    Pups

    Dogs are incredibly smart and empathic. Ben (my big guy) has been able to sniff out my cortisol levels for years and tell me when I need to take more medication. Jones knows when I need emotional support and comes to comfort me. They know when someone in their pack is unwell and dying. Poor dogs have been impacted by my steady decline in health. Ben is stress shedding and losing his fur in massive clumps. They do not want to leave my side and follow me everywhere.Each time I have a health crisis they know and comfort me. They are a huge part of how I have made it this far; through all my diagnoses, Covid, everything… I couldn’t do it without my fur babies. Shout out to all the pets out there. 💜🐕🐾

    Furry mood booster

    I was feeling kinda lonely this morning, so I borrowed my grandog to go for a ride with me. All the windows down. Mood elevated! 💯

    Check in with me!!! #imnotok

    I received a call this morning from my sister. She never calls me. She called me to tell me her retired support dog drowned in our parents pool this morning. I immediately burts into tears. And was completely beside myself that I had to leave work. All I can think about right now is Athena and how she suffered such a tragic death and that she didn’t deserve to die that way. My parents 100% blame themselves and we don’t exactly know what happened as to why she fell into the pool and drowned. She was almost about 16 years old and was going blind and developing dementia. Anyways, I’m devastated and having a hard time coping and processing. #imnotok #dogsarefamily
