2014. Wow. Do you all realize I started this blog almost 8 years ago, when I first adopted Mr. Woo? Man, can I prattle on for YEARS!
2013 in review:
Piper broke. But we fixed her.
(Dexter tried to compromise himself to help pay for it, but I didn’t let him)
I brought home dog
… after dog …
… after dog…
… after dog …
A couple even stayed!
Had my heart nearly broken a couple of times
(This is Gemma; I have not told you about her yet. She came in as a stray with her legs MATTED TOGETHER, nails curled around into her paw pads, hair one big bird’s nest, teeth rotting out of her head … she is 5lbs soaking wet. NOW. Now that we have removed the giant cancerous tumour that was growing out of her abdomen, a tumour as big as her head :( Oh Surrey, why don’t you take better care of your dogs?)
Speaking of cancer, Tweed DID NOT HAZ (yay!)
Dexter qualified for Nationals! (even with crazy face)
And Miss Springaling got herself on the podium at her first Regional event. *proud*
(And they both got their ADC titles. More miracles!)
We tried out some new hobbies
Like Lure Coursing
and Barn Hunt
Said “farewell” to some good friends
And sadly said good bye for real to some others.
(and Teddy, and Zena – beloved all, missed by many)
And then, because I like to end my year with a bang, my truck engine seized and the whole thing went kaput. Boo.
So today I bought a new (to me) one.
It’s easy to think of all the things you’ve lost in a year, or the things you don’t have. This year, I resolve to focus on all the things I DO have and don’t ever want to lose.
Happy New Year, to all our friends. Let’s make 2014 an awesome one.
(also, I shall try to blog more. Honest)
