Entering the next phase for my blog

Hello everybody! Life has been extremely busy and I’m getting ready to start high school this fall. My brother has gone off to college and it’s been a very busy time with some health issues in my family. I’m keen to start blogging again, but in a slightly different way.

One thing I know for sure is that I’m determined to become a vet and work with animals for my career. Continuing to explore and share my thoughts about animals here on my blog seems like a good idea.

Reggie, our black lab, just turned five a few weeks ago. Whenever my brother comes to visit and then returns to college, Reggie goes through a bout of depression for a week or two when he doesn’t want to do anything and he looks sad! The spring weather is finally starting to come around and he’s back to retrieving in the pond.

Toffee and Caramel, our two cats, are two and a half years old. The cats definitely have spring fever and have started climbing the screens on our porch again!

We’ve lost a couple more of our chickens in the past year and we’re planning to get some more this summer. It’s been a couple of years since we had baby chicks.

Tuck, my pet rat, has a new home with a wonderful family who lets him out of his cage multiple times each day to play with him. I realized that I just didn’t have enough time for him and that he needed more attention. We’re really happy that he’s so happy now!

I’m looking forward to blogging more and hearing what you guys would be interested in knowing. Happy spring!

  1. Nice to hear the updates! I haven’t wrtten on my blog for ages, for much the same reasons as you. So cool that you want to be a vet – a great vocation for someone with so much passion for animals.

  2. I’m excited that you are very clear about your career plans. One time recently when I was at the vet’s with my cats, there was a young teenager there volunteering and ‘shadowing’ the vet as part of her self-training to become a vet. I thought that seemed really fun.

    1. Hi Ellen! I did get to volunteer for a local vet when they needed temporary help and I really loved it. I’m hoping to find some work like that this summer. Happy spring 🙂 🙂
