The Weekend......

I hope all of you had a great 4th of July!!!!! I basically stayed in and did nothing , they have fireworks stands around here , so I did get to listen to that well into the night......not really a fan and the dogs hate the noise. I suspect I will be hearing the same tonight!!
So I just wanted to post some pics from the weekend.......
This was my petsitting job this weekend.......

Baby Scotties!!!

They are so cute......but puppies are a lot of work!!! When I got them out to clean their pen they untied my shoes and were clinging to the shoelaces.....made it a little hard to walk. These little guys are my friend's show dogs. I couldn't get a great pic of them....they never stopped moving.
Was driving to the rescue Friday and saw something on the road a head of me.......it was this!!!

 

Some duck with a ton of ducklings behind them. They were moving so fast I almost didn't get the pic...actually almost drove into the ditch.....but it was worth it , made my day!!!!
So now I have a task for you....I took this picture the other day of our girl , Amika. I had a bunch of normal pics, but then got this one.....how should I caption it?? Any help would be great!!

Have a wonderful Sunday evening.....
See you soon!!

I'm Back.....for Good....

I really needed that month off......clearing my head and catching up with other things that needed to be taken care of. I really haven't been on social media much either.....that's why you haven't heard from me.
June has a lot of birthday's and stuff, so let's start with the dogs. Tanky came into my house five years ago this month. I think I told the story but he was thrown out of a moving car....much to the horror of some of our volunteers. They picked him up , amazingly he was fine, got him vetted and took him to one of our smaller shows. He spent the whole day staring at me and I knew he would be my third baby!!!!


Happy Birthday little buddy!!!!
Miss Faith has been with me two years this month. I would see her at the kennel....she had been saved from a bait dog situation....but no one was looking after her. I would go up every day and give her antibiotics and clean her wounds.....but finally decided to take her home and work with her there. Also saving myself a 20 mile round trip per day!!!! She is a really great dog and is going nowhere....I love her!!!!
Happy Birthday to you too girl!!!

Her usual sleeping position........
My beautiful Miss Lizzy is still doing well. After we got her on meds for her arthritis she and I are back to walking everyday.....shorter distances, but still. It's been 11 months since I got her 3-6 months to live diagnosis and here she is!!!!
Pretty Girl!!!!!
Some other birthdays this month, my sis had her b-day.....not saying her age!!!! My mom would have been 87 this month......I miss you everyday......
Mom and me.....many,many years ago....
That's it for now.....will be talking to you again soon.....
Have a great evening!!!!

I'm Back......For a Minute

I thought about completely quitting my blog last night.....I don't think I can do that. But for now I need to spend time with Lizzy....when things are less stressful I will be back.

Happy Memorial Day.....

This will be my second to last post......when Lizzy dies will be my last. I was hoping that this blog would take on a wonderful group of people.....it 's unfortunate  that did not happen. I wish you all the best......

A Tough Week......

Haven't blogged in over a week....so many things going on.....pretty much all bad. A week ago Sunday our AC went off again...this time it was a leaking coil. Had to get that replaced, I waited a week so I could use the guy I had used before....so it was a bit muggy in the house for the week. But by far the worst for me is my Lizzy girl. Saturday I took her to the vet in an emergency situation...she could barely get her back legs up. We put her on a combination of Rimadyl and Tramadol....it's only been two days....but it's not better. A week and a half ago we could go for a mile walk....now she can barely make it 20 steps down the street.....it makes me so sad. I know we are reaching the end...her cancer makes her so weak that she can't combat the arthritis. Here she is in her fav spot......
Please keep her in your thoughts......

A Fun Friday......

This last Friday Elsie, Denise and I got the pleasure of visiting TMR Rescue. This is a sanctuary for over 400 donkeys, mules and horses. Most of them had been neglected or abused and some of the horses were used for medical experiments. At TMR they get to live out the rest of their lives on a peaceful sanctuary. They also had some dogs they would like to get adopted, some babies just dumped there. Donkeys don't like dogs , so the dogs have to be confined most of the time. I know some all breed rescues , so I'm going to help with the dogs. We did get to have a tour of the 207 acre ranch and it was great!!!!
Here's what we saw......











Oreo.....looking for a new home!!


Ariel is looking for a home too!!!
We saw beautiful horses and donkey's in ever size, shape and color!!! I could have stayed up there all day...it was truly a great experience....and a fantastic group of people taking care of all these guys!!!
That was my Friday....hope you are having a good weekend....to all you mom's....Happy Mother's Day!!!!
