1: A dog is a bundle of love wrapped in fur." | SCOOTER | CONNER
3: Hazel-y Wazel-y | I found Hazel one day when I stopped by the Pulaski County Humane Society in Little Rock. Sometimes I would stopped by to play with the animals in my spare time. This particular day I was feeling sad, so I drove to the Humane Society to see some furry friends, knowing they would cheer me up. I didn't have plans to bring a kitty home that day but I couldn't take my eyes off this little Calico who was full of spunk. I adopted her that day in 2005, brought her home and soon after, named her Hazel Frances. Hazel is for her hazel-colored eyes and Frances is for my grandmothers, who were both named Frances: Frances Thomas Walker and Frances Louise Ritchie. She continues to bring joy to our lives daily! :)
4: A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself." - Josh Billings
5: My heart belongs to my MaMa | I have always loved Cocker Spaniels. In the fall of 2007 I was really wanting to get one. A co-worker had a friend who was selling a 9 month old Cocker Spaniel mix puppy, so I decided to go meet him. Even though, I immediately fell in love with this dog, I decided to take him home for a "trial night" to see how he fit into our home. It didn't take long for me to realize this dog was already HOME. We named him Conner because it is a strong Scottish name. Conner is a strong alpha male who is also a good cuddler. He is also very much a mama's boy. :)

10: Scoots-a-roni | Scoots our rescue dog
11: Soon after we bought a new house in 2009, we knew we wanted to foster dogs through the Central Arkansas Rescue Efforts or C.A.R.E. This is an organization in Little Rock that places rescue dogs in good homes. When we took Scooter in, it was in hopes to help find him a forever home. When we saw how well Scooter and Conner got along, we knew that WE were to be his forever home and not just a foster home. We kept the name that C.A.R.E. had given him because it was also the name of the dog I had as a child - SCOOTER. Most of the time we call him Scoots. Scooter is part black Lab and part Border Collie, one of the smartest breeds of dog. Scooter is quick to learn and eager to please. He is a daddy's boy who has problems holding his licker! :)
