Oh what a night!

Not sure what pup got into if anything. Sometimes she just has tummy troubles. As most Yorkies do.. She’s a yorkiepoo half yorkie half poodle. And my guess tummy is ALL yorkie with all the troubles she has with it.

Anyways tonight she was playing and squeaking her toy and having a blast. Then all went quiet. I went to investigate and found her staring at her favorite toy covered in barf. She looked up at me all sad.

She hates getting sick, she shivers and shakes afterwards for a while. So my son picked her up to love on her while I took beloved toy and tried to figure out how to clean yet not ruin toy.

She’s happy and toy still squeakes even though I put it in dryer to hurry process. Its her favorite toy. 🙂

Here it is all nice and clean and cozied up with her. Waffles is happy as can be now.

A few scary moments

We’ve had a few scary moments with WafflesTheWonderDog since she adopted us from the pound at 12 weeks old.

When she was a baby she’d eat to fast or drink to fast and choke. It used to startle us and scare her into shivers. There have also been many a time in the middle of the night in her crate which is in my room we’d hear her choking. We jump up and get her out and rub her back and tell her its ok. All the while she is shivering in fear looking up at us with more love in her eyes than we ever deserve.

People say they “rescued” their dog from the pound. Well I feel she rescued us. She has brought so much to my family and to our friends. So much enjoyment and love. I can never repay her. We are so lucky she found us and chose us as her family.

We went and saw her one day at the pound. Another lady was interested in her. She spent 2 hours with her. And then I guess she left. We returned to the pound when it opened the next day knowing the puppy maybe gone. I told the children if she’s meant to be with us. She will be there. And there she was! Thank God.

She came out of her cold concrete cage that had been her home since she was 8 weeks old at the shelter and right into our arms full of love and trust like we had always had her. She fit in the palm of one hand. She was 3.5 pounds.

We took her from there to our vet and got a healthy check up. Then went to buy her food, toys, a harness and leash.

Within the first couple weeks we learned she has food allergies. And they are very similar to my aspie sons allergies. She’s allergic to soy, corn, peanut, and tap water.

Well that delighted my aspie. Made her an even better friend to him. Waffles also does this reverse sneeze thing that kind of mimics what my son does. And she loves to be carried and cuddled.
image

She’s really a great companion and has helped my kids a lot. They now have something they like to care for. They like to teach her tricks. Take her for walks. And watch her kiss our 21 year old Persian cat.

What must you have to relocate

FAITH! For without it you will fail.
image

The NIV Bible, Hebrews 11:1 Says “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”

Romans 10:10 says ” For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved”.

The dictionary says faith is a observance of obligation, a belief in something, a confidence in a thing or person.

The thesaurus says Faith is trust in something. A belief in a higher being.
image

I have faith that if we are meant to relocate it will happen. Things will come together. God will provide the path to wherever we belong. That’s what faith means to me.

We’ve gotten very clear signs we do not belong here. This isn’t where we want to be, not where we want to raise our kids.

Prices are very high in southern California especially at the coast. If we stay here we will never own our own home.

People here are always in a rush. They honk a split second after the light changes green and you don’t move. Then they veer around you and yell at you or flip you off. My children have seen things here I didn’t see at their age.

Of course I wasn’t raised here either. I was raised in the mid west. Where people are warm and calm. Not cold and rushed. Where people stop and enjoy the seasons not bitch because its foggy, or windy, or raining. Where people help their friends, their neighbors, their community. Not obstruct their view of reality by being materialistic and turning their head to avoid seeing what’s going on in their world.

I long for a place to call my HOME, a place to raise my kids. A calm place.  A better life for the kids. A better life for their children, when they get married. A better life for my husband and I. Less hostility, less rushed. Smaller class sizes than 41-45 students.
A place that is accepting of kids with special needs. A place where everyone is viewed as a worthy life.

A place that the air isn’t brown everyday with smog, a place with views of things other than my blockwall or my neighbors house, a place where I will hear sounds other than my neighbors dogs, drums or ambulances going to help people that have crashed their cars, a place where my kids might have a Caucasian friend, a place where kids on the way to school don’t have to be paralyzed in fear wondering if today is the day they will get hit by a parent in a rush to get to Los Angeles for work.

A calming, beautiful place with genuine people. Not the fake Californians I live with now. I know very few people without cosmetic improvements. I’m all natural! The way God made me!

I have faith that it will work out. I can feel it. I just need to stay on track and be patient.

Montana, Saturdays adventure

Today my hubby is off in Bozeman looking at places to work, live, shop, schools ect

He found out Costco has self check isles there. Evidently they trust their residents, unlike California where the damn near frisk you when you leave the store.

He and his brother saw the home depot in Bozeman.

Look at the view from home depot

They ate lunch at Bobs Burgers my hubbys lunch looks yummy.

The kids and I decided since we were left at home we’d get chocolate shakes and pretend we were in the snow.

The pup was pretending she was cold too.
