.We met this big fella today, but it wasn't under the best circumstance. This gentle giant's parents brought him in as a way to celebrate his life and to tell him goodbye. A tumor in his leg has spread to his lungs and he now only has 2-3 months left to live. They're celebrating everyday that they have left with him and enjoying every single moment they have left with their big boy until he's no longer on their couch, at the foot of their bed, or at the front door to welcome them home.
“I am your dog, and I have a little something I’d like to whisper in your ear.
I know that you humans lead busy lives. Some have to work, some have children to raise.
It always seems like you are running here and there, often much too fast, often never noticing the truly grand things in life.
Look down at me now, while you sit there at your computer. See the way my dark brown eyes look at yours? They are slightly cloudy now. That comes with age. The gray hairs are beginning to ring my soft muzzle.
You smile at me; I see love in your eyes. What do you see in mine? Do you see a spirit? A soul inside, who loves you as no other could in the world? A spirit that would forgive all trespasses of prior wrong doing for just simple moment of your time? That is all I ask… to slow down, if even for a few minutes to be with me.
So many times you have been saddened by the words you read on that screen, of other of my kind, passing. Sometimes we die young and oh so quickly, sometimes so suddenly it wrenches your heart out of your throat.
Sometimes, we age so slowly before your eyes that you may not even seem to know until the very end, when we look at you with grizzled muzzles and cataract clouded eyes. Still the love is always there, even when we must take that long sleep, to run free in a distant land.
I may not be here tomorrow; I may not be here next week. Someday you will shed the water from your eyes, that humans have when deep grief fills their souls, and you will be angry at yourself that you did not have just “One more day” with me. Because I love you so, your sorrow touches my spirit and grieves me. We have NOW, together. So come, sit down here next to me on the floor, and look deep into my eyes. What do you see?
If you look hard and deep enough we will talk, you and I, heart to heart. Come to me not as “alpha” or as “trainer” or even “Mom or Dad,” come to me as a living soul and stroke my fur and let us look deep into one another’s eyes, and talk.
I may tell you something about the fun of chasing a tennis ball, or I may tell you something profound about myself, or even life in general. You decided to have me in your life because you wanted a soul to share s

When you realise it STILL isn’t friday😂
His head fluff actually kills me😭😍
Bit of real life talk today.
I haven’t actually said much about this on here.. but on Monday, Archie is off to have the ‘dreaded’ snip.
I’m sooo nervous, and I’m sure I’m making much more of a huge deal than even Archie will about it😂 but it’s the first time he will of had a ‘proper’ visit to the vets, and.. well.. he’s our baby!!
There may be lots of different views & opinions on the matter, but one thing is for sure.. we all do our best & what is right for our pups, in every possible way that we can🧡🐾
Who else has a major stress when their dogs have to go through something? I can’t be the only one surely?!😂
