Our sweet babies !

| April 15, 2018

Both Pearl’s and Carina’s puppies are doing awesome- getting cuter day by day.  Pearl’s puppies are a little bigger right now. Carina’s babies are right behind– making good progress too. I’m sticking by my previous predictions on which puppies are rough or smooth. I named Pearl’s pups Irish names for now since they were born [...]

Blessed! The puppies are here!

| April 1, 2018

I’m counting my blessings and they are many! Above all I am thankful for Jesus- that whosoever believes in Him would not perish but have everlasting life. Nothing tops that gift. I am thankful for the love, kindness, and help of my family and friends.  My loved ones and buddies that have given their time [...]

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

| December 6, 2017

Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.  (John Lennon) – Lennon hit on a profound truth here – with its roots in the Bible. I’m busy. You’re busy. 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

| November 29, 2017

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 [...]
