Tonight, I’d like to go back to when most of the chaos started; I had finally sold my home.
I had to quickly load all of my animals and move them to a temporary location before we closed on the sale. I have the most wonderful family as they opened up their home and farm to me and my critters. The only downside was a lack of any internet or phone access during the several months I stayed there. The only access to the outside world was when I was at work or working on my own farm and unfortunately, those were inherently busy times. I spent most of them catching up with friends and paying bills online.
During this period, my family experienced several losses. I will not go into too much detail but several family members were lost, one after another. I am still struggling to process even one of those losses, but life is funny and sure knows how to throw you a curve ball. My Australian Shepherd Raven surprised me with 7 gorgeous puppies; 2 merle girls, 3 merle boys, 1 black bi boy, and 1 black tri boy. Remember that amazing family? They all pitched in with puppy chores and socialization. I don’t think I could have ever done it without them with everything that was going on.
Then it was time to move everyone again, plus the new additions….
