Murders and puppies and failed selfies.

If you like true crime podcasts then you already know My Favorite Murder because it’s the best and you should listen to today’s minisode:

Or if you are totally creeped out by true crime then you can skip that and look at this series of selfies I tried to take that for some reason didn’t turn out well at all.

Yes, Dorothy Barker, you’re adorable. But please get your butthole out of my face.

Dottie, quit it.

Dottie.

DOTTIE.

DOTTIE!

WTF, DOG.

Jesus Christ, I give up.

On second thought, they turned out pretty perfectly after all.  Good dog.

  19. Dorothy is a natural. What is her hourly rate with expenses? Do you have a contract with her as manager? You would be wise to get it in writing as someone may steal her away from you if her career doesn’t go the way she thinks it should.

    LOL! She’s a natural 😂. I didn’t even see you in that last one. I just thought, “wow, what a great pose!” You two are adorable.

    As for the podcast, I will definitely check it out! I listen to several other true crime ones and I’m always in search of more! By the way, you mentioned Matt Bellassai had a postcast awhile back and I’m hooked on that one! I used to watch his videos on Facebook, so it’s a nice addition when I need a break from all the murder and mayhem.

    I’m not a medical expert, by any means, but I believe the treatments you are receiving are working. There is a “lightness” and an apparent level of joy in your look that wasn’t there before. I see it even in these photos where Dorothy is hogging the camera, but your light shines through where Dorothy has allowed your face to peek from behind her.

    Now, I personally know how depression lies and fucks with the brain, so I am NOT saying you were a hideous troll previously. There’s just a noticeable difference in your appearance. It reminds me of my friend who dealt with a terrible cancer; you could see the stress, fear, and exhaustion of dealing with it in his face. When he received the all clear, his face changed. The stress, fear, and exhaustion was gone.

    I’m so happy for you and adore you!
