As you all probably know... 

I am the proud owner of a puppy named Zoey!

She is 5 months old and is a Golden Doodle.
Yes, that is half Golden Retriever and half Poodle.

She is the newest addition to our home and we are loving the heck out of her.

I am enjoying Saturday morning puppy school (Petsmart)
and am 
so pleased that training 
Zoey has not been too much of a stuggle.

She already knows how to do an array of commands!

Since becoming a part of the dog owner world
one thing that has been on my mind a lot.

I have to admit, as a non-dog owning citizen 
I never really paid any attention 
to who was and who was not picking up their poop.  
But, now that I am and I am out walking in the grass 
dodging it, 
I have to say it grosses me out!

I can not understand why people are so inconsiderate to not 
pick their dogs poop up!

I sit on my balcony and watch the people from our condo complex 
walk their dogs and walk away from the poop like they can not be bothered.


This is what I think of the people who can't be bothered to PICK UP THEIR PET'S POOP!

How can someone own an animal and not care enough about others to 
not pick up after it????

I was talking to the vet the other day and not only is it gross to step in...
BUT, dog poop is hazardous!

It carries worms that other dogs can easily catch.
 & it is dangerous for children. 

Just think of the poop on your shoe (or) in/on a dogs paw being tracked 
in your house on the rugs 
and oops... 
baby on a blanket on the floor catches something.


IDK... people are just silly to me!


My message for the day is:

Do yourself, your dog and your neighbors a favor!

*they can't do it for you!

Okay, I have to tell you about 
~ Style Swapping ~

I have a friend who hosts Style Swaps 
that has been telling me about the concept for quite some time now.

She is hosting one that is literally tomorrow...

Here are the details:

June 10, 2012 
Baldwin Park, Orlando, FL 

Space is limited, you must buy your tickets in advance!

Here's how it works:
Do you have a closet full of clothes but "nothing to wear?" Before you spend your hard earned cash, come to our Style Swap!
How does it work? Go through your own closet, pull out the clothes you no longer wear and bring them over so you can exchange them for other amazing finds!
The following are guidelines for those of you who have never attended a Style Swap:
1. Please arrive on time. Drop-off and networking is between 1:00-2:00pm. The Swap will start promptly at 2:00pm and will stay open until 3:30pm.
2. Bring up to 10 items to trade. You don't have to limit your swaps to clothing; bring accesories, shoes and even unopened cosmetics and perfumes.
3. Only clothes that are washed, pressed and hung will be accepted. There is no need for them to be dry-cleaned.
4. Items will be inspected. 
Don't bring anything stained, ripped or outdated. In other words, don’t bring anything you wouldn't lend to your best friend. 
5. Please don’t bring items that should not be swapped for hygienic reasons. Items like underwear or swimwear should not be brought, unless they still have the tags on. 6. Every item will have the same value, this is why it is so important that you are detached from all your fashion items and happy to see them go to a new home. 7. There will always be a chance that you might not find anything that you like, want or maybe fit in. If that is the case, you can always choose items for someone else or donate your items to the Harbor House Shelter. 8. We will supply full-length mirrors and shopping bags for your convenience.9. Bring your business cards, this is a great opportunity to network with other great women in the area! 10. Bring any old cell phones and accesories you may have. We will be collecting them to help Harbor House's 911 Cell Phone Drive for Domestic Violence Survivors. An old cell phone can save a life.

Imagine that! You can leave with new outfits, help a women's shelter and meet lots of other fun, savvy shoppers in the process!
Space is limited, you must buy your tickets in advance!
This event is for adults only.

Don't panic...You can still come.
