Happy Birthday Blue!


It has been one year since we adopted Blue! Time sure does fly! But what would I have done without him during this difficult year. He has been a blessing to our family and has provided so many laughs, smiles and kisses! It is crazy to think of where he has come in a year, from hiding in the bathroom to now following me around! He sure does love his new family! Today we celebrate his 5th birthday. He might get spoiled and get a bowtie. Do you remember Blue’s story? See the post when we got him and a few months later! He has been through a lot of fun times in the Spalding Family! Blue has even taught us a few things, simple really. Things like love, relaxation and patience!

Today we celebrate Blue, the silliest dog that we love to the moon and back! You’re my boy Blue!

You’re my boy Blue!


one month with bluetick

This weekend was 5 weeks since we adopted the sneaky, smart, lovable boy Blue. It is absolutely amazing how much he has come around in 5 short weeks from the first few days. Read about his first days here.

As of today, Blue has officially seen the whole house, including watching the UK game tonight. In between commercials he has stolen my 10 year old pink piggie slippers and managed to pull the eye off. Then as I wear them and have them next to me, he grabs one and runs off! What a stinker!


Blue follows both of us around and loves his walks. He could walk 4 times a day. I’m looking forward to our hiking adventures to come! Hopefully I can keep up with this silly dawg! He walks around whimpering when he is anxious and ready to walk. Or acts like a crazy person!



We’ve taught him to sit with his favorite treats, his doggie toothbrush treats. Now he walks around the house owning the place and sitting wherever he pleases. He is comfortable all over! So much different from the 72 hour bathroom hideout!


Here he is exhausted after one of our walks! He is in love with his new home! What a different life he must’ve had! Welcome home Blue!
