A Few Reasons Why A Puppy Makes Your Life More Awesome


I’ve been a puppy loving human  ever since I can remember. In fact, I don’t ever remember not having a dog!

Last year we said goodbye to my beloved Tony Vienna, after 16 amazing years. He was like my and Kurt’s first child. We were completely heartbroken when he passed away. Our other dog Trevor was also so sad and lonely and still misses Tony so much.

At first, I was hesitant to get another pup as it was just so hard saying goodbye to Tony but after the kids were basically begging us for another dog, we couldn’t resist. Enter Cody!

We have Cody for 6 weeks now and he has brought so much Joy into our home!

Working from home with the kids has been an experience. Alyssa is officially in week 8 of term 2 and she is still on track with the curriculum thanks to her schools support. Aidan has daily classes with his teachers too which I’m really grateful for.

Kurt and I are both working from home and has been interesting juggling it all.

Some days are complete chaos, but for the most part we are doing it! I keep reminding myself that this is not “normal” and of course things will not be easy. We are in crisis mode, so we just have to do what we can do to the best of our abilities – and that applies to the kids too.
