I wanted to give you guys a quick update on me being MIA this week (with my track record, I’m sure you guys were thinking.. see ya in 3 months!)
We had a really hard week with our youngest pup, Conner (aka Brown Bear, aka Connie, aka Conman, aka my spirit animal). We really thought that he was going to cross over to the rainbow bridge and as you can imagine, I was devastated. I cried for 3.5 days straight, but he is working on pulling through and things are looking much better, hence, me blogging today.
Conner was rescued from a dog fighting ring, was a bait dog at a very young age (we are so very lucky he was rescued before things were too late for him). When we adopted him, he was frail, but left a lot of that horrified life behind and immediately bonded with our family (even his crazy older sister, Ella). So when this week started to unfold, we were having a hard time processing him not being with us longer.
I was telling my friend that, I think a lot of us just pretend that our fur children will live forever, so when faced with a situation that forces you to think differently, you realize how emotionally un-prepared you are. I literally have never thought of a moment that didn’t include him (or his sister, but she is for real cray, so there is a chance she actually will live forever, just to be bossy and prove everyone wrong). Luckily, it was a scare and not our reality.
So in honor of my sweet boy being with us longer, here is his sweet face over and over again.
