A Not So Happy 4Th Of July

0

Hey everyone, I see it’s been awhile since I posted. Sorry! I have had a rough few months with my dog…he actually lived longer than expected and was doing really good until probably the last 2-3 days. Once I noticed he was having more bad days than good I knew it was time to say good-bye. I have been dreading this day since I found out he had lymphoma. Buzz and I have had to do this 4 times before, but that doesn’t make it any easier. Neo was the hardest yet, the others had no choice, they were in a lot of pain and dying. Neo had his good moments, not days. Dogs (maybe cats too) mask their pain. They want to always make us happy so we have to see through that and realize when it’s time to let go. I knew something was wrong with him before I even found out he was sick. I saw his eyes change. He told me without obviously “telling me.” Neo and I had a rare connection. He only liked a handful of people and didn’t like other dogs. The only dogs he liked were the 3 that he grew up with as a puppy. He was my protector…always at my feet ready to fight off anyone that might hurt me. I miss him so much, it’s really hard typing this right with the tears pouring down my face. BUT I do it because it makes me feel better and hearing from you all makes it hurt a little less. Hearing your stories and just telling me how sorry you are makes a world of difference…so THANKS so much for all the kind messages. You don’t realize how much it means to me.

Buzz and I took him to the park yesterday afternoon and he enjoyed some chicken nuggets, he didn’t want the ice cream. He just sat and watched all the kids play. He was panting pretty hard so I knew he was not comfortable. The pain meds and steroids can only last so long.

Yesterday was probably one of the hardest days of my life, but I stayed strong for Neo. He is very sensitive to my feelings. I talked to him through the entire thing …told him what a good boy he was and how much I loved him. Once he passed, I lost it. I held him and cried many many tears. I felt better knowing his pain was gone. I really believe there is a special place for our beloved pets after they leave this world. I imagine him running and playing with my other dogs, he is the last of the 4 that grew up together.

Neo was 12 years old so I feel blessed that I had that long with him. Of course it’s never long enough. Just remember to enjoy life every day because in an instant everything can change. I am thinking of all his happy memories right now. I went through a bunch of photos and I wanted to share some with you. If you know me…you know I take a million pics of my dogs and cat.

I will be getting his ashes back and will be taking them to Arizona on our next trip. I still have Josie’s, she died from lymphoma as well back in 2012. I have spread my other two dogs, but didn’t find the right place or time to do that with hers. Now I know why…I was waiting for Neo’s so I can spread them together. They were best friends. When she died back in 2012 Neo changed a bit. He was never the same dog after her passing.

I have been through this before and I know the only thing that helps is TIME! I know he is gone physically, but he will live in my heart forever!!! RIP my little angel…mamma loves you.

Here are some pics I want to share. Neo loved camping, playing ball, riding and most of all swimming! He was the best swimmer! 🙂 I hope you all have a safe and fun 4th!

Kisses,
Rach

Hello June!

Good afternoon!! I hope everyone reading this is having a great day so far!! 🙂 🙂 Not too much excitement going on in my life at the moment. I am staying close to home because I don’t want to leave my dog for too long. He is still doing good, not great, not terrible…he has his good days/bad days. I am just trying to keep him as comfortable as possible. I can’t stand to see my pets (or any animals) in pain or suffering!! Ugh! Just dealing with him on a daily basis.

I have been enjoying the beautiful weather here in CA. Wow, it is amazing! I do miss Arizona, but not in the summer. hehe! It’s pretty cool being able to hike and walk my dog in June. 🙂 I even have my windows open for a few hours in the morning. I tried swimming the other day and that didn’t work. The water is SOOOO cold, I dipped my toes and then ended up in the hot tub. ha! 😉

Buzz and I did make it out to Hollywood with a friend for some food and drinks. Found a few pretty cool bars/restaurants. It is so much fun people watching there. 😉

I wish I had all sorts of cool stuff to post today, but I don’t. The main thing in my life right now is taking care of my fur baby. I will keep in touch and write more soon.

Kisses,
Rach

Lots Of New Content At Aziani =)

Good afternoon everyone! I hope you are enjoying your week so far! 🙂 Mine is good…keeping busy. The weather here in CA is amazing…lots of sunshine and cool temps. It’s only 66 degrees at 1:00. Sooooo nice! My dog is doing great so far so that of course makes me smile! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Every day with him is a blessing …love him so much. I bought him a cactus stuffed animal the other day and he loves it. hehe! It made me think of Arizona so I had to buy it. I think of Arizona often…living there for over 20 years it’s kind of hard not to. Plus all my family is there. I am planning to go back for Christmas this year, but I hope I can go before that. I don’t really want to go over the summer. Ugh! Buzz and I will be moving soon so I will invite them to come out to visit us. 🙂

I was at the gym a few days ago and saw Steve Howey, do you know who that is? He is Kevin on Shameless…I love that show! I am not one to be star struck…honestly I could care less about actors… but he seems like a cool guy. They are making a movie a few streets down from where I live so the streets are all restricted and TONS of people and cars every where. I wonder what movie they are filming?

I wanted to let you all know about the new content on Aziani Buzz and the guys have been shooting all sorts of NEW sexy stuff…of course they are still shooting the beautiful solo scenes that you all love, but adding some “harder” stuff that the members ask for. We aim to please! 😉 A lot of girl/girl hot sex, a massage, a Boy/Girl/Girl and a Blowbang so far! So if you want to suggest something please do! Let us know what you like! 😉 It’s so much easier shooting here in CA…all the guys and girls are here. Well not all… but a lot! 😉 Life is easier when it comes to certain things and definitely harder when it comes to others. Kind of balances out…doesn’t it? I guess it just depends what’s most important…prioritize. Priorities always change…what seems important right now might not be in the near future. AND the other way around too. This thing called “life” is so very interesting!

Lunch time for me…I will write more soon!!
Kisses,
Rach

Big Bear Fun :)

Good morning everyone! I can’t believe we are on month 5 of 2018…almost half way there! Wow! Do you ever wish you could freeze time? I do! It goes so fast…too fast!! We just got back from a road trip with my doggie. 🙂 He had so much fun…you would never know he is sick. We all had a great time in the mountains…the fresh air, cooler temps and an overall feeling of peace. I started feeling stressed the minute we got back in the city with all these people and traffic. YUK! I need my mountain home/cabin sooner than I thought. I am getting anxious! I am already trying to plan our next camping trip. I think we will take my dog to the beach and camp out, I think he would like that. 🙂 It’s all about him right now.

I honestly haven’t had a lot going on… just my “normal” stuff. Buzz and I did go to a friends art show a few weeks ago…that was pretty cool. 😉

I talked to my mom the other day and she told me how AZ is heating up in the 100’s. Yes it’s that time of the year that I will not miss. hehe! No seriously…I would say July, Aug and Sept are pretty miserable, but the rest of the year is pretty awesome. The weather here is great! It goes from the 80’s to 70’s to 60’s. It’s not as consistent as AZ. I only have to turn on my a/c for a few hours in the afternoon. I won’t miss those huge electric bills. lol! However everything in CA is so expensive, it’s crazzzzzy!

Buzz and the guys been shooting lots of new and interesting content lately…it’s all for Aziani.com Be sure to check it out!! 😉 Two days last week they shot a bunch of girl/girl content which I know the members will love. I went to the shoot one day…it was nice hanging out with the models. 😉 It brought back a lot of memories when Buzz and I would travel to CA to shoot. Fun times for sure!

I am off now, since I took a few days off I have some things to catch up on. I will write more soon. Here are some pics I wanted to share!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Kisses,
Rach

Here we go again…. Ugh

neo

Hey everyone….happy Friday!! I hope you all enjoy your weekend! I have been a little out of it lately, we found out one of my dogs has lymphoma. Ugh! Here we go again, Josie died from it at the exact same age. Seriously sucks!!! 🙁 Everyone is telling me how he has had a great 12 years of life and I know that, but that doesn’t make it any easier. They just don’t live long enough. It does help talking about it though, I am not one to bottle up my feelings. So thanks for listening to me talk about this. It’s really hard…my pets are my babies. Losing one of them is like losing family to me. With this type of thing we just go day by day. I will make sure to keep him happy and in no pain. When he is in pain, I am in pain. I won’t have that. Send prayers and positive thoughts our way please! 🙂 🙂

I don’t want to be a total downer today so let’s move on to other things. I will say that I have been getting out more and enjoying what CA has to offer. We found some new trails right by our house which is awesome. The views are amazing!! You can see downtown LA on one side and I think Santa Monica on the other, not really sure what city it is ..but it’s the beautiful ocean. I will have to take my binoculars next hike. It’s so different hiking here than in AZ. It is gorgeous, but I think the AZ desert is gorgeous too. I know some people can’t see beauty in the desert…but it is alive and amazing as well. I know the cactus look mean and usually are..lol, but just something about the desert that I love. Maybe it’s because I am a Scorpio. hehe! The green rolling hills and mountains here in CA are so pretty too. I guess I just love nature in general. Beauty is all around us…you just have to stop and appreciate it. Life is too damn short!

I have been going to the gym regularly again…woohoo! It really does make me feel better overall and gives me more energy. Hey I will be 50 in November…honestly it seems unreal. Where does the time go???

I have been working a lot and playing a bit too. Met friends for a nice dinner one night and also met up with a group of friends for drinks at a super cool restaurant in Calabasas. It’s so nice sitting outside and listening to live music, my kind of music. 🙂 Fun times!

No trips or vacations planned anytime soon, I need to take care of my baby boy. He comes first!! 🙂

I am off now …I have a busy Friday. Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

Kisses,
Rach

Where does the time go?????

Good morning!! I am FINALLY getting around to my blog. I am soooooo bad. 🙁 I guess things change and priorities shift in our lives. Nothing really ever stays the same. I am keeping busy so that is only excuse I have for not posting more. I do try to keep up on twitter as much as I can. That is the only social media I have, btw. I do not have Facebook, Instagram, SnapChat…blah blah blah. So many …it’s crazy. I don’t know how people have time to post to them all. Must be nice to have all that extra time. Haha! 😉

I can’t believe it’s April!! It has been raining a lot in Ca, which I like. It’s a good change from Arizona. I have my office window open right now loving the cool breeze. I can’t say California has grown on me yet, but I am working on it. I did tour a winery recently and that was fun!! Lots of wine tasting and enjoying the beautiful scenery. 🙂 🙂 🙂

I have started getting into my “normal” routine lately and that feels nice. Mediation, exercise and eating healthier has made me feel awesome! Things haven’t been quite normal since the move until recently. Yay! 😉 Moving is just hard… especially to another state.

I hope you are all getting your taxes done, the clock is ticking. I have mine done, but I always wait until the last minute to pay them. I like to hold on to my money for as long as I can. hehe! 😉

I actually ventured out yesterday and went shopping. Omg, I just don’t like to shop anymore. I NEVER thought I would say that. See things do change. Amazon is my friend …and a few stores online. It’s just so much easier!! No traffic or crowds!! Goodies delivered to my door, it’s like Christmas every day. hehe! Well not every day, but a lot!

Everything is starting to bloom, I love this time of the year. In Arizona I had allergies that would be kicking in by now, luckily nothing yet. I am hoping I won’t have allergies here. 🙂 Summer will be here soon…I am ready to have some pool parties and cook outs.

Of course we will be moving again once our lease is up. Oh joy! It won’t be anything like the last move obviously, but still moving just sucks. I will say that not owning a house is a nice stress release. We have been homeowners since 1999 and don’t get me wrong, having a home is nice, but I love the fact that Buzz and I can move anywhere anytime we want without the burden of selling a house. I have no clue when or where we will settle down next. We talk about a lot of different places, it just depends on business. Of course I am still waiting for my cabin in the mountains. Buzz is waiting for his beach house in Mexico. Ha, seems like we are on different pages. LOL 😉

I am off now…lots to do! I hope you all have a great day! I will write more soon…here are some pics that I wanted to share.

Kisses,
Rach
