Poppin' In to Say Hi

Hello friends, it's been a minute. Just wanted to pop in and say hey and catch up. As most y'all know I'm officially an islander now. I just passed the one year mark on island. For the most part, I love it here and it's a good 'fit'. The ONE HUGE downside was that I couldn't bring the DD with me. And with the damn Rona I can't even come home to visit which is breaking my heart.

So here's the updates:

The DD are doing well. They're back in PA with my ex who's taking good care of them, for the most part. He's put too much weight on Kaos which does NOT make me happy BUT Nala is looking so much better since getting on meds for her thyroid. I miss them so much it hurts my heart daily and I can't wait to be able to see them again.

About a month ago now, Kyle made the difficult decision to put Ciara down. I was and am still devastated that I could not be there with her but it was the right decision. We knew about a year ago when I had her in for her last check up before leaving that she likely had some kind of cancer. At her age we didn't even bother with the biopsy as we weren't going to do anything to treat her at 13. We just wanted her to be happy and loved for as long as she had and that she was, until the very last second. But her health was failing and she was just tired. It was a hard call but the right one. For those that have known me since my first days here, you know that Ciara was my best friend ever and that dog got me through a lot. Ciara and the DD kept me going through some very difficult situations. A piece of my heart went with her over the rainbow bridge but I find solace in the fact that she's with Diesel and pain free and happy. Til we meet again my old girl.

Even though I don't get to visit, I do get to video chat and see them regularly. It's not ideal but I have to take what I can get. Nala loves it and constantly tries to lick the phone but it freaks Kaos out. It's kind of funny to watch but I try to keep my video calls short since it stresses them and is really only selfish on my part. Nala loves it but it still stresses her as they both look for me for a while after.

On a more personal note, the government here did a phenomenal job handling the Rona. We are almost entirely back to normal - no masks except at the hospital or elderly facilities, no social distancing, and no cases. We didn't have a single death from the virus and it was contained and eradicated rather quickly. I will admit it's much easier to control on a small island and our borders are still almost completely closed but I have to give it to the government on their handling of the pandemic. I'm very, very fortunate to be here and not there. Since APBT and mixes are prohibited breeds here and I couldn't bring the DD (I really did give it a valiant effort) BUT also couldn't be dogless I rescued a Malinois mix pup named Sasha. She's a good dog - super smart - and about 9 months old now. It's not the same but she's the next best thing. She's very smart and very affectionate but very insecure. She's a bit quirky as she gets extremely stressed if she's separated from me when I'm home but does fine when I'm not. She loves, loves, loves people and other dogs but she can be a bit jumpy still. We're working on it and she only does it when I'm home. If I'm not home and someone is there (I currently have a temporary roommate while she renovates her house) she sticks to herself on the sofa or in her crate. She'll go outside when called but refuses to go to the bathroom and just lays at Amanda's feet until it's time to go in. But if I'm home she's all over everyone she sees and the most social, happy pup ever. Just very insecure despite extraordinary efforts at socialization. She gets super anxious if I'm home and she's not with me but she does fine alone as long as I'm not home so it's not really true separation anxiety.

Whelp that's really the update. Hopefully the US can get this virus under control SOON so I can go home and see my DD and of course make a quick stop in FL to meet the Gaech!

Love to you all!

~Jess

Sincerely good to hear from you Jess and what is even better is that you sound happy. Sorry you had to go through all the obstacles to get there but hopefully it will just keep getting better for you. Also glad to hear that the virus was properly handled there and you can start to put it behind you. Unfortunately, we are in a huge surge of new cases.

Sorry to hear about Ciara, I know that never gets easier. Need to see some pics of Sasha, you know the drill.

You are a strong and determined person, keep on blossoming Jess. Sounds like you're doing great. Big cyber hug.

Awww, she's beautiful Jess. Love those bat ears. Look at her with her front legs crossed in the 4th picture, wait, she's on the furniture! LOL. Next you'll tell me she sleeps in bed with you. ;-)
Good looking girl and some pretty nice digs from what I can see. Proud of you and nice to meet Sasha. Thanks for taking the time to share and don't be a stranger.

That’s her “Draw me like one of your French girls” pose

And thanks friend. It’s been a bit bumpy at times but aside from not having the DD it’s really been a good move.

Can't be Marty. Passed away a few years back. If that is Shon, I know you sent me a PM on PBC but I can't get on that board anymore due to technical issues with the forum so I couldn't respond back. Hit me up on here or at [email protected]
