We all know that Bob can build it, but did you know that Nala could paint it? Yes she can!
Not really, but she can supervise, and for a #diva that’s really the job you want! Until you pass out from boredom, that is!
The backstory on my largest rescue pooch, Nala. This big momma is 114lbs. She’s an #alaskanmalamute even though she looks like a shepherd mix. Yes I’m sure, because I’ve had her since she was itty bitty and I saw her mom and dad. She changed A LOT as she grew up. She was red and white! And she has the most beautiful honey colored eyes. Anyhow, Nala came from a “breeder” in South Carolina, she was the only puppy left from her litter to survive whatever mystery illness they had. I say mystery simply because the “breeders” didn’t take the puppies to the vet for care🤦♀️ Nala is big and goofy and the woman in charge! But she’s also my million dollar genetic nightmare. She has food, seasonal AND environmental allergies. She gets chronic ear infections and routinely gets hot spots whenever the seasons change. She has small, malformed kidneys that are surrounded by fluid for an unknown reason, hip dysplasia, cloudy fat deposits on her right eye, and to top it off, she has a death wish. I say that jokingly, but in all seriousness, she thinks she’s a cat with 9 lives. She has eaten a bottle of aspirin, a bag of chocolate, fallen down the deck stairs in a hurry to see the deer outside, eaten Vectra flea/tick prevention, eaten through drywall and ate a nightlight, she has been bitten in the face by a venomous Copperhead snake twice (same snake, one incident) because she was curious and apparently one bite wasn’t enough. She lives life at full speed, that’s for sure. She doesn’t know that one day her hips will be so bad that she’ll need a replacement, or that she’s more likely than not to have early onset kidney disease. And I’m not telling her😉
