I’m sorry it’s been so long since posting, but as you can imagine, moving overseas is a big job. Add in several chronic conditions, and it’s been a very difficult couple of months for me.
My husband and I are mostly settled in now though. We are living with my parents until we are able to sort out long term employment and housing.
I’m hoping to write out a more detailed post on the move, however, today I wanted to share some other exciting news!
For years, my husband and I have wanted to get a dog. We were unable to where we lived in the UK, and so we decided that when we moved into our own home here, we’d get a rescue.
Well, the opportunity to get the sweetest dog came earlier than expected! A friend of my Mom’s, who lives close by, was looking after a little chiweenie dog (a mix of a chihuahua and dachshund). She is a rescue, however the lady that had her was only looking after her temporarily, and could not keep her.
We met the dog, and fell in love. She was perfect for us. She also gave me a huge sense of calm, which was so important.
So, we decided to take her, and we now own the world’s best chiweenie, Sasha! 🙂
Now, Sasha has become more than a pet. We’ve decided to start training her as a service dog for me.
We noticed Sasha performing certain tasks that were really useful, and after discussing things with a medical professional, they agreed that I qualify for a service animal. They thought that if Sasha was naturally doing service tasks already, and we wanted to see if she could qualify and be trained, then they’d support me.
So, Sasha is now officially in training! I’m hopeful that it works out, as she has already been so helpful to me, and brought so much joy to my life.
