So here I am again… not posting like I wanted to. I’m going to try really hard this time to do better. It may just be me typing out my feelings one day, or if I get enough pictures, maybe a “what I pack my kids for lunch”. I’m also getting into planners so that may be something I post about. In other words this is going to be a blog about anything, and everything. 🙂 hope you enjoy and I would love to know what you would like to see.
So life has been crazy lately… and that’s a big reason why I haven’t posted. I know when I did my first post my pup of 13 years had just passed away from cancer. A few months after that happened we ended up rescuing a beagle pup. He has turned out to be more of a lump of fur than an actual dog. He is one of the laziest dogs I know. He seriously lays on the couch all day, and I’m okay with that!!
So my husband is big on hunting. He had recently taken up duck hunting, and wanted to get a dog to retrieve ducks. So we drove around one day looking at shelters. We had almost given up on the day when we pulled in to one last shelter. And there she was… way off in the corner. A gourgous black lab pup. We spent about an hour outside playing with her, and we all instantly fell in love with her. I knew we needed to take her home with us.
Man she has been an absolute handful. She loves getting into everything, and really loves chewing on hands. Ouch!! But she is So smart. She has picked up on sit, heel, and stay, but of course being a puppy it wasn’t for very long. Unfortunately she was sick and we had no idea.
She never gave any signs of being sick. And we don’t know for sure if that’s what it was, but she passed away a week ago. We are still heartbroken, and trying to figure out what really happened. Unfortunately we will never know. She was only 8 months old, but lived a great 3 months with us.
I am a big believer in the quote “everything happens for a reason.” Somehow God new that we needed to bring her home with us. That we could give her an amazing 3 months! It’s now so quiet again in the house, but I know she is in a better place. And it’s slowly getting easier to deal with. Just know if you are struggle, it will get easier. I have learned to not sit and wonder. You will just make yourself sick. It’s okay to move on. 🙂
