Life happens when you are living

It's been a few years since I last blogged. Looking back at my last post, I reflect on the many challenges I was facing, aging dogs, job change, relationship status, financial hardship. All very difficult life changing difficulties. It's no wonder I needed to take a break. Since then I have lost 3 of my life loves, Lana, Lola and Bruno. My 2 pit bulls, lived 15 lovely years, though never long enough they taught me so much about unconditional love and diversity. My Shepherd, Bruno passed almost a year ago, and I grieved him heartily. A friend once told me, "There are so many canine companions out there that need your love and can take away the heartache." While, I wasn't really ready, then came Valentina, my beautiful Boxer, and just recently Kumo a beautiful long haired Shepherd. Life happens when you are living, you just never know what curve balls it will throw you or what beautiful surprises await. "If you keep doing what you've always done, you'll keep getting what you have always gotten." Another wonderful reminder from a friend. I started changing what I was doing and how I was thinking, mostly fear based, and started living more in the present.  A new way of thinking and living life with my two wonderful companions has begun to unfold.
Bare with me while I post, it's been a while, but I will try to do my best, and hopefully keep sharing
again.                                
                                                    my happiest days start with her

her eyes as big as saucers, she gets a lot of love

and the best thing about it all is the love she gives to me

meet our new boy



                                                                    not him!

                                                       
                                                          but this beautiful boy.

to be continued… Goodnight!

I'm glad you started blogging again, and your boxer is GORGEOUS. I can't wait to get another one because they are such clowns and so loving.

You take a great picture, by the way. It's posted on my blog.

Maybe next time we'll run rather than walk into each other.

I love Valentina! Okay, I love your boy, too.

Our boxer mix Boz has been gone a little over six months. It hasn't been easy. So much love.
