• mac is having fun at the lake and swimming in the lake for the first time ever.
• mac doesn't do any dog sports so forgive the fact that his attempt of a jump off the dock was less than graceful but ♀️
• mac is happy and safe and to me that's all that matters
gotta get that juice
Let's talk about Mental health, since it is May (mental health awareness month).
~~~Look at the picture~~~
● the bottom right corner:
what somebody who doesn't struggle mentally might see; It's bright and cheerful to look at. You can't help but be happy looking at it. ● the bottom left corner:
what someone who suffers from depression might see; You can't see anything...it's dark and frightening. You can't help but feel "sad" looking at it.
● the top right corner:
what someone who has anxiety might see; There's alot going on...too much going on actually. What is going on? There's a dog? There's a sign? There's a wooded area? Is the dog okay? What if the wooded area isn't safe? What does the sign say? You can't help but to feel overwhelmed looking at it.
● the top left corner:
what somebody with bipolar disorder might see; it's black and white. Happy and/or sad. Maybe you went here a few weeks ago and it seemed like a free and open place to be....but now when you've returned you no longer feel that way now it just feels closed and confining to you. You can't help but feel like you don't know what to feel, you're torn inside trying to decide how to feel looking at it. ~I hope maybe this helped someone today learn that although we might see the same picture that doesn't mean we all view it the same way. I hope this helped kind of give you a glimpse of what Mental health can be like and how real of an issue it can be. I want to disclaim the fact that I'm not assuming how anyone feels its just my own personal ideas of how a person with these issues MIGHT feel. I made a lighthearted post about mental health but please know at the end of the day mental health isnt lighthearted at all it is a very real struggle with alot of people. Feel free to spread awareness about mental health with me this May and have a good day
FREE TO GOOD HOME!
i am just joking
Happiness. Mac and I could do this everyday; Hiking, meeting other dogs, and sniffing everything
Name brand v.s. Generic ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Lmfao I impulsively decided to try and recreate 2 of our role models here on Instagram. Hope our knock off pictures make you smile, bc those 2 (Draco & Gwen) are definitely the boujee versions of us lmfao Nothing but love for @goldenboymalfoy & @gweneapig , stay great
Getting a decent picture of him is always an interesting battle
Sometimes I think Mac has multiple personalities? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
•Is he a show dog? lmfaNO but sometimes I wish he was lol
•what have y'all been up to? Training but more-so refreshing basics and scent work. •Does Mac have any cons/fears/problems? Lately he's been really shy around people so were doing socializing around people to try and reset his brain back into being neutral towards them. •What's something cool yall are gonna do? Well get ready to see some KY Derby action going on here soon
•whats something yall have been stuck in the mud with training wise? Impulse control and teaching him theres a difference between intelligent disobedience and just being a stubborn butt.
~~New Fave Thing~~
Today we went to a thrift type store and stumbled across a large breed dog stroller. I've never seen 1 for large breeds before but my mom has several dog strollers for small breeds. I being the over spontaneous and irrational person I am bought it without a doubt of hesitation in me at all. Alot of times my impulsivity can lead me in some not so great places I can officially say this is one of my most favorite things I own, dog specifically. Mac seems to enjoy is so far and Bella (small dog under Mac) definitely prefers it over walking that's for sure! I wish I knew the actual brand so I could reccomend it but I'm out of luck on that part but I'm sure they probably sell them on amazon? Aside from that, 10/10 highly reccomend/adore. It'll be fun to use on future outings. We actually put it together at the store amd several people ooed and awe'd @ how cute Mac was in it (along with taking pics w/out permission but in their defense Mac IS super cute...in it...lmfao) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It's Autism Awareness month!
The reason my camera is always so full is bc I have to continously take pictures for the "perfect" one but in the process you get silly faces and 'right as I was about to shake' faces
