Therapy Dog

Tate wanted to show off his fancy bandana. This dog was born to be a therapy dog. We are so excited for him.

Oh, and Jolene is on holidays for a few days so this is her friend Amanda (who hacked into her blogger account.) :)

Safe !

Boone is home tonight♥, sleeping peacefully & without fear for the first time in 2 nights & 2 days, as is Amanda I'm sure.
Many people helped to bring Boone home, with search efforts, prayers & thoughts.
It's been an emotional few days.......sleep Boonie sleep, you are safe now :))

Please Help

I'm not sure if any of you reading my blog are different from Amanda's blog, or Wendy's, but I am posting this anyway.
Boone is Amanda's dog & he went missing on Sat night, the 25th about 10 pm. from 12A St & 8th Ave N.
He is medium sized, grey with a wavy coat. He is wearing a blue collar.
We have put up over 100 posters & have had a couple of sightings around 18th St N & 4th Ave N so he seems to be sticking to that area.
He is very shy & nervous of loud noises. He may be able to be lured by food, but the best thing is to call Amanda or the animal shelter if you see him.
Help us bring Boonie home.

It Finally Happened!

I turned 50 !!!!!!!
It happened on Sept. mom & sister Debra drove up from Sherwood Park. My mom was there visiting Debra so they came to see me as well. The big surprise was my sister Joanne who flew up the same morning from Thunder Bay...I was so excited to have my family here for my birthday, we had a fantastic weekend. It was my best birthday ever!

The Girls at my work had this cake made for me!....I still haven't been able to eat "Tate & Kort":) ......

Back To Normal

Perkins visit is going as smoothly as I hoped it would...mind you he did do quite a bit of growling at Kort when he first arrived LOL! has been 2 months since he has been here & he wanted to remind Kort who was really in charge :)), after that it was just like he never left.
Wendy discovered these elk antlers at Trailblazers the other day so I stopped to pick some up for the boys, they are a big hit! Kort is in the livingroom, Tate is downstairs & Perkins is in here with me, they are all happily chewing away.
As soon as Perkins got in the house he started snooping through the toy boxes for any new toys, he found a duck :))......

As you can see below, Perkins can't decide which is more fun, the squeaky duck or the elk antler so he has both, he goes back & forth between squeaking & chewing ! ......

We sure have missed The Perkins :))♥

The Perkins

Perkins is coming to stay overnight !! It is the first time I have had him since he was paralyzed in July.
He is still recovering from his surgery but is doing so amazing that he is well enough to spend the night.
We can't wait !

So Proud !

This is Ty, aka "Squishy"......I LOVE Squishy :))......

Just for you Squishy, cuz the plane ran out of gas & I didn't get to see your pretty purple ribbon!......

I Remember

Today I would like to pay tribute to my mom & dad as it would have been their 52nd Wedding Anniversary.
Mom & Dad on their 50th Anniversary......

Mom & Dad dating in 1957......

This was one of their favourite singers, Marty Robbins, and one of their favourite songs......

Another special song by Marty Robbins, it pretty much sums up how my dad felt about my mom♥,
she was his world.

I miss you so much Dad ♥

Yesterday was mom's birthday. My sister in law posted this picture of her that they took last night while out for her birthday dinner. I have not seen my mom look so rested & healthy in a very long time. The past 7 years caring for my dad, plus his recent death, have been hard on her, this picture warms my heart.
love you mom ♥
