Allow me to introduce to you...

I can't believe I've blogged a whole 14 times without a post devoted to my two favorite creatures in the entire world. Allow me to introduce you to Mattingly 'the Heartbreak Kid' and his little sister, Macie 'the Maniac.' These two love bugs are the sole reason I am undeniably and unapologetically a 100% crazy dog lady.

Mattingly and Macie

Look at them! No really, look. Aren't they two of the dog gone cutest things you've ever laid eyes on? Who doesn't love a smushed face dog? Interestingly enough, up until we got Mattingly (two weeks to the day after Paul and I were married), I owned cats my whole life. I was not a dog person. Well, the times were a changin' and so did I.  I am forever a dog lover.

 Mattingly is a 3 year old Boston Terrier who was hands down, the cutest puppy I've ever seen.

He's as smart as dogs come and can learn a command in just a few minutes. But, even more than smart, Mattingly is as stubborn as a mule. If he doesn't want to do something, well, then it ain't happening. The exception to this is rule is when food is involved, then he's at your beck and call. Pretty much, Mattingly is the manifestation of me in dog form.

 Then, there's Macie, who we met when she was two weeks old. She sold herself to us when she crawled up  the back of my neck and fell asleep. This was the beginning of velcro dog, as she has not left my side since.

Paul wanted a big dog, and narrowed it down to a boxer. Little did we know, our "big dog" would only grow to 43lbs, soaking wet. Tiny for her breed. What Macie is lacking in size, she makes up with love. Admittedly, she's not the brightest, but I've never met a dog with more love to give than my Macie. If you choose not to love her, well, she won't have it. There is no choice with Macie as she does not believe in personal space. You will love her and cuddle with her, like it or not.

So here they are; the two dog loves of my life. Woman's best friends. They're two rambuctious, hyper, jumping all over the place monsters, but they're mine and I love them to pieces.


  1. Not that Mattingly isn't cute, but I am sooooo in love with Macie! She is definitely one of the cutest dogs I've seen. I never really had an opinion about boxers...I always thought they were cute but that was it. Then when I saw Macie, I sent Nick a picture of her and said, "I WANT ONE JUST LIKE HER!" Luckily, he too thought she was too stinkin' cute and now we plan to get a brindle boxer when we're married :)

  2. Do it! I am absolutely in love with her. She makes my life a lot better. I love Mattingly, but there is something very special about Macie. We will only have boxers from now on because of her. I hope you can meet her one day!
