    Hey everyone.
    It's been a while since I've been active, sorry about that! A lot has happened in the last year.
    I can't remember where I really left off, but for those who didn't know, I moved back to the city (from the small town I'd been in for 4 years) in September of 2016. My partner and I ended up splitting up shortly after so life became pretty crazy between working full time and taking care of the pups on my own. It was a big adjustment.

    I met a pretty amazing guy though and long story short, we've moved back to the country to a small town in the Kootenays, BC. I'm SO happy. We're currently renting a place on 10 acres up in the mountains and it's absolutely amazing. The dogs are in heaven with a huge yard and the peace and quiet. Between my boyfriend and I, we currently have 5 horses, 4 chickens, 4 Muscovy ducks, and the 2 dogs. I guess we're kinda starting our own little hobby farm, lol. I saved a lot of money before the move so right now I'm taking a few weeks to settle in and get to know the area, it's been pretty amazing getting to take this little vacation in the country. Real life will inevitably start soon so I'm enjoying it while I can.

    Here are a bunch of photos, sorry if I shared any previously, I can't remember what I've posted here or just on Facebook lol.

    Shots of the dogs last winter:

    Squirt wants our birds sooooo bad. Our white duck actually escaped once and Squirt was on her in a second. Luckily we were right there to, uh, remove the duck from his grasp. We found the little hole in the fence she wiggled out of and all has been well since. The dogs are much less reactive now but still love to hang out by the fence and wait for a bird to make a great escape... lol.

    One of the horses, Sunny. He's my favourite and I've been riding him. He's my boyfriend's retired roping horse and I'll be learning to rope and probably barrel race on him. I grew up riding English style so the whole rodeo/western thing is new to me but has been super fun.

    My boyfriend on his current roping horse, Gizmo. He's a huge ham and loves to cuddle.

    Probably enough photos for now, lol. So how's everyone doing? I feel so out of the loop! Looks like there are a lot of new members here so that's good. :)

    Another life update:

    I’ve started working at a boarding kennel for dogs and cats. It’s nice to get to work on my own and spend time with animals, but I have some fundamental differing of opinions with the owners (which I’ve kept to myself), so I’m still looking for other work and hoping the vet clinic will have an opening eventually.

    My best friend has decided to move here from our hometown so I’m super excited about that. She’ll be renting one of our spare rooms so that will help us save more money and I’ll have a familiar face around town. The only thing that makes it a little complicated is that she has a little SBT bitch that can be dog aggressive, and as most people know, Squirt can also be very dog aggressive.

    Luckily the way the house and yard is set up, it should be pretty easy to crate and rotate them. I’m going to split our yard in half so they each have their own outdoor space. Our yard is huge so that will be fine. I’ll let everyone know how it goes as we start the C/R lifestyle!

    Positive thinking prevails, I have an interview at the local vet clinic on Wednesday. Wish me luck!
