Ann's Resume



What a difference 14 months makes!

I'm pretty sure we haven't posted since December. Of 2014. So, yeah... A lot has happened. Here's a bit of it.

January 2015

We adopted a puppy(!!!) from Barks of Love in Orange County, CA. He was one of 6 of a litter, all with Christmasy names. He was Claus, and there was Rudy, Holly, Jolly, Stella, and Nick. They're chi-pits. Yes, that's a thing. 1/2 chihuahua, 1/2 pit bull.

His name is Fezzik, like the giant in The Princess Bride.
Claus' adoption pic. Would you just LOOK at that FACE!!!!

About a week after we got him. Already a good sitter!

Garrison and Amanda flew out for a vacation, and boy were their arms tired. ba-dum-pum.

On our drive back to TX, we stopped at the Grand Canyon.

Back in Austin. At Matt's house, Fezzik saw his first Bigfoot. They stared each other down for a few. I think Fezzik blinked first. But Bigfoot was totally poised to run away.
