It’s beginning to look a lot like…

Pets ChristmasMy little family in Las Vegas is stuffed and exhausted after a gluttonous Thanksgiving and busy Black Friday. After just one day off work, I relaxed so much that I slept 13 hours last night! And today? I got so much done — most of which I won’t detail here, as some of the people I shopped for read this blog. Two I am pretty sure don’t? My two rescue pets, both of whom are now wearing the most adorable little costumes. I hope no one thinks I favor Jax, but he is just the only one who will let me take his photo. (Chase has on antlers, which are now hanging below his chin.) My boys have gone from the streets of Costa Rica to glitzy Sin City, where they often have vacations at the fanciest five-star dog hotel in Las Vegas. It is easier than most people think, bringing rescue pets home from your trip to the United States. It seems like just yesterday, my boys were Costa Rican stray street dogs.

People often tell me that my dogs won they lottery. But I think I did!
