I can’t stop laughing over Bella. HAHA!

Do you remember last year when my family tried to make me dress up like Spiderman and Lily was a cow?  Good times.

10 Things We Love About Jack {A Guest Post}

10 things we love about Jack

Hi! It’s me, Lily. I’m here today doing a guest post on Jack’s blog.

He did a nice post about 10 things he loves about me, so I snuck onto his blog today to write a post about what we love about him.

Jack the Goldendoodle Smile

1) Jack is cute. I mean…you already knew that. But seriously, how could we not love this face.

Jack and Lily Nap

2) He takes naps with me.

Jack the Goldendoodle's Poses

3) He’ll stop at nothing to be comfy and doesn’t care how ridiculous he looks.

4) He is a big scaredy cat. He tiptoes in risky situations and has to be picked up and carried sometimes. Jack teaches me a lot of things, but I try to teach him to be more brave.

Jack the Goldendoodle in a Timeout

5) He knows when enough is enough. Sometimes he goes a little crazy barking at funny business outside, and he knows right away when mom talks to him that he needs to calm himself down with a timeout in the bathroom. He goes right in there all by himself.

Jack the Goldendoodle Lapdog

6) He doesn’t let his size stop him from being the cuddly lapdog he wants to be.

Jack the Goldendoodle Mischief

7) He gets into mischief at least once a day. But he knows that as long as he’s cute and flashes a little smile, he’ll make my family laugh.

Jack the Goldendoodle Jumping

8) He’s an athlete. He jumps, twists, and turns in the craziest ways.

9) He adventures with me and always leads the way since I’m smaller. Jack always wants to be in the FRONT of the pack when we go on walks. Even though he’s a scaredy cat, he wants to be in control in case there’s any funny business up ahead.

Goldendoodle Puppy

10) He presses his head on his family when he wants to feel safe. I wasn’t alive yet, but when my family was picking out a puppy, the reason they picked Jack was because he pressed his head on them when they held him. They loved him right away, just like I loved him right away when we first met! 

We love you Jack!


Jack Goldendoodle Mac and Cheese Ball

The other night my human brother Luke brought home some fried mac and cheese balls leftover from his dinner at a restaurant. He casually set the container down for a moment, not realizing that the container was  dangerously close to the edge of the counter. I saw the opportunity and realized my nose could easily nudge the container from the counter to the floor. I couldn’t resist. I flung my snout up there and the next thing I knew, the container was right where I wanted it.

Needless to say, I was delighted to see that the mac and cheese balls were also rolling out onto the floor–within reach of my lips. I then took a quick look around to my left, and looked to my right. No one was around to witness what I was about to do. I snatched up one (or three) of those delectable cheese balls…and let me tell you, I LIKED IT. Until later that night, that is…when my tummy hurt. That’s when I felt some slight regret. But would I do it again?


I share my bones.

Sometimes it’s hard to share.

Especially when it comes to delicious, meaty bones.

But I’m learning!

It is much better when we each have our own.

The thing is, she always wants the one I have…

So sometimes I’ll switch places with her. I prefer to avoid conflict.

I wasn’t born yesterday.

Lily thinks she can take whatever she wants. She wants everything I have.

She took the toy I was playing with right before my mom started filming us.

At first, I was miffed that she took my toy.

But then, I had an idea.

I tricked Lily and got my toy back! TAKE THAT!

Lily Needs Her Manners.

Lily! No. It’s not good manners to sit on the table. Or in mom’s driftwood wreath.
