Joy, whether canine or human, is always contagious. 💗 I’ve been wanting to bring Neila to Hawai

Joy, whether canine or human, is always contagious. 💗
I’ve been wanting to bring Neila to Hawaii with me for almost 15 years (her whole life), and after 3-6 months of paperwork and blood tests, I finally got the ok from the hawaiian government for her to join me this time! 🐶💗
Now let me tell you, paperwork, especially very detailed and tedious paperwork, is one of the banes of my existence. I’m very intimidated by it, because I’m not the most detail-oriented person sometimes… and knowing that I could buy my ticket, fly all the way here, land in Hawaii, and then be sent home for mistakes in my paperwork, was a very scary thought to sit with. 😱
Luckily I had every I dotted and T crossed, and @zoeeshay from @kauaihumanesociety was so sweet and helpful with everything. She even gave her a little doggy lei! 🙏🏼
Now as I sit here with Neila on a Kauai beach, seeing her 14 year old eyes light up with puppy-like joy at all the new sights and smells, I feel it too. 💗
I only wish I hadn’t let the paperwork intimidate me for so long, and had brought her here far sooner. Oh well, you live and you learn, and at least we made it here now. 🙏🏼
