An Angel Sent In (Finding Lost Animals)

Big new for Chris and I! We celebrated our 5 year Anniversary last Friday! ❤

However, before we took our weekend getaway, Ash had an appointment with the vet to see how his healing was coming along. Unfortunately, he isn’t yet healed and actually had swelling so we were forced to make him stay in a small kennel while we were away. Our roommate was nice enough to look after him while we were gone.

He slept like a baby on the way to the vet and back. 🙂

While waiting in the office, Chris and I witnessed something amazing!
An elderly man walked inside holding a beautiful, full-grown Malamute. We were so intrigued, we listened in on what he was telling the women at the front desk. He explained that the dog had been wandering across the Highway, and the owner was no where to be found. Chris and I looked at each other, and wanted desperately to reach out and claim the gorgeous dog.

They took him back to be scanned for a microchip, they didn’t find one.
The nurses asked the man if he wanted to take the dog home, or leave him with them to see if he would be claimed. The man exchanged information and said that he wanted the dog if no one came looking for him. Chris and I were heartbroken! However, reality sunk in that the cost of 3 dogs, 2 of which would be large Malamute/Husky,  and Malamutes having more fur than Ash already has being the slender, less fluffy dog he is…it just didn’t seem smart.

We left the Vet office so upset we couldn’t take him home with us. We sat in the car for a good 5 minutes battling whether or not we should go back in and request to take his picture. We just really wanted to remember how pretty he was.

Hungry & Distraught


“Mom…Dad, you can’t go to Christmas dinner and just leave me here! After all I’ve been through this week? “

Poor Thing…







I’d like to apologize for being so scarce this week. 

This week however, has been the busiest we have experienced this entire year!

The week started with finishing up Ash’s vaccinations, and rabies shot.
Honey showed up with a hurt leg, so that was another trip to the vet…

but what really made this week FUN is the neutering Ash was unlucky enough to go through.


The entire car ride home, he would not look me in the eyes. Mind you, the trip was 1 hour!



Of course, we expect to be forgiven in another week or so…

Ash has been causing us hell, that’s for sure. Instead of staying over-night at the Vet office, he came home with us hours after his surgery. We were given instructions not to let him act his usual self (easy enough, right? No…) He isn’t supposed to jump around playfully, or run at all. It doesn’t help that he still isn’t trained on the leash well enough for us to let him to from the kennel to go potty.

How do people neuter and spay their puppies, I mean REALLY!?

So, we have Ash’s big kennel outside on the porch, he has a bed with sheets, and a bowl of water, but he has spent the last few days being out there, DESTROYING the plastic e-collar we payed $30 for. We finally had to purchase dog sedatives so that he would calm down. He was feeling too much like his normal self, and that isn’t going to help him heal at all….

P.S. Did I mention the emergency trip back to the vet after seeing blood?
Ash, why are you being difficult? :/

Visits to the Vet make me Nervous

The other day at the vet, Ash was getting weighed, and a pit bull in a cage was going crazy barking at him. It made Ash act in a way I’ve never seen. He actually barked and he has NEVER barked. All of these misbehaved dogs around us are affecting Ash. We could hardly contain him! He wanted to run for the hills, or just cower under Chris.

But hey, he was there long enough for us to discover he is 55 pounds.


Best When Loved

Who doesn’t love coming home to big-eyed cuddle pals, who have been awaiting your return since you first left the house?

There’s no better feeling than getting spoiled with love from the pups.
