Once again we woke up to a few inches of snow, enough to change the scenery back to winter. It’s March first, it’s not suppose to get warm for a few weeks or month but we are all craving hot sunny days. I really wish we could take a vacation right now. But as always, with any plans of vacation comes my sadness of leaving Achilles. Achilles is an english bulldog, he has diverticulitis of the esophagus, and it’s not everyone that can feed him right. We really only trust family to look after him. The main thing is to keep him in his bed for a couple hours after he eats. At home, he knows his routine and it’s easy. My relationship with him surprises me everyday. I have always been an animal lover, I never had a dog growing up but we did have a ferret. And she was the best. But dogs really interact with you. I really have a relationship with him, a mix of mom and son and best friends. We understand each other without many words. We love each other without having to explain what love is. We trust and protect each other. I know it’s not everyone who gets this close to their pets but we really do have something special. And the thought of enjoying myself on a beach somewhere is actually painful if he is not in the picture too. And because of that, we always choose road trips instead of flying. How many hours to Florida by car?
