Meet Angel @adoptangeldc, our new foster from @muttlove_rescue ! Angel is a very spunky senior miniature pinscher mix, and is looking for her forever home. Her hobbies include eating snacks, snuggling, and being close to her green 🐊 toy. Not a big fan of other animals or having her nails clipped but her puppy dog eyes easily make you forget! 💅🏻 #foster#adoptdontshop#adoptangel
Yesterday afternoon we said goodbye to our sweet baby boy, Patrick. After nearly 5 months of battling liver disease, we made the difficult decision to have him put to sleep at home. Patrick had gone into end-stage liver failure and just wasn't his happy, active self anymore-- a buildup of ammonia his liver was no longer able to process was making him unable to stop pacing or to rest, and we knew he wasn't going to get better. On his last day with us, we took him to his favorite place, Prospect Park, and he was surrounded by love when he went. This photo is of him asleep just before he crossed over. He was ready to finally sleep, he even climbed up into the bed with all of us there and lay down, closing his eyes for the first time in almost two days. After the doctor gave him a sedative, he even snored for a minute or two (which is how we always know he's really, really tired and needs a rest). I held him in my arms and scratched his ears and squeezed his neck folds and told him what a good boy he was until he was gone (and then for a while after he was gone, too). We miss him so, so much and it feels impossible to move to DC today and start a new job tomorrow without him, but I am going to try. Thank you @badassbrooklyn for bringing him into our lives for 5 sweet, short years. Patrick was the happiest, weirdest, most wonderful dog in the entire world. He loved to jump up on strangers to say hi, wagged his tail nearly constantly, and never met a pizza crust or a street treat he didn't like. We are going to do our best to remember him that way and we hope everyone who knows him does too. He was the best thing to ever happen to me. Every morning I woke up happy to see him, and every time I came home I looked forward to hearing him run to the door and opening it to his smiling face and wagging tail. I am never, ever going to forget him or to stop missing him.
How adorable are these two?! Our sweet foster Jessica Jones is available for adoption from @badassbrooklyn. She’s about 3 years old, house trained, loves other dogs, and has the most gentle, calm personality I’ve ever seen. She takes a little while to warm up to new people, but it’s such a rewarding experience to know her once she does! Jessica would love love love to be in a home with another dog. #adoptdontshop#foster
Finally made it the Grand Canyon and it’s as otherworldly and breathtaking as I imagined— absolutely perfect way to end our epic southwest road trip! And yes we did get matching Moab shirts and we look fantastic if I may say so myself. 🤙🏻 #grandcanyon#arizona#findyourpark#see_arizona#radparks
Definition of a good sport: wakes up before 5am for a sunrise hike, drives an hour out the way to climb goblins in 100-degree cloudless weather, helps you down when you’ve accidentally climbed too high and are too scared to jump off.🤴🏽 #desertmuse#beautahful#utahisrad#findyourpark#utahgram
