And the New Year has arrived

Spread the love

Good Morning Friends,

How are you and we hope you have all recovered from the holidays and over eating LOL, we have managed to relax in the middle also.

January is a special month for me as it is the month that I ran from Domestic Violence and found my freedom and it is the month that I rescued Layla also, we call it the month we found our freedom.

It has been a long journey, there have been ups and downs like when I lost Baby but whatever the negatives have been I am so happy I did it, saved Baby RIP from the abuse and although life is not perfect today I would rather have this life than what I had.

Rescuing Layla is a bonus, she has given me so much laughter, love and friendship which is things money cannot buy and I am so blessed to wake up to Ms Piss and Vinegar every morning.

Today and the next couple of days are for Layla Christmas Tree heaven as everyone puts their trees out to be picked up so she when going for walks pees on all of them. I often wonder what is going through her mind when doing it as when we visit friends over Christmas we watch the dogs to make sure they do not pee and then overnight they have the freedom to do it whenever they want. They must really think we are nuts.

Many are asking what resolutions we have made for New Year and going to be honest have made none, am going to take each day as it comes, cross every bridge as I get to it and make the best of the year as possible. Of course though the most important is keeping Layla healthy and happy.

So as Layla starts her morning nap we both want to wish everyone again a Happy Healthy 2019.

Woof with love from Layla

  1. Such a great month for you both. Nobody should have to ensure abuse…or lack of a forever home. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop and Happy New Year to you both!

  2. Love and happiness to both you and Layla in 2019. You’re very brave to have fought for your freedom, and I love how much the month of January signifies that for you…so many new beginnings. Sounds like you made some great resolutions!!

    • Thanks Hindy and yes January is a special month as it is also the beginning of a new year. I hope you have a wonderful New Year also

  3. I love reading Layla’s stories! Peeing on Christmas trees sounds like the best way to end the holiday season. We had to baby gate our tree because Dexter kept opening presents!

  4. You are such an inspiration for women in a domestic violence situation. I am so glad you found your way to safety, and even happier that you and Layla found each other. January is also the month Lola and I found each other. And she plans on celebrating! May 2019 bring you much happiness and many blessings.

  5. I think taking every day as it comes is a great resolution, or non resolution! Happy Freedom Month to you and Layla. Mine is August. Hmmm – I just realized Plush’s gotcha day is the end of August too, not the same day but same week 4 years later.

    • Thank you Emilia and it is great to be able to share a freedom month with our pet, am looking forward to your freedom post in August

  6. Very happy for you that you found your freedom away from domestic abuse. I wish you a year filled with much love, laughter, and peace. xx from The Lady Cat and the Chirpies
    We’re glad you’re our furriends

  7. I’m so glad that not only did you and Baby escape your abuser, but you are working so hard to help other people find ways to get out of abusive relationships. You and Layla are a great team and I love reading about your adventures. Happy New Year!

    • Thank you Beth and we have to be the voice for the voiceless as that way there are those that will know they are not alone. Happy New Year

  8. January certainly is a big month for you both…here is to Happy Freedom! (clinking of the glass and dog water bowl)!

    I was pretty sick all through all the holidays, so I am doing a little catching up now on the holiday treats! Not too many around though, since I couldn’t bake.

    I love your “Christmas Tree heaven!” I had to chuckle! You go, Layla! Have a ball christening all those trees!!!

    • I am so sorry you were not well and hope you feeling better, am sure the Five Sibes will forgive you when it comes to baking holiday treats and I know you will make up to them. Layla and the Christmas Tree heaven is so funny as she will not miss out on one tree LOL
