Why I care so much about my dog

I used to be "one of those people" that didn't understand how someone could be so obsessed over an animal. Don't get me wrong, I've loved dogs/cats/rabbits growning up, but it wasn't until Emmi that I really understood.

Why I care so much about my dog

2018 has been a heck of a year. With medical emergencies, new home, ect.

Once things settled down in our new home, I started having the famous "Puppy Fever." I'd see cute dogs everywhere, young and old... big and small. I decided to try and start asking Tyler if he would want one. After doing research on what breed, size and where to get one, we found one cute little "last of the litter" post and knew she was the one. This was a tough two months waiting, receiving pictures/videos from the breeder and impatiently buying everything at the pet stores. Lol

Little did I know, the last pick of the litter would change our lives.

In one of the most challenging times, we received one of the most amazing gifts.

Since the day we got her, she has never failed to amaze us. She is always learning new things and always down to cuddle. She's been a huge uplift to our lives when times were tough. On days that Tyler doesn't feel his best, I swear she knows. She will curl on him and won't get up. She enjoys laying on the floor but will keep either her head or paw on our foot, just incase we get up. My personal favorite is at 9 pm when she's passed out laying on my chest, such a relaxing feeling. She also learned the sound to our home lock and the second it dings (unlocks) she prepares herself to welcome us, with the cutest look in the world. (Lets be honest, it's probably "Just get me out of this cage, I want to play" but I'll think of it as she is just really excited to see us haha).

But most importantly, I'm so happy to be her pawrent. I do consider her my child, for many reasons. We train her, feed her, potty train her, give her all of our love and much much more. I look forward to telling her about my day and seeing her get all excited to see "daddy" drive up. I get so much joy seeing Tyler walk into our home saying, "Hey my girls" and Emmi making so much noise with her tail beating both of us up with excitement. I love her ride alongs to pet stores and getting her whatever she wants, because she deserves it.

I hope one day she fully understands how much of an impact she has made on us. She may have been the "runt" or "last pick of the litter" but she is nothing short of amazing.

We love you so much, Emmi girl.

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
