Ah! It's been so long since I've posted anything!!

I have just been accepted into an AHT program. I am very excited but also nervous to leave my pets!

The program I chose is half online, half on campus. We start on campus for a two months, then we learn the theory aspect online, then back on campus for two and a half months. The second year is pretty much the same. While on campus I will be living in res., therefore I can't take my pets with me. I live in Manitoba and will be taking the program in Alberta, so I won't be close to home. I have never been away from my pets for longer than a week. When I travel I usually take them with me. My family will be taking care of my dogs and pigs. I know my babies will be in excellent hands. I just feel so guilty leaving them because they are my responsibility, not my parents'.

I am going to compile an extensive list of absolutely everything about taking care of everyone, and what to do in case of emergencies. My mother has assured me that if anything seems slightly out of the ordinary she will take them to the vet right away. I am not so much worried about my dogs. I know they will miss me, but my parents love them and will spoil them while I'm away. I'm mostly worried about the pigs. I feel really bad because it is A LOT of work to take care of them. Sheldon needs his eyes washed out daily, and I clean their cage every second day. I'm going to try to raise their cage to make it easier for cleaning. I am also going to have to show my family how to do everything since I am their sole caregiver.

I'll post some pictures of Penny and Sheldon in a wee bit!!

Sheldon always looks like he's so aware that he's living a really good life. :)

Thanks, everyone!!

Sheldon is so nice to snuggle with! He's so calm and gentle, and he has the most squishy dewlap!

Thanks, poppycorn!

I really wish my camera didn't take such poopy pictures. I feel like these pics just don't do them justice! Perhaps I will have to invest in a new one! :)

Took some Christmas pictures of my fur children! The pics of my dogs are a bit blurry because my camera sucks when the flash is off. I apologize for that!

Here's my little peegs! I'm surprised I got them into the basket together without Penny going all diva!

Image

Here are my little dogs, Bosley & Archie.

Image

Here's my little Archie bear. He's my best bud and follows me everywhere I go <3

Season's Greetings, everyone!

Whoa, it's been over a month since I've last posted. I hope everyone is having a good new year so far! Not much is new with us. I had my gallbladder removed last week, so I've been pretty lazy!
BUT! Today is a very special day!!

What's this you say? Today is my anniversary?!

Image

Today is Penny's 1 year piggy-versary of the day I rescued her! :D

Image

I can't believe it's been a year already! It feels like it was just yesterday that I was making the trip to go pick her up. When I got to her previous owner's house, I looked into a cardboard box and saw a little wee aby peeking back at me. She was so small and crazy. Now she's big and crazy. I love her so much and I am so thankful for her. She makes me smile and brightens my day.

Image

I don't know what Sheldon would do without her, either. He depends on her a lot for security. He was so shy and scared when he got here, and Penny taught him how to be a pig again.

Image

Sheldon's been good. It's been cold here lately, and I've noticed on cool days he can usually be found in a cozy. I think the cool weather bugs his joints.

Image

He's such a good little boy! I love my chocolate caterpillar. <3

Image

Happy Anniversary, Penny! I love you so much! May we have many more together! <3 xoxo

Image

Well, I suppose that's all for now. 'Til next time!
