Puppy Love

They start out as puppies and grow into dogs! They come in all different shapes and sizes and most are loveable, cuddly companions! They hold a special spot inside the family!
In my whole family we have had a mixture of diffident types of dogs. From big and small to hyper and lazy! All of which hold a special place in my heart!
First Fenway Frank Hadley, he was my family first family dog. He was a miniature Dachshund. We unfortunately lost him in December 2015. It was a very heartbreaking time for me! Fenway and I had such a unbreakable bond. (Please read my very first post. Which is dedicated to Fenway and what an impact he made in my life! https://hadleybooks.com/2017/07/01/fenway-frank)
Then came Scout and Boo who are both Miniature Dachshund as well. These two pups belong to my oldest sister. Boo and Scout were named after my sisters’ favorite book “To Kill A Mockingjay” written by Harper Lee. Both pups came back with my sister when she moved back to Massachusetts from California. Boo lives with another sister. While Scout lives with me and the rest of the clan. Scout and I picked up right where it left off with our special bond. He is my shadow everywhere I go and will be right there waiting to cuddle every chance he gets. Boo is loving life with his life being the center of attention where he lives.
The forth dog to enter our lives was Captain or Cap for short. We got him exactly a month after the passing of Fenway. Even though we were not planning on getting another dog until Spring. We heard of Captain through a family friend, who was helping to find a perfect home for him. His owner loved him, however unexpectedly couldn’t take care of him. Captain needed a good, loving home. We went to go see him and fell instantly in love with him. Captain is a lab/hound mix or Super Mut. He is big and strong but just a big baby when it comes down to it. He enjoys his cuddles and belly rubs and his laps around the house. He has a big intimating bark but will lick you to death if he knows you!
The 5th dog is Penny, Penny belongs to another sister of mine. She is a lab/Pitbull mix and is the most well-behaved dog I have ever met. Penny is playful and could spend hours outside playing and chasing animals of the golf course where her dad works. However, at the end of the day she enjoys cuddling super close to my sister and taking a good long nap. I love it when she visits, and we get a chance to cuddle as well!
Last but not least, is Madeline or Maddie for short. She is my grandparents poodle. She was named after my grandmother’s favorite children’s book “Madeline” written by Ludwig Bemelmans. Maddie loves people and food. Even at the old age of 14 years old, she is still waging her tail and as peppy as ever!
From Fenway Frank to Captain & Penny to Boo & Scout to Maddie all of these dogs have a special place in my heart! From great puppy cuddles and puppy kisses to listening to my deepest secrets, there is nothing that compares to having a dog! Never mind a Mans best friend! These dogs are a girl’s best friend!!


Bridget, Bridge, B, Auntie B, Auntie Bridget (when my 2-year-old niece is mad at me). I go by many names but I will always answer to all of them. I am a 22 year-old purchasing assistant that just loves to read. Books to me are a way to escape from everything but on the other hand learn about everything. 

I figured if I am becoming a blogger, I want my followers to know me better to understand where I come from and some of my favorite things.  

Here are some important and fun facts about myself:  

1.) Hometown: Dracut 

2.) Favorite Color: Orange  

3.) Favorite Subject: Reading/ English 

4.) Favorite Band: Jonas Brothers 

5.) Favorite Female Singer: Demi Lovato  

6.) Favorite Male Singer: Luke Bryan  

7.) Favorite Song: Sorry Not Sorry 

8.) Favorite Book Right Now: “Becoming” by Michelle Obama 

9.) Favorite Role: Becoming an Aunt to my two nieces  

Last but not least  

10.) Most important thing to me is: My family and friends! Oh and dogs! I love dogs!!  

I am the youngest out of seven children and love being a part of a large family. I have two nieces that are the two of the best little girls in the world. I love them to death. I also have two doggies Captain America and Scout. They are just amazing!! My family is my biggest support system and I wouldn’t be where I am today without them. I love them all so much!  

I went to a trade high school and majored in Business Technology. I got my Associates degree in Business and my dream is to one day be the CEO of my own company or brand. I am still at my first place of employment, which I got through the Co-op program at school. I am a Purchasing Assistant at a local lumber yard, Friend Lumber. I absolutely love my job and co-workers. They took a chance on me and I cannot thank them enough. 

I stand at a tall 4’3” and I am very proud of this fact. I have a condition called Noonan Syndrome and short stature is one of the many side effects. However, I have never let it define who I am. It has actually made me push harder and try harder for everything that I have and want to achieve in life and for that I am incredible proud and humble.  

I am a hardworking, dedicated, fast learning individual who loves to make people laugh and loves to laugh myself.  

Once again, I can’t wait to go on a journey with you as we all embrace the importance of reading and learning!!
