I am sitting on my sister’s high school bean bag. Yaku, one of our new pups, is curled up behind my neck sleeping, while Yana, our other puppy, sleeps on my chest – we have two exhausted dogs. Our last few days have been hectic, but we have finally made it to our home for the next one or two years – Zuleta. Yesterday, we traveled from Quito to Zuleta – after having a wonderful Carnaval holiday with my mom and sister. The trip was for the most part uneventful, with the exception of Yana’s general dislike of car rides. After a long day of packing and driving, the pups slept the whole night. Jax and I worked until midnight and slept the rest of the night. Today, we had one goal in mind, finding a place to live. My dad and his wife, Car, were incredibly helpful with this and proposed a couple of places, all of which were great but one that won our heart.
Before lunch we took the pups to an extremely nice vet in Ibarra to get them vaccine shots and a check-up. The doctor fell in love with them and informed us that they are in very good health and that he thinks there dad is a Husky – we’re not too sure about that. As the sunset came, Jax and I worked on measuring our potential new home while Yana and Yaku spent an afternoon playing with my brothers.
