Gotcha! | Seersucker Sass

Tuesday, September 15, 2015


Today's a really happy day in my little family - it's Franny's "Gotcha" Day!  A year ago today, C and I welcomed a sometimes sweet, sometimes sassy little Beagle and Blue Heeler mix into our apartment and hearts.

Francis loves digging through the garbage, hiding potato chips throughout the apartment, and laying on the couch watching cable television.  (She doesn't enjoy Netflix nearly as much.)  She's surprisingly silent for a little beagle baby, and only howls when she needs food or a potty break.  She's a 40 pound cuddle bug, and we're so glad that she's ours.

If you're considering adding a four legged family member, I highly recommend adopting.  You can't put a price tag on happiness, but I'm a firm believer Franny is the best $100 I've ever spent.  The highlight of my day is coming home, letting her out of her condo (aka the crate that has a quarter of the square footage of my apartment), and opening the bedroom door so that she can roll around on the bed.

It's hard to tell who rescued who.

Do you have any animal family members?  I would love to hear about them!



PS - For more Franny photos and posts, check out this post about her adoption and this fun Franny Friday post!

  7. Franny is so sweet, although I have to say I prefer Netflix to cable so I'm really questioning her judgement on that one (: I agree that adopting a pet is the BEST money you can ever spend, there is nothing like the unconditional love of a dog!

  8. I love love love this post! I wish I could have a dog, but it's just not practical in my life at this time. Thanks for sharing and give your little cute a treat from me ;)

  11. She is so sweet! I adopted my dog from the pound about two months ago. His name is Koda and it was the best decision I ever made. And Franny is adorable!

    Love Always,

  12. The sweetest! I got my kitty from our local shelter 7 years ago, and it was one of the best decisions ever! Adopt don't shop, for life.

  13. Aww you and Franny are the perfect pair. I'm sure she is so happy to have you as her dog-mom.

  14. Ahhhh Francis is too cute! I don't have any pets yet, but once my schedule settles down I totally want to adopt a dog! I love them!

  16. Such a cutie!

  17. While I didn't rescue a pup, I did rescue a cat...and as sad as it is, sometimes, he's the only one that can brighten up my day. A true family member for sure! x Nicole |

  18. This little story warms my heart! My C & I had two rescue babies, Whiskey and Bullet-for the last two years. Sadly, last month Whiskey died unexpectedly and then Bullet went missing. But I still am a firm believer that dogs enrich our lives and make us better humans & adopting is the way to go! Give Francis a hug from me!
