Hey Copper!

Since I have been in lazy mode these last few weeks of pregnancy, I have rekindled my relationship with Netflix. There was a period where they lost the rights to one of the shows I had been half way through and I gave them the silent treatment. That moody phase has disintegrated and I've since found some shows that I not only like, I fell deeply in love with.

Yes, deeply. Maybe because the main actor was a steamy dreamboat of hotness or maybe because it was actually a well written and well done show. Okay, a mix of all of those things. Today, I want to introduce you to Copper.


Tom Weston-Jones (steamy dreamboat of hotness) plays the main character, an Irish immigrant, Detective Kevin (Corky) Corcoran.

This man is on fire!! I loved him in "As the World Ends" (also on Netflix). Seeing him as a ruthless copper in 1860's New York put me in swoon overdrive.

Kevin is on a mission. He not only wants to crack down on crime in Five Points, New York, he also wants to solve a mystery very close to his heart. His wife's gone missing and his little girl was murdered.

If you like CSI or Criminal Minds, you will love this. It's an 1860's version that blew my mind away. The characters are colorful and exciting. The setting is rugged and believable. The mix of drama and crime solving is a perfect blend. Seriously, you don't want to miss this one!  Copper is currently airing it's second season on BBC America (which much to my displeasure we do not have here in California). Luckily the whole first season is available to stream on Netflix. Honestly, it's so good I might watch it again. (Mainly to stare and drool over Tom Weston-Jones). Hey, at least I am being "real" with you guys! I'll already know what happens so I can just concentrate on the eye candy this time around.

If you love history and crime shows, you can't go wrong with this gem!

Hiatus Over & Why I Was Gone So Long

I am going to sum up my hiatus with one adorable picture:

No, I wasn't just distracted by his cuteness. This little dude suffered a terrible spinal injury while being micro-chipped. No one was at fault. The accident was simply a freak accident. Tragic, but rare and totally a freak thing. Surgery was done and I can say he is recovering well. But, his healing process is a long one and I have never worked with or rehabilitated a partially paralyzed animal before. This is a first for me and I am learning so much.  My shelter is so lucky to have such an amazing and talented vet staff.

I also want to thank the human mom of Waverly McTinybeans for all her advice and taking the time to give it. I know she is a super busy lady and I appreciated every tip.

I have spoken to multiple vets, RVT's and watched every youtube video I could find to help give this guy the best physical therapy I am able. He starts acupuncture sessions next week and little by little he makes progress. His left si…

#Writemotivation Week 1 Update

It is that time again! I missed March =(, but I am back with a vengeance for May! Here are my goals for this month:

I have been fostering these two adorable house panthers since they were two weeks old. At around four weeks of age I started to noticed something wrong with the little male's left eye.

I contacted my foster coordinator who had me bring him in so our in house vet could take a look at him. She was a bit baffled at what could be causing it so we tested him for various illnesses/cat diseases and they all came back negative. At four weeks old there isn't a lot we could do except wait and see what happened and how the eye developed. After another week I could tell he didn't seem to have vision in that eye and slowly the entire eye globe started to swell. Well, I woke up last Tuesday morning to this:
The vet had me bring him back in and it was apparent the eye would need to be removed. We did not know if it could be a tumor or glaucoma or what the heck the poor little dude had going on. The only issue was that he was tiny and only 1.5 lbs. Typically it isn't that great to do …
