We're unsure how we're going to handle all this boundless energy! πŸ˜‚ We are starting to think we accidentally adopted a rag doll, not a dog! #ragdoll #ragdog #lazybones #adoptdontshop #muttsofinstagram #happypup @robertmtcoggins

Our home has grown by four feet! 🐾🐾 Meet Adelaide! She's a senior boxer-mix who is laid back, calm, and as sweet as can be! All this girl wants to do is snuggle. We've had some growing pains (Wes is hesitant to share his humans!) but in time we hope that we'll all find peace and harmony. She truly is a gem and we are so glad we found her! #adoptdontshop #newbaby #dogmom #muttsofinstagram #boxersofinstagram #pittsofinstagram #shelterdogsrule #savealife #adopt #dogdaysrescue @robertmtcoggins

Just another day in paradise! Here's me doing vacation right: I'm topless with a bottle in hand and apparently wearing someone else's shoes πŸ˜‚ At least I thought to wear a sun hat, right? Thank you for sending the old pictures @roseflower1952 #throwbackpics #flashbackfriday #happyFriday #babypics @jdhopper1957 @hopperdonald remember this little girl?

Here's Wes perfectly illustrating the feeling I experience while coming up for air after finishing another wonderful book...totally dazed and bewildered!

Another amazing dinner in the books. I got the brisket sandwich with Brunswick stew. They serve all of their meals on old mismatched plates so it really feels like you could be in your grandma's kitchen! It was wonderful having Robert's family come down to our neck of the woods! #bbq #brisket #eatlocal #birthdayboy #southerncharm @robertmtcoggins @pat19973

Yesterday we tried a cute little place in Woodstock with a menu full of ingredients from local farms. The meat and cheese plate was amazing, as was the soft boiled egg and bacon Caesar salad. The Yukon gold gnocchi with local oyster mushrooms were absolutely amazing! Compliments to the chef! It didn't hurt that the restaurant is in an old Victorian house built in 1894, it was beautiful and the atmosphere was excellent! My birthday boy had a blast! Now for more delicious local eats on this lovely Sunday! #happySunday #eatlocal #localfarms #centurytavern #birthdayboy #latergram

Robert told me not to get him anything for his birthday...but he didn't say anything about gifts from the dog! Happy birthday to my most favorite human being on the planet. I'm so excited to spend my life with you. I love you more and more each day ❀️ @robertmtcoggins #birthdayboy #muttsofinstagram #dogdad

I mentioned my love of birds to my new co-worker (and friend!) last week and she surprised me with this today! Kind, thoughtful gestures are what makes the world go round. ❀️🌎Thank you so much Emma, you made my day!

Everyone stop what they are doing and go buy this amazing ice cream! It's a deep velvety chocolate ice cream with a hint of cinnamon, almonds, and chiles. I like it even more that it's proudly made in Atlanta, right down the road from us in Marietta to be exact πŸ‘πŸΌπŸŒΆπŸ¦ #icecream #dessert #madeinAtlanta #highroad #aztecchocolate #amazed @highroadcraft

My husband would never want me to post this but I have to brag about him. As we were leaving Publix we saw an old man with no umbrella about to head into the pouring rain. Robert threw the car into park and ran out to escort him so he wouldn't get soaked. He does things like this everyday. He's got the kindest heart. I married an everyday hero, and I couldn't be more proud! #everydayhero #proudwife

We're going somewhere fun they said. Now I'm getting a bath at something called a "self-serve dog wash"!? At least I'll get some treats out of this. -Wes #dogwash #dogsofinstgram #muttsofinstagram #dogmom #bathtime

To all my dog lovers, please say a prayer for my parent's precious lab Abby. The vet thinks she may have a malignant tumor. She will undergo a biopsy this week. Please be thinking of her! We are so very worried and she hasn't been acting like herself ❀️Thank you

We had a wonderful Sunday family dinner with my cousin Hanna and her son, Hunter! They're visiting us all the way from Alaska! Wes is worn out from playing but I just had to get a picture of him with the flower I picked πŸ˜‚ I always take a gardenia off of my mom's gardenia bush as we leave their house so I can smell it on the ride home! Wes wasn't super excited about my photography skills. #photographer #happySunday #familytime #gardenia #muttsofinstagram #dogsofinstgram

"To live every day as if it had been stolen from death, that is how I would like to live. To feel the joy of life, as Eve felt the joy of life. To separate oneself from the burden, the angst, the anguish that we all encounter every day. To say I am alive, I am wonderful, I am. I am. That is something to aspire to." -a dog who hopes to be a human, as read in The Art of Racing in the Rain. It is one of the most beautiful and powerful sentiments I've ever come across ❀️#dogsareeverything #muttsofinstagram #dogsofinstgram

Two years ago this big sister met her newest baby brother for the first time! We didn't know if he was a boy or a girl. It was the most exciting reveal! With a middle name like Hopper, this kid will surely do amazing things! Or get into trouble! πŸ˜‰#namesake #birthdayboy #proudaunt @spoodles25 still can't believe you had boy and girl stuff monogrammed just in case!

Sissy, I'm glad you made sure to have two summer babies so we always have a birthday to celebrate between the four of us! This particular blonde haired blue eyed treasure turns 2 today ❀️ We adore you Townes Hopper Edgin! Bless your sweet grin and your ever-present giggle. Keep growing like a weed and making us all smile. Aunt "Tat" loves you! #proudaunt #birthdayboy @spoodles25 @richardedgin3

Cheers to the last year in my 20's! I had just one thing in mind for my birthday dinner. That was a shrimp boil at Henry's, of course! Dessert was a wonderful berry cobbler...my absolute favorite! #birthdaygirl #anothertriparoundthesun #cajun #shrimpboil @henrys_grill thank you for the wonderful service and food, always!
