Freyja was a gift to me from a local breeder. He found out that my service dog, Starr, had passed away at the age of only 3 years as a result of acute pancreatitis. I was devastated and could barely function for weeks after she passed away but one day I got a call from Steve. He told me that he thought he had a pup that would suit my needs. She was terribly sound and unruffled under most circumstances. Just what I needed for therapy work and for my home needs. I went to look at the little lady and it was one of those times when you knew if you didn't take that baby home you'd regret it forever and now that I've had these years to live with this remarkable dog, I know I would have lost out on so much without her in my home. Freyja may not be a rescue in the true sense of the word, but she rescued me when I needed it most and continues to hold me up with her tender l♥ve.
Over time you will get to know these precious members of my family. You'll also meet their four kitty siblings and will hear stories about the furry friends my family has waiting for us at the Bridge. I've always said that a thousand years is not enough time to spend with someone you l♥ve and it is so, so true. I have never been ready to face the day and time when I must say good-bye to someone I l♥ve with all my heart and soul but I do it because I cannot be so selfish as to keep them here with me when they need to transition into their next life experience.
Why did I name this blog Loving for a Living? Because that best describes what these two friends of mine do best, love me completely, unconditionally and without question. That is their job, the way they make their living and I am more than happy to keep them employed!
So, if you've found my blog, please come back often. You will meet some remarkable animals that have blessed me with their presence in my life making it more tolerable to live in this cold and sometimes cruel planet we call home.
