November 1: The Perfect Day for Flowers and .....


Today I woke up with a few things on my mind.

My first goal was to put together a flower arrangement from my yard so I could join 


Fresh flowers in the house are such a treat and mine are still pretty in the yard.


Something else has been bugging me though....

I've been stalking this dog on the animal shelter website for the last month. 

She had 5 puppies and they've just now all been adopted.


So...I went and got her.

Meet Ladybelle. That's what they called her at the shelter.

We are calling her Belle.

She comes to us spayed and microchipped.

She's had her shots.

And every good habit you could think of, she's already learned.


We are already completely in love with her!!

Congratulations on your new family member!

I love sweet Belle!! She's a beauty! How sweet of you to adopt her. She's one lucky girl. :) That's one of the cutest doggie faces I've ever seen. How is she getting along with your kitty? I love your lantern in the first pic too. :) The first thing I thought of this morning was to say the word "rabbit" out loud. Have you ever heard that if you say "rabbit" on the first day of the month, you'll have good luck the whole month long? I really think it works. :)

Oh, Belle is precious. My Dad had dogs like her and they were so smart and easy to train. You'll have fun! Pretty flowers, too! Hugs!

How exciting!

Shots, microchip and manners - you are all set.

She is so cute and I know you will LOVE her.

Happy@Home said...

Bless your sweet heart for providing a happy home for Belle. Amazing how quickly we can fall in love with them esp. when they are already trained.
She sure is cute.
Your flowers are very pretty too.

She's a cutie!! So glad you adopted her. That's how we got Corey. My daughter had been looking at him for about a month on an adoption site and went specifically to get him. He's a handful but he's such a joy too!

Audrey said...

Beautiful dog. I am sure she will bring you many joyful days and she is lucky to have you adopt her.
Blessings,

Belle lives up to her name. She is beautiful! Congrats on your new family member. How wonderful that you got her from a shelter.

Good for you! I'm all for rescuing pets. Our golden, Millie was a rescue. She is the best dog I could imagine. I'm pretty sure she is extra appreciative and knows how very lucky she is. Congratulations!

Shon said...

Oh, she looks like our Scooby!! We rescued him from Ratbone's Rescue in Charlotte, NC a few years ago. He is our joy!! So sweet..distant cousins.

Enjoy Belle!!

Liz Hockamier said...

I LOVE that you couldn't stop thinking about this lovely lady and you just went and got her! :) I bet she thinks she is living the high life. All 3 of our kitties are rescue animals. They are the best!

Love your sweet little arrangement too. Looks great with the lantern!
Thank you for sharing your post at Fresh-Cut Friday!

What a cutie!

DownTheLaneWithDaisy said...

Hi, I just checked out your blog, cute by the way. Did you decorate bocce balls or what are those balls in that glass container. I have a whole set and have been wracking my brain as to what to do with them. I love spheres, but don't have a ton of red and green, which is what bocce balls are. I'd love to know. Thanks, Eileen

The Refeathered Roost said...

Yay!!! I'm so glad you got her. What a lucky little lovey. By the way, love the lantern and flowers.

Laurie Ritchey said...

Oh Stacey, that face! Belle looks like a sweetheart, and how wonderful that she now has a good home with people who will care for her. I'm so glad you got her. Your fresh flowers are pretty. We don't have anything blooming in the yard (except Mums). laurie

Miss Belle is a beauty! So nice to catch up with you. Love what you did with the bonus room. All my favorite colors - makes me just grin! Love where your guest room is going too. Looking forward to seeing more of Miss Belle!

Melanie said...

Hi Stacey, it's nice to meet you! I'm visiting from Brenda's blog.

I hope that you will visit me on my blog and become a follower, as well.

That is so sweet. Brings a tear to my eye. We adopted a shelter dog last May. He is a great dog!

Just a little something from Judy said...

Congratulations on your new good friend's arrival! I am so happy for you! Love when they come trained and with manners.

Your flowers are beautiful! I can't find any outside around here.

Bless you for adopting her. Both our little babies, "Jake the Farm Dog" and "Molly, the Princess" were rescues too. I post about them on my facebook all the time. They are spoiled. Thank goodness Belle got a good home.
