See You Later Maryland

bye md1Let me start by saying that writing this post is very difficult for me so please bear with me if I get very sentimental.  I have lived in many places throughout the US, but there are two places in this country that really feel like home to me and they are: New York, where I spent a great deal of time with my aunts and cousins; and Maryland. where I figured out my passion for dogs.  Because Cynthia got a job in Boston we had to move.  Well, Cynthia moved late last year, I, on the other hand, just got here.  Yes, I was doing my best not to move, but here I am in Boston.

bye md2I’ve been going back and forth from MD to MA because I had to put our house for sale and I’ll probably have to do a little more traveling until we sell it.  The last time I was in MD, I went to Crofton, a neighborhood where I used to walk a gorgeous GSD named Luca.  I took Alex with me and while she explored her surroundings all I felt was a great sense of loss and sadness.  Yes, I was about to start crying, but then I saw Alex’s face.

bye md3I think, no, let me rephrase that, I know Alex sensed how I felt and she gave me this amazing look as if saying, “It’s ok mom.  I know you don’t want to leave MD, but you know what?  We may be back in the future.  Please don’t look so sad.”  Alex is a very special dog, I know all pet parents say that about their dogs, so add me to that list.  But seriously, she is a special dog because she is very in tune with my moods.  She knows when I am angry, many times before I do, sad or not feeling well.

bye md4Anyway, after our walk in Crofton, we went back home and continued to pack.  As you can see, Alex was a lot of help.  She was busy supervising my work and playing with her toy.

While I was loading our things in the car, Alex got all excited.  To her a trip in the car is always fun.  Seeing her enthusiasm made me think a lot while I was driving.  Yes, I am going to miss the amazing pet parents and furry kids I met, the walks in the neighborhoods around Odenton, our house, the delicious pizza from Boli’s, and so much more, but there is a lot that we, as a family, will encounter in this new place and that is what I have to keep in mind every time I am homesick.

bye md6Don’t take me wrong, Boston is a beautiful place and I do like it, but I think it will take a bit of time getting used to it.  I can’t and won’t say goodbye to Maryland.  I’ll rather say, “See you later Maryland,” and leave it at that.  Thanks to all the pet parents that trusted me with their furry kids and the best to all of you.  Until I see you again, please take care of yourself and your canine companions.

Packing With The Help Of My Canine Companions

IMG_6671This is Alex contibution to our move: sleep like a baby.  Since I know that dogs love routine, I am doing my best to keep things as usual specially when it comes to walks.

2tired1Bella also enjoys her bed, but many times she hangs out by the sliding doors in our eat-in kitchen.  Bella’s contribution: guard dog.

Our move to Boston is getting closer and closer, therefore I am going to enjoy the time I have here in Maryland.  I am certainly going to miss our house, and the amazing dogs and pet parents I met during the past few years.

Boston Bound Family/Pack

We are what?  I am afraid.  Hold me mom!

We are what? I am afraid. Hold me mom!

Cynthia received a nice offer for a new job in Boston, MA so we’ll be moving within the next couple of weeks.  Bella, our almost 4 year old pit mix, has never moved with us, therefore her reaction on the above picture is understandable, right?

We are moving?  Yeah!!

We are moving? Yeah!!

Alex, on the other hand, has moved with us several times when Cynthia was in the military so she is used to it.  I am hoping that Bella eventually feels the same way.

I may, or may not, be able to blog on a regular basis.  I will try though.  Why?  Misery loves company.  But seriously, it is a way to show, I hope, other pet parents how crazy a move to a new city can be specially if you have two furry kids: Alex the laid back pittie; and Bella the superenergetic one.

I am going to miss all the dogs that vacationed with us, and their amazing pet parents, therefore to all of you who trusted us with your furry kids I’d like to say on behalf of Cynthia, Alex, and Bella, thanks a million for everything and we wish you much love, health, prosperity and peace.
