Fridays With #POTUS Ellie

PUPPY OF THE UNITED STATES. But first, a little something unrelated to the rest of this post.  I haven’t really gotten political here. Other than a few Tweets here and there, I’ve generally kept my feelings about the current political climate and state of affairs off my blog — not because it’s not all really important right […]

Fridays With Ellie: What The World Needs Now Is Dogs, Cute Dogs

I mentioned in my last post that I’ve been really struggling with my sleep lately. I think I can pinpoint a handful of reasons that’s happening, including my inability to find the perfect pillow for my ever-changing sleep positions, plus the fact that 60-pound Ellie likes snoozing on top of me. But I also think (fine, know) it’s because […]

Fridays With Ellie: The Healthiest One In The Bunch

First, Ellie had surgery. Then I got food poisoning. Now Brian seems to have it. Who wants to come visit West New York?! We’ve been a rotating rough bunch over here lately, but Ellie bounced back from her surgery beautifully, and I’m feeling 90 percent well today.

She’s as happy and active and psyched about life as normal. (So thinking it was […]

Fridays With Ellie: Road-Tripping, Swimming, & Race Spectating!

What day is it? Friday! What does that mean? Fridays With Ellie! Our little monster has been living her best life these days. She’s been to Washington, D.C., where she got to hang out with her puppy cousin, Ranger, and took a road trip to New Hampshire, where she had so much fun with her […]

Fridays With Ellie: One Month In West New York

This week has felt very, very long. Nothing remarkable came my way, just the usual work work work work work (TM Rihanna) and lots of writing with some conference calls and events thrown in. I don’t know why I’m so tired lately. Brian says it’s allergies. I say it’s because I’ve been eating too much sugar. […]

Fridays With Ellie: The Happiest Puppy Around

This has been a week, I’ll tell ya. Everything is fine and dandy and jazz hand-y, it’s just been a bit busy and a lot stressful. (Telltale signs of stress, no matter how much I try to deny it and claim I’m just so totes excitingly busy: My sexy scalp psoriasis is flaring in a major […]
