The Bodacious Story Of Us

Our 3rd wedding anniversary is coming up on July 28th! In the weeks leading up to this date, we make the decision. Do we celebrate the weekend before or after? Between our busy work schedules, spreading the biscuit love, events, and other stuff, planning ahead is necessary. This year, we decided on the weekend before and on one of those days, we're hosting a Bodacious Yard & Bake Sale. We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than to raise money so we can spread more Bodacious Biscuit, Blanket & Tote love and purchase much needed items for our local shelters.

My Bodacious Version Of The Quintessential Vodka Gimlet

There's a woman I've come to admire many times over. Her name is Felicia and she's the founder of Puppy Love For Death Row Dogs. My admiration doesn't stem solely from her phenomenal efforts towards the greater good. There's a tremendous amount also stemming from her candor. It won't take long to pick up on that if you read her updates on Facebook. I read 'em all. Word for word. In the raw. You read it. You feel it. You see it. Felicia takes you with her in all she does, experiences and witnesses.

Tips For Finding A Pet Sitter And Boarding Facility You Can Trust

A few years ago (almost), when we adopted our Coco bug, Lisa and I made a life-changing decision. We would never board Coco. This decision stemmed from a few factors. The nightmare Coco was rescued from. Our experience searching for a boarding facility when our sweet Remmy was alive. More horrifically, an incident we witnessed at the location we had boarded Remmy. Other factors trickled in as time went on, but those were the big 3.

Another Thank You To The Friends Of Windsor Animal Care And Control

Earlier today we were at the Summer Kickoff Fundraiser at Bart's Drive-In and The Beanery Bistro located in Windsor, CT. We had a great time hangin' with The Friends Of Windsor Animal Care And Control and some of the Windsor Police. And, we met some great "hoomans" and pups. The sweet nugget o' love in the photo is Pearl and she decided to perch herself on our table and pick out her own bag of biscuits!

A Bodacious Day Spent With The Friends of Windsor Animal Care And Control

A year ago, this coming week, while visiting one of our favorite shelters to deliver biscuit love, the universe shifted. Fate stepped in. Lisa held a sweet lil' nugget o' pup love whom we had spent time with before. However, on this particular day, the universe did one its lil' shimmy shake, decided it was time and, long story short, we left the shelter with our Sophie.

A Beautiful And Inspiring Ending To An Exhausting Day

On the way home from our event on Saturday, we stopped at a friend's house. Her daughter was having a party and had requested our presence. In the weeks prior, our friend had informed us what kind of party it was and why it was taking place. However, amid the chaos of a busy week, working our table at the event and the hour and a half one-way commute, it had slipped my mind. Our friend's daughter is graduating high-school. So, this was a themed graduation party, right?

A Bodacious Thank You To The Wolcott Pound Animal Control, Staff & Volunteers

Yesterday was an extraordinary day. After a good dose of early morning coffee, we packed the car and head to the Wolcott Rabies & Micro-Chip Clinic event with a full setup. Aside from the outdoor clinic, there were vendors, a cookout, raffles, and various rescues. Normally, we don't attend events that are over an hour away. When you figure in commute time with setup, take down and the length of time for the actual event, it makes for a long day.

An Update On Our Bodacious Blankets, Totes, Bandannas & Bands

In mid April, after weeks of deliberation, we decided to expand our Bodacious Love in the form of Bodacious Blankets, Totes, Bandannas and Bands. We had a few donations of fabric and sewing supplies roll in, a sewing machine and a monetary donation to purchase needed items. Our goal was to rev this up in May. We organized our biscuit room and supplies, used our monetary donation to purchase fabric and researched patterns and other creative ideas.

Your Pup Will Be Head Over Paws For These DIY Pupcakes

We've had a lot of people reach out to us asking if we make birthday cakes or cupcakes for dogs. Currently, we don't. That's not to say we won't offer Bodacious Pupcakes in the future. Anything is possible. However, right now, it's not something we offer.
