Seven years ago today I met one of the great loves of my life. I had already fallen in love with him through email and photos and stories of how special he was, and meeting him in real life for the first time just sealed the deal. His first kisses solidified in my heart that… Continue reading Jackson the Labrador’s 7 Year Gotchaversary
Category: Life with Jackson & Tinkerbell
Life with Jackson and Tinkerbell is about my black Labrador Retrievers. They are the inspiration for this blog. I started to develop the Love Laugh Woof lifestyle when Jackson came home as an eight-week-old puppy. I looked at him and realized that he was so new to the world that I could start him off without toxins and chemicals in his life. They are my best friends and constant companions. I like to share their stories to help teach other dog owners. Life with Jackson and Tinkerbell includes plenty of love, fun, and above all, laughter.
Jackson is the strong silent type in a dog body, and Tinkerbell is silly and full of energy. Jackson is sweet and serious and has a naturally serious look on his face. He is the smartest dog I have ever met and consequently tricks Tinkerbell frequently. Tinkerbell is sweet and gullible and falls for Jackson’s tricks all the time. Both dogs know a lot of words and are trained to do things like come running when they hear the tornado siren. They love to go on adventures and walks. Tinkerbell’s mission in life is to play with Jackson and always be by his side.
The blogs in this category showcase the friendship that I have with Jackson and Tinkerbell and the love that spans our species. I hope that by sharing their stories that I can above all encourage other people to develop the same love and friendship with their own dogs because dogs are able to provide so much love. .

I prefer to follow the more positive, manifesting-good-stuff-from-the-universe mindset that everything is going to be awesome and work out. But then Murphy's Law strikes...you know, the whole "whatever can go wrong, will go wrong" nonsense. As far as dogs are concerned, Murphy's… Continue reading A Sick Dog on a Sunday
Jackson’s Awkward Snuggling
Jackson's Awkward Snuggling by Lynn Stacy-Smith If you've read my book or followed my blogs, you know that when Jackson was just two and a half weeks old, he sustained a broken leg. It was a freak accident in which his mother must have leaned on him in just the wrong way with her elbow… Continue reading Jackson’s Awkward Snuggling

Jax, Tink and Canine Standard Time
Jax, Tink and Canine Standard Time by Lynn Stacy-Smith Although Daylight Savings Time ended over three weeks ago, for Jackson and Tinkerbell the time change just happened two weeks ago when my husband and I returned home from two weeks out-of-town. It has not been an easy transition. To say that Jax and Tink are… Continue reading Jax, Tink and Canine Standard Time
