Happy "Gotcha" Day Miley!

2 years ago today I picked up Miley to "foster" her until she found her forever home. Little did I know she was in her forever home. While I am a foster failure with her and George Henry, I am proud to say these were some great failures. I really didn't want another Dog but she is special to me in many ways.

As some of you know my Dad is on a lung transplant list. He initially was diagnosed with lung issues 2 years ago in January. In March and April he was really struggling and this was when I had started fostering Miley. The last thing I needed was another responsibility. But Miley turned out to be a good responsibility for me. There were days I was so down and she would be one of the only things to bring a smile to my face. She is in a word fun. She is always in a good mood, loves anything living, other dogs, cats, birds, people, etc and has a tongue that sticks out most of the time which is so cute and makes it impossible to be upset when she's around.

She has come a long way from that anxious dog I picked up. Although I didn't "officially" adopt her until October I still consider this her "gotcha" day. Happy Gotcha Day Baby Girl.

I just wanted to reach out and say Hi. For those of you who read I hope you all had a great time at March in the Pugs. I had (we) had wanted to go but I am just so exhausted. Work is really taking it's toll on me.

I went to DC for a conference last weekend and got back 9pm on sunday night and then worked all week. I had some off campus and oral practical exams this week so it was very time consuming. I was honestly hoping I could make it through the week.

Anyway the pugs are great. Brutus had surgery while I was in DC. He had 2 adenoid tumors taken off of his eye and a large tumor taken from his left rear area around his tail. He made it through like a champ.

My Dad is on a lung transplant list and tonight I found out earlier today his lung collapsed. He is ok for now but the first 24 hours are critical. I am on spring break and probably going to go home tomorrow. I am suppose to go to another conference on Wed thru Friday and I have no idea what's going to happen with that.

I just wanted to say Hi. I feel really bad that I didn't get to see some of you at March in the Pugs. work is killing me. I have barely been on the computer/twitter lately. I still read everyones blog and am very grateful to be a part of this community. I feel like a flake because I haven't been to many events lately. I just wanted to say Hi.
