  •   croftsbend Good boys! 1d
  •   andreamful Gaaaah they are so cute! Vizslas are second on our puppy list and these photos are seriously making my husband and I reaaaally think we should just go ahead and get one of these babies. Are you doing obedience classes? 1d
  •   mikasasucasa @andreamful they are wonderful dogs - they will change your life! (I'm just a little bit excited about Vizslas ) we never did obedience classes with Boone, just spent a lot of time with him, working with him, exercising him, etc... They are incredibly smart, fast learners and are so excited to do anything for you! If you ever want to email me, with any questions at all, please do!! I wouldn't recommend a V for anyone/everyone - they are the kind of dog that really has to fit your lifestyle but when they do! It's the greatest 1d
  •   andreamful Thank you so much!! I was thinking about DM you, but thought maybe I would wait until after Christmas just in case you are busy. We are visiting the family from which we would buy from (she is from Hungary and has had Vizslas since she was 15 so she is a big fan... She is in her 60s now) and we have done tons and tons of research on the breed. It seems like they need tons of exercise which is fine with us... Just not sure what "tons" means. One long walk a day? Two? Running wild for an hour? We can chat more after our visit with the dog lady (next week) if that's ok with you 1d
  •   mikasasucasa @andreamful email me!! I would LOVE to chat with you about our experience 1d
  •   imakeshinylove Ahhhh! Never stop. 1d
  •   lazyallison This is amazing 1d
  •   uncommongrace They make me so happy. 24h

mikasasucasa My son's school is working with an area homeless shelter this season and in addition to their handmade scarf effort, they have a clothing drive at school. This week, I made the rounds at some of my favorite thrift stores in search of good quality, warm winter coats + hats/scarves/gloves + sweaters. I washed everything - down coats, fleece jackets, etc and have a good sized donation to drop off this afternoon. I also went to Big Lots and the Dollar Store and was able to purchase other requested items rather inexpensively. (toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, deodorant, razors, shaving cream and chap stick are all very much appreciated items)
I wanted to share this with you, not for you to tell me how thoughtful or good of a person I am, but because it was SO EASY for me to do and it made me feel good to be able to do it. If even a couple of you are inspired to do something similar, great! Call your local shelter and ask how you can help. Remember those less fortunate this holiday season.

mikasasucasa The kid discovered the Cozy Cave today. Maybe he will sleep through the night tonight? 6d
  •   melissa9285 @mikasasucasa, we are fostering 6 puppies and even though they are cute and lovable it's been nights that I haven't slept well. One night I slept on the recliner in the living room next to their kennel, it wasn't too comfortable but I got 3 hrs of sleep. They are only 6 weeks and their mommy abandoned them 2 weeks ago, thankfully now they have been sleeping better and are on our schedule. 6d
  •   mikasasucasa @melissa9285 you're a saint! What a good thing you are doing for those dogs!! 6d
  •   melissa9285 @mikasasucasa thanks couldn't have done it with the help of my seven year old. I know that the day they go to a loving home everything we've done for them will be well worth. 6d
  •   mikasasucasa @melissa9285 you're a good mama! Raising a true animal lover 6d
  •   melissa9285 @mikasasucasa she sure is an animal lover, we have many pets at home right now and she can't get enough from all. Even though some aren't too amusing like her Betta fish or hermit crab but others like the puppies keep her busy all day. 6d
  •   susangarnercrafthouse Your a special person. Thank you for helping our furry friends. 6d
  •   croftsbend Oh man I hope so... 5d

  •   d1nski PS. How has Speck taken to him? 7d
  •   jodiesmodie @mikasasucasa so do vizslas chew a lot like labs? Thinking of getting one :) we already have a corgi fella 7d
  •   whatjessmade Such a cutie! 7d
  •   mikasasucasa @jodiesmodie they chew! Big on sticks and chew toys for sure... Boone might be an exception, but he's never chewed anything he wasn't supposed to. I'd say just really do your research on the breed. They are no doubt cute! But they aren't an "easy" dog if that makes sense. 7d
  •   mikasasucasa @d1nski haha aww I can totally see that! So speck is ok so far, he's been through this puppy thing before! He prefers Charlie when he's more mellow & in a snuggling kinda mood - not so much in a pouncing, playful kind of mood but speck is ok! He's going to really appreciate the break from Boone!! 7d
  •   modern_junkie Cute face!! 6d
  •   andreamful Oh, my. This is the sweetest puppy face I've seen in a long time!! 5d
  •   hulaseventy cutie! 2d

mikasasucasa I am the worst secret keeper in the history of secret keeping. If it's good, I can't help but share. But somehow, I held on to this secret for months. I'm rather impressed with myself This morning, I was finally able to surprise my family with this sweetheart boy.

Meet Charlie Brown.

mikasasucasa I'm a white lights kinda gal, but good grief do I have a special place in my heart for the big vintage colored bulbs. They remind me of my Pawpaw. 1w

  •   stonephox I'm a white lights girl too but my husband and kids love colored so we have both on our tree too. Haha 1w

  •   mikasasucasa @joymadison oh yeah girl, c7... c9... 1w
  •   susannacoleking Vintage c7 bulbs on my tree, but I grew up with white lights and I think they're lovely too (and then my mom was saying how my lights reminded her of the lights her parents had and so, the cycle of nostalgia continues). 1w
  •   erynnbi I love them both! So so pretty! 1w
