Arrival Story: My family was actually looking for an Eskie for a while. We had to get him online because there are no breeders in our part of NY. Anyway, he was flown in on Friday and we had to go to the airport to pick him up. It got scary because he should have been here in the afternoon, but we got him late at night, because of the flight. Anyways, he's with his forever family now and we love Gypsy dearly...even though I'm bawling my eyes out like a new Mom who has just brought her new baby home. :-)
Bio: I can tell you all that I get very confused because Mom and Auntie came up with so many nicknames for me! BOL
Ok. I seem to really be freaking Mom out here. First, I'm itching like crazy and while Jack is too, he doesn't seem to be as bad as I am. Then Mom found a swollen area on me yesterday. It could be chalked up to me being "excited" or the itching, but then she found another swollen area...left side of my anus. The same place as my sister Farrah had hers. This is freaking Mom out...big time. They are going to try and get me into the doctor today. Please pray and hope that good news comes back and that it's something simple and treatable. I don't want to think of what would happen if it came back bad.
Yes, I am admitting it.....I'm Bad!! BMAO I do have a bad side to me and Mom thought that this song just suits me. I'm actually trying to be good, but I just love mischief! I love getting into trouble...like the garbage. I can open up the garbage can and pull stuff out of it. I tear up things so fast that my humans don't even realize it until they find pieces of paper, cardboard boxes, etc., lying around the apartment. BOL
I also know that is has been a long time since we have been on here, but we are back...even though it still may be part-time for now, but we are back. I've got some news for you!
Mom has gotten her Bachelors of Science degree in Criminal Justice - Crime Scene Investigation, but she can't work in the field because of her health. She also has her Masters of Science in Higher Education - College Teaching and Learning and is looking for an online teaching position. She is also trying to get into Western Governors University for her Post-Bac in Elementary Education Teaching K-8. She wants to teach K-2. Her start date will be in April, provided her former college sends over her transcripts. That is all that Mom and WGU are waiting on now. Once those transcripts arrive, them Mom can do her Intake Interview and may have to take a couple of courses before starting her program, but that would have to be at another college, because WGU doesn't do that. Then she has to take the Education Without Borders class, then she would start her main program. It is most likely going to take her a couple of more years to do that.
We are also looking to move to Hamburg, NY because my other Mom is not only working full-time at a local hospital, but she is attending Hilbert College and the drive from Grand Island is a looooong one. Moving closer to the college would save on gas and maybe even lower rent some, since they are paying a lot now. Plus, with my other Mom and having torn her ACL about a year ago...maybe longer (Mom can't remember)...the stairs are not good idea for Mom2. bol Going up and down them is tough.
Mom has her own pain issues as well, so a one level apartment would be a better option for all of us...including Jack....who is still 27 pounds. bol They are working on him and getting him to lose weight.
Anyway, that is everything that I can think of...that has happened lately. BOL If I forgot anything I'm sure Mom will update this. BOL
