Monday motivation 


So you may know that my big girl Anna only has three legs. She’s missing her front right leg due to an accident she incurred before we adopted her. If it were a back leg, it wouldn’t be as much of an issue, but being her front leg, she gets tired a lot faster since she puts so much pressure on that one front leg. When she’s tired she sits alot and she does this stumble and chest bump on the ground. Not always, but it’s a definite indicator that it’s time for us to sit for a bit.


Lola, on the other hand, is very much still a puppy and loves – and needs – to run and play and chase squirrel.

I can’t keep walking with one while the other is hurting, right? So I’ve devised a dog sling to carry Anna around the park when she’s tired.

You know those baby carry slings made out of a lot of material that you see some mom’s with? Like a papoose carrier but for a dog.

My original choice of material was too stretchy. It didn’t hold in place so Anna kept sagging out of the thing. So I went home and rummaged through my stash of material –

– don’t we all have a stash of material?

And found something that I think will work.  Now I’ll give it another try. I think this all cotton material will work  better. It’s pretty strong and doesn’t give as much.

And Duke, he doesn’t care if we’re walking or sitting, as long as he gets to be with the pack.


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have some great inspiration this week.
