Gracie’s 4th B-day

I’m getting these posted about a month late! The kids really enjoyed doing this for Gracie. It was all so cute! 🙂 So sweet of our neighbor Keon to come by w/ a gift also! 🙂
4 yr. old Gracie…anticipating her “cake” and gifts! 🙂
This is what the kids put together for Gracie…they broke up several treats to put on top of her “cake.”
Our neighbor Keon stopped by to give Gracie a gift…Wasn’t that sweet?! 🙂
Keon w/ present full of treats, while Kerry looks on.

Happy Monday!

Ever had this feeling?  I sure have, but it’s never been this funny:

Preciousness and Puppies

They’re SOOOOO cute!  You think I want another puppy?  Who said I want another puppy? 🙂

Lemonade’s A Good Thing…

…and I LIKE it!


I got an email from my brother Johnny today, entitled, “When Life Gives You Lemonade…Dedicated To All Pet-Lovers.” Of course, since I love dogs, lemonade, and all things inspirational, I thought I must share. Below is part of the message I received:


This is ‘Faith’

This dog was born on Christmas Eve in the year 2002. He was born with 3 legs – 2 healthy hind legs and 1 abnormal front leg which needed to be amputated.

He of course could not walk when he was born. Even his mother did not want him.

His first owner also did not think that he could survive. Therefore, he was thinking of ‘putting him to sleep’.
By this time, his present owner, Jude Stringfellow, met him and wanted to take care of him.
She was determined to teach and train this dog to walk by himself. Therefore she named him ‘Faith’.


In the beginning, she put Faith on a surfing board to let him feel the movements.

Later she used peanut butter on a spoon as a lure and reward for him to stand up and jump around..

Even the other dog at home also helped to encourage him to walk. Amazingly, only after 6 months, like a miracle, Faith learned to balance on his 2 hind legs and jump to move forward.

After further training in the snow, he now can walk like a human being.


Faith loves to walk around now. No matter where he goes, he just attracts all the people around him.
He is now becoming famous on the international scene. He has appeared on various newspapers and TV shows.
There is even one book entitled ‘With A Little Faith’ being published about him.





**I say it’s always good to be reminded…of how to make lemonade! 😉


**P.S. I discovered Faith’s official website, here. The book, entitled, “With A Little Faith,” can be found over here.

Who Is Really At Risk?

Last week, Scott forwarded this email message to me:


If you are an owner of a dog that belongs to a “dangerous breed” category

and you also have a small child please take this as a warning.

Don’t leave your dog with the child unattended under any circumstances.

Only a little moment was enough for the following to happen.



How Could I Resist?

Well, I haven’t shared any puppy pics for a while, and today, I just couldn’t resist this one:

Pitiful Pooch…

…on Wordless Wednesday


On a beautiful fall day, 2-3 months back, I snapped these photos of my Gracie Girl:



–Gracie says, “Sure is a nice day…might be nice to go outside.”



“…Yep, it’s a nice one alright. If somebody really loved me, I guess they’d let me out.”



Gracie’s still not amused: “Yes, Mom, I know you’re still there…outside…waving around your silly little black box. I’m choosing to ignore you now.”



“Aww, a hug from the boy…at least someone cares.”



“Ooh, I just have to steal a kiss…I can’t resist my little human. Hey…maybe he will let me out!”
