This popped up in my favebook memories from a year ago; it was one of the greatest trips ever. Nova and I secretly drove up 1200 miles over two days to surprise my sister during a time where chemo was starting to become pretty hard on the family. Nova was the star of the show and brought smiles to everyone.
Ben and I don’t have kids, but Nova did not hesitate in adopting my niece and nephew immediately. Her and Gabriel developed a dinnertime “agreement” and she displayed a quiet but very serious protective instinct over Greta to a perceived stranger. The kids loved her; they inspected her ears, pulled up her lips to see her teeth, ran their sticky hands through her fur, and stuck their little fingers in her nostrils and she didn’t bat an eye. I’ve never been more proud of her. #bowsonthebutt#sowhat#teamashley#screwyoucancer#pink#puppylove#kidsanddogs#shilohshepherd#instagramdogs
