"Quanto sono belli i gabbiani mamma, quanto è bella questa luce a fine giornata mamma, quanto è bello correre liberi quando in spiaggia non c'è nessuno, solo noi, io, te, la zia e Nanuk: il nostro branco. Il fruscio delle onde, la sabbia che disegna le nostre impronte, gli avanzi dei panini mangiati voracemente dai bagnanti il pomeriggio ormai passato, un mare di odori, un mare tutto per noi. Grazie mamma per averci dato carta bianca dopo aver collaborato insieme nell'esserci adattati a nuovi ambienti momentanei, nuove routine."
Spesso chiediamo tanto ai nostri cani, spesso senza accorgecene. Chiediamo di seguirci ovunque, di dormire in posti diversi, dagli odori diversi, solo per accontentare noi umani durante brevi viaggi, vacanze che siano. Tutto giusto. Le esperienze arricchiscono e nonostante a volte ci mettano un pizzico di controvoglia, lo fanno. E lo fanno bene. Ma cosa c'è di meglio che premiarli per tutto questo con esplosioni di libertà ed esplorazioni dove possano essere liberi di esprimersi con il corpo, le energie ed acuire al massimo tutti i loro sensi?
Ci vuole anche questo. Ci vuole il premio massimo. Quello di essere cani e fare i cani all'ennesima potenza.
E la vera bellezza incalza🌅
Running through the week like... #humpday . Yes my tail looks like a pool stick-the vet just took my stitches out, hopefully now I can grow some fur back😜.
On a separate note, I just wanted to share a heartfelt thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone for all of the love, support and donations that they have sent to Odin. He is doing so amazing, I just can’t get over how well animals adapt to their situation, no matter how traumatic. Our biggest barrier right now is trying to get 2 wounds he has to heal up (one on each leg). He is a master at getting his bandages off and has even gotten the hood of shame off a couple of times while we weren’t at home. Moving forward, we are still deciding on the prosthetic we want to put him in but I think we are down to two different options. I will continue to update everyone and have lots of pics and videos of his prosthetic once we get it...onward and upwards❤️.
Raisin’s face with everything new around her😂
We arrived safely in Salt Lake City on Monday, and Raisin did amazing during the flight! We were able to find an amazing apartment with huge dog park and wash in it! Flew back yesterday and Raisin was dead asleep the whole flight. And later today I’ll be flying to Japan and will be there for about a month! Unfortunately can’t take the dogs with me, but they’ll be in great care!

Happy Hump! We are also on the hump of our roadtrip! Halfway there. Today we had two pretty big hikes We did the Quirang and Old manof storr! Ayke did so well And she nearly everything off leash because she has so much more balance then we had. It was prettt heavy also for her narrow and steel paths! You can check it in our stories
She is just like a mountain goat 🐏
Would your dog love those hikes?
Sometimes I wonder what happened to the people I gave directions to 🤔😂
I’m halfway through my last full week at my current job! Also dying to travel this summer.. do you guys have any upcoming travel plans?

Me when I realize it’s only Wednesday
Millie is absolutely ridiculous when we go to the dog park. She sticks her hole face in this water hold and eats the water. 😂
Thank you for the kind comments about Lexa on my last post!
Please read if you’ve been lost on Instagram lately.
Social media can be a huge time suck, it can be bad for your mental health, but it can also be this amazing and wonderful thing. Last night we got accepted by @thenorthwestdog to be models for them. When I started this Instagram I NEVER would have thought that other people would give a damn about Angel, and I honestly started it just cause I was posting only photos of her to my personal Instagram(like I feel a majority of us did).
I only started taking Instagram “seriously” about 7 months ago. I got back into photography, and have met SO many amazing people through this platform. If you’ve been struggling on this app, I suggest a break. If you’re sick of seeing people put each other down, I suggest you block those people and find new ones to follow. If you’re a big account that puts down smaller accounts for doing what you used to do in the beginning and having a god complex about you, guess what? We all started somewhere.. It can be a toxic place ESPECIALLY if you struggle from mental health issues like I do, but I’ve been trying to see the positive side of it, and last night all the support we received from the northwest dog community was AMAZING. That’s the shit I wanna see on instagram🖤 ily all.
What’s some weird shit your dog about your dog? I was thinking about it this morning after Cas tried to pick up a dead squirrel 🙃
Cas shakes off while he’s still in water and refuses to poop in the morning about 95% of the time. He’s not as big of a fan of short haired dogs compared to how much he loves fluffy dogs. He will 100% try to get involved with you using the bathroom. Mona has extreme prey drive and is currently staring through a crack in the fence waiting for a bunny to appear, and this morning she was hiding behind the toilet during our 5am rainstorm. She also barks at me to tell me when she’s thirsty half the time as if she needs approval to drink water. Actually, she barks at me about everything she wants me to know.
Then little Leo... the funny little puppy that he is. His signal that he needs to use the bathroom is to carry around a giant toy and pace around the house with it. He likes to sometimes lick poop but never eats it. He barks at upside trash cans on trash can, but not when they’re right side up 😂 Also, I didn’t teach him “hug” but he hugs Mona all of the time when I’m talking to them together.
My lil trio is special 😂
Serving up some moody feels this wet dog Wednesday ⠀⠀
↟ ↟ ↟ ⠀⠀
I’ve been so into moody shots and editing lately - especially with all the summer rain we’ve been getting. Starting work again has been a big change this week but hopefully I’ll be able to get back in the swing of things and get out for more photos 😏
