A Weekend To Remember!

| March 1, 2018

              Click on the pictures for a better view. Last week was a dreary week of rain, mud, and me fighting a flu- like virus.  The Collie Club of Austin put on their specialty shows last weekend, and we had some of our collies entered.  The Collie Club of [...]

Good news / Bad news

| January 8, 2018

NO  PUPPIES       First the bad news- disappointing anyway. Neither Tracer nor Reba are going to have puppies. I thought for sure they were both pregnant, but I began to get concerned that even though they had both thickened in the middle,  I could feel no puppies. They both went to the vet [...]

The love of Mike

We are all running around planning for this and that. Hopefully though, we remember to enjoy the many moments that make up our lives. [...]

And so it goes

October and November have been strange here with my husband Mike in the hospital most of the time. He is usually my anchor that keeps things at home rolling along efficiently. Thank goodness he should be home from the rehab hospital before Christmas. He is making steady improvements slowly but surely, and that is something [...]

Bright spots

| November 5, 2017

My husband has been sick for awhile, so things have not exactly been normal at home lately — whatever that is. He’s had a rough go of it mostly resulting from damnable Diabetes. He is back in the hospital right now in ICU, but is getting better. I’m writing this by his hospital bed right [...]

Looking Good!

He was one of 850 artists displaying their work along Magnolia Street for 18 blocks through the medical district. There are a lot of talented artists [...]

Cute babies large and small

| October 9, 2017

Melody’s lone surviving puppy- Miss Jilly- is four weeks old now. She is a spoiled baby and doing very well. She has learned to drink water (Praise the Lord!), and eat soft food. She is also playing with us, with her mother, and her toys. I so wish she had at least one littermate for [...]
