Hey! I forgot to share the second outtake video we made last week. I kind of love these ridiculous pictures and I'm thinking they may need their own calendar someday. HA!

Working with animals can be a challenge but they sure do look cute in these photos! This is the first of three outtake videos we made for our project. Enjoy!

I've been working on this for months and it's finally done! Hooray for rescue pets!

This adorably sweet and SUPER well trained two year old female pit bull is in need of a home. She has been at the Pasadena Humane Society for months. Although they work with several other adoption services to provide as many opportunities to find homes, they are all currently full and her options are very limited. If you live in the Los Angeles area and are able to give this sweet girl a home (I met her and she is WONDERFUL but we just don't have the space to take her in) I know she would be the best family member, ever. She's at the Pasadena Humane Society under the name "Angie" so please consider taking in a rescue pet that needs your help.

Holy dumdums, I am terrible about remembering that I have this account. Hi, Google+ buddies!

I started a blog a few months ago where I've been writing all kinds of different posts. Most of my stories are about incredibly embarrassing things I do to myself, some are sort of a walk down memory lane, and occasionally they're posts I think may help others based on my own experiences.

Today, I wrote a post about what it's like live with a family member with depression. Although I know my mom had depression that wasn't treated, and my own kids have depression which they are currently getting treatment for, this post is about seeing the signs and symptoms in my husband and what was done to help him.

Forgive me if I forget to post more often here but I'll do my best to remember. In the meantime, here's the link to my blog post from today.
I hope you enjoy it and if you feel like it, there's other stories going back a couple of months that you may like.

Thank you!

About a month ago, I was at the Pasadena Humane Society and saw a beautiful tan and white, six month old female pit mix. Her personality and disposition reminded me so much of Marlowe (who has become an awesome addition to the family) so I was hopeful she would find her forever home soon. Two weeks ago, she was adopted!

Yesterday, I was visiting PHS and was out in the dog kennel area when that sweet pup was returned by the owner who said she was "too hyper." A six month old puppy, who had been living on the streets when she was brought to the shelter and had no consistent training, was "too hyper."

When we first got Marlowe, she was only 4 months old and had clearly been living those 4 months on the streets. She was thin, dirty, sick, ridiculously hyper, and the sweetest, most affectionate little puppy we'd ever seen (we were at PHS when she was brought in by someone who had found her running around a local park.) As dog owners, we already knew it would take a lot of work for her to be a good member of the Wheaton household. Patience, consistency, and training was going to be tough, but we knew it needed to be done for her sake and ours. She is 18 months old now and such a sweet girl, I couldn't imagine life without her.

Being a pet owner takes work. If you're considering adopting a pet for your family as a gift this holiday, make sure everyone in your household is on board with this idea ahead of time. Go to a shelter together, make the decision together, spend some time with the pet, ask shelter staff about personality traits and potential issues, and commit to the care and training of the pet together.

 A pet isn't going to become the perfect addition to the family overnight. It's going to take time for you both to get used to the new living situation, and training doesn't get perfected right away. But over time, your new family member will become one of the best part of your lives.
