New Tips

Wednesday night I gave myself a mani, since I was dyeing my hair. I always like to have my nails painted if I’m dyeing my hair otherwise the nails get stained. Ew. This is 2 coats of China Glaze Reggae to Riches. The picture is taken in natural light by a window with no flash.


I had a visitor doggie in my office today at work. My boss and his dog worked in my office, so I have a picture of his dog looking adorable.

And not to be outdone, here’s her majesty from earlier tonight, after I lavished her with attention and brushed her.

Phaedra is going to the vet tomorrow morning because we suspect it’s time for her next DOCP shot. I believe she hasn’t had a shot for 8 weeks, but I’ll be able to find out exactly once we’re at the vet. She’s in good health, but the past few days she’s had low energy. She’ll need her energy for the weekend as she’s having a puppy sleepover and I’ll be watching my friend Lindsey’s doberman, Honey. The two of them will have non-stop play time!

      Pretty color! That pup is so fluffy and just tiny. I'm use to big dogs, the bigger the better. It always surprises me how big Phaedra is, cause I don't see Standard Poodles ever or poodles at all for that but when I do they are always these little things. She just looks so soft and happy in all your pictures. Have a fun pup play date this weekend.

      Thank you :) Yeah the pom is about 10 lbs. Phaedra is about 41 lbs, but she's tall and thin, and really only looks big because of all her fur. Standard Poodles don't seem to be as common as the toys or minis but I really love bigger dogs and the mellowness that they have. Phaedra is no exception. I seriously think she's almost perfect, from her attitude, to her obedience, to her loving nature, her excellent watch dog ability, and her size. She's big enough that she has a deep scary bark and small enough that I can pick her up and she can take over my lap :)

      Awww puppy pics! I used to know someone in high school whose family bred standard poodles, and I never saw one before that but they're beautiful! Hers at that time was gray. Great dogs….

      Honestly, I think they're wonderful. I do think it sucks that they've got a genetic predisposition to Addison's Disease. We were shocked when Phaedra was diagnosed because there are no dogs in her line with it, and we did check.
