Needing Love

I Wasn’t Done

Our newest foster dog, Lulu. is giving Glen “the look” because he quit petting her.  I don’t think she was ready for him to be done.


Sad Farewell

Yesterday was a very long and sad day. Glen and I decided it was time to bid our sweet dog, Petey, farewell. At 16 he could barely walk without falling and we had no way of knowing just how much pain he was in. The decision is never an easy one to come to, and you always second guess yourself. I thought I would share two of my favorite pictures of Petey.



You were a sweet, gentle boy with the softest fur. You were loved and you will definitely be missed!

Stinking Chamomile

Glen picked some fresh flowers for me yesterday. They look like little daisies and are quite pretty. The true name of this flower is anthemis cotula, but is commonly called stinking chamomile due to its unpleasant odor and its resemblance to the true chamomile. Although they may smell horrible, they brightened my day 🙂


Demanding Attention

As I’ve said before, Sadie sure loves her doggies. Here is a series of pictures where she is trying to make Lucy pay attention to her.





Love is a warm fuzzy blanket

Glen and I both wanted a lovie kitty. Sadie is lovie, as long as it involves a warm fuzzy blanket.


She’s a Snuggler

Sadie, the newest addition to our family, enjoys snuggling with both Lucy and Petey.



Getting Along

Lucy is finally getting along with James and is actually playing.  About 20 seconds into the video my bird Lila decided to add a telephone ring for your listening pleasure.

Annual Girls Day Out

My friends, Ila, Vickie and I had our annual Christmas girls day out yesterday.  We went down to the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City.  We decided to eat at the restaurant Zocalo.  The food was very tasty and the adult beverage that I ordered was call a gin blossom and it was fantastic!


We had our waitress take our picture, which as you can see didn’t turn out that great.


We had a great time.  Wish we could manage to spend more time together.

Vickie loved the flower baskets and wanted a picture with them.  Here she is being silly.

Getting Cozy

Our new kitty, Sadie, loves our Lucy girl.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
