John and I (Katie) were living in Narragansett, RI with a 7 year old American Bulldog, Zev Love. On January 18, 2013, we adopted our second dog, a 4 year old ABD/Pit Bull mix named Lexi. We adopted Lexi from the amazing people at Handsome Dan’s Rescue for Pit Bull Type Dogs and it is the best decision we ever made. Both of our dogs bring us so much joy and excitement, as well as the occasional challenge and bump in the road, but we are all on this trip together.
About 2 months after we adopted Lexi, I got the overwhelming and wonderful news that I had been accepted to the University of Hawaii at Manoa’s graduate program in sociology. The wheels were set in motion and in August of 2013 we made the huge move from Rhode Island to Hawaii! We were able to avoid Hawaii’s strict quarantine requirements by carefully planning for the trip and preparing the dogs according to the guidelines. We all made it safely and have been loving living in Hawaii.
Lexi has hundreds of supporters and fans through her time with Handsome Dan’s Rescue, so we thought that a blog would be a way for all of her supporters to follow along on her next journey with our family. Thanks for joining us on this wonderful, crazy journey, wherever it might take us!
