Santa Paws

Saturday, December 17th, 2016

We got to see Santa Paws this year at Petsmart.   One of our vets Dr Campbell retired so our vets office didn’t have Santa Paws this year.  They had Dr Campbell’s retirement party.  We wish her the best in her retirement after 36 or 37 year of working there.   So I took the babies […]

My dearest friend Shanna, Today we lost you to this damn disease.  Our Tripawds brought us together and made us friends.  I know Trouble was there to greet you but I sure hope Sassy was there  to welcome you..  My heart is breaking.  It wasn’t supposed to be this way you were supposed to sail […]

Well, next Monday the 14th would have been Sassy’s 4 year ampuversary if she was here.  So we will start with my girl that brought us to this family.   Even though our journey wasn’t what I wanted ( I wanted a lot longer) I still love her and miss her.  This past 2 months have […]

Four years ago today

Monday, October 10th, 2016

Today I had one of those wonderful Facebook memories (not really) although it brought me here where I have a great family.  Today would be 4 years when we thought Sassy had Osteoscaroma.  I wanted it to be a bad dream and an infection.  We started this journey with many tears and screams and ended […]

The Puppy UP Walk

Monday, September 19th, 2016

Wow, all I can say is what an amazing couple of days.  I left home knowing it would be a great weekend but it totally exceeded my expectations.  I got there and had to make a small detour to the Verizon store because I forgot my phone charger and the car charger wasn’t working right.   […]

Three Years as an Angel

Saturday, August 20th, 2016

Three years ago today I knew it would be a difficult day.  Not because I knew it would be Sassy’s last day but because Karma our good friend had made that final day arrangements for her Baby Brendol.  If you haven’t read about Brendol please do here.    She was a very loving sweet girl.   […]

Happy 3rd Birthday Snickers & Jasmine

Friday, August 19th, 2016

Wow, hard to believe these wonderful babies are 3 years old today.  Who knew 3 years ago they would be apart of my life.  (well I didn’t but I think Sassy knew in a way).   They are so much fun and a handful all in one.  They have helped heal a broken shattered heart that […]

The Day I’ll Finally Stop Grieving

    Well, I figured we were over the hump with Jasmine’s leg (the left one anyway).  Now we have a whole different can of worms going on.  On May 12, I noticed this lump on the inside ankle of her right leg pretty much on the ankle bone.  She was kind of licking at […]
