Ruff-ruff…. We promised our son when we moved back to America we would get him a dog. Well, here we are almost two years later, and I have some time to dig into my hard drive and share some photos on this blog of our little dog Honey, that we adopted almost two years ago. She once was a boonie dog here on Guam. This crazy, loving and hilarious mutt joined our family in July of 2014. Since, Guam is a US territory we followed through with our promise to our son and got him a dog.
We are getting ready to move off island in a few short weeks. I had hoped to blog more about our life while living on Guam and I may finally get to it at some point. I haven’t been able to keep up with the speed our life is cruising on. Today, I am taking a moment to share about our Honey girl that is from Guam.
We were told that our spotted little mutt is a terrier of sorts. The ladies at her vet clinic say, she is part Maltese and Shitzu. Whatever she is mixed with, is a perfect combination. When we adopted her they thought she was two years old and that she had already had a litter of puppies. She was found living on the streets so no one knows for sure her age or what she’d been through.
Now she is almost four and is still the fun, feisty and super lazy dog we’ve fallen in love with.
We’ve given her so many bones and she’s buried them with her imaginary dirt in corners of the room, behind the curtains, in the couch cushions, on a blanket or under the bed. It was fun locating all her bones in the house before shipping our stuff to California.
She sleeps in the craziest positions and gets super jealous if you snuggle with anyone but her. She’s a flopper. You can’t pet her back without her rolling over to have her belly rubbed. She’ll lick your hand until you do it. She’s a bit bossy and very territorial.
Besides the Guam beer buckets, Honey’s the only thing Made in Guam we are physically taking away from this island life. I’d say she was the best purchase we’ve made while living abroad the past six years!
