 is our first Vday as a married couple. Husband wasn’t here on the actual day but we were able to celebrate it today with lunch at one of our favorite restaurants, Masu, at the Mall of America and also with a home made dinner by yours truly.

He had beef udon for lunch and I had tempura soba. I also had this shrimp tempura niku-man and it was possibly one of the best things I have ever had. Of course, I had to take pictures ❤

If you are ever in the Twin Cities, I highly recommend Masu! So yum! And it was perfect weather for something hot.

For dinner, we decided on homemade mushroom pesto pasta so that we could stay home and just hang out and of course, hang out with the fur babies ❤

 

But first… wine! Cheap merlot from Trader Joes 😛

Oh p.s. Bun says hello:)20130216-231017.jpg

bun bun <3

I just realized that I don’t think I’ve ever introduced my third pet– my bunny- “Bun Bun”!!!

I adopted him several years ago from a local humane society that was closing due to financial problems 😦

He’s cute, adorable, and the biggest glutton ever! He can eat anytime of the day! When he’s in his cage and he hears me coming, he jumps to the front of the Cage and jumps up waiting for me to give him food. Fat bunny 🙂

Anywhoo.. Here are some pictures of the cutest bunny ever 🙂

D.O.G.S. benefit!

Last Wednesday, the organization that I am a part of, Dogs of A Good Society, had our very first private benefit.  It was a small benefit with close friends and family members to get our feet wet and to celebrate being an incorporated organization.  The support that we received from our friends and family surpassed my expectation.  I am so happy that so many people believe in us and in our mission to help animals in need.  What an awesome feeling knowing that people support us!

We had our benefit at YUM! bakery in Minneapolis and we couldn’t have found a better place for our first public event.  It was small and intimate just like we wanted and the staff were so helpful and so nice.  It seemed like they were all animal lovers as well!  And the food… YUM is right!  We had 2 different types of cakes and caramel bars, chocolate bars, etc.  So so good!  I can’t wait to go back and try more of their food.

I can’t wait till the board members meet again and start talking about next steps we should be taking with this organization.  I am so happy to be part of a group that sincerely cares about animal welfare and rights like I do!

If you would like to support D.O.G.S , even if it’s just 50 cents, there is a donation button on the right side of my blog 🙂

And here are some pictures I took from the event 🙂

some of our guests enjoying the sweets!

Dogs of A Good Society

I am part of a brand new organization whose mission is to assist animals in need.  More specifically, we want to help local rescue groups here in the Twin Cities rescue more animals  by offering help, resources, etc.  We are going to have our first benefit tomorrow and I cannot be more excited.  It’s a private event with close friends and family just to get our feet wet and celebrate the fact that we are incorporated.  Of course, we are working on also getting non-profit status.

More information can be found on our blog: Dogs of A Good Society
We are also working on our website and I will post that once it is up and running.
I am so excited to be part of new group whose mission is to help animals!

If you would like to support our organization, I have posted a donate button in my blog.  If you can donate 50 cents, a dollar, anything, we would greatly appreciate it!
