#HappyBirthday
Happy 5th Birthday to my heart dog!
I can’t even believe 5 years have gone by already. I don’t know where I’d be without you in my life and am so blessed to have you.
You continue to drive me to chase my dreams, seek happiness and look at the world with a new positive perspective.
I love you more than words bubba.
We unfortunately weren’t able to take any exciting birthday photos due to a whole lot of rain blowing in. If you want to see the gifts Kyro for this year you can see them on my personal account @goldllocks! He was super thrilled to receive new toys, treats and cookies.
We’re heading up to the mountains this weekend with @wanderousshepherds to play in the snow. That’ll be a big birthday surprise for Kyro!

#PawPrints
Foot prints in the sand may only last until a waves washes them away... but the memories made will last a lifetime.

#EducationPost
This weeks topic: socialization.
Socialization is one of the most important things to work on with your puppy. Being socialized can help prevent a wide variety of behavioral problems such as: other animal aggression, fear of people, discomfort in new places, etc.
Tips for socializing:
Be aware- you will be the best person to be able to judge your puppies comfort zones. You want every experience to be as positive as possible to reinforce good behavior and comfort during new introductions. Watching your puppies body language to understand when something is too much, they need slower introductions, or they’ve had enough is extremely important.
Be confident- you are the one your puppy looks up to during new situations. If you allow yourself to feel anxious, nervous or uncomfortable... those emotions will impact how your puppy does. Feeling confident in the situation will translate over to your pup. If you are feeling uncomfortable it’s best you leave it and possibly return another time, or arrange the situation differently.
Set up play dates— with both people and animals is important. Communicating with friends, family and strangers on how to properly approach your puppy (give treats) can really benefit how the interactions go. If you can associate each new meeting and return meeting as something positive and exciting that will stick. Arranging play dates with others dogs is beneficial as well. Meeting a variety of dogs of all sizes and temperaments helps your pup understand various dog behavior and feel comfortable with others pups. I suggest arranging play dates in your backyard and giving the dogs ample time to get comfortable. Puppies are highly susceptible to parvo and other viruses, so it’s important to avoid high traffic dog parks until they are fully vaccinated.
Visit dog friendly locations- pet stores and dog friendly cafes are another excellent way to meet new people, experience new places and meet other animals.
What I can’t stress enough is BE AWARE of your puppies limit. This period of time is for developing their behaviorisms and you want to do your best to make each one positive.

Every action we take, or do in our lives has some sort of consequence or reaction.

#WinterCoat
Kyro’s super poofy winter coat is slowly starting to come in again. His chest turns into a thick fluff of fur.

Sometimes stopping to appreciate the things you normally would walk right by... gives you a new perspective on day to day life.

#FirstPumpkin
Gave Dovah his very first pumpkin to play with since it’s October!
He was thoroughly entertained with chewing on it and dragging it around the yard making happy puppy noises.
Hour later and he’s sound asleep from roughhousing with it.

#ChangingSeasons
The time of year where you can see fall colors and snow beginning to dust the mountain peaks.
Such a beautiful contrast.

#ThrowBackThursday
The year Kyro got to fulfill his dream of being the Pumpkin King.
Note: while the costume is real, the make-up is 100% photoshopped.

#JustBreath
It’s essential to take moments throughout life where you inhale deeply- think of everything currently weighing you down.... and exhale it all.
Only truly important things should remain and the rest should be released. You can only handle so much at a time.

#SunriseHaze
Due to the increase of damage, irresponsibility and overall lack of care in our National parks/trails/outdoors I have opted to no longer location tag my images.
If you are interested in knowing where a picture was taken- you’re welcome to direct message me.

#Autumn
Fall has always been such a special time for me.
There’s just such a feeling of happiness, magic and warmth that comes around this time of year.
It’s hard not to let those feelings touch your soul and bring a smile to your face.
