Merry Mississippi Christmas 17 Dec 2014, 8:56 am

Merry Christmas from Mississippi, or should I say, Merry Mississippi Christmas!?

Our sweet friends over at Thimblepress coined this fun term...and we're simply loving it. 

Early this year we had the fun idea to team up with a few local professionals and create a fun styled shoot featuring seasons in Mississippi..first up: Mississippi Christmas.
Stay tuned to see the next in this fabulous series, "Celebration of the Seasons at the Fairview Inn" coming in March!
*we took these in late November and it was a casual 75 degrees that day..welcome to the Sip y'all!*

Moving on, so we partnered with a some talented minds and created this fun styled shoot featuring Mississippi products. Confete Events helped coordinate the details, and the event shoot came together beautifully if I do say so myself.

Special thanks to each and every vendor (full list at the bottom of this post). Also, y'all make sure and snag a few of these Merry Mississippi products from Thimblepress before they're all gone.

Cheers to the holiday season and I hope you enjoy a few of these fun snaps from our                    Merry Mississippi Christmas shoot!

Suri Explores Belhaven Neighborhood 8 Dec 2014, 8:42 am

Suri loves a good walk, especially after she has her laser treatment for her Legg-Perthes disease! 

She especially loves stopping by two particular landmarks in Belhaven:
 Eudora Welty House & Simon's Park. 

Suri gets lots of compliments from fellow walkers as she prisses through the neighborhood with her mom, Tamar. She loves that she was adopted by parents who live in such a beautiful neighborhood, and who love her so much they take her for unlimited walks so she can explore her surroundings. 

If you missed reading about Suri's history and her adoption story, make sure and check it out! 

Stay tuned, because next up Suri is going to show you how she helps out house-keeping and makes room-check rounds with her mom.

Life at the Inn really is grand for Suri! 

Stop by soon to see what happens behind the scenes at the Inn!

Meet Suri, the Fairview Inn Pup 5 Dec 2014, 6:52 am

Suri was adopted on July 14, 2014 from a Chinese Crested and Powder Puff rescue organization called Bald is Beautiful. At the time of her adoption, Suri (which means little princess in Hebrew) was 10 months old. Suri was surrendered to the rescue agency by her owner because she had two ailing parents to care for. Suri’s foster mom lived in Greenville, South Carolina and contacted the Sharp’s when she read their adoption application. 
The Sharp’s had just lost their 14 year old Powder Puff, named Fluff, in March of 2014. The foster mom felt Suri would be a perfect fit for the Fairview Inn because Suri loved to prance around and be admired. The match was made and Peter and Tamar drove to Macon, Georgia to meet and greet Suri for the first time. 
It was love at first sight.

Suri is fed only homemade organic food. Tamar began preparing food for Fluff when she was diagnosed at age 7 with liver disease. This is what kept Fluff alive on a liver functioning at less than 25%. One of Suri’s favorite recipes is Spots Stew. Suri’s diet is also made up of 5% organ meant which can be gizzards, liver, tripe or turkey hearts. She also loves sardines which provides her with her Omega 3 fatty acids necessary for so many body functions.
In September, 2014 Suri started crying when her back left leg was lifted for grooming or if it was caught on something. The veterinarian diagnosed her with Legg-Perthes disease, which is also called avascular necrosis. Basically the blood flow stopped feeding her left back hip joint and she had bone-on-bone rubbing in that area. Legg-Perthes is common in small breeds. Dr. Mike Watson of Magnolia Animal Clinic offered the family two options, try veterinary prescribed glucosamine to rebuild the cartlidge and reform the bone along with Class IV Laser treatments which lowers inflammation and pain or surgery. 

Tamar and Peter opted for the less invasive treatment. Suri also went to Dr. Barbra Allen of Alternative Veterinary care for acupuncture treatments which accelerates circulation like the laser only at a great level. Two weeks ago, Suri had another x-ray which confirmed that the supplements, laser and acupuncture were working. Her bones were reforming and when given a range of motion exam, her pain was considerably less. 
Everyone at the Inn can tell the difference in Suri’s behavior since she began her treatments. She is full of energy and can stand on her back legs like a circus dog.
