Puppy Love!

Meet Rugby! He and his beautiful family came by for a visit today. Lucky me!! This will probably be my last post for awhile. I'm nearing the end of my cancer journey (I hope) and this last stage will have me recovering for quite awhile. So, wish me luck!

Spoiling Sam.

 Only a few days away from my big day and then it will be awhile before I'll be able to walk him or take him swimming. He sure looked happy today.

Now and then.

Would you believe the dog on the right was Tika at 6 months old? This is how she looked the day we brought her home.

The world lost a very special person this week. I'm still trying to process it. She was beautiful in every sense of the word. Everyone she met, loved her. She always greeted me with a smile and a hug while saying "Hey ShirleyB". She was in such a good place. She sat by me on a few of my chemo sessions and I recall telling Dan how quickly time went by because we talked the entire three hours. We were supposed to spend one day together and I was feeling really down and considered cancelling our outing. I didn't and was so glad I made that decision. My beautiful friend has a way of calming you down and lifting your spirit. She reassured me everything was going to be okay and I believed her. I have a feeling you are bringing joy to people in other ways now. I will miss you. You will forever be in my heart.
