Summer scritches!! We're on vacation mode until August! β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈ


Mom!! What do you mean you're not done with work yet?! One more day? *Sigh*


Being a firefighter is extremely rewarding, but it can also put an everlasting strain on your mental and physical healthβ€”even relationships are affected. Make sure you take time out of your schedule to prioritize your mental health.


Preventing su***de in the fire service starts with us checking on our brothers and sisters, providing ourselves as a resource and someone to have uncomfortable conversations with. Don’t be afraid to say something when it feels like something is off.

I am in LOVE with my new collar from Upcycled Adventure - Handmade Climbing Rope Leashes & Collars!! It's perfect for summer and totally matches my vintage tag from Bad Tags too! It's made from recycled climbing rope and looks like candy! 🍭
Who is ready for summer??!! β˜€οΈ

Wild Wednesday!! This giant beast is Mischka, our friend's dog, and Tanner's foster brother. He loves to annoy me since he's a goofball but we get along fine.
Look at how tiny Tanner was!!

I don't usually have my tongue out, but I do like to show off my giant teefers. 😁

Happy EMS week to all of our first responders that work on the "box" "bus" "rig" "medic unit". And those who are since retired and paved the way for new advancements in pre hospital care.πŸš‘ We can't wait to see our friends at next month!!

Do goats bother you? Naaawwww 🐐


Don't worry, I didn't do what you think I was gonna do! It's always bitey face, never bitey tail. And we don't bite, even though Tanner tries to get my feet. 😁 Tanner is just really loud when he plays and I do air chomps.
