Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from Northside! Oscar could sense something amiss in the air…

It was time to break out Oscar’s dinosaur costume. We were happy that he got to wear his adorable dinosaur costume for a little bit…

These pictures really don’t show it but Oscar gets so mad when he has to wear his Halloween costume. We got a few photos and then it came right off. He wears his dinosaur costume just long enough to get a photo every year…

We tinkered briefly with the idea of handing out candy tonight. But it was sooo cold and sooo rainy that we decided to go to Taft’s Brewpourium to get pizza and chicken wings…

Going to Taft’s Brewpourium on Halloween is kind of becoming a yearly tradition. We did the same exact thing last year…

Taft’s pizza is so delicious. Eating pizza was a much better idea than sitting out in the cold and rain, handing out candy to strangely dressed children. And thanks for the memories, Timehop😀🦕🍬🎃❤️

Pause for paws.

Shhh… we’re resting…

Four years ago.

Our beloved bud dog passed away four years ago in the middle of the night…

It’s really hard to believe Milan’s been gone for four years now. There hasn’t been a day that’s gone by where we still haven’t missed him in bunches even after all this time. He’s still always in our thoughts each and every day. And I’m so very thankful that a couple of bud dog photos still show up in my Timehop a few times a week…

All of us still miss you so very much, Milan. You helped me through one of the roughest patches of my life and helped me come out the other side. You were always there for me. Always there with me. You were the best friend I’ve ever had. And it breaks our hearts that you’re not still here with us now. You would have loved our big house with our little backyard and our neighborhood with all the walks we take through the woods. You were definitely taken from us far too soon. 😦

Rest in peace, bud dog. I will always love you and miss you
more than words could ever possibly say. 😢

#TBT Pause for paws.

Four years ago, Milan seemed like he was feeling better and back to his old self…

Little did we know, he would pass away just a week later in the middle of the night. We miss you so much bud dog. 😥🐾❤️

#TBT Pause for paws.

Four years ago, the bud dog wasn’t feeling very well…

We thought he just came down with a bug or something. And we were hoping he’d feel better in the morning. 😥🐾❤️

Pause for paws.

Oscar was just hanging out as we tried to recover from our pizza food coma

😀🐾❤️

Pause for paws.

Genifer got Oscar this brand new cuddle nest snuggery dog bed from FurHaven Pet Products… 

And he really seems to love it! It’s like sleeping in a very comfy lil cave! 😀🐾❤

Pause for paws.

Apparently, Oscar’s new favorite place to hang out and wait for us to come home from work is on the arm of our sofa…

Oscar is so dang cute and does such ridiculously cute things. 😀🐜❤️

Pause for paws.

We walked down to Higher Gravity for a beer. And we ran into our friend, Muskie. He’s not our dog. He’s one of the owners dog, and he hangs out at Higher Gravity quite a bit. We just think he’s a really good looking little dog…

On the way home, the sunset was really pretty…

We had a pretty chill Sunday. 😀🐾🌆❤️

FC Cincinnati versus Toronto FC.

This evening our FC Cincinnati played host to Michael Bradley’s Toronto FC. But first, we stopped at Mac’s Pizza Pub for their special $5 matchday pizza…

And I wanted a grilled cheeses with some waffle fries…

And when we were done eating, we walked over to Nippert Stadium to watch our FC|C play those hosers from up north…

Jozy Altidore didn’t play in this match. I’m not even sure if he traveled with the team to Cincinnati. And that’s fine. I’ve always thought that he was really overrated. We saw him play against the Crew in Columbus. And he was just as underwhelming in person as he is with the national team.

But even terribly overrated players can scorch you when they’re left totally unmarked just outside of the 18. Like when FC|C was playing Toronto up in Canadia

Here we go…

There were fans at Nippert who booed every time Michael Bradley touched the ball. I found it to be incredibly disrespectful with all he’s done on the USMNT. I think he’s one of the better, more consistent players that our national team has had lately…

And FC Cincinnati lost 5-1. It’s just been painful.

We grabbed an Uber back to Northside Tavern for a drink…

And then we came home and walked the dogs…

It was a pretty fun evening if you take out the 5-1 loss. 😀🍕🥪⚽️🍺❤️
