Life Lately & My Blogging Thoughts

Hi, good morning!
I've taken a bit of an unplanned hiatus after losing Moose because it was simply too hard to focus on a blog where half the name belonged to him.

It's been a tough month. I've laughed, I've cried, I've held Oliver while he cried looking for Moose, I've spent a lot of my time consoling Oliver and Mater through this. It's hard losing a pet, especially when they're only 4.

Over the past month, I've been thinking long and hard about my blog and where I want to go from here. I'm debating starting completely fresh and rebranding. The only things that I have on here that were ever truly successful were my heart posts, which I can simply transfer onto my new blog. I've started to develop interests in things that I never thought I would (knitting, baking, canning, freezer meals, etc) and I'd love to start fresh with things I've been doing around here instead of the same old posts I was doing over here. It's going to be a long and hard process to start from the ground up, but I think I'm ready for the challenge. I'll be sure to share my new info once it's ready.

Thank you again for all the lovely comments, emails and conversations I've had over the past three years on Oliver and Moose, it's really helped me become the person I am today.

Goodbye, Moose

It has been killing me even thinking about writing this post. It's been a wild week. On Tuesday, I put my sweet, precious Moose to sleep. It broke my heart. In pieces. It's broken Oliver and Mater's hearts, too. I've been spending a lot of time with my babies since because I can't even imagine how they must feel.

After four and a half years of battling FVR, Moose finally had an outbreak that he couldn't kick. By the time I put him down, he was in so much pain that he wouldn't even let me touch him. The vet told me that they could find some short term fixes but nothing long term. It just wasn't fair to him. I finally swallowed up my selfishness so I could let him be at peace. He was hands down the strongest animal that I could have ever imagined owning and I'm so proud of him for fighting as hard as he did.

Goodbye, my Moose
