#wjlacour insisted that I take this picture and send it to @cleverdevil because ““Not many people can bend their arms that way. It’s like a little gift from God. That and I can see in the dark. It’s like I have a little light shining inside me.” Yes Buddy, you do have a little light shining inside you and it melts my heart 😍

Snuggle piles are the best 😍 #cleverfamily #clevercolette #wjlacour #elizapugilton

In honor of Veteran’s Day, I have donated to @projectk9hero and K9 Hero Haven. #invinciblenelson and #elizapugilton are proud of their cousins who serve and have served. Please look up these organizations and share about the work they do for our human and dog veterans. **photos from organizations’ websites

When your puggy puppy climbs in your lap and makes herself comfortable 😍💞#elizapugilton

Too many people were planning to be The Queen of Mean for neighborhood trick or treating, so Colette had to whip together a “sleepy zombie” costume. She chose some old clothes to cut up, asked Daddy to char them, and then did her makeup. My #clevercolette is quite clever and eerily independent. My #wjlaclur stuck with Captain Toad all night, and he was the sweetest candy man telling everyone “Happy Halloween,” as he took his post on our driveway.

I sent The Queen of Mean and Captain Toad Treasure Tracker to school this morning :) #clevercolette #wjlacour

This “Snugglebie” turns 6 tomorrow! He’s “like a zombie but instead of brains, he needs SNNNUUUUGGGGLLLLES.” I hope #wjlacour remains a snugglebie for the rest of his life. I will happily be his victim 😍

That thing when the universe prevents you from leaving the house by hiding your key under your car. Homeschool at home today, I suppose!

After making a mess, #elizapugilton took #mynelsonboy’s advice, so she is snoozing and snoring away!

#elizapugilton couldn’t believe that #mynelson boy rolled over on his back for her. He continued to play that way with her for another 5minutes!

My Nelson Boy has been teaching Eliza the finer points of chilling out and relaxing. Today she reminded him how fun it can be to play, and my 13yr old pug got on the floor and played with her for 10min!! #elizapugilton #mynelsonboy

Weekend hot dogs 🌭 🐶 😜

Just some adorableness for your day. #elizapugilton

I have an angel, or maybe devil, on my shoulder. #elizapugilton

#elizapugilton #oldmanwinston #invinciblenelson dogs that have made permanent paw prints in my heart. Happy National Dog Day!

#elizapugilton is learning her best life from #invinciblenelson

#elizapugilton is making herself at home and starting to find her favorite spots. It hasn’t even been a week, and she fits in seamlessly to our #cleverfamily. Also, Pugilton or Hamilpug?

Puggy snuggies!! 😍😍💞 #elizapugilton

Eliza has joined our family!! Happy early Birthday to me! We are all smitten with her, except for maybe Nelson. Thanks to @cleverdevil for agreeing to bring her into our family 😍

Choice! @theroadiummarket drive-in tonight for Ferris Bueller’s Day Off with @cleverdevil #clevercolette #wjlacour #saveferris

Still enjoying this guy’s cuddles. He will make his new family so happy! Let’s find him a forever home!

Leo has made himself at home on his #4days4life vacation from @arfharborshelter. @clevercolette and @wjlacour are giving him lots of love, and he’s soaking it up.

Cute, cuddly, and curious. This little guy who the shelter calls Jackson, but whom we call Leo, is hanging out with us for #4days4life He’ll make a great addition to his new family. He’s trainable and learning some manners, and we’re appreciating that he knows how to potty outside. Help him celebrate The Declaration of Independence and adopt him!

Word to the wise (or not so wise): If you go out on the balcony when you are insanely drunk, everyone can still hear you. 4AM is not the time to sing your heart out to the world off of your hotel balcony. Gypsaaaaaay. #lightsleeper #tired

Last Day/First Day. I have a 3rd grader now. #clevercolette has grown and matured in ways that I never could have imagined. Her newfound confidence has swelled my heart this year. She’s bound for big things in whatever path she chooses. 😘 to my girl
