The Goal: to take and post at least one picture each day for the entire year that I'm 27.

I find that I rush through the day, to rush through the week, to get to the weekend...just to find that an entire year goes by in the blink of an eye. So, on the eve of my last day as a 26 year old I decided to make a change. I challenged myself to take the time each day and find at least one moment worth remembering, hoping that in this way I will learn to live each day for what it is. For regardless of how uniform the days may feel at a glace each one is truly unique and worth cherishing.

Day 168 - Saturday, Bloody Saturday

This post is pretty sorry if the images are too macabre...I just had to honor Wes' bravery

My boy Wes is the bravest pup ever
He has had the wind knocked out of him twice while jumping off objects that were over 4 feet tall
He has spent a night in an animal hospital after getting a dehydrating disease
(They had to give him an iv and pump him full of fluids to keep him alive)
He spent a couple weeks not walking after tearing all of the soft pads off his paws on a hot stone patio
He was born with weak back teeth and they split down past his they were pulled out
And now he is out gap tooth puppy...and can't chew bones any more

And tonight while getting his nails clipped he sneezed and cause a massive cut that bled, and bled, and bled
We tried several home remedies to help the blood clot (like flour)
And even tried to make our own puppy foot bandage (he kicked it off twice)
The boy is so active it's hard to keep him still long enough to get the bleeding to stop
Even while hurt all Wes wanted to do is play with his red ball
But after a few hours of flour, bandaged, and forced sleeping I think we have the bleeding under control
Hopefully this will be the last of Wes' many injuries...because it breaks my heart having him hurt!
