i’m coming off a blog hiatus to share a really important video…a video that has the potential to open people’s minds and hearts. snooty giggles is the official adopter of the colella family and we couldn’t be more thankful for the amazing beings they've added to our life. shining a light on special needs animals shines a light on all beings that are “different” and that can only lead to more compassion all around. please take a moment to read the backstory on the video and then view it. because...

plus 1

about 3 months ago (i really need to get this blogging thing together) i came across a wire-haired terrier posted on the snooty giggles facebook page. we had lost wilson about 2 months earlier and my terrier defenses were at a very low point. i tried to put him out of my mind for a few days but finally sent shawn a text to find out his story. snooty giggles ended up with pow because a cherry eye had him slated for euthanasia at the shelter he was in…it was only after taking him into the program...

last friday we helped wilson pass out of this life. it was time and we were at peace with the decision knowing that it was the best thing for him. somehow i convinced myself that all those things would make it easier. somehow i convinced myself that it wasn’t tragic so i would miss him but i would be okay – i would survive. somehow i convinced myself that i’m like a professional at dog loss at this point and i would be okay. even though i’m a person who gets sad when i reach a book’s end...

a few weeks ago we decided to foster another dog for snooty giggles, asprey beach. she’s a 7-year-old french bulldog who had recently been through some traumatic changes and she pulled quite hard at my heart strings. in probably the span of a month or so she was hit by a car and had a leg amputated, her owner died and then the family or friends dropped her rather unceremoniously at a shelter in kentucky. fortunately snooty giggles came to her rescue and started her on her new life. we were...

the descent

by | Thursday, July 24, 2014 |

about 6-8 weeks ago wilson seemed to plunge into complete confusion and old age overnight. he was no longer able to get around the house on his own, when we called to him he clearly heard it but always moved in the opposite direction and he kept circling and running into walls. because of his total blindness running into things and not always knowing where he is can be commonplace but this was extreme and very sudden. wil spent many years on prednisone due to his immune mediated disease so my...
