Jeff and Dana are Ethan‘s poppa and momma. Ethan was adopted on March 10, 2021. We are both animal lovers and are the poppa and momma to 4 other dogs, 3 cats, 1 rabbit and 5 humans.
We recently did a second DNA test on Ethan to narrow down a little further exactly what he's all about.

Dana and I want to give a big heart felt thank you to everyone that has followed Ethan's story thus far. We have been overwhelmed and flooded with positive thoughts and prayers and amazing words that you all have spoken. We can never repay all of this. Our hearts are full and our lives are so much better because of all of you. We were so hesitant to open our home on such a public level. We have always enjoyed laying low and being out of the spotlight. I guess that's one more way Ethan has changed us and so many more blessings he has brought to our lives. On the morning of Jan 29th, I would have bet you a million bucks that there was no way we would ever be in a situation like this. But the universe has other plans. And so Ethan, who was always destined to be in our lives, we just didn't know it at the time, arrived at the Kentucky Humane Society and nothing has ever been the same. From the people that dropped him off, to the family that saw him laying there, to the staff that rushed him in, we will always be forever grateful. For the vet staff that brought him back to life, who have all become such good friends, we will be forever in your debt. There is absolutely nothing I would not do for them.
Ethan has a way with people. I can't explain it. He brings happiness and joy every where he goes. He has touched people he has never even met. His light shines so bright and so far that at times it surprises and overwhelms me. He has brought people together of every race, religion, or political affiliation in a way I have never seen. In a world that is fighting division, race relations and a pandemic. People have lost their jobs. They have been forced to stay at home. They have lost loved ones that they never were even able to say goodbye to. They are battling their own diagnosis. They are struggling with depression. They have looked to Ethan. They have seen him on the brink of death. They have seen him fight with every ounce of his being to stay alive. They have seen him struggle to hold his head up. They've seen him struggle to stand. They've seen him have setbacks. But they've seen him fight. And they've seen him determined to live and to take another breath. They've seen him stand and they've seen him take his first steps. They've seen him vocalize his first bark. They've seen him run for the first time. And they were there for his adoption celebration. They have looked to Ethan....and they have said, if he can do it, I can do it. And they have picked themselves up. They have gotten out of bed every day. They have looked for jobs. They decided to start their treatment. They've talked with someone about their struggles. And they are living. They are getting up everyday and they are living. What a wonderful testament to what love can do. I love these people. I am always here for you. And to think about all the little things that had to go right for all this to happen. Mother universe has plans. Take advantage of every day you have and every breath you breathe. That's what Ethan has taught me the most. Please do something kind for someone today.
Now this is another big step for us. We have continued to bring Ethan's daily journey to all of his extended family members, you. I have started a podcast (now a couple), I have gotten involved with animal welfare in KY, we are now selling EthanAlmighty gear, started this website, we are both actively writing, hoping to bring more of Ethan to everyone. Guys, my wife is a saint. She has supported every idea, no matter how crazy, when I have talked to her about something new. I even have another idea even crazier than everything before that I haven't even announced yet. Trust me, she is so involved behind the scenes, she just does not want to be as public as I have been. But she is the most amazing, beautiful, intelligent woman I have ever met. Her heart is as big as the ocean. She's compassionate and by far the hardest working person I know. She has always brought out the best version of me. She is unrelenting in her support and she is a force to be reckoned with. My heart is hers for all time.
