Is anyone in the market for a new bed? After Hurricane Irma, I was in search of a new bed after we had to throw everything away due to flooding and water coming through our ceiling. That's when we found @loomandleaf by @saatvamattress. I didn't know much about the company, but after much research between them and their competitors, I went with Loom and Leaf based on the fact that it was eco-friendly, American-made, and a luxurious product for a fraction of the cost. This bed has been featured in @voguemagazine, @goodmorningamerica, @huffpost, @forbes, and the like. Their delivery guys came in and put the bed together. They were quick, efficient, and extremely professional. This company from start to finish made what was an extremely stressful situation into a dream. I highly recommend everyone check this company out. We'll be posting reviews after a few night sleeps, but so far, it is plush, firm, and just wonderful! Enjoy the clip of Chuck enjoying the bed! #SleepLikeABoss #SoHappy #ShopAmerican #EcoFriendly #Luxurious #SaatvaPets

Chuck's the kind of guy that hates being dragged to family reunions, especially one that involves the Ferrets. Sorry, Chuck, but we all LOVE the Ferrets! Who all missed the Ferrets?!!! 😂❤️💃🏻 #OhChuck #PoorChuck #SuckItUpCupcake #YallChucksFaceTho

When I woke up this morning, I didn't realize Chuck was sleeping next to me. I threw the blanket off to the side and got up to get the dog leashes and poop bag. That's when I realized Chuck was nowhere in sight. After calling him several times, out of nowhere, the blanket rose up like a ghost, haha. He sat like that on the bed, unmoving, until I called his name. He's so silly. I love him. 😂❤️💃🏻 #OhChuck #SillyDog #Cute #Funny #Adorable #Howlween

Meet Loki Mae, Chuck's frenemy and roommate in Atlanta. You'll see his ass pop up on our feed as we post pictures from our time in Atlanta, including a rare picture of Chuck and the entire family on a hike in the North Ga mountains. Stay tuned as you do not want to miss this made for Instagram post. 😂❤️💃🏻 #Dogue #Cute #PoorGuy #SoCuteTho #Atlanta .

Anyone miss the Ferrets? They're actually with us in Atlanta as well, but they don't show up in the feed because, well, Chuck and Toby (aka, Mr. Chain Chomp) are divorced from one another and they get to split visitation rights with Olivia and Shiloh, haha. Somehow I got screwed and have to pay alimony, child support, and health insurance for everyone (😜). Every time we all get together for family gatherings, there's a lot of passive aggressiveness, side-eyes, and full-blown arguments. It's best that they never be in the same room again without a mediator present. 🤣 Jokes aside, it isn't that easy to take pictures of the Ferrets. I don't trust them off-leash as well as I do Chuck and Mini-Chuck. I will try to include them in our feed more, but as a rule, I don't like to force the doggies into anything they don't enjoy (e.g. making them pose). This pic is from the day we picked up the Ferrets from San Francisco, and we're here with @marloweandshakes and @the.ninja.dog. #Rescue #AdoptDontShop #ILoveMyRescueDog #ShitHappensTho #MakeTheBestOfIt #Dogs #Cute #Happy #SquadGoals

Hi everyone! Thank you for your kind words and offering to help us out through all of this. We really appreciate it! Chuck is enjoying a delicious burger from @fredsmeatbread and sweet tea from @littletartbakeshop, both located @krogstmarket. This has been a long-time favorite hang-out place for us and we love visiting here whenever we're in town. Check it out, Atlantans! 😋❤️💃🏻 #KrogStreetMarket #WeLiveToEat #MustLoseWeightTho #Muffintop #NomNomNom #GetInMyBelly

The dogs were helping me find battery-powered fans, flashlights, and candles, but everyone is sold out. ☹️ After what happened last night, we decided to just head back to Atlanta where at least the dogs will be comfortable. Long drive, but the dogs come first in my world. ❤️ #RoadTrip #HomeDepot #HurricaneIrma #Irma #Irmageddon #NoPower #AintGotTimeForNosyBitches

Thanks for all the messages, guys! It really helps in keeping our spirits up! Here's a clip from earlier of Chuck enjoying our road trip. Thanks to @siriusxm radio, we get to listen to gems like this instead of static and local bumpkin music. Hope this makes you guys smile. 😂❤️💃🏻 #HurricaneIrma #Irma #cnn #RoadTrip #Evacuation

Bye bye, Florida! Hopefully our half a tank of gas is enough to get us to a main artery where there will be a larger gas supply. Being that we moved into a ground floor unit on the beach, I'm prepared to say goodbye to my things. We were supposed to get a delivery of a new fridge and wifi installation today, but these things will have to wait. It's already a mess on 95 and 75, but at least Florida Governor Rick Scott suspended Florida tolls. We waited around to help our neighbors board up their places, kept enough water for the road, and gave away over 20 gallons of water since we were leaving. Water is sold out everywhere and people were selling jugs for $65 apiece. Some people are apprehensive, others are adamant about staying behind, citing the storm will just blow over. My original plan was to buy a canoe and life jackets for the dogs, but my new manager called me into her office yesterday and stated she wanted me to take this seriously and have a plan, either evacuate or find shelter. The best decision for the dogs was to evacuate, so here I go. Hope my Florida friends stay safe if you're staying...and if you're leaving, look for a Hawaiian shirt-clad Chuck hanging out of the passenger side of a white car. 😂❤️💃🏻 #HurricaneIrma #Irma #CNN #SouthFlorida #BocaRaton #PalmBeachCounty

Hi all! Thank you to those who checked in. We've had a few crazy months:
.
.
-from rehabilitating Chuck to having over 30+ interviews to find a new job;
.
. -from getting a new job to having to get a new car because our old one died;
.
. -from getting in a car accident in our new car to moving 20 hours away to Boca Raton to start the new job.
.
.

No sooner did we settle into our beautiful new place by the beach this weekend, we now have to flee to Atlanta to escape Hurricane Irma. Always an adventure in the Chuck family that's for sure. #HurricaneIrma #SouthFlorida #BocaRaton

It's been three weeks since this all started. We're into his second surgery and I'm trying my best to keep it together. Every day, I've been carrying all 45lb of Chuck outside to go potty, spoon-feed him food/water, force down his medication, take him to the vet, go to work, rush to the vet after work to pick him up, carry him outside, cook him food, spoon-feed him food/water, all while trying to maintain my composure so Chuck wouldn't think anything was wrong. It's been hard. It's been hard without Toby. I went from having what seemed like 15 dogs to no dogs since Chuck is acting like an old man and the girls hardly play. It's been tough. We still have IG obligations though, so the girls will be taking over Chuck's IG duties. They've got big furry paws to fill.

Two weekends ago, I made the hard decision of sending Toby away to live at my close friend's house where he will remain until I can figure out the best solution for everyone involved, one where all the dogs can live in a stress-free environment and one that will not break my heart. Unfortunately, Chuck cannot catch a break this year and was under intensive treatment for Ehrlichiosis several months ago. Now, he's currently fighting health complications and has been under vet care every day for the past two weeks. That said, having Toby in the house was causing Chuck immense distress. Our vet along with the behaviorist have recommended that the dogs not live together or medicate Toby with doggy Xanax. I understand that this solution may work for some people, but for me personally, it did not. Toby is currently living on a fenced in 10 acre property and has been spoiled since his arrival. This gives me comfort, but does not take away the pain of giving up one of your own. For all intents and purposes, he is still mine. I've made it clear that while I am financially responsible for him through a fund that I set up specifically for his room, board, care, medical bills, etc., that I still retain ownership. I hope one day he will live with me again, but if not, Olivia will be joining him, for they should not be separated. As soon as I came back in after dropping Toby off, Olivia freaked out...running from room to room, howling and crying. Sometimes the right decisions are not the easiest ones, but the best decisions that you make for others are generally unselfish in nature. I've included pictures of Toby in his new home...he even got to go camping. ❤

We've been volunteering at a farm to cuddle baby goat, and let me just tell you...goats are just the funniest little animals! I definitely have a new appreciation for photographing dogs after attempting to do so with goats. They definitely do not know what no, stay, sit, stop chewing, or stop jumping means. 😂❤💃🏻 #BabyGoats

Day Four of being sick, ugh. Maybe I caught something when I went baby goat cuddling, haha. Anyway, today the spotlight is back on Mini-Chuck. I generally use her for photo shoots now because she's the easiest one to work with...and because she doesn't have a beard so I don't have to worry about beard stains like I do with Chuck and Olivia. What do you guys use to clean beard stains? And which doggy would you like to see more of...don't worry I won't tell them. 😂❤💃🏻 #DatUnderbiteTho #AdoptDontShop #RescueDog

I was raised by an amazingly strong woman. She is the epitome of courage, strength, and resilience. And she did it on her own. I would not be the person I am today without her...and for that, I am eternally grateful to her..
.

Growing up, my mom would constantly tease me, telling me I was "born with my mouth first" because I was always talking, arguing, having something to say. And she always told me: You have a mouth, so use it...and use it for the greater good..
.

And that I did. And do. And will continue to do so..
.

Today, we celebrated International Women's Day. We wore red. We marched. We protested. But more importantly, we reached out to others in solidarity. .
.
Solidarity means so much more than just showing "support". It's an affirmation of common goals...fighting the same battles, side by side. .
.
What will you do? .

Although I eventually transitioned to a private school, the time during which I received an education through the public school system was highly enjoyable. The manner by which the teachers taught the curriculum kept students engaged and motivated. I remember a time in our English class in 7th grade when the teacher challenged us to embrace poetry by offering an incentive of one bonus point for every poetry line that we could recite from memory in front of the entire class. Not to be outdone by any of my classmates, I went on to recite over 1,000 lines. One of the poems that I remember reciting was Langston Hughes's "A Dream Deferred." At that time, I did not fully understand nor appreciate the deeper meaning behind the poem, but over the years when I would hit roadblocks in my life, I would recall that poem. I would remember the poignant opening inquiry…what happens to a dream deferred? What indeed. He goes on to ask if it dries up like a raisin or does it fester like a sore. He further asks if it runs or does it stink like rotten meat or does it crust over. Or maybe it just sags like a heavy load. Or…maybe, it just explodes. Although this poem was written in the context of the frustration experienced by African Americans during the Civil Rights movement, it was also cleverly written in a way that allowed it to be timeless and universal. Oftentimes in our lives, we would feel a sense of despondency and stagnation. We feel as if our goals are out of reach or we're just in a rut. I suspect many of us remember a time when life seems to hold many promises and opportunities. Just remember, it still does. And it always will. Just keep fighting the good fight. Never give up hope. #Dreams #DontStopBelievin #TotallyHashtaggedALineFromAJourneySong

Today, I'd like to highlight one of my favorite collar/leash/accessories small business shops: @dwam_dogwithamission. As the shop name suggests, the company supports special local and international animal welfare projects to help less fortunate dogs get shelter and much needed TLC by donating a portion of their sales to such groups. We were fortunate to have received a few of their products to review and I cannot begin to tell you how thrilled we were when we opened the package. The material used was of the highest quality and the craftsmanship is extremely impeccable. The leather, is sturdy, well-oiled, and absolutely beautiful. The embroidery is unique, colorful, funky, bohemian, and fun. The hardware is just the right shade, neither too brassy, too gold, nor too dark. We had quite a few people comment on the beauty of the collar when we were walking Chuck around town. If you're looking for a unique collar that is the perfect blend of modern meets vintage meets boho, look no further. We were given the code INSTA2017 for our followers to use for a discount.
