When we first brought Ein home, Hans was definitely not feeling it. He was anxious and aloof - completely uncertain what this mini loaf is doing here and why the mini loaf didn't go home that night. It took a little bit for him to warm up and be comfortable. I think he was also a little bit afraid to hurt the little snapaggating thing that bravely tries to herd him.
Hans is a very good big brother and he's been very considerate of Ein's challenging ball of energy. I'm really happy how much they love each other and Ein definitely loves his big brother very much.
Happy Sunday everyone!
And Happy Father's day to all the deserving hooman and paw-dads out there!
The weather's been quite good this week. It was really hot the days prior but this week it was less scorching than usual. It's still quite hot, planting herbs on my veggie garden facing the sun most definitely killed them. There goes additional casualties. Overall tho, it's been better. Reasons to get a mini greenhouse.
I have to admit, our garden is my pride and joy. I mean, on top of a lot of other things that I take pride of. Let me rephrase that, it's my life's spring & summer pride and joy. That being said, I put a lot of work in it over the past few years. Living in a home we didn't own yet then, I really didn't make that much modifications - just planted a few perennials and mostly annuals. This time, we're able to do more to it and I'm excited on what other changes the future will bring. In the meantime, let's focus on NOW!
Ein, our dear Snappagator, is growing up so fast! I honestly don't know how many times I'm going to say that throughout the course of his life but probably until he's three or four, or until the next puppy. Hans is a big pup so while he'll always be my puppy, it does feel like he's grown up already.
Ein, on the other hand, is smol and is expected to remain smol. But what does his small paws love? Just like big brother Hans, he also loves the snow!
Our boys are definitely loving it! Hans loves to play in snow but he gets enough of it after a few minutes. Granted his fur isn't that thick (and he's so big it's hard to find a good coat), Ein is fluffy and welp, looks like he's a snow dog at heart.
It's a beautiful, freezing Saturday morning and I had to go pick up Mocha from Barkshire Pet Care Services in Neenah, WI. Bear was also not with me today, so it's things I had to face alone - such as driving through County Road A through pure ice. I've never done that, but here I am in one piece!
Finally, I laid my sweet prince Mocha to rest and he will stay with us forever.
Today, I also had to go back to the Oshkosh Humane Society to pickup a new special piig - Biscuit Piig. It's a bit bittersweet, having to bid farewell to Mocha and welcoming a new family member.
I am posting this with a very heart. I rarely post about sad things but it is part of life so it's quite inevitable at some point.
My Rainbow Mocha
Everything was all good, everything was just fine until I went up Saturday night to find an unresponsive and cold Mocha Piig. I was alone at home, with a little puppy who needed so much care - I felt so helpless. There was nothing I can do anymore for Mocha. There was nothing I can do for myself but cry there and break down.
Hey, it's me!
I've always loved to write. Not saying I'm good at it, but hey this is the story of my life!
