My neighbor asked me to adopt these puppies

So my neighbor just came over with this beautiful black lab mother and her puppies and asked if I wanted to take them. As much as I would love to take these little angels, I already have quite a few of them living with me. I literally want to take them.. I have a beautiful and big backyard so I have space for them; however, I have to think of my other dogs and how they would react to new a puppy, let alone puppies. 

Sometimes these small decisions are literally harder than rocket science considering it is relatively moot based on a "should I?" or "shouldn't I?" basis. I feel like I have to look at all scenarios including hypothetical scenarios. "What if I travel out of state?" or "What if I travel out of the country?" Plus, in addition to this, I work 9 am until 5 pm everyday. And although I have weekends completely off, I do work on weekends lately. 


I live alone so I don't know if I can handle these pretty little puppies right now. As much as I want to take all of them into my home, I don't think I would be able to do so because I work so much. I have raised plenty of puppies in my life and one puppy is work. To take on 6 little puppies plus their amazing mother, making it 7 would be lot of work and time, which unfortunately I do not have at the present. 

One thing that I was kind of concerned about was the mother, as I can see her ribs. My neighbor voluntarily showed me the food she eats. As my dogs are spoiled and get homemade dog food, these dogs eat the usual dry food with the occasional soft food in the can. I honestly don't know what to say. 

Anyways, I just let my neighbor know that I cannot not take them; however, if he cannot find homes for them they are welcome to stay with me, which I have no issue with. I love animals and would never want them to be homeless or hungry.

RIP Murphy

I am so heartbroken. There are no words to describe how I am feeling. My dear cat Murphy has died. She was sick for quite a while; however, the way she passed away has left me shattered, distraught and devastated. She was walking out to the dining room and collapsed. I am not sure if she was having a heart attack or a stroke.

As I tried to revive her, she crawled to me, struggling to meow and breath. I looked at her and told her it was "ok" to go and I would see her in the next life.

She died immediately after.

As I struggle to wipe away the tears, my heart is heavier than ever. I remember my life with this precious, sentient being and can only question why good things don't last forever. Why her? And I have to admit, I feel as if I lost a family member.

With that said, they say it takes a moment to meet someone, a day to appreciate them, a week to like them, a month (or more?) to love them, but it takes an entire lifetime to forget them. Rest in Peace Murphy. I will never forget the amazing cat that you were in this lifetime and the impact you made in my life. You will be forever missed. Laid to rest: 2003-2017

Happy 11th Birthday Murphy

Today is my amazing cat's 11th birthday. I remember when I first got her 11 years ago. She was about a month old. She was already meowing the moment she walked through the front door, unleashed and ready to take over. My dogs wouldn't allow anyone near her, due to their protective yet maternal instincts. It was the cutest thing.

It's hard to believe she is 11 years old. Where has time gone? I hope she lives until I have my first child. One thing is certain, I am honored and blessed to have a wonderful cat like her. She was amazing then and she's amazing now.
