Some Sad News

Hello Josh & Vicki Fans! We hope that you are all doing well.

This is just a brief quick up-date... we had a sad incident happen Sunday night, our dog Diamond past away. It was really hard for both Josh and I. Even though we hadn't known her for very long we got really attached to both dogs. We are watching Snickers closely and allowing him in the house now. We are trying to train him to be an indoor/outdoor dog. In a few weeks we will see where he is at and if we feel that he is still really lonely, then we will probably get him a buddy. The past two nights he has been crying at night... and he has figured out which window is ours because now he sits there and cries.

Anyway, besides this really sad event, things are going extremely well. Yesterday Josh bought our first moto, he LOVES it. Today we were sitting outside with Snickers and Josh went over to his bike and just sat on it. He then asked me, "do you want to go for a ride around the block?" even though it was sprinkling and about to rain really hard... silly guy :)

Alright, I have to go but will report more later!

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about your dog. Was she sick or was it an unexpected accident? Poor Snickers, crying all night. How long had they been together?

I just have to say one thing about your ride around the block on your new moto...do you have any hills that you would have to push Josh up if, God forbid, it breaks down? hahahahahah, j/k :-)

So sorry to hear about Diamond. Hopefully Snickers will recover and you can train her to be an indoor/outdoor dog. Glad things are going well otherwise. We are praying for you guys.

Diamond was really old... around 11 getting close to 12 years old. So it was her time. Diamond was Snickers mom, he had been with her his whole life. The GREAT news is, that Snickers didn't cry at all last night. Also, today was the first day that he sat down in the house and just relaxed. Typically, when he is in the house, he is so anxious - for obvious reasons b/c it is totally unfamiliar, but it's so great that he is beginning to feel comfortable! YEAH!

As far as hills... we are on a level street... block actually... so if something should happen. he can walk it home himself :) haha

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers!
