Dog Mom- Arya Update


I’m really just using this as an excuse to post pictures of my lovey!

Dog Mom Update:

Arya has been living under my roof now for 3 whole months! She definitely is quite the little terriest and has truly grown into her name sake Arya Stark (she’s tiny but fierce). If you are a GOT fan, I think you’d really appreciate her name even more knowing this little fact; she was born in Northern Washington in the middle of winter. – Okay geek moment over!

She has also become quite the little city pup; riding the bus, attending protests, and chilling at our local brewery.

While she does have quite a feisty disposition, she’s also a little sweetie. Everyone night she ‘little spoons’ me with her body under the covers and head on the pillow.

All in all we are still doing great and we’re excited for a summer of hiking!

Would love to see pics of your fur babies or any pup advice you may have below.

Late Night Thoughts – Dog Mom

Well I’ve checked off another bucket list to do. 2018 is the year I will be entering motherhood (well dog mom hood.) This is something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile. My mom and I adopted an 8 month old Chihuahua (below photos) when I was in high school. Of course since I was 16 and all over the place, Teddy bonded with my mom and is now my mom’s dog. As I’ve been growing up, I’ve been missing having a dog around as my side kick. For the last year and a half I have been researching breeds that would fit in with my lifestyle (plus techniques for working dog moms and training schedules.)  Well over the weekend my friend told me she has free jack russell terrier mix pups and I decided it was time to pull the trigger.  On January 14th I brought home the little babes (top photo.) It’s insane how much I already love her, and the responsibility of raising her.

A lot of my friends are getting married, having babies, buying homes, and I’m just over here getting my first solo puppy! It’s a crazy step into adulthood for me. I just finished traveling the world and now I’m signing up for a 15 year commitment. This little pup will probably first hand witness me achieve those milestones too. I promise to keep you guys updated on Arya. In the meantime, comment your puppy advice below!
