It's been 2 weeks. I hated Mondays and I hate them a little more because it was the day I lost you. But it was also the day I got to spend the best day ever with you. Missing you Pancakes. But I'm glad I have you in my memories 💕🥞

Can't wait to see these two cuddlebugs. 💕
.
We are done with our vacation to California! I brought my camera but decided that I needed a good break from taking photos and I'm glad I did because it was so liberating to just enjoy my vacation without worrying about "the perfect shot". Granted I still took a million and one photos on my iPhone. We are going to pick up Harriet after our flight and then we get the boys back too. I'm not looking forward to the post vacation blues especially because now I have to start work and school. On top of that it hasn't 100% hit me yet that Pancakes is actually gone.... Miss that nugget more than anything but I think this first week of the "real world" is going to be hard without her 💔

When did she get so big 😭
Harriet is now 3.5 months old. She's a smart feisty puppy but definitely a handful at time.

Someone is excited to go to his grandparents house for the week! Aslan and Gumbo get to go hang out in eastern Oregon and Harriet is off with a puppy sitter. It's always hard to leave the dogs on vacation but I'm ready for a good fun week especially after last weekend 😞
.
On the bright side. Three days at Disney, one day at universal studios and two days watching @thesupercollies on @agt ! Make sure you vote for them on Tuesday 😊 we are going to harass you about it!

You mean to tell me THIS is where all my hair has been going?!
.
Meet the human's new best friend, the @bobsweep. This is the bObsweep pet hair plus and my oh my has it made my life SOO much easier. Making multiple dogs who all shed means that I have to vacuum almost every other day to keep up with all the hair. We live in an apartment so the hair just accumulates. Gumbo sheds fluff balls everywhere while Aslan just sheds hair as he sleeps! I suffer from horrible allergies so I need to make sure the house is free of hair or I start to sneeze constantly. This little vacuum that we call bObiO runs on a quick clean everyday by itself! You set a timer on your own with the remote and he will do his thing. He finds his way back to his charger when he is done or out of battery. Because of all the dog hair, I usually have to empty out the bustbin twice for our small apartment since he cleans once a day. The bustbin holds a surprising amount not like my old roomba! There are also different options such as a full clean, quick clean, spot clean or even along the wall setting. The features on this is endless to create that person clean that you want. Not to mention there is a UV light on the bottom so it disinfects as it cleans. Aside from just vacuuming, it can have a mop attachment installed too which we haven't used because we don't have a big enough space for it to mop! .
I'm not kidding when I tell you that I might be in love with this. We have been using it a month and now we only fully vacuum once a week and run our bObsweep once a day. I don't know how I lived without my little blue cleaning robot 😍

Puppies: keeping me distracted and busy from 7 am till midnight 😴
.
Everyone's loving comments make me so happy. It makes me smile thinking about Pancakes and my last day together. Thank you everyone. Thank you for loving her and I'm glad I could share our life with you 💕 In the next week we will be editing our video from a Pancakes last day.

I would like to take the time to let everyone know what happened with Pancakes.
.
Many of you know that Pancakes was in the ICU this past weekend. She went in on Friday and we were told that she might not make it through the night. But she did. They were able to taper her oxygen down to room level and she was breathing normally. They told me she could go home on Monday. At first I was SOO happy that I got to have my dog back and she was ALIVE. But when I went in on Sunday to visit her, her doctors told me that her time might be limited. Young adult dogs with Congestive heart failure usually live about 1 year. Pancakes, being 16 and also having a bunch of other issues, was projected to live another couple months.... if we were lucky.
.
I made a hard decisions that night. The anxiety of coming home to a dead/dying dog and feeling horrible I couldn't be there for her and thinking how scared and alone she would have been. She wouldn't have died peacefully in her sleep, she would have been suffocating.... We decided it was only fair and right by us to let Pancakes go when she was happy and it suffering.
.
Monday on 9/11/2017, I picked Pancakes up front the hospital and we started our last day together. I promised I would make it her best day ever. Just us, no other dogs. We went to Starbucks and McDonald's. She got treats at the pet store. At lunch we got some photos taken. We ate a cheeseburger and fries together. We went to an to flower field to pick a Pancakes bouquet. We did some pawprint art and ate some cookies. Then I met up with my parents who drove 5 hours from Seattle at a park. Pancakes chased the ducks one last time. Finally we all went to the hospital where we got to say our goodbyes. I think she knew it was time. She fell asleep on my foot as we waited for the doctors. As they gave her the injection, I held her and she wagged her tail while looking at me with her soulful eyes and fell asleep. She didn't fight it, whine, twitch, anything. I felt so peaceful in that moment. I didn't have to worry about my girl anymore. 15 years of memories I have with her will keep her alive in my heart. .
May you rest in paradise Pancakes. #teampancakesforever

Went to sleep in my bed for the first time without you. The night was lonely and cold. I woke up with a heavy heart knowing you weren't next to me. The sound of my alarm isn't anything like your kisses in the morning. .

"She was my friend, my defender, my partner, my dog.
I was her leader, her love, her life.
She was mine, faithful and true, to the last beat of her heart."
.
I want everyone to know that I appreciated all the love. I know we were MIA and there weren't updates but its been a rough week. I promise to make an update post later about what happened. But we made the decision to euthanize Pancakes. Pancakes and I spent the day together and had the best day ever. We took so many photos and videos. We laughed, smiled, cried and ate a lot of food. She has been loved by so many people and my heart was filled with so much love today. I miss her already but the last 15 years has been such a blessing. I love you Pancakes. So much. 💕

Pancakes Update 9/9 1 PM:
First off, I want to thank EVERYONE for their comments, messages and all the heart felt things you have said. I promise I will read them all but I can't promise I willl respond. Bear with me as the next couple of days will be hard and I need a break from social media in the time being.
.
Hey everyone, if you saw on my story last night we made an emergency vet visit with Pancakes. We drove 6 hours from Vancouver to Pullman to visit some friends and I brought all the dogs with me. Pancakes gets anxious in car rides and traveling but usually it just means we have to spoil her and feed her canned food. However when we got to Pullman she was having trouble breathing, seemed sedate, uncomfortable, and bloated. She declined quickly and we took her in. For all that don't know. Pancakes is 16 years old and has heart disease and lung disease. They got her into an oxygen chamber and talked over some options with us. We decided to do radiographs, keep her in ICU, do blood work and other things to figure out what was wrong. X-ray showed she had gone into right congestive heart failure. Along with that she might have a infection in her lungs. At this point she is critical but we are just waiting to see if she gets better or not. Since last night she hasn't gotten better but she hasn't gotten worse. She is still really dependent on the oxygen and we are hoping she can be comfortable. The next couple of days will determine what we will decide to do but for now it doesn't look too good.

Fires are everywhere right now in our corner of the world. Praying that it gets contained soon and for the safety of all the firemen and women who are working hard to keep everyone safe. .
Everyone in the PDX area, keep you and your dogs inside. There is ash falling from the sky and the air quality is hazardous. Cuddle those dogs, give them some ice cubes to stay cool and watch a movie. Stay smart and safe everyone 💕

Snacking on some Emmy's assorted cookie treats after our blood donation! We got these cookies in our monthly @pettreater ! Use the link in our bio to sign up today!
#pettreaterfriends #pettreater @pettreater .
.
I've gotten a lot of questions in my DM after posting about our blood donation session. I would like to talk a little more about it for people that are curious. Gumbo and Aslan are both blood donors for @dovelewispdx in Portland, OR. Most major cities or big vet clinics have a blood donor program. A quick google search or asking your local vet to point you in the right direction will give you more information. Most places have a weight requirement. At Dove Lewis, dogs must be at least 55 pounds and be between 1-7 years old. Requirements vary from program to program but remember they do take a good amount of blood (nothing that will hurt your dog) to make it a significant donation. Dogs can donate blood every 8 weeks and dogs also have blood types just like humans do! The dogs blood is usually tested the day of donation to make sure they are fully fit to donate. The donation only takes a couple minutes and our dogs get lots of treats and a toy at the end of their donation! If you have a dog that is able to donate you should do it! It is an amazing thing to do for your community and help sick dogs who need it!

Harriet saw her brother Hoffman at a club BBQ! They had so much fun together, but puppies do not stay still for photos!
.
Fun fact: All puppies from the same litter have names that start with the same letter. Harriet was an H litter so her siblings are Hidalgo, Hoffman, Houdini, Harper, Hans, And Hannold. No two active dogs in the program have the same name. Once a guide dog is retired or a puppy in training is career changed, the name will be reused. Breeding dog's names usually do not get reused.
