We are a married couple who adopted our little Russky, Nikita {aka Nicky, Nicky noodle, little man, Nikoli, the Nickster, crazy dude, goofball, puppy love, etc...you get the picture!} from St Petersburg, Russia four years ago. Join us as we stumble through the joys and perils of parenthood, while our son teaches us a few things along the road...


Blitzer Joe

today we unexpectedly lost a member of our family...blitzer/blitzer joe/spots/blitzer the wonder dog/joe joe the crazy clown dog/sir humps-a-lot/blitzy/bitsir/blister/etc.  blitzer was kris's dog before we met, but it didn't take long for him to bury himself deep in my heart and soul.  taking him to the vet the final time was about the hardest thing i've ever had to do.  there doesn't seem to be an end to my tears.  i'm only thankful for the fact that nicky seems to be taking it pretty well.
here are a few (ok...a lot...i heart that dog!) of our favorite blitzer pictures in no particular order...

and to think...nicky screamed & hollered at the first sight of blitzer, never having been this close to
a dog
nick "walking" blitzer {he was so sweet &
tolerant of the russky's shenanigans}

resting his weary head...dogs are people too!

blitzer the wonder dog {told ya he was tolerant!} 
i'm pretty sure the look on blitzy's face accurately conveys his thoughts about this situation!

such a ruff life    

no matter how much nick pestered him, blitzer never held it against him

if you look closely, ollie is "holding" blitzer's paw.  i find it extremely sweet especially considering this was 3 days before blitzer left us.

rip buddy.  we love you more than words, and miss you so unbearably much.  we hope you're getting all the treats, smarties candies, and pizza crust up in heaven that a spotted wonder dog can handle!
