Happy Halloween πŸŽƒ πŸŽƒπŸ’€πŸ‘»πŸπŸ‚πŸŒ•πŸŽ‘β™‘ (warning: cuteness overload!)

Look at my adorable babies lookin’ all festive & proud in their little seasonal scarves! Princess Dalia on your left & Mr. Trigo bear on your right! I take care of these lil ones part of the day, five days a week while their mommy & daddy are working! Walking them & playing with them. β™‘ I love my job! These are two of the most loving, calm, gentle dogs you can ever meet! Ever! They are BIG! Sweet teddy bears! And the boy never ever barks! The girl rarely does. They are rescue doggies, rescued by a golden organization where their mommy & daddy adopted them. They are very close & love each other and copy what each other does. They are so funny! They are very happy & very loved! β™‘ I have been taking care of them for almost a year & couldn’t love them more! Dalia loves pumpkins! She’s fascinated while out & about and sees them. πŸŽƒ

β™‘ This is an Instagram pic I posted on my work account. We all post pics on there everyday of our sweet babies. β™‘ I hope they brighten your day! (Whether or not you celebrate Halloween!)

Happy Halloween!! I LOVE all the decorations all around! It probably shouldn’t but this one makes me laugh. It’s so strange how we have a holiday (in US at least) where we celebrate dark stuff for fun! (N teach kids to take candy off of strangers?!)

Happy 13th!!β™‘πŸŽƒ

 ” …if you see him comin’

Get away if you can

Just keep on runnin’

Run as fast as you can

He’s a dangerous, dangerous man

And he’s out tonight

And he’s watchin’ you

And he knows you house

No, don’t turn out the lights

Oh, but he’s back

He’s the man behind the mask” β™‘ πŸŽƒ πŸŽƒπŸ’€πŸ‘»πŸπŸ‚πŸŒ•πŸŽ‘β™‘

Just a little Friday the 13th celebration! I love Friday the 13th in October!! β™‘

It’s a cool night here on Philadelphia! β™‘ I hope you are having a beautiful day or night wherever in the world you are! πŸ˜€

Light of the love that I found…β™‘

“It could be someone walking down the street
A stranger on a bus
A little kid on his way to school or any one of us
We all got a little superman ready to take flight
And save a life ohh save a life
Take a look around and you’ll see ordinary angels”

 Much of my job takes place outside, in all kinds of weather, without exception. Today is a very rainy kind of day! β™‘ 

I can’t believe how many people, both men & women, stop to offer me their umbrellas on days like today. They choose to be soaked and uncomfortable so I won’t have to be. I love to see people living up to our motto, City of brotherly love. That’s why I’m sharing this post, to promote & share acts of kindness. We all have the capacity to love and there are an infinite number of chances each day, to express love to others, friends, family, strangers, animals, insects….all sentient beings. β™‘ Let’s take a chance at least once today, to reach out and love someone! 

“The world can make you feel so small
Steal your dreams and make you crawl
And break you till you got you got nothing at all
When you’re in that dark place and you need that embrace
You know love is never too far away”

New furbabyβ™‘

Omg!! Can you handle the cuteness?! My heart melts! β™‘ This is baby Ellie. She’s a baby I took care of today while her family was out for a few hours. She has puppy breath!! I love that scent! And she doesn’t know how to go up & down steps yet! I had to carry her! 

She was giving me a bunch of kisses the second she met me and was jumping all over me playing and took my shoe, which is just about bigger than she is, and was running through the house with it! 

It’s so adorable how just a couple months ago this little life wasn’t even thought of, now all of a sudden, here she is, in the world, giving endless kisses and so much love! β™‘ I’m totally in love! How adorable! She’s a pitbull/chocolate lab mix.

So I’m just sharing her hoping she brightens your day or night like she brightened mine! β™‘β™‘β™‘ πŸ˜€

Can anyone look at this little girl and not smile?! 

 Much love & light to you & I hope you are having a beautiful day or night wherever in the world you are! β™‘

Reminderβ™‘

Recently, one of my furbabies died. Not one of mine who I live with but one who I took care of while her furmama goes away on business trips. Her name is Pinky & she was a little Boston terrier mix and so adorable. Just like my baby, Boobie, Pinky is a mama of twins. She has twin boys and my sweet girl has boy/girl twins! β™‘ Also, Pinky was thirteen years old when she died just like Boobie. I find this loss shattering just like when my own die. It’s one of the downfalls of having a job working with many animals. The more we come to know and love deeply, the more we lose. The one thing that brings me a great sense of consolation after this terrible loss is, I loved Pinky fully while she was alive. I still love her now but now it’s just a feeling in my mind as there’s nothing I can do for her. When she was alive, I acted on my feeling of love for her, spoiling her and doing as much as I could. To know this and remember it is a great source of comfort, helping to heal my grief. 

I always loved taking care of Pinky and her baby boys. The one dog doesn’t like to stay out long for walks so I take him out to go potty then bring him back and Pinky never wanted to come home! She always wanted to stay out and would run back to the door for a second, longer walk after bringing the little boy back. So I would almost always take her & the other little boy back for a longer walk even when it was late and I was ready to call it a day. 

I prefer when my workday ends earlier than late. It’s not that I prefer less work, I just like when it ends before it gets late. I don’t mind working into the night. It’s just my preference though to have my workday end earlier. But when the babies want me to stay, I stay, even when my work is done. So I would stay and take Pinky for her second, longer walk whenever I could.  Sometimes, I would even be thinking consciously, they aren’t going to live forever, we aren’t going to live forever. I want to make them as happy as I can while I can. 

And after each visit, I always would kiss them goodbye, sometimes more than once. I would sit on the sofa for extra cuddles with them no matter how late it got. 

The reason I share this isn’t to brag about how much good I did. It’s to share my own example of how loving more makes it so much easier to cope with a devastating loss. All I have is my grief and painful sense of loss, which is just a usual reaction to losing someone or something we love. I have no guilt or regrets surrounding it, no “if only’s…”. I share this hoping others will be reminded to cherish everything present right now. Go the distance to help others even if it puts us out a little bit, even if we’re ready to go home and sleep or rest, savor every moment we have with our pets, family, friends, and remember to stop and appreciate our job, house, stage of life we are currently in, even inanimate objects that may seem trivial. When we appreciate & love fully & give thanks right now, it’s easier when we have to say goodbye. It may not lessen our sense of grief or loss but will help so we don’t have an additional struggle of regretting and feeling as if we missed out or could have done better. The main reason I want to love more always, isn’t for me, so I don’t struggle with regret or guilt, but for them, for everyone else, to make the world a better place wherever I can. But it’s also good to not have to be sorry we did not love more. And that’s the aspect I’m focusing on in this post. 

The loss of Pinky is so, so incredibly heartbreaking to me just like when my own furbabies get old and die. It feels like something in my chest being ripped out, physically. Especially when I think about her harness. She would lift her little legs to get them in it when I would go over to her with it. It knocked the wind out of me when my boss told me. But it’s really her sweet mama’s loss(and her twin pups). My heart goes out to her furmama who loves and takes great care of them. And to her puppies who lost their furry mama. All three dogs were always very close. β™‘ Pinky had a beautiful, happy life with her loving family. In every experience, I find life lessons to be learned and reminded of. No matter how painful an experience is, there is something we can find in it and use to bring a little bit more beauty to the world. 

So this is a reminder to us all to love more. β™‘β™‘β™‘ Love as much as possible. 

I hope you are having a beautiful day or night wherever in the world you are. Much love & light to you. ~Hugs~ β™‘β™‘β™‘
