Victory: Photography Project — 86

Beginning in January 2014, I started a weekly photography project with my muse, Victory!  I will continue to share this project on the blog this year!  My goal is to document all of Victory’s changes, while preserving fleeting moments and memories, while capturing moments of our everyday.

Over the past weekend, we all went to Keeneland, a place that Doug has been wanting to visit for a while.  On the way to Keeneland, we stopped at Woodford Reserve, a local distillery.  Doug’s Mom also joined us on our visit to Keeneland.  We had gorgeous weather and Victory was a hit!  You can even see Victory making her picks, below!  Doug even made a little money on a race!  A few images from our time in Keeneland are shown below, and we hope to return next year!

Happy Wednesday!

We hope that you had a nice Easter!  The Easter Bunny visited Victory and gave her some toys, of course!  Now she has more toys to hoard!  We gave Victory a bath this weekend and her fur coat feels silky smooth and fluffy!  She looks great and her fur coat continues to grow in!  She is much more fluffy than when we first met Victory.  It is really difficult to believe that next month we will have had our fur girl for 2.5 years!  The time is really flying by quickly.

Happy Monday!

This is Victory just as we were starting our first long walk/ride in the Hound About around our neighborhood this year!  Victory loved it, but she looked a little contemplative, shown below, due to the fact that the builder’s construction workers were working in close proximity!  However, once we got going, she was so happy, popping her head through her little sun roof, like always!  I think we did over a six-mile walk together!  We hope that spring is on its way soon so that we are able to enjoy the outdoors together more!  I think we all have cabin fever!  This week has been particularly nice weather, and we enjoyed a few long walks and dinners together outside!  Hopefully, spring will arrive soon and stay here for good!

Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

Happy Monday!  This is how I am feeling today — tired, which is exemplified by our fur girl, Victory, shown below!  We had a good weekend and the weather was warm and beautiful here!  Yesterday we took Victory on a long walk, about five miles, in her Hound About, which she loved, of course!  Then, we took Victory out to lunch and to the pet store, where she picked out some new treats!  We all hope that spring comes soon!

Wishing you a productive and great day and week!

We’re having a nice long weekend and Victory had a great Valentine’s Day!  After all, she is our little Valentine!   She now has some more toys to hoard in her ‘hut’ and some cute bowls to eat her treats in!  A few images from this weekend are shown below!

Happy Monday!

We had a long snowy, blizzard weekend!  We are finally dug out after six hours of shoveling over the weekend.  Doug and I are both quite sore.  Victory helped “supervise” while she sat in the trunk of the SUV watching us work, while making sure that no strangers encroached on her territory!  Isn’t she just adorable!  We made our way to a “Blizzard Party” on foot at a neighbor’s house, which was fun!  In a way, it was kind of nice to be snowed in; it was very peaceful and we are getting caught up on some projects along with having a cozy extended weekend!  Although, we are glad to be done shoveling!

A few images from this weekend are shown below!

Happy Monday!

Happy New Year!  How was your Holiday?  We returned home yesterday after a week and a half visiting relatives!  It was nice to visit with family, and I enjoyed catching up with my sister.  She is growing her little baby while sporting a baby bump, and we can’t wait to meet our nephew this spring!  It was nice to get away and have a change of scenery.  Victory did pretty well while we were away, although we believe she is not too interested in expanding her pack!  Victory was so happy to be home and in her (our) bed last night!  Victory can be a complicated little lady!  Victory also received many nice gifts for Christmas!  She got a new feeder, clothing, toys, and treats!

Since we were going to be away for the Holidays and our December was quite busy, we did not put up a Christmas tree like last year.  However, each year I take a photo of our fur girl by the Christmas tree, an annual tradition along with visiting Santa!  This year, Victory sat by her Grandma’s Christmas tree, shown below!

We hope that you had a great Holiday!  I am looking forward to the new year, catching up, and getting back into the swing of things!

Happy New Year!

Below is a culmination of snapshots from 2015 with our fur girl, Victory!  We love her so very much!  Reflecting upon this past year, we enjoyed many fun adventures together which, we will always cherish.  We look forward to another great year with many possibilities in 2016!  We are very grateful.

You can also view how much Victory has physically an emotionally changed here and here.

Happy Monday!

It is almost the end of the year, and I thought that it would be neat to take a look back and see how far Victory has come physically and emotionally since adopting her in October 2013.  The images below are shown in chronological order starting in the lower right corner and ending in the upper left corner.  All photographs were taken during 2015.  Victory has really blossomed, and we feel so fortunate that she is part of our little family!  You can also view a year in review of Victory for 2014 here.

Happy Friday!  Have a great weekend!

Victory: Photography Project — 77

Beginning in January 2014, I started a weekly photography project with my muse, Victory!  I will continue to share this project on the blog this year!  My goal is to document all of Victory’s changes, while preserving fleeting moments and memories, while capturing moments of our everyday.

While we were in Michigan over Thanksgiving, we met Chrissy, a relative of Victory who is also a survivor of the horrible hoarding situation that Victory also survived.  (Here is what Chrissy looked like prior to adoption).  Not only are Chrissy and Victory physically similar, their personalities and mannerisms are also similar!  Unlike Victory, Chrissy had a litter of puppies shortly after being rescued, and then Chrissy went to a special foster home for socialization.  Similar to Victory, upon being rescued, Chrissy was extremely timid, shy, malnourished, and fearful.  However, with time, love, and patience, Chrissy has blossomed, both physically and emotionally, and she now has a wonderful furever home, including an older sheltie sister!

It was neat to meet another pup who was also rescued from the same hoarding situation.  Wouldn’t it be neat to have a sheltie reunion with all of the sheltie survivors and their pups who were adopted?!  If I lived closer to the tri-state area, it would be much easier to coordinate!

It is my hope that Biscuit, Victory, and Chrissy encourage others to consider dog rescue.  There are so many wonderful animals who are in need of furever homes.

Happy Friday!  We hope that you have a great weekend!  This weekend I hope to make more progress on my photography project; we hope to get caught up at home from being away; and possibly take Victory to see Santa, a new annual tradition!
