Santa visited the 6 furries

On one of the coldest days of our year...Santa made his visit at the Dog Dish here in our hometown.....thank goodness we were the first in line to sit on Santa's lap. The first 4 had their picture taken while we were unloading the other two, the whole time, Scooter the one on the far right, was crying for his mama (just like a baby) and the others were not taking their eyes off of mama. They were not too much more confident of this guy that had let two of them slide down in his lap last year and than let the elf snap the picture as two were totally hidden in Santa's lap.
As soon as the picture was snapped (outside of course) we packed the 6 back into the stroller and headed home. Although the last picture is from Thanksgiving...they all came home and still collapsed on the couch.... that jolly ol' man was more than they want to see again for quite awhile.
Who knows, maybe next year if the least Fred and I got in the picture to help out this year and wish you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!

Our new little rescue-SCOTTY! he is...This is Scotty...the precious rescue that was thrown over the fence at the part and abandoned by his owner. Absolutely nothing wrong with him. He is an angel and the first one that has ever gone to Fred first. He so fits in with the others and is so mellow. He's 4-5 yrs. old and the biggest of the bunch, he's 7.5 lbs. and a true lover. All he wants to do is just fit in, be loved...which he has tons of and be family. Think he knows we loved rescuing him.

Cecelia's Birthday and the furs Ice Cream Social

Got a chance to call my sister (she's the older sister - LOL) and wished her a happy birthday. It was fun to catch up and talk to her.

Hey girl Happy Birthday

Later that evening we had an Ice Cream Social for the furry 5 and it was so hot, almost too hot for even Ice Cream.

We had breakfast with daughter Erin, Chuck, Aiden & Holden

Fred watched it all:

Got an invite to have breakfast with Erin and her family and than got to see my boys in their football uniforms. That's right, FOOTBALL! Could not believe that those boys (Aiden and Holden) have grown up that much. Aiden came out first and wow, didn't realize how much he had grown, both of them are taller than me now (well that isn't much since I am now shrunk down to 5'1") than Holden came out and I thought that I was looking at Chuck, he was definitely a mini Chuck. Time goes by way too quickly. Erin is there with her 3 little furballs too.

Our relaxing weekend!

Had a great time for the 4th of July. Got together with family to eat BBQ and watch the fireworks.

On Sunday we did our weekly trip to Starbucks for the furkids and us and than went to the Dog Park for the first time with the furry 5. They were off of their leashes and leads for the very first time and guess what...they are my little social butterflies. Where do they get that from? They greeted everyone and played like crazy. Their only experience before has been the backyard, this was with about 15 other furs. They were the hit of the park.
They loved it, gave them about 1 1/2 hrs of freedom and socializing and than the heat started to get to all of us.

It was a great weekend and wished that I had more relaxing ones like that. Got to talk with both of my brothers and that made it even better.

Keeping so very busy with my Yorkie network...Yorkie Kingdom. It is the best place to be ever. It's so safe and people are so kind and wonderful. Wish I had found them last year and wouldn't have had the stress that I had before. Love them... Let me know if you want to come visit. It is the most precious place to AWESOME!

Discovered Yorkie sites

It is so nice to find a healing, healthy, blessed place

It protects us from those same people who hurt so many and it encourages us to be who we truly are.

Love it so much and I am the happiest that I have been in a very long time.

Still planning on getting in touch with all old and new, but plans for the trip have been changed. With the economy the way it is right now, Fred won't be able to get away from work for quite awhile.

No 2nd honeymoon trip for Freddie and I in the works for now.........but so much more with all my friends and family will happen.

Been too busy

Been so busy since November with so many projects that I finally came to the realization that I needed some down time. I had been planning on a trip with Freddie, still doing State rep for nursing homes, CASA court advocate work, and rescues, but cutting back on some of the other trivial things that I was doing that took all my time and energy away from friends and family. Going to concentrate on the important things now.

So checking out all of my friends and their blogs, twitter, facebook, my space and whatever else you are doing. Trying to keep in contact with all of my peeps and see what they have been up to. Realized that life, thanks to my brother, is far too short to WASTE on the trivial pursuits and things and am concentrating on the really true and honest things in my life now.

So watch for me to come visiting you.

big hugs,
To those who know me as Marnie I'm looking for you
and those who know me as Maryann I'm looking for you!

Lost my best friend

I lost my best friend yesterday...she moved from me.

I'm very sad and have cried a lot about this but I know it's not the end of the world.

Now I know I may someday talk to her again, but it won't quite ever be the same.......

Good Bye Baleigh

I'm sad but oh so very happy.

Our precious little Baleigh is going to live with Sandy (Angie @ the Dog Dish - her grandma) There is absolutely no one I would trust more to give as much love to Baleigh as this little girl needs. She is going to be Sandy's companion, friend and love. The Dog Dish is one of the greatest dog boutique's ever. It's a social gathering place as well as an awesome shopping place.

Both of them needed each other.

Sandy will be surprised with her on Sunday (Mother's Day) by the best grand daughter in the world.

I cried for days but knew these two most definitely needed each other more than her being with us and our five. She needs to be spoiled beyond anything else and Sandy is up to the job plus Angie will have a hand in this 4 month old girl growing and becoming Super Dog. We will still be able to see her at the Dog Dish functions so my heart doesn't ache as much.

I know that we are doing what is best for Baleigh and Sandy.

New Rescue - times are tough for people

Got three new rescues in, in the last 3 weeks. Found home for two of them, but this owner surrender, owner had a foreclosure on her home, bad health and other issues. She could keep the little male but not the female. Meet Baleigh (BayBay)...we have not made a decision yet about her .......... but you look and tell me what you think about her............She is a Morkie (Maltese and Yorkie) and she is 17 weeks old. She's housetrained, sits, lays down and is very social. Does she sound like one of mine? The others love her and Sam has become her new best friend. He's the oldest and he loves her. Bindi used to bug the others because she's still young and now Baleigh is teasing and bugging everyone including Bindi. PAY BACK!
