For Nautikos: SAM - the dog who nearly wasn't

This is Sam. He's the 5 month old pup who had been left in an empty apartment for 3 days, found by the landlord, and was on his way to being euthanized until a kind soul stepped in and contacted me. It was too late for his little brother, but Sam is now a part of our family. Sam is huge. The vet... Sign in to see full entry.

I sure am missing you guys and ladies! I come in and read, but so often I am just too darned tired to comment. My job is tougher than I want to admit – things are processed slower in this brain of mine and I have to pedal to keep up. Then there is the doggies (3 now) and the kitty each vying for...

It can only be quiet around my house for so long, although just 3 days is maybe pushing it a bit.... The parties were over and I was back to work, and Mommy and Bandit and I were resting up in the evenings. Then the call came in.

Happy Birthday to our Miracle Baby

Last year, at this time on this night, I was in the delivery room with my son and little DIL, who was so sick, yet straining to bring her daughter safely into this world. At 11:04 PM our little Miko was born. While she spent the first 3 months attached to machines in the hospital, my Blogit... Sign in to see full entry.


Well, there you go, folks! If you want something, just stand beside me and wish aloud – you may get it in spades – umm – I mean shovels, because that’s what it will take to clean my gallery of this huge snowfall! Maybe I wished too often and too sincerely? I suspect that all except the avid skiers... Sign in to see full entry.

Last year at this exact time I was sitting on the floor in the vet’s office, holding and stroking his head on my knee, saying a final goodbye to my beloved Grump. I had spent Christmas Day much the same way – lying beside him on his cushion at home, trying to prepare both of us for what was to come.... Sign in to see full entry.

I wanted to write more, but our electricity went off yesterday afternoon after a strong wind storm, and all the cooking and cleaning planned for that day was put on hold, so this morning I am running!! At least the power came back on this morning at 6:30, so I had an early start. Both ovens are... Sign in to see full entry.
