Brianna's Blog is Back!

Well, it is a new month (not to mention a new year), and I thought I'd better get back to blogging --- after our trip to New Zealand I got so caught up with other life that I stopped blogging for a while, but now I am back, with plenty of stories to come I'd imagine. :) I was thinking about recapping the last few months, but instead of that, I thought I'd just something that made me smile tonight...

Yep, it has to do with Vigo. Vigo always seems to make me smile, regardless of what he is doing :) Tonight I planned on ripping apart all the boxes from Christmas so I could put them in the recycling box tomorrow (they have to be ripped up instead of just flattened according to the rules). So, instead of me getting paper cuts, I thought I'd put Vigo to work, and I piled a big pile of boxes in front of him, knowing that he likes cardboard. You should have seen his eyes-- for about 3 minutes he just looked at me, saying, "I want to play with those, but are they for me?" even after I told him it was 'ok'.

Finally, he gave in and started into the pile -- he sure loves tearing up cardboard
Then I went to go cook dinner, and I left him 'alone' in the room while I was in the adjoining kitchen. It had only been a few minutes (maybe 2?) and I looked over and I had forgotten to take out all of the foam that must have been inside one of the boxes.... it was now strewn all over the floor (and by all over I mean ALL over).

I had to spend a few extra minutes cleaning up the living room, but Vigo was so happy I'd say it was worth it -- I hope that having kids will be the same -- they make a mess but they are so happy that it doesn't matter....

Anyways, thanks for reading and look forward to more consistent posts in the future
Happy February!


  1. That makes me laugh! Good dog :)

  2. I didn't know he liked to eat cardboard? I'll have to tempt him with a box.
