Phoenix; rise again

In order to rise from its own ashes, a phoenix first must burn. The phoenix hope, can wing her way through the desert skies, and still defying fortune’s spite; revive from ashes and rise. Our passions are the true phoenixes; when the old one is burnt out, a new one rises from its ashes. #phoenix #riseagain

Meet Dexter! My new best friend

From my Instagram post: Meet #Dexter my #newbestfriend I’m a total #flightrisk🚀 and I’ve wanted a dog for 20 years and never got one because I knew I wasn’t in a place where I could devote my time and attention into developing my relationship with my dog. The timing is right finally. I’m excited to have a training/adventuring buddy. I want him to be with me always. Where do you wanna go little man? Now I don’t have to worry about encountering a bear when I’m trail running by myself day and night or feel unsafe walking or running along shady streets in dodgy neighbourhoods at night (For example: Pandora at 2am. Really Melissa? #yourenotinKansasanymore. Also? #yourenotinvisible —- When a guy came up to me “Heeey girl…” 😳 I will never do that againi will never do this again*i will never do this again 😬) But I digress…I sent in an application so I hope I get it. 🤞🏻 On 20 acres by the river/exercise adventure buddy. I think I’m a good candidate. @lanamah2000 now Cyrus will have a buddy, another member of his pack. No more separation anxiety. He’ll be able to play and burn off steam and not look sad and depressed if we don’t have time to take him out. Plus I’m stoked to run these two together. They can both carry packs with my water and food. #bestdecisionever

Check out this little clip of Cyrus being ‘Such a good boy’. Soon Cyrus will have a buddy another member of his pack that he can run with.
