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.
