In March 2013,  Dinahmite was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. We celebrated her 13th birthday in May.  July 11,2013 Dinahmite passed.

In August of 2014, Tigerbuddy was diagnosed with Cushing’s disease. The vet gave Tiger a medicine called Vetoryl 60mg. Give 2 capsules once a day. Sunday, September 14, 2014 at 10:15AM when Tigerbuddy went to play with Dinahmite. Tiger had a horrible reaction to Vetoryl which in turn hastened his death.

 

To whom may read this: Cushing’s disease in dogs can be treated with proper guidance and your dog friend can live years more.

I have not been very active on my blog due to too much to list.

Love you both.

 

Enjoy your day!

 

 

Our Charlie Brown Christmas Tree   28 comments


Since the candy canes melted all over our tree decorations back in 1997, we haven’t bothered with a  Christmas tree. On a whim, we decided to put up our own Charlie Brown kind of tree last Thursday.

 

Our GA pine Charlie Brown Christmas tree

We cleaned out a corner of the living room and went to find the perfect tree. The perfect tree is the first one I saw. Easy! After finding a tall and wide vase and round stones to stabilize the tree, we begin to rummage around the house for the tree decor. We find cardboard and foil for the star and man in the moon and use three bits of foil to create round ornaments using paper clips to hang them with care. Large gaudy earrings make great light weight sparkle. I find sewing notions in red and gold to drape on the tree. Some saved silver ribbon gift packaging works great for tinsel. The tree skirt is an unfinished quilt piece. We also found three small ribbon and a few bits of fake holly leaves and berries to add to the tree.

Welcome Home Brandi: Eight is Enough   10 comments


It is no secret that I love dogs.  Our  youngest boy Otis is happy to greet Brandi before the other six dogs get to make her acquaintance.

Brandi is ready to play chase with Otis.

Brandi is a terrific young pup!

 

Enjoy your day!

Kong vs. Otis   Leave a comment


Otis is a young strong chap with impressive jaw strength.

As with all bullies, he needs a durable fun toy.

The Kong never had a chance.

 

 

 

Enjoy your day!
