He gave me a deep love of Northern Breed dogs that I probably wouldn't have had if he had not wandered into my life. Ten years ago if I walked into a shelter there would have been no way I would have adopted a Special Needs dog because I wouldn't have thought I could cope with the issues. I'm not saying I cope well now, but at least I know I can get by and that it's an option. He also gave me the opportunity to learn MUCH more about the veterinary world than I otherwise would have.
Plus I just know he's teaching little Durango how to open the candy drawers as we speak. ;)
A huge thank you to all of our friends that have laughed and cried with us this past year. If there's EVER anything I can do for any of you all you need to do is ask.
Maryann (who promises to turn the blog back over to the dogs soon!)
PS...I know that this blog has been somewhat of a downer and honestly I do sometimes think about editing what I post. Nobody wants to visit and be bombarded with bad news and worry, I know I don't. I seriously thought about not posting about negative things that happen but life is what it is. There have been so many times I've used others experiences on their blogs to work my way through my own problems and I hope that by putting the bad on here with the good I can do the same for someone else. Or hell, maybe I'm just depressing, I don't know. ;)
PS Again...We have missed everyone this last week but am looking forward to catching up with our pals on their blogs.
