Moving With Furkids!

To call the experience stressful would be an understatement. You see, with humans, you know what’s wrong. You know they will be uncomfortable emotionally but they will eat, sleep, and perform as usual. Furkids, on the other hand, are completely random. The first time I moved with Shinobii, our cat, she didn’t come out from…

My Career Purpose…

To be honest, for the past year and a half, I had completely forgotten. My mind was focused on building a career at my current job.  When I applied, I knew it wasn’t my dream but I believed it could take me there. I work in the legal department and during my initial interview I…

Mystii Update

Fast forward a couple of weeks, forgive the lack of updates, and enjoy: Mystii weights nearly 20 pounds now. She is fully recovered from kennel cough. She is no longer lethargic. She doesn’t have the scary coughs. We can confidently say: She is healed. *Insert massive sigh of relief* It didn’t happen magically though, there…

Mystii Falls In The Pool!ย 

The day we had been waiting for was finally upon us. We visited my mother-in-law’s home and we were ready to go in the pool. We started off by taking all of Mystii’s toys outside and spread them around the pool deck.  We put the life vest on Mystii and let her roam freely around…

Mystii Dables In The Water!

Since the first day Mystii entered our lives, we knew we wanted her to learn how to swim. Honestly, our goal is to teach her different skills so she can go on all sorts of adventures with us. At the doggy park, they have a small pool set up to help the dogs cool down…

Mystii Goes To The Doggy Park!

At this point, she’s been to the doggy park about four times. And she couldn’t love it any more! The dog park we travel to is about 20 minutes away, so we take turns during the drive as to who will carry Mystii. For the most part, I’m stuck driving since my hubby is on…

Mystii Has An Existential Crisis

It was 4 in the morning when Mystii started crying to go outside.  I took her out but as soon as I came back in, Phoebe started crying. I dropped off Mystii in the room and put out her water/food bowls.  My hubby was in bed but I forgot to let him know Mystii was…

๏ปฟMystii Survives Kennel Cough

Last Saturday, the day we brought Mystii home, she had a light cough. It was very repetitive but it wasn’t too loud. They had warned us she might have a bit of kennel cough, so we didn’t think too much of it. On Sunday, she woke up still not wanting to eat but she did drink…

Mystii Meets Phoebe, Our Friends, and Plays Games

Well technically, she tries to eat and sleep on the games though. Every Sunday, we usually spend it with my mother in law and my mom. The previous Sunday was no exception. Everyone wanted to meet Mystii and traveled to my mother-in-law’s house to gather. Prior to us meeting them, we prepared her to travel…

Meet: Mystii

Our new family member. Shinobii’s sister. Our daughter. Saturday morning, we traveled about an hour away from home to meet available puppies up for adoption by a rescue group in our area. We opted for a puppy taking into consideration the chaos we endured trying to train an adult dog. Additionally, since we already have…

Filling an Empty Void

What?!? When?!? And whyyy?!? What happened to the pain? When did you decide it was the right call to make? And why so soon? I’m sure those are some of the main questions you’re asking right now. Allow me to explain: So what happened to my pain?ย  It’s been with me for years, not just…

The Day I understood Relinquishment…

I never understood. I could never comprehend. How could someone just leave their cat? Their dog? How could they abandon them in uncertainty? What if they got sick? Who would protect them? How could they possibly continue living knowing that they had abandoned a part of themselves? How? How can you even begin to do…
