I've been away for a while

Recommended Posts

Hi all, not sure if you will remember me, as it has been a while since I have been on here.  Both of my girls (Luna and Nova) passed away in 2020, and it took me some time to process that loss and heal.  I've peeked in on here every now and again and enjoyed your updates and shared in your losses.

After my girls passed, life changed substantially, and not only just from having a dogless house.  I relocated to Nashville, where my BF and I purchased a home with a gigantic fenced yard.  I know my girls would've loved it here.  I am finally back at work, teaching my university students in person for the first time since March 2020.  It's great to be back!

Although my BF also came with the most gorgeous and gentle 75 lb mutt called Leeroy, I knew I needed another pup of my own.  I wasn't ready for another greyhound just yet, so in a stroke of complete insanity, we adopted an 8 week old mystery mutt from an Alabama shelter in early May.  Her name is Daphne, and she's now 6 months old, weighs in a a whopping 15 pounds, and completely rules our household.  She's the embodiment of joy, and has done wonders to heal my heart.

Can't see the pics, but Leeroy's and Daphne's descriptions sound wonderful!  Luna and Nova would be so happy for you.
