So, beyond the fact that Ive just seriously neglected this blog as the past few months have been unreasonably busy, I have also neglected to mention that I got a dog! Her name is Ee-mah (when I got her, her name was "Mama" and so, to represent a more hopeful future, I changed it but not dramatically. "Ee-mah" means "mother" in Hebrew) and I couldnt possibly love her more. Shes an American Staffordshire Terrier and possibly the sweetest dog you could ever meet. AmStaffs are between Pitbulls and Bulldogs - technically what Bulldogs looked like when they were pure bred and now considered the Show Pit - and like most Terriers, she has had a terrible past. Whoever had her in their care before me used her only as a puppy mill, breeding her the moment she went into heat and so, at just under a year old, she has long since had puppies, nursed them, and been dumped at a kill shelter. As fate would have it, mere days into her stay at the Foster Shelter, I came to pick out a dog and when we met it was love at first sight. I could honestly gush for the rest of eternity but instead Ill just prove how gorgeous she is (honestly, people stop me in the street, its kind of really fun).
