Shimi is coming along. She is 5 months old now and is it halfway through puppy class and is also going to Nanaimo Pet Services daycare. She has her interview with Dog & Suds later this week.
Living with a puppy is something I haven’t had to do for 10 years so it’s been a bit of a curve but she is starting to sleep through the night and I am starting to get used to walking more. I am logging 10,000 steps on my Fitbit everyday more often than not. I have lost 10 pounds. Sometimes I think I’ve lost my mind but this was probably done prior to Shimi.
It’s funny how things come full circle. Shassi came into my life almost 24 years ago, in 1993. Susan, the same breeder who bred Shassi, bred Shimi – Shassi’s great-great-ad-nauseum-great niece.
I’m going to show her and, if things go well and she passes all the health tests, we might breed her but that’s in the future. Possible future.
After all the hell of last year, it’s nice to have something to look forward to. It’s been easier to use Facebook because it was such a micro-blogging format and I just didn’t he the but I also wanted to develop this blog but I just didn’t have the energy. And I realize that all the energy that I was putting into Mischa and the problems that we were having the health issues and like money stuff and everything that it was taking away from that and I’m just now getting it back.
So, here’s the first post in a long while and we’ll see where this goes.
