Back in Time 2018

Well, 2018 was a bit of a rough year. A year of loved ones lost, both two-legged and four-legged. But also a year of new adventures and new experiences. I didn’t keep up with documenting these adventures so I’ll be stepping back in time, via this blog, to recap the excitement (and the pain) of this past year.

Looking down to see Andrew’s new little GSP puppy, Morgan, and my not-so-little Aussie puppy, Mesa, laying next to me like this last night brought up a huge upwelling of emotions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The GSP/Aussie duo of Cache and Elle that we just lost were similar in age difference and were best buddies from the second they met. They often cuddled on the couch together next to me, just like these new pups do. I have a feeling they’ll be just as inseparable as their predecessors were. . . #aussielovers #aussiepuppy #aussie #dogs #dogstagram #australianshepherdworld #australianshepherdsofinstagram #dogsofinsta #instadog #dog #aussies #puppylove #australianshepherd #puppy #puppiesofinstagram #dogsofinstagram #aussiesofinstagram #aussielove #cute #doglover #reddog #redmerle #redmerleaussie #adventuredog #adventurepuppy
Slo-mo humming bird moth (likely a white-lined sphinx), they were everywhere at dusk last night. Seriously cool creatures! . . . . . #insects #moth #nature #insect #entomology #hummingbirdmoth #whitelinedsphinxmoth #michigan #garden #slomo #iphonex
It’s a bit hard to admit, but while I instantly knew when I met Mesa that he was coming home with me, for about the first week I second guessed whether doing so was the right thing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cache had died only a couple of weeks before and while ludicrous, I felt like I was betraying him. I still cry most days about that little black dog, he was a gem (but aren’t they all). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As the days and weeks have passed, I’ve seen him grow and learn and I have zero doubt that he was meant to be in my life. He seems to sense the somber vibe on the farm after all of the loss and provides love and humor whenever either Andrew or I need it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ No dog replaces a previous dog, they just help to plug the ragged hole left in our hearts. I can’t wait to see this little moose continue to grow into an amazing adventure dog. . . #aussielovers #aussiepuppy #aussie #dogs #dogstagram #australianshepherdworld #australianshepherdsofinstagram #dogsofinsta #instadog #dog #aussies #puppylove #australianshepherd #puppy #puppiesofinstagram #dogsofinstagram #aussiesofinstagram #aussielove #cute #doglover #reddog #redmerle #redmerleaussie #adventuredog #adventurepuppy
