Some months, we take a step back and reflect on all the activities of the past month. A great way to keep up with Yuna and my learnings of a first time dog owner.
Yuna is now a mast cell cancer survivor. This is the story of how we discovered Yuna’s mast cell tumor and how we got through everything.
One year ago, I was looking to adopt a dog. The rest is history. Here’s a video highlighting our year.
At every turn of the month, I’ve gotten used to sitting down and cranking out this reflective monthly update. However, I have to say, this time around, I’m drawing a pretty big blank. It’s not that the past month was uneventful. Really, it was anything but.
Sometimes other aspects of life just get in the way, and that was the case for us this May. However, we’re really looking to get back to our previous levels of production on the blog, and improving the user experience for all our visitors. Here’s a bit of what we were up to this May!
During her evaluation at a local boarding facility, Yuna received a report card for her behavior. Let’s look at it together! This update will be devoted to dissecting this report card to see how we can improve Yuna’s behavior going forward.
The snowy hikes, ski trips, road trips, city exploring, and even the snowstorm that rendered Seattle useless… all these were highlights of my first winter here. Before we bid goodbye to winter for good, here’s one last post summarizing all our winter PNW adventures!
Do not be sad if I am afraid of your loving hand.
Yesterday, I did not have one.
Please never forget, I was a proud dog.
All I need, is a bit of time to adjust.
Yuna got to experience snow for the first time in January 2019! This month I also took Yuna on her first ever road trip! Relive these highlights in this monthly update.
Early on in December, I wondered whether or not I may have “broken” Yuna a little. I may have employed too much negative reinforcement…and I want to change that going into 2019.
It was like a rollercoaster ride, and the great thing about writing an update like this is that I get some time to digest and reflect on all the happenings of the past month. Perhaps fellow dog owners can resonate with some of the points in the post ahead!
Two months have gone by now, and I think it’s safe to say that the second month was a lot more stress-free than the first. I think Yuna has settled into the groove of things. She’s gotten used to going to work. She gets hungry when she’s supposed to. She gets tired at night when it’s time to sleep.
