Pixel Blue Eyes Presents: The Accidental Tourist on Wordless Wednesday

I'm back!! I took an extended leave of absence from my blog and social media sites to focus on helping Mommy during a serious neck issue. Well, the family also took a much needed vacation that no one knew about.
They said "Beach" and I said "WHERE?"
They said "Florida" and I said "WHEN?"
They said "now", and I said, "LET'S GO!!"
Pixel Blue Eyes presents "The Accidental Tourist" Doggie Edition. Photo shows Pixel wearing a Hawaiian dress and her collar camera in a lounging chair at the beach.

I grabbed my collar camera, a bunch of toys, several outfits and my favorite doggie bed and blanket and we were off to the gorgeous shell-filled, sandy beaches of Florida. Over the next couple of weeks I'll be sharing all the adventures, as well as reviewing the places we stayed that were pet friendly, and places we visited that were not so 'pet friendly'. We sure did learn a lot and I want to share that knowledge with you!
Stay tuned for lots more fun to come with LOTS of photos of course.
Happy Wordless Wednesday friends!! This blog hop is hosted by my good friends at BlogPaws. So many of my fellow pet bloggers are going to the 2014 BlogPaws Convention that starts tomorrow. I wish I could join them, but I will be following their adventures with great anticipation. Have a great rest of the day!!

Pixel's Special Moments with Mommy - Early Morning #RecipeForMoments

Pixel Snuggled in her Mommy's Arms with her sleepy head on Mommy's neck & shoulder, the first day they met
Mommy and I have an incredibly strong bond. We've shared that bond since the very first day we met, and it has only grown stronger and more special with each passing day, month and year. This month marks 6 happy years that we've been together! We love each other so much and share special moments every day. Special moments are important in any relationship and should be sought out because they strengthen the love and friendship we share with another.
In celebration of these special moments, I'm taking part in the BlogPaws #RecipeForMoments blog hop. Now, what makes a good  "Recipe" for Special Moments? They are as varied as they can be. No two recipes are exactly alike. Over the years, Mommy and I have created many different types of special moments together...moments we share throughout the day and week, some year after year. We cherish each one and never take them for granted. Some things get better with age, or with time, and that statement couldn't be more true than with Mommy and me. I'd like to share one of our very favorite special moments...our very first moment of everyday.
From the very first day I came to be with Mommy, I've slept with her in our bed. It was "her" bed on day one, but I quickly made it "our bed". When she's on the bed, I have to be there also. Plain and simple. I snuggle with her for naps, when she's sick, and of course every night I lay up against her, lay my head on her arm, and go to sleep knowing I am safe, warm and eternally loved. We sleep all through the night like this. What a perfect start to a wonderful recipe for a special moment.

Our wake up routine is a very slow, gentle way to start the day. When we wake up in the morning, the very first thought in my head is "Oh my goodness, I get another day with Mommy!" Mommy's very first thought is "Oh my goodness, I get another day with sweet Pixel!" Believe it or not, I am still snuggled up against Mommy from the night before, but once I see she's awake, I immediately roll over on my back. I rub my eyes with my paws and coo little puppy sounds through my smiles, all the while Mommy is loving on me and rubbing my belly.
Our recipe for these early morning "special moments" is simple: we mix two hearts that love unconditionally, dozens of little kisses from both of us, endless smiles and we blend it all together with lots of cuddles.
Mommy gives me little kisses, I give her kisses back. We talk to each other and she tells me how special I am to her. It puts smiles on both our faces as we share this very special love wake up call.

After we've snuggled, given kisses, talked a while and nuzzled each other's faces, I have to seal the love fest with something that I know will ensure Mommy is "marked with my love" all the day through. I roll on her! Yes, I do. Sometimes I roll on her arm, or her long hair, most often it's just symbolic as I "roll" on our blankets, but the meaning is clear and I MUST do it every morning. Our morning snuggle routine is one of our most cherished special moments of the day together.
Here is a special video that Mommy took a couple of years ago, where she was able to capture our early morning special moments love fest together.

Here's another video of me giving Mommy good morning puppy kisses. I never run out of affection for her!



So, what's your special "recipe for moments" with the ones you love? I'd love to hear about it. It can be most anything, because no matter what your recipe for special moments are, as long as the moments are seasoned with love, the recipe will be truly delicious!
