No, I don’t walk my baby in heels. He just hates to be left alone… all he wants is to be with us – how can you not love something that loves you THIS much? We’re so crazy about this little fella.
One of my favorite looks – jeans and a blazer.

Speaking of LOVE for dogs, I just picked up this little cutie-pie from our local shelter. She’s for my son, who’s promised to love, honor, and obey this little gal. 😉 Her name is Maya. She’s such a sweetie!
I Rescued a Human Today
Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels.
I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her. I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so
she wouldn’t be afraid.
As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my
cage. I didn’t want her to know that I hadn’t been walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepers
get too busy and I didn’t want her to think poorly of them.
As she read my kennel card, I hoped that she wouldn’t feel sad about my past. I only have the
future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone’s life. She got down on
her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up
against the bars to comfort her.
Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship. A tear fell down her
cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well. Soon my kennel door opened
and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep her
safe. I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see
that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes. I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor.
So many more are out there who haven’t walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At
least I could save one.
I rescued a human today.

i’m sure maya and your son will be happy together. maya is so a sweatie!
you look pretty in your black jeans, even in jeans so elegant! tobi rounds up the pictures, he’s a super model! lieben gruß von sabine
Thank you, Sabine!
They are VERY happy together. He’s having fun potty training her! 😉
I agree! Tobi is a super model!
You make me wanna run down to the shelter!!!!
Thank you for visiting!
I know what you mean! When I picked up Maya, I had to leave behind two siblings. It broke my heart. I wanted to bring all of them home. I’d like to have a house full of dogs when I retire….when I have time to take care of ALL of them. 🙂
Jeans + blazers is my go-to combo for work…other than my pencil skirts! It’s casual but polished.
Maya is a cutie…do you know what kind of dog she is?! So glad she rescued you!

I totally agree with you about jeans & blazers.
The shelter has Maya as a Boxer mix. We think there’s a Shepherd or a Lab in her as well. I suppose it doesn’t matter b/c she’s the cutest & sweetest mutt ever!
Maya is officially melting my heart. So cute. There’s nothing like a pet to grounded, in love and speak in a silly baby voice! My very old dog still gets that puppy look in her eyes when she tosses her toy around. Congrats to your son.
p.s. You’re lookin’ pretty cute too. 😉
You should see my 6’2″ son playing and talking to Maya in a baby voice….why do we do that anyway? His first very own dog (not a family pet), and he’s in love. He even takes her to the pet store and lets her pick out toys! Too funny! 🙂
Jeannie! You look great! Love the pics on the golf course and Tobi! 🙂 And your son is so lucky to be getting sweet little Maya!
**Style of Sam**
Tobi is a natural…..he should be a doggie model!
Yes, my son is very lucky b/c I almost kept her for myself! 🙂
Great outfit! Fabulous pups! Welcome Maya! You’re a lucky puppy!
I would say my son is very lucky to have Maya! I sure do miss her tho…
Have a fantastic week!
First, I love your shoes, second, that poem made me tear up! I think I need a dog…
I’m sure there’s a perfect doggie just ready to save you! And, they are so much easier than kids!
I love your shoes ! They make me crazy !
Oh, that is one well loved pooch, you can tell 🙂
Yes, he’s my third child!
Hi there Ma’am !
It’s been so long since I commented on your blog.
You look stunning (as usual) !
And your dog is the cutest thing I’ve seen !
Happy little thing !
Take care ! 🙂
I’m glad to hear from you, sweetie! Yes, Tobi is a happy fella!
you are so cute!!!
Who, me? Thanks sweetie!
Maya is beautiful. I’m sure your son will adore her. Dogs are the best friends, aren’t they?
Yes, they are!!!
Maya stole his heart the moment he saw her! I spent one day with her, and I miss her already!
LOVE blazer & jeans! Walking your dog – you’re looking like one hot momma!
-Daisy Nguyen from PS BANANAS fashion blog:
Haha Thanks Daisy!
love the all black and then POP- a little leopard
what a little cutie puppy
Thank you Brett!
Black & Leopard….a winning combo, imo! 😉
As usual, you look great. There is something so chic about a blazer and jeans and you pulled it off. Congrats on your son’s adoption of Miss Maya! She is too cute and I’m sure she will be loved beyond measure!
Thank you Kachet!
Yes, my son’s very blessed to be loved by Maya and vice versa.
Sweet little Maya!
Yes, she is! My son says I’m her grandma! 😀
What a tear-jerker! I am so glad you rescued Maya; your son will love her I am sure. Our little Tito the Cat likes to be with us wherever we are too. We rescued him or he rescued us – I am not sure which! 🙂 You look fab!
I love that poem! And, SO true!
My son came up today to pick her up. He LOVES her already! She is really really sweet and loving.
Awww… Maya is so darling! She reminds me of mine when I tried adopting one from a classmate.
Tried because my mother did not like the idea of having pets. I had him for a week and renamed him, Storm was what I named him and he clinged to my legs with sad puppy eyes on the day he parted with me *sob*
Oh, so sad! Those puppy eyes can be deadly. Tobi pretty much knows how to get what he wants from me. He’s a genius manipulator! Do you have a pet now? I hear having a pet is good for your health!
Indeed, they help strengthen the immunity especially for growing children 😀 Richard and I now have 2 cats – Beary Jr. (8yo) and Rani (7yo). You can read Beary’s story here > http://jeannierichard.wordpress.com/2011/11/21/my-neon-baby/ and Rani was adopted from a private shelter. She was only 2 months, with a bad left eye, crooked tail and serious gastrointestinal issues. Today she is a 22 pound heavyweight champion and no more passing motion problems. She use to not be able to pass motion, and she would go in and out many times to no avail and we had to use children enema solution on her. Poor girl and fortunately, by God’s grace he answered our prayers – we found a suitable diet for her and now she is doing great without the need to go for an operation to cut her colon, which the vet says but not solve the problem and may even aggravate to her have loose stool instead! I will post up photos of them one day soon! 😀
Here’s another link with more photos of Beary 🙂 Enjoy! http://jeannierichard.wordpress.com/2011/12/08/pretty-beary-boy/
Beary is a cutie! God bless you for adopting and taking cared of Rani. So glad she’s okay now. What a good mamma you are!
What a fashionable li’l guy! I love it when bloggers share four-legged pics. That’s a real cutie going to live with your son, too.
Love your heels. I wish I could wear mine that high, but I can’t.
Tobi’s pretty much a constant accessory in my photos and ON my wardrobe.
Yes, my son is in heaven. Maya is just so sweet and loving. It will be fun to watch how he handles the responsibility of caring for another being who’s so dependent on him.
So nice from you to rescue the adorable Maya! Looks like she will be a happy dog, just like yours. You are lucky to be able to walk your dog with heels! Ours is a cute lab – our third kid in a sense… But she is so strong that flat shoes are mandatory when I go outside with her… Jeans, white shirt, scarf: this is my favorite walking-the-dog outfit…. Walking the dog, yes. Looking like a “rag” NO WAY!
xo from Florida,
We used to have a lab – she pulled me along, and eventually I used this with her: http://www.halti.co.uk/ HTH 🙂
Interesting! Did it work?
Tobi tends to pull me when we walk as well. I hate it b/c it pulls her collar around her neck. I was thinking about getting a chest harness, but that doesn’t solve the problem of him pulling when we walk. Thanks for the info!
Maya has a sweet disposition….so loving! My son loves her!
I’m sure you look ultra chic walking your dog in jeans, white shirt and your gorgeous scarf!
I am in love with our little rescue dog too. And like your little dog, Rockefeller loves to be with us wherever we go. I hate leaving him to alone during the day–which can not be avoided at times, obviously. I have been completely surprised by the devotion we get from this dog.
I love your bag and outfit! And I applaud your walking skills in being able to wear heels like that. : )
Can you imagine your life without Rockefeller? They are AMAZING companions.
Noooo, I do not walk Tobi in heels. I love heels but not that much!
sniff…sniff… loved the rescue a human story.
Your doggie is so adorable and Maya is just too cute!!
I know….I kinda cried, too.
Maya is a sweetie! My son fell in love immediately when he saw her, just like I did!
I love your doggie…so cute. Also love your outfit. Very stylish.
Thank you so much!
Great concept in that poem! I got my two gorgeous cats from a neighbor who found them in her yard as kittens and it is so true that pets really save us–they make us laugh on bad days and keep our hearts engaged when they might otherwise take shelter, and fully bring the best out of us. They make our children more loving and kind. They give purpose to lonely people.
And leave their white fur all over our black blazers, pants and anything else with a good contrast, just so we don’t forget.
Absolutely! Amen! Ditto!
I have this quote on my car ~ “No Outfit Is Complete Without Dog Hair!” 😀
Perfect! I need the cat hair version of that.
I just love this story 🙂 and I’m so happy you have a new member in your household! The proud owner of two dogs myself, I’ll tell you that it’s lots of fun.. never a dull moment.
.. and I’m also loving those pumps, jeans, and blazer!
Well, my grown on came home today and picked up Maya….he lives 2 hours away….I miss Maya already!
Great shoes! Cutie pie dogs. Hello Maya!
Haha, thank you!
It’s all about the shoes and our fur-kids, right? Heck yeah! 🙂
Loved your puppy!!!!! nice post

Thanks Ingrid! 🙂
I’ve never picked up a new family friend from any place other than a shelter. Our latest lil’ guy is a rescue handicap pit bull. He is amazing! Thanks for sharing your story and love for shelter animals too.
If I didn’t have to work (come on retirement!) and had unlimited income, I’d open a home for dogs and adopt all the dogs I could physically handle. I can’t imagine a life with out our little fur-kids, can you?
It’s really wonderful that you rescued a handcap dog.
Really, ’cause I too want to do that. If you look at the post, On Your Birthday….Wear a Tiara, you’ll see our rescue pit. So dang cute!
This is so sweet! I bet both of your companions are happy to have chosen you! Lucky pups for sure. We also adopted our Corgi mix. We often talk about how crazy it is how much we love him and how tuned in to our every move he is. Dogs are just amazing. Both of yours look very smart too. Hey, smart looking just like you in your blazer and jeans. 😉 I especially love your shoes today….wish I could wear heels but those would make me about 6’5 for about 15 minutes and then I’d fall down. lol
Oh, I so agree with you about dogs…they are AMAZING!
Wow, I didn’t know you were so tall! I’d give anything to be about 3 inches taller! 😉
