I Thought I Was Ready But...

It's been a long time.  I thought I was ready to return to regular
posting after a very difficult ending to 2015.  I wasn't.  I didn't
realize that more turmoil would hit us only a month into 2016.  Our
household became consumed with grief, estates, family issues and
everything else that comes with sudden loss.  Everything that was not
a necessity in my life stopped.  It had to.  This blog was forgotten,
until now.  There was no time or energy for it.  Well, 2 years later
and I have a new outlook.  Big life events will do that to a person.
They change you.  The goal for me was to make that "change" as much of
a change for the better as humanly possible.  With that in mind, and
in rethinking this blog, I decided I wanted to head in a new direction
with my writing.  I still have a passion for dogs and all animals.
That will surely never change.  But now I think I want to take this
blog in a more socially impactful direction if possible.  I have no
idea how this will end up playing out, but I'd like to start
sharing/posting on topics that require greater attention and change in
the animal world.  I hope my faithful blog friends will appreciate
this change of course from me.  Please let me know.

Our now "angel" Piper

 
In other news, we sadly lost our beloved Piper in May of 2017 to
cancer.  He was his "full of life", happy self right up until the end.
One day he decided it was enough, we listened to him (and his very
skilled doctor) and helped our boy over Rainbow Bridge.  He is now and
forever out guardian guy.  Georgie has grown up and adjusted A LOT.
She's very smart and a very vocal girl lol.  Great Pyrenees love to
bark!  Murray is doing well.  We had a small scare with him a few
months ago when his doctor found he was losing blood platelets quite
fast with no explanation as to why.  With a lot of prayer, positivity
and antibiotics to treat what we deducted had to be a tick borne
disease as the culprit, his platelets are now back to normal.  We're
so very thankful.  So dare I say all is better in our lives.  We are
on the healing path and are feeling in a much more positive place
these days.  Thank you to all who kept us in your thoughts and
prayers.  They sure helped pull us through.

Loss, Grief, New Beginnings And A New Dog

Days after my last post in November, I very unexpectedly (and dramatically) lost my mom.  Everything shut down for me, and this blog was on that "everything" list.  To say life is forever changed is an understatement, but in the past 6 weeks I have started to heal.  Some of the healing was forced upon me because we immediately inherited my mom's 9 month old Great Pyrenees puppy, Georgie, and she doesn't allow time for sadness lol.  Life has been...busy.  But, with a new year approaching quickly, new energy in our house and a new idea and direction for this blog, I am back.  For the time being I want to post mostly photos.  I have found playing around with my camera to be lots of fun, and pretty relaxing.  I am learning along the way, but I hope to be able to post some decent pictures through this year.  Last night we got our first snowfall, so today we had a snow photoshoot!
