  •   paigeknudsen @browneyedgirlygirl oh gosh thats awesome!!!!! Do I remember her name? She was in a different group from earlier this summer maybe? 🏻 2d
  •   browneyedgirlygirl Yes, I think she came with the "Freedom" group! They one of their beloved Goldens too earlier this year. So they are over the moon at adding Victory to their household! They live on the lake so she's a water dog now!! We met (Cheryl Wheeler) to drop their son off to her last night (late night pick up from a party for the kids!) and she had both Goldens in the car! They took up the entire back of the car! Hilarious! 1d

paigeknudsen Hey friends, fall is just around the corner🏻 & I wanted to let you know my calendar is filling up pretty quickly. The last couple years we get a cool evening and all of sudden there's a mad rush for photo session slots! Website link in bio. #fallsessions 4d

paigeknudsen We've had two perfect days with our new fella. He seems to be the perfect mix of resilient playful puppy & loyal companion. He's followed me from room to room, napped at my feet while I worked, and gone bonkers when Caroline played ball with him. We're over the moon in love! Being smitten with his temporary name that @adoptagoldenatl gave him and in keeping with the cowboy theme, allow me to introduce you to Duke! We'll call him Duke & use Cowboy for a nickname. #cowboyDUKEtherescuedog #johnwaynewouldsurelyapprove 4d

paigeknudsen Hey Caroline, remember when you told your mama (who doesn't let doggies on the furniture) that you wanted to have a dog that would be waiting for you on your bed when you got home from school ? Well look what I just found.... #cowboytherescuedog #imnotkidding #ididntposehim 4d

paigeknudsen Sharing a breath taking parent moment #ontheblog today. @emilyaknudsen I learn much about how to #lovewell from YOU. The following are her words from her post last evening. May we all love others well today!
"these past two weeks have been some of the most stressful weeks, trying to do everything, but also not trying to burn myself out.
however, I have been surrounded by so much love and encouragement.
I have been reminded of so many important truths…..
to be a leader, it’s okay to not be perfect,
to be vulnerable, to love others well,
but most importantly I have been reminded that “I am loved”.
I am loved always.
I have seen what love really means in the simplest of ways.
I am thankful to be loved by such fruitful and faithful friends that push me to be my best.
I am loved by mentors who see strengths in me that I hadn’t seen for a long time,
and want a life lived to the fullest for me.
but, most importantly- I have seen the love by a God who’s love is unconditional.
I am so blessed to already be surrounded by girls who have poured into me so much
and have taught me what genuine love is.
after all…
to love well, is to know what real love is."

paigeknudsen He's not by my side today but he'll be forever in my heart. #rememberingBrinkley #youreagoodboy #nationaldogday #Brinkley (a fave pic from this past fall) 5d
  •   sefw3 Oops..didn't finish....current Boxer, Maverick, not doing well. Grateful that the joy they bring us over-compensates for the grief when we lose them. Love Cowboy...and the name since we are Dallas fans! I miss Brinkley too. 5d
  •   tenniskat Love you, Brinkley! xoxoxoxo 5d
  •   tenniskat @sefw3 we are a boxer family too. Sorry to hear about your Maverick. 5d
  •   desireemisha Just discovered your account. I lost my sweet 12 year old golden Maggie this summer to kidney failure, so I am identifying with every one of your posts about how beyond difficult it is to say goodbye and not knowing how time can still go on. I'm in tears. I am so sorry for your loss, but so happy you found Cowboy and can give him a lifetime of love!! 5d
  •   browneyedgirlygirl And in your heart he'll stay @paigeknudsen 5d
  •   sefw3 Thanks tenniskat. Diagnosis today is spinal stenosis. Boxers are special. 5d

paigeknudsen Yesterday I introduced you to our temporary foster, Elvis. (I believe he's still available for adoption through @adoptagoldenatl ). This morning I want you to meet "cowboy"~ the newly adopted member of our family!!! He's one of the rescued dogs from turkey. He's 3 years old , very playful & affectionate. He should fill out to about 80 pounds 🏻 and loved our first jog last evening!! His coat is a little jacked up because he came over from turkey with a little infection and some scabs from what we believe are bites from other dogs, but before his "trim" his hair is long white and gorgeous!! We're over the moon! Hope to make the final decision on his name tonight. The rescues were each given the cutest American themed names for their transport and foster. Yall go check @adoptagoldenatl as there's about 2 dozen more of these sweet goldens that need a home! #cowboytherescuedog (ps. You're welcome to throw some name options that go with cowboy into the pot) 6d

paigeknudsen So... Our little foster wants to apologize to the neighbors for his middle of the night and early morning brief barking sesh. Meet "Elvis". The organization that's rescued these sweet goldens from turkey ( see previous posts) gave each of them a super cute american themed temporary name. He's 18 months and super sweet. And tiny. He's gonna be a petite little guy. #bigdecisions 7d
  •   jkata1 He looks exactly like our Jake. Hope he starts sleeping through the night soon! 6d
  •   sashabrodeur I heard a new puppy does help the process. But they are never the same type of personality and so hard when the first one was nearly perfect. At least that was our experience. Still...it does help!! Just saying. Love ya Paigey! 6d
  •   staceylmeredith We have almost 2 boy that looks almost like him. Samson is his name ...small at 65lbs 6d
  •   andemw Elvis looks sweet. Brinkley is smiling down from above.....you know he is! 6d
  •   gina0228 The first poodle that we adopted was named Elvis 6d
  •   jenniferkershner What a sweet puppers Paige and such a lovely thing to do. I sure wish I was close enough to take one in too. Poor babies! 6d
  •   betweenyouandmesigns God bless him. And his name. 6d
  •   giosmama2626 What a cutie! I'm so glad you all have him. 6d

paigeknudsen It's been quite a day - I'll share about our little foster later but first-- Emily has a terrifying wreck today on the highway a couple hours from our home. We believe the tread came loose from her back tire causing her to lose control of the car-- driving down the highway!!!-- the car went off into a ditch. She wasn't hurt. We're betting the car is totaled. I keep thinking over and over how the lord TOTALLY protected Emily. Today could have ended completely different. My goodness. My mind can't actually wrap around all of it.... Just so very very grateful ️. @emilyaknudsen 1w
  •   ellemmgee So scary! Thankful she is ok! 1w
  •   brantleem Thankful she is ok! 1w

  •   augustfields So thankful she is okay paige!!! 1d

paigeknudsen Hundreds and hundreds of golden retrievers, once a status symbol in Turkey & now not so much,have been abandoned. It's believed there are up to 600 . The rescue group we adopted #Brinkley from has been running rescue missions this summer. Late last night 3 dozen landed here in Atlanta safe and sound. We may be going to pick up a sweet fella to foster this afternoon if all goes as planned . They have their own Facebook page / turkey golden retrievers saved by AGA if you wanna follow their story. This is one of their pics of these sweet guys before they boarded the plane. Could your heart burst or could your heart burst? . #adoptagolden #turkeydogs 1w
