From Lola with Love

Hi everyone! It’s me, Lola. I haven’t posted on my fur mom’s blog in a while, so I figured it was time to share some pictures.

Have I mentioned that I’m a pretty relaxed little gal? I’m content to sit around and watch my fur parents eat dinner each night. This is one of my favorite sitting positions…


My fur parents laugh at me for some reason? I don’t get it.

Anyways, I sat on my fur dad’s lap the other night and it was awesome. I usually snuggle with my fur mom, but she was out pet sitting that night. I get kind of huffy when she comes home and smells like other dogs. Rude.


The only time it’s okay with me that my fur mom pet sits is when she brings my friends over for a play date. This week she brought Haley over and we went on a walk. We’re basically twins, except her fur is brown and mine is black.


Wherever there’s food, I’m there. My fur mom was eating her lunch on the couch the other day, so I hopped up next to her and waited patiently to see if she would feed me any crumbs. Sometimes I get lucky, sometimes I don’t. I never steal food, though. I used to back in the puppy days. I’m way more sophisticated now.


Well, I better get going. I have a long day ahead of me. I need to eat my breakfast, nap, and protect the house while my fur parents are working. I’ll leave you with one last picture of me. I was on a walk this week and just wanted to soak up the sunshine.


It was a great day. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Things I want to remember

Giving a devotional on the book of Esther at my church. I loved it! I’m so glad my mom could come, too. She had to do some unexpected traveling that day for a family emergency, but made sure she saw me speak first. Thanks, mom! If anyone wants me to post about the actual devotional, I would love to.


How hard working and talented my husband is. Kitchen renovations have been happening in the Zottola household!


How wonderfully challenging it is to write and edit a book.


How much I adore animals. Everything about them makes me so happy. I would love to have another dog. And a cat or two. I just need to convince Jimmy😉.

Pet sitting

How lovely freshly baked bread and cookies smell and taste.


That I can’t trust Lola as much as I’d like to. The little miss has been quite the escape artist lately! I was mowing the lawn on Saturday and she snuck out our back door (while Jimmy was working on our kitchen renovations) and blew past me. I ran after her and thankfully caught her. Jimmy carried her home and she looked so guilty. It was actually really cute, haha. It’s comforting to know she still has lots of spunk, even though she’s almost 10-years-old.


And just for fun, one thing I’d like to forget is the feeling of accidentally dropping our oven on my foot while Jimmy and I were moving it. I thought about posting a picture buuuuut I don’t think anyone really wants to see it😉.
