Alright, so there were TOO MANY AMAZING ENTERIES FOR THIS OMG, I was not expecting this many people to be interested in my tumblr awards but *ahem* the winners are bolded and the runner ups are italicized, thank you to everyone who entered, I will definitely be doing another one of these in the future :)
5 weeks, 6 authors, and 21 drabbles later, we’ve reached the end of the
round! Thank you so much to the writers for writing drabbles, and to
everyone who read, voted, and commented. Your participation is what
fuels this challenge!
Been thinking about quality over quantity in regards to being a dog owner (dogmanship, if you will). I try to make Luca as much a part of my regular life as possible. I want him to have social excursions, get out of the house, get exercise, see new things. A lot of dog chatter out there suggests that you need to walk your dog a ton, multiple walks a day, to give them the best life. I don’t really agree with this personally, I think that’s a quantitative way to look at things. And I’m all about qualitative. I can’t measure how I make Luca’s life a good one, but I can pay attention and listen to him and build our relationship to infer results that way instead.
On Friday I took Luca to work with me after lunch time. This got him out of the house and into a different environment. He has been to my work a number of times and he knows it fairly well now. A new person started working with us two weeks ago, so he also got the chance to meet someone new. After work, he went with my partner and I to my parents’ house where he got to spend time socialising and playing with his dog friends, Jem and Scout. Saturday he stayed home and we did short training bursts and short play bursts, but for the most part he rested. Sunday morning I took him to the beach very early where he got time off leash to run around and meet new dogs. After his walk, he was bathed and blow-dried, which stresses him out, but he bounced back quickly and enjoyed his rewards for accepting it. That afternoon we took him to the pet store and let him choose his own treat. He sniffed at the venison ears intently, so I held one out for him and he took it in his mouth – so we bought it for him. That night he got another play session with his friends Scout, Jem and also Kiki.
I like having this blog because I feel it keeps me accountable, in a way. I think about my interactions with Luca and I think about how I am building my relationship with him. I get to read other perspectives from friends with totally different dogs and I get to bounce thoughts around and see where they land. I was lucky enough in life to have a dog from the age of 9, a dog that was mine. But, as kids tend to do, I took that for granted and ten years later she disappeared. I loved that dog, but there are so many more things I could have done to build the relationship I had with her. When I got Luca, I promised myself that I would do everything I possibly could to build a strong relationship with him. And to do that, I need to focus on quality. I walk him and feed him, yes, but I also talk to him, touch him, play with him, bathe him, train him, take him places, give him things to do, challenge him, comfort him and love him. I am really pleased with where we are at today, and I am always proud of him.
To be perfectly honest, their interactions together really gives me a whole mess of emotions. And knowing that about 90% of their romantic conversations takes place in either Diamond City or Goodneighbor, it’s honestly simply perfection considering my own backstory for Brianna outside the game and how important those places are for her.
Bless this Mod and all the amazing people who created it.
I’ve been taking this for three months after I first added it to my daily supplements and skin care routine. Huge huge change! @trueclear skin supplements from @navanskincare are not something to doubt which is easy to do when it comes to online products. I’m a user and a believer. I will never stop taking these.

I saw this and decided to take it, not at all disappointed.
Your color is Deepskyblue #00BFFF
Your dominant hues are cyan and blue. You like people and enjoy making friends. You’re conservative and like to make sure things make sense before you step into them, especially in relationships. You are curious but respected for your opinions by people who you sometimes wouldn’t even suspect.
Your saturation level is very high - you are all about getting things done. The world may think you work too hard but you have a lot to show for it, and it keeps you going. You shouldn’t be afraid to lead people, because if you’re doing it, it’ll be done right.
Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.
Not at all disappointed since blue is my favorite color and this describes me pretty well.
