It Is Well.

Just a couple photos of Huckleberry...
I love this goofy, crazy pup and am so glad he is a part of our little family! 
Although I do wish he could come to New York with us for the wedding, I know he'll be in good hands..
Every Wednesday we take Huckleberry to doggie daycare. It's a 6 acre, completely fenced in farm. 
The lady who runs the place actually does it right out of her own home. There are plenty of doggie beds, drinking fountains, chewable toys, and yummy treats for Huck and his furry friends to keep them busy for hours! She even has a designated digging area -basically just a huge sand pit- for the dogs! He is so excited in the morning when I tell him we're going for a car ride...he knows the routine, and to doggie daycare we go!
When we pick him up in the evenings he is completely worn out! And a tired dog is a good dog..
We know that while he's there he is in great hands. I am sent pictures via email throughout the day of Huck playing with the other pups! Always accompanied with the cutest captions! Seriously, it's the perfect place for a crazy, worrisome dog owner like me to send their fur baby. I don't have even the slightest concern while he's there. 
Originally, Huck was going to stay at a family friend's while Steven and I were away for the wedding...
but then things fell through, the couple could no longer take him. I was DEVASTATED. Daycare is not cheap...overnight boarding is even more outrageous...and since we'd been expecting him to stay with these friends free of charge, we did not budget for him to be boarded...
We told Maryellen, the lady who runs the daycare, our situation. And {just like every other complication in my path this past year} God completely worked everything out. Maryellen offered to take Huck in for the entire 12 days we are going to be gone for a ridiculously discounted price. She said it was her wedding present to us. And then, after I forwarded on this information to Steven and my family, my brother's offered to pay the remaining boarding costs as a wedding present to us! :) Seriously, we are so stinkin' blessed!

I love my family, my friends, my fianc√©, and my pup! 
{Quite a turnaround from yesterday's mood, eh?}

Happy Wednesday! Two more work days till two weeks of vacation!
Ahhh, Freedom, you are going to feel so good :)

So cute! I have been looking up doggy daycare places in Seattle and I found this dogvacay.com site that lets you pick what family and house the dog goes to and they are all certified and checked, etc. Where is this boarding that you take Huck? How much does she usually charge for overnight boarding?

I always love pictures of Huck! I'd imagine that 12 days is a long time to be away from his sweet face. Fortunately you'll be busy celebrating!

What a wonderful post. I guess there are still good people out there. I'm glad Huck's care isn't a burden for you anymore and you're right: God is good!

That is amazing! We take our little pup to daycare two or three times a week, and it's such a relief to know she's in good hands and having the time of her life. What a super sweet lady to give you such a wonderful "gift"!

That is so awesome that it worked out so well! It is one less tress of your wedding! I am glad things have turned around for you!
