 In case anyone wasn't following me on Instagram, May I introduce the beautiful Miss Lily.

She's a rescue from a local shelter/foster group, and she's pretty much the best dog ever.

Very shy but VERY snuggly and sweet. She'll walk by your side on a leash, and won't tug when she sees a squirrel. We haven't heard a peep out of her since bringing her home. Basically, my ideal dog... so long as she's okay once Mr. Finn the Cat gets here in April.

So excited to be welcoming this gorgeous little girl into our tiny family! It's our final piece of the Austin puzzle: Must Love Dogs. We're one step closer to being true Austinites now!

Also, it's beyond adorable to see my 6'5, heavily-tattooed, manly-man fiance talking cutesy talk to the dog.

I'm already in love.

So, you know, I might take a while to get back on the recipe track here. Gotta learn how to be a dog mom and all. And unpack all my stuff into this apartment.

And don't worry, I'm still a Crazy Cat Lady at heart, just with Dog Person tendencies now... haha!


  1. She is so sweet! I love when tough guys turn into softies around animals and babies :)

  2. im so glad that she found a forever home. we knew she was special when we discovered her with her puppies under our konex building one cold november day. i truly hope u enjoy her...she does bark but it was to protect her babies...i would have kept her and all the puppies...but with my 5 already...the right thing to do was to call a rescue....millie abernathy office manager..performance motors killeen tx....

    1. Thank you so much for rescuing her and her puppies! We are so happy to have her :)

    2. please keep us posted on her....once u gain her trust she will transition well...all mine are rescues and all are wonderful dogs....:))

    3. I definitely will! Keep an eye on this blog--I tend to post pictures of my cat a lot (cat arrives in April, we weren't able to bring him with us when we first moved to Texas--we hope he and Angel/Lily get along!), and I know that it will be no different with the dog, I definitely will be posting pictures frequently. :)

      My instagram also will have frequent pictures! and my fiance's instagram at

  3. awww, what a cutie! yay pets :) and rescue pets especially!
