Our Puppy Bashy

We have a black lab/ pitbull mixed puppy named Sebastian. He will be eight years old this year. He is my daughter’s Emotional Support Animal. I couldn’t imagine our lives without him.

When we rescued Bashy, he was only about five weeks old, and already had maybe three or four homes. I’m pretty sure he was on Craigslist at some point too. When I met with the last owner, they just gave him up like it was no big deal. I felt horrible for him. He was really tiny, full of worms and fleas. We got him to the vet and he was better in no time.

Bastian was originally supposed to be my puppy. My youngest daughter Scarlet really connected with him. She would carry him around and tell him what to do. He followed her everywhere and let her lay on him as he got bigger. While he is the most gentle, loving dog, he’s very protective of us both. Even when Scarlet and I are goofing around, he is on guard to make sure we don’t hurt each other. He gets so worked up that he dumps out his bin of toys and starts to rip them around.

Here’s just a few of my favorite pics of our Bashy.

051014 some updates…

Hello sunshines!  It’s been a while.

Just when I was starting to really get involved in things again, everything went crazy busy with life, family, work, etc.  Plus my laptop died as well.  I’m just now attempting to work through a few more things, but plan to get somewhat back on track very soon.

There will be a few changes.  I’m not able to do quite as much as I used to.  I have a habit of wanting to help everyone & getting deeply involved in multiple projects, getting behind, losing money, neglecting family & the list goes on.  What I am able to do, I will spend more quality time on.  I complain all the time about never having enough time to do anything.  I also would like to do more of what I’m interested in.  I sometimes agree to help out but really don’t have much of an interest.  No offense to anyone, but I just need to learn how to say no, practice better time management & focus on my priorities. Not to mention, I have a wedding to plan for in the near future.  I hope I continue to have my awesome fans during this transitional time.

Thanks so much 🙂
