Things have been rough in our house for the past few years. I’ve been suffering from several health issues, physical and mental, that have been interfering with every day life. These are issues that I’ve kept pretty quiet, but I’m learning the best way to move on is to talk about them. I feel like I’ve been trapped in a tiny bubble for the past few years. I work as a nanny, partly because I love it and partly because I don’t have to wear “real clothes” to work. My friendship circle is limited because I’m sick a lot or at the doctors. Things have been rough, but there are three things that have kept me going: my husband, Mauja, and Atka. [Read more…] about Bonding with Atka
“Let’s take the dogs to the river!”
That was my brilliant exclamation that lead to a morning long adventure. [Read more…] about Mosquitoes, Parades, and the River
This is a story from last summer, but it’s too cute to not share. When we got Mauja, we were living on the central coast of California. I absolutely loved the weather. Shorts and flip flops on Christmas? Score! Mauja did great in the weather, but I’m sure she was happy when the Air Force gave us orders to move to Montana. A much better climate for a pyr 🙂
Where we are stationed in Montana is about 3 hours from Glacier National Park. If you’re not familiar, it is beautiful. Definitely the most beautiful place I have ever been. [Read more…] about What’s This White Stuff?
We’re always on the lookout for new treats. I make my own treats for the pups, but sometimes I like the convenience of prepackaged treats. I was looking for a new grain-free treat and came across Buddy Biscuits. I was particularly drawn to their “soft & chewy” treats. For those of you who aren’t familiar with pyrs, they are independent and don’t enjoy doing commands. [Read more…] about Give Me That Treat – Buddy Biscuits
What’s our number one way to beat the summer heat? A pyr pool party, of course! When I say “summer heat”, I mean spring semi-warmth. This weekend was about 65 degrees and it felt like summer here in Montana! After a long and awful winter, a sunny and 60 degree weekend was exactly what we needed. [Read more…] about Pyr Pool Party
My husband had this wonderful idea.
“Let’s get a desk since you’re spending so much time on your computer lately.”
It was true. I have been glued to my laptop for the past few weeks. Between starting a new blog, wedding planning, and getting organized to start volunteering with Big Dogs Huge Paws and the Great Falls Animal Shelter, I have been spending a lot of time online.
