T O - G E T - H E R

My family is strange. Let's start at that. 

I am the head of the family. Haha. I wish. My bunny Mango is the main leader of the pack and we are all not so secretly afraid of him and obey his will. Then it is Nejc and me and Thor and Orca. We are what my grandparents would call a hipster kind of family, those damn youngsters, practically the generation that elders hate on. We consider Mango, Thor and Orca as family members and sometimes even go as far as calling them babies. Not intending to make them equal or more to human babies, but to us they are. And when I call them babies, people think I am talking about my kids. Oh well. 

The point is Thor and Orca aren't just family dogs. They are family members. They are never below us, the only difference between us is that they kinda have to obey us (like I have to obey my mother). When we were looking for Orca (Thor too) we did never think we are buying just a dog. For me it was getting a puppy that will spend all the time with me. Someone that will go on long walks with me, train agility with me, play frisbee, watch movies with me, let me be her cuddle buddy, camp and hike the mountains together, be my sous-chef, go to seaside with me and swim the ocean and explore countries with me. My partner in crimes. My best friend. Soulmate. You get the point. I wasn't just searching for someone that will greet me with a wagging tail when I get home from college. I didn't seek for just a dog. 

I guess that they mean more to me. Let me rephrase that. They mean everything to me. They are family.

There is nothing I wouldn't do for them. And they are so loved, beyond words. It is so unimaginable to me that anyone would get ''rid of'' their pets. Like I can't imagine that ever. I was talking with friends about that a few days back about how many people adopt a dog and return it or give them for adoption or anything like that. Even if my dogs were complete BRATS (they are really not, well haha, Thor is really annoying with his farting and burping and Orca screams higher than Tasmanian devil and Mango is a beast), I can't see that e v e r happening. No matter the situation. I work so my dogs can have better lives. Because they saved me in so many ways and no matter how hardI try I will never give them as much as they give me everyday. I can just hope I give them the best life possible.

And I know people think I am overly dramatic and protective and annoying. I know many of you think that, I realise that. And I guess you look at me the same way as I look at people that have profile picture with their John Deer tractor on Facebook. Joke aside, I guess my point is: you have to take me as I am. My dogs mean everything to me and if you invite me to get coffee and expect me to come without them, well, I am not a friend for you. And if you think I will cancel my playtime with them to hangout with you... it is not happening. You are invited to join our playtime. I am the happiest when they are with me. And I know there is always that one annoying friend that will ask me ''if you could choose between your boyfriend or your dogs, who would you chose???'' Let me tell you first of all you are an idiot. I am not choosing. We are all a part of a family. I don't need anything else as long as we are all together.

My life mission is to give them a life they deserve and if that means training all the time or cuddling all the time, I don't mind doing either of those things. I prefer the good old middle with a big sprinkle of adventures, but I am adaptable. My dogs are so spoilt. I love it. But that is us - together. A crazy family. No one is more important and dogs are super spoilt and nice. We will forever be family.

Just adding this up real quick: 
The most ridiculous questions ever are
''Would you give your dogs away if you ever got pregnant and have human babies?''
''Would you give your dogs away if you all of a sudden got allergies?''
''Would you give your dogs away if you would move away?''
and similar questions. NO, what the heck. Them > everything! Forever & ever!

My favourite quote is If you ever leave me I am coming with you.

Cap? Ou pas cap?

Cap? Ou pas cap?

The best way to do something is just to do it now. I tell this myself every day ten times a day if I have to. I am your typical adventure babe that will go crazy if being at home for too long. Don't need fancy gifts, don't want your money, I just want a partner in adventure crimes. Someone who will pack things in 5 minutes and take me somewhere. Doesn't even have to be far or expensive.

This was taken by my number 1 favourite place in my home town. So many childhood memories from this place and I still spend almost every day here when I am almost 23! Nothing changes.
But if we go back to my first thought. The best way to do something is just to do it now. At this very second. I think about this advice I made up a lot and most of the times I get the idea to go out of my Mengeš house and just go somewhere. With a car. By walking. With the dogs. Doesn't matter as long as it is right now and I know I will remember this moment forever, even when I will be 90 and my dementia will kick in.

The worst thing in my opinion is to miss out on the days that could be wonderful. I want to grow up with zero regrets and tell my dog children that I did so many crazy things and I've seen so many beautiful places and met funny people and helped in any way I could.

I've never looked uglier but I was covered in dirt and was wet from the puddles. Ugly or not, this picture brings so much joy because I remember how dirty everyone was and how much we enjoyed it. Zero care was given that day. Days I live for!
But honestly I get it, I have multiple moods and sometimes going out is the last thing on my mind. There are days I just want to lay in bed and watch GIRLS with Orca or days when I edit pictures 4 hours in a row or when we watch cartoons all night and days when I want to retire from blogging. And then again I remember how much joy it brought into my life and how happy it still makes me feel and how much I got out of it. Adventure is not going out everyday to look for new places. It is sometimes doing what feels right, even if it is nothing ''impressive''.

2018 was amazing! One of the best years of my life. And I promised myself that everyday I will do something I have never done before. Could be big or small. (Okay, I hear myself, I know it sounds dirty!) And so far I am so glad that I decided to do this.

DARE! (Cap!)
Dare to go.
Dare to live the way you want.
Dare to be responsible for your own happiness!
Do what you want.
Stop waiting for something that is never going to happen on itself.

DISCLAIMER: I may or may not be listening to 1D while being over the place inspired and writing nonsense.
