Did you watch last night's Pound Pups episode about Jewel? Here's an update on life since the show from her owner Rose!
Jewel is finally living her happily ever after story, but it wasn’t always smooth sailing. About 9 months after adopting her, after she’d wedged herself firmly into our hearts, she became extremely unwell. Her symptoms stumped numerous vets and specialists and she required countless tests, all coming back negative or inconclusive. She ended up admitted to the vet hospital and no one thought she would make it. Somehow she pulled through and we luckily kept on searching for answers. Not long after that we were finally given the suggestion that she may have an auto immune disease, which we now manage carefully with a very strict diet. She is definitely not 100% back to her old self but she is happy and healthy and even has a new brother, another rescue dog we adopted! They are the BEST of friends and it’s just so heartwarming seeing them so happy. We could never have gotten through all Jewel's health problems without the amazing support and donations from SO many people - to all of you thank you from the bottom of my heart. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the team at Mark Vette's, Megan, Erin & the girls at The Strand Veterinarian, Lyn Thomson at Raw Essentials, Purina, and everyone who donated, offered their services, or sent messages of support, thank you for EVERYTHING you have done to help us, we couldn’t have got through it without you! Jewel now spends most of her days either lazing in the sun or racing around with her new pal Biscuit, she’s a much loved part of our family and I wouldn’t change her for the world xx
I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and made lots of wonderful memories 💝 As 2017 is getting closer, remember to let go of past hurt or situations that no longer serve you 💜 Letting go doesn't mean that you don't care about someone or something anymore. It is the wholeheartedly decision to not let this person or situation have control over you any longer. You decide to surrender and let go and what's meant to be will always find away :) Somethings just need space and time to get the best result and being content with everything right now in this moment is what life is about. Living in the moment is the best advice anyone can give and receive ❤️
2016 has been a huge effort from everyone at Emirates Team New Zealand. It's the unsung team members in the background that make the difference day to day and towards the ultimate goal of winning back the America's Cup in 2017.
I posted a few weeks ago on some of the indications that progress on gender equality has stalled - and is even in reverse gear. Here's another indication - the numbers of women holding the highest political office in their countries peaked in 2011, but have now fallen back to 2009 levels. This op ed in the Washington Post calls the decline "stunning". Work to do to achieve gender equality in political representation! https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/monkey-cage/wp/2017/01/09/this-is-whats-behind-the-stunning-decline-in-female-political-leaders/?utm_term=.1c9891860e91
The baby slept through the night! The baby slept through the night! This is not a drill! The last time he slept through the night was 28 February. How do I make it happen again?! Do I have to replicate the conditions? Christmas every day?! What did we do last night? We didn't do the routine! He fell asleep on my lap watching Frozen for the 860 millionth time and then I transferred him into bed. No bath! No story! No bottle! Does this mean I have to watch Frozen every night? Is he sick? But he has been sick the last two nights and he woke a trillion and kill me now times! So he can't be sick! We bought an enormous teddy from the warehouse for $10 (such a bargain) did he think the teddy was one of us? Is it a co-sleeping teddy? Was it the trampoline? Do I have to start a charity that provides sleep deprived parents of almost two year olds trampolines and giant co-sleeping teddies?! What if he does it again?! What if he is turning a corner? What does it mean?! What if he's going to start actually sleeping now?! What if sleep is just a developmental milestone and he has only just met it now at 23 months and every child is different and there's nothing wrong with him and nothing we could have done? What if he goes back to waking a fuck tonne every night again? Oh well I will just turn my brain off and enjoy waking up without a headache. Damn on this much sleep I'm going to parent the fuck out of this day. I'm going to be Mary Fucking Poppins all day long. Is this what getting sleep feels like?? I feel like I'm super human like I could bench press a fucking rainbow. 🙌🏼 If you see me today with tiny birds following me, singing songs about spoonfuls of sugar and shit then come say hi - the margaritas are on me. Yeeeeeeow! I havent felt this way since . Have a great day everyone!! Everything is beautiful! Fuck yeah.
