A Perfect Granddad And Their Little Monsters
I’m writing a personal story of my children – the daring adventures of innocence where everyday brings its curiosities and surprises. Each day opens up a new short chapter in their lives.
Words are not my first choice of a medium, so the story is told with photographs.
I would like to present to you my dad, a grandad of my little monsters. My dad wasn’t really a perfect dad, but he became a perfect grandad.
I Adopted Husky And Later He Saved Me From An Abusive Relationship
I found Kyro through an ad on Craigslist. His Mother had abandoned Kyro and
his 9 siblings. The owner sent out a plea online for assistance in raising the
puppies. I gladly volunteered and helped to bottle feed, raise and find the
puppies homes. Kyro ended up coming home with me because I couldn’t resist his
chunky puppy belly!
When I adopted Kyro I was trapped in an abusive relationship, in which I had
lost all hope of escaping. Kyro became my excuse to go on adventures and escape
the situation. Ultimately, I left my ex due to him beginning to target Kyro with
his rage. Kyro was and is my world – I couldn’t bare to see anything happen to
him. After several months of us being out of the situation and adventuring
around – I found a deep passion for photography. Capturing our travels together
became my inspiration and gave me the bravery to find my happiness and strength
once again. A peace settled in my soul and I found our daily adventures to be a
healing process that started to repair me inside and out.
The nickname Goldilocks and the Wolf was given to us by my Mother. With my long
blonde hair and Kyro’s Agouti coloring – the name just stuck. It became my
Instagram name and the name of my photography business. Through the lens of my
camera I tried to capture the ‘Fairy-tale’ moments we were seeing in our
journeys together. Fairy-tales certainly are better when you have a Knight in
shining armor. Or, in my case, a blue-eyed hero covered in fur. Together we have
learned to stop and enjoy even the most simple of moments. And we both certainly
appreciate the moments that absolutely take your breath away. I have caught Kyro
so many times just sitting and watching the world around him. With Kyro by my
side I’ve learned to brave and try things I would have never considered before.
For example, waking up at 3AM to hike a mountain just to watch the sun crest
over the mountains.
Where would I be had Kyro not come into my life? I honestly can’t answer that
question. I just count my blessings every day that he ended up with me. Kyro’s
happiness and my happiness have become reflections of one another. Focusing on
photography has really opened my eyes to the world around me. Colors, sights and
places look so much more vibrant and full of life. The wonder around me has
absorbed me into a constant state of Wanderlust. Kyro raised a shroud from my
life. He tore back all of my fears and really saw right into my soul. He showed
me the person I couldn’t see inside myself. The person he saw and loved. He has
helped me to become the person I’ve always wanted to be – inside of the shadow
of myself I was before. It’s hard to look into Kyro’s eyes and not see an old
soul there. An understanding of things that went greater than myself. His eyes
are like looking into the eyes of someone who has lived a hundred life times.
Now I am working on sharing my story with the world. It has not be easy to
relive the memories of the past abuse, but my goal is to help inspire others
that are in (or were in) situations like mine. To help others see that there is
a positive after all of the negative and that one day… You will find yourself
again. I found my four-legged Knight – who knows where yours is waiting.
That’s us – Goldilocks and the Wolf
