It is my hope that you are quarantined with your favorite people and pets! Those that make you laugh, that make you feel good... the ones you'd choose to be with in this type of situation.
The saying: "You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with" has never had such meaning!!!
Our sweet, old dog died in January, and my husband wasn't really ready to jump back in the ring when I was, but he, as a good husband does, rolled with my wishes and on 2/17/20, we became parents again...
Thank GOD! I can't imagine this whole situation without our amazing Moji. He definitely has brought more mojo into our lives, which is actually the word from which we derived his name.
He makes me laugh multiple times a day.
He distracts me from the distressing news.
He forces me to go outside and be with nature more.
He keeps me busy cleaning up after him & teaching him manners.
He makes my heart melt when I see him love on my husband.
This stay-at-home order would be so much worse if it were...
I want to share WHY I decided to get a puppy at 61 years of age...
Some may think that is too old to take on a puppy. Some may have thoughts that a new puppy could outlive them. Some may think that having a puppy is hard work. Some may think having a puppy is too restrictive.
Well, I tend to look for the pros and not the cons in every situation. Maybe It's the optimist in me... Or maybe it's my ability to always believe in the positive potential in my choices.
You've probably heard that what you focus on expands... Well, that mindset has served me very well in life!
After my 15 1/2 year old Chihuahua passed in January, I began thinking about getting another dog. And to be honest, I had to talk my husband into it. He was not ready to jump right back into parenthood.
But I KNEW a puppy would bring lots of extra love and laughter to our home. And who doesn't want more of THAT?
Of course work comes along with it, but the amount of laughter my husband and I have shared in this very difficult...
