You can take the dog out of Norway, but you can’t (and would never want to) take the Norway out of the dog.
I haven’t been able to get this picture out of my head. I’m never happier than when Finna’s happy, and, having been born into snow for the first 6 months of her life, how can she not be super happy when it snows? This past year has been so rough, full of so much pain and inexplicable disappointment for her, that my heart hurt for happiness with her during the first big snow this week.
Exactly one year ago, Finna partially tore her CCL for the first time. Over the next 5 months, she continually re-tore and fully ruptured the ligament, as well as absolutely obliterating her meniscus.
We didn’t know.
When she finally had the Ex-Cap surgery, she had already spent the entire winter inside, forbidden from playing fetch, and becoming increasingly depressed to the point of losing most of her outer long coat of fur and refusing to wag her tail.
To anyone who says that animals do not feel as we do, I tell you that you are wrong.
This year, we are allowed to play. We are allowed to frolic through the snow. We have gone on long walks, even short jogs, we have found doggy-friends to romp with. We are allowed to play fetch at shorter distances, we have come back to sporadic archaeology work. *Everything* about this year is better.
But the best thing is that her tail is wagging. Constantly.
She is so happy. You only have to look into her eyes to see it.
Don’t let this picture fool you!
Although he looks like ‘‘butter wouldn’t melt’’ he certainly is a:
-destroyer of all things squeaky, fluffy or soft 🧸
-eater of ‘’yellow’’ snow ❄️
-stealer of socks and shoes 🧦👠
-chewer of all things that shouldn’t or you thought couldn’t be consumed ⚽️🏓
-chaser of many squirrels 🐿
-eater of food on the counter 🥩
-And... most of all best giver of puppy-dog eyes! 👀
Being a cuddly baby boo as always. I have way to much love for this girl. But it goes both ways.
She is so smart and so emotionally connected to me. She always knows when I am down. And she will always try her best to cheer me up. By giving me cuddles or just coming to sit with me. Sometimes when I am emotional she will lick me and stare into my eyes. Like she is telling me it will be okay.
Does anyone else have a strong emotional bond like this with their baby ?

I started taking probiotics to help keep my tummy healthy. It’s soo good for me and it’s flavorless — even the pickiest of eaters like it. I’m so glad we found a brand we can trust in @ferapetorganics. They make the best of the best USDA Certified Organic, 100% vegan, grain-free, no soy, corn or dairy. No artificial colors, dyes or preservatives. #pupfluencer#ferapetorganics
