Due to social distancing, it is our responsibility to stay away from others and spend more time inside. Although some of us are taking this negatively, one population benefiting from this time are our fur friends! My beloved husky-golden retriever mix, Juneau, is really enjoying all of Mommy’s time at home. Because I have had the time to work from home and do all of my classes online Juneau and I have been partaking in her favorite activity … walking! So over the past two weeks, we have averaged about 5 miles a day and some days up to 8 miles if the weather allows. Juneau and I have also had our fair share of photo shoots, See below a slideshow of all the nice photos we have gotten to take together.
** This has allowed Juneau to really amp up her Instagram feed (follow @june.bug911 – you will not regret it).
In addition to Juneau benefiting from myself being home, this process has been very reciprocated. I can say with my whole heart I would be going insane if I didn’t have Juneau with me at my apartment. My roommates have gone home with their families and my family is all spread across the country so It has just been Juneau and I chilling in the apartment. Spending so much time together has allowed me to observe Juneau more and gauge her reactions when I talk to her like she is a human (okay maybe I am going a little insane.) Our bond has deepened tremendously.
