If Tuna wasn’t my dog, and I saw this little monkey-hat, parka wearing cutie on the street, I would run up to his parents and go “Excuse me! Would you mind if I kiss your dog on the face one million 800 62,000 300 billion times?” In all seriousness because, JUST LOOK AT HIM! Therefore, if you ever see him walking down the street, you have the invitation to ask me such a request and I’ll give you full permission to do so! ps: what would you actually do if you saw him on the street? Just curious. Haha

You guys! Over 6,000 of you replied to my question “how or why does Tuna melt your heart?” yesterday! You are incredible and my heart was, and still is, exploding from your thoughtful replies. Thank you so much for for taking the time to write me! Made my day! #youmeltmyheart ❤️ ❤️❤️ Ps: See the heart in his turtleneck? Pps: I brushed Tuna’s teeth today and scrapped off plaque. Don’t they look good?! #crushingit!

This photo was taken the night before my mom had a massive stroke (due to cancer complications) and then one week later, on Dec 13, 2017, she passed away. She adored Tuna (as you can see) and he brought her so much joy, especially as she battled cancer. She also loved how much joy he brought all of you! She talked about it often. In honour of her, would you mind telling me in a comment how and/or why Tuna melts your heart? It can be simple or a testimony of something specific. I think reading what you say will be helpful for my heart today and throughout this holiday season. Loosing your parent sucks, especially over Christmas. I stand with you all who have experienced something similar. Love you all.

This is EXACTLY what Tuna would be doing if he was Snoopy...except he’d be sleeping and snoring. Classic #tunainterpretations by @tarasfostersaz! #tunartuesdays

I’m a big believer in supporting friends and small businesses, so I created another (last minute) Holiday Gift Guide for humans and pets, just for fun! Most of the items I chose were created by my close, personal friends and some of these small businesses give back to human and animal communities. Link in the bio! Featuring @darling, @kristinamicotti, @thegivingkeys, @bykaraelise, @sniphperfumes, @wagaware, @lascollective, @fetcheyewear, @conchacollar and @yark! Ps: Tuna wrapping paper by @noblefriendsshop but it may not arrive in time for the holidays. #dearinheadlights 🦌

Ok folks. Get ready to melt, cry, squeal, swoon, faint, shriek, sigh, say UUUGHHH!, and pee your pants a little bit. That’s how good this video is. Ps: Tuna does not like babies. I repeat, he does not (usually) like babies but he’s made an exception. #sundaysnuggleswithsissy 😍😍😍

Has anyone ever come home to a ninja taking a nap in your bed, because I think I just did. Ps: How is there no ninja emoticon??! #shocking

I’d like to point out a few things that may not be super obvious to you. A) His paw 😂 All him. #dainty 2) He’s tucked away in the “sleeve” of my aunt’s vest. Again. All him. #strange 3) His #shrivelneck. #enoughsaid 4) His sass. #perfection 5) Portrait mode. Trying it out. #DoWeLike?

It didn’t feel like the first week of December over the weekend. We were in Atlanta, basically wearing shorts from the warm weather, but now that we’re back in freezing Cleveland, I chose this adorable #tunainterpretations to depict what the first week of December really feels like. #tunartuesdays by @dreamyportrait

Today is our 2 year wedding anniversary. I wasn’t going to post about it because it was kind of uneventful when it comes to celebrating. We spent it running all over Atlanta to make selections for our new house, we’re not feeling very well, and we spent hours in the airport to head back home. But as I sat on the tarmac waiting to take off, I was overwhelmed with gratitude. I looked over at my incredible husband who was holding our beautiful sleeping baby, and then I looked down at my feet and smiled at our amazing #toodlebrain sleeping in his airplane bag and I thought to myself, “WOW, the past two years have been SO eventful and I’m so grateful for every moment.” While there have been unforgettable moments and moments I wish I could forget, I realised that you have all been a part of our story and our journey. So I scrolled through our wedding photos as we flew over various states, and I selected some of the sweetest moments to share with you from that lovely day, just in case you missed this part ☺️ Ps: Yes Tuna was our ring bearer 🤣 Lovely photos by the amazing @agallant

My golden boy and his golden hotdog shaped rump.

When you notice that your dog is “subtly” creeping on you from the back seat but it’s not that subtle. #nochill
