So I’ve been in adopting a rescue dog hell pretty much all weekend with my lovely daughter Sasha. We have been negotiating together the murky waters of getting approved for a dog (we are); and then rather unsuccessfully navigating the twists and turns of getting a dog we both want. We thought we had Elf but the adoption group felt he was not a dog that would do well in our 2 bedroom apartment (he doesn’t like to walk on a leash). There has been a Lance, really cute Dachshund, who was adopted by the family whose application was ahead of our’s; and Patch, a Terrier loved by Sasha (she’s starting to feel desperate), and less by me.
We have arrived at Taco, a small (under 10 lbs, very important) sweet girl, rescued from a kill facility who really loved both of us. I thought she was great. Sasha needed time to think about it.
There’s also Bambi and Nadia and Teddy and Felix. I believe, ultimately, the dog will pick us. I keep reassuring Sasha, who gets a little more wigged out at the whole prospect than I do. And I love educating ourselves and searching together and learning and being offered the occasion to grow and accept, in love and enthusiasm.
Not surprisingly, Sasha and I have disagreed a lot. And yet, we keep on, keeping on knowing in our hearts that the new addition to our family will ultimately reveal him/her self.
Sasha sent me this awesome video tonight, to help pave the way. It is such a refreshing take on the unfathomable and how relationships, even to something as incongruous as penguins, can be joyous and fun and full of an unbelievable light:

Onward toward Taco, my lovely Sasha! And may we always be this lovingly engaged in our mutual happiness and the great Big life that we continue to have together!

Big Namaste

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
