This morning I woke up pretty early, thanks to my little inner alarm clock! I laid in bed for a little while enjoying every little kick. When I finally made my way downstairs a made a quick breakfast while planning my boot camp class.
I will share the workout with you guys tomorrow. After boot camp I headed to GPP to teach my kids class. I only have one more week of kids class. I am going to miss those kids, they have been so fun to coach this summer!
Following kids class I stayed and did part of the GPP workout and spent some time on the spin bike. I had a lunch date with some friends afterwards to celebrate one of their birthdays. We went to our go to lunch spot!
Plates and Palates!
I got my normal shrimp and spinach salad but subbed chicken instead of the shrimp.
Okay, are you all ready for a crazy story!!?
Aspen was a Christmas gift when I was a Junior in High School (11 years ago), My sisters and I were so excited to have a dog. She lived at my dads house until my youngest sister got married then she took her with her. My sister ended up having to give her away when she moved into her apartments. She gave her to a nice family who were really good about letting her come visit and take her on trips etc.
One day they texted my sister and told her that Aspen had been hit by a car and suffered and had passed away. We were all really sad to hear the news.
Then yesterday, my dad received a phone call from a girl yesterday saying she had his dog. (We had a chip put in Aspen during the time we had her.) My dad replied by asking if it was their current dog “Bella.” She said “No, Aspen” and he told her that she had died two years ago. She said “ No, She is very much alive!”
My dad called my sister and told her what had happened and she went straight out to pick her up.
Sure enough, it was Aspen!
The girl that had her was having to give away Aspen and just took her to the shelter, the shelter scanned her and told her that dog had a different owner and that is when she had contacted my dad.
My sister Jessica asked her where she had gotten Aspen from and she said that she adopted her from a man who rehabilitated dogs a year ago.
We have no idea how or why Aspen got there or why the family had lied to us, Jessica had tried to contact them but the number had been changed so we may not ever know the whole story, but my sister and the rest of us are so happy she is back. Jessica now is keeping her at her home.
I think my nephew is pretty happy about it too!
Do you have a dog/family pet?
