Funny facts about me & my dog Ralphie

Here are some fun facts about me and Ralphie:

My blog’s name is “The Ralphie Chronicles”.

Ralphie is adorable. He’s a schnauzer-poodle mix (a schnoodle) who my husband and I adopted from the Huron Valley Humane Society. The staff thought was 5 years-old when we adopted him, so that would make him 10 years-old today.

I love taking pictures of Ralphie.

I love my husband, but he doesn’t let me take pictures of him. When I do, he never looks happy.

Ralphie loves long weekends at our cottage in northern Michigan.

Ralphie thinks he is a lap dog.

Ralphie is an oversized lap dog who weighs 27 pounds.

I will not share how much I weigh.

I believe a positive attitude is worth so much in life and is hard to come by in others.

Ralphie is a very positive dog.

I have a positive attitude, pretty much all the time. Seriously, ask anyone! My glass is always half full.

I love getting manicures & pedicures often. It’s very relaxing after a 9 hour work day. I swear by Shellac.The manicure, polish and shine last for 2 weeks straight! It’s amazing.

Ralphie is not much of a Spa Dog, but loves baths and haircuts at home courtesy of my husband.

I love working out when I can find the time. I have a gym at work, so that makes it quite convenient.

Ralphie loves napping, walks around the neighborhood, looking out the window, playing hide & seek and catch with his stuffed-animal toys.

I love naps.

I have lived happily-ever-after with my husband for the last 10 years and counting. We adopted Ralphie five years ago and he has made our home-life even more lovely!

“Ralphie Chronicles” will share funny stories about Ralphie and my life with him in it. (To know Ralphie is to love him!) I would love to publish a series of childrens’ books about Ralphie, so I thought I’d try out some of my ideas here. So, ideas and suggestions are always welcomed!

Happy reading!
