Oh no.....

I truly put my sisters birthday aside. Or did I? The truth is that I decided to make her the best card ever, you ask why? Because she is also a very creative card designer also. I was going to do a pop up card. Now let me tell you that I was going to be on time with the card for her birthday. However, I couldn't get it right. Three tries and not right yet. The fourth time was successful and I got the card sent the day after her birthday. When she received it, she knew I cared and loved her. I just misplaced her birthday. Happy Birthday Sis.

Love to my family, and God Bless.

I can ride.

My people and I go for a ride in this moving thing, they refer to as a car. I really wasn't sure I liked it. Mostly because I would lose my breakfast and you know, as a puppy I need that stuff. It's not bad eaten twice. I digress. Anyway, yesterday morning we went for a ride. That's what they call it. I started to get the sway to the left, sway to right and when to put my body in a hold position. All I have to do is watch the road. Once again, I realized how smart I am.

They say I have to get ready for my trip to Minnesota this summer. Whatever that means. However, I am willing to ride with them. Get it ride with them. I am overly cute.

Anyway, I was thinking, if I get to go with them, I don't stay home in my room. I can learn to ride.

Buff to all those reading my blog.

It's my turn.

While Austin is enjoying and often falling off his perch, I am designing my Valentine's Day cards. And loving every minute. I can't show you everything but I love this one. Don't you just love when you step out of your comfort zone and do something you love. This card incorporates the paper lace doily. Yummm. I also venture into pop up cards. I might show you one of those if Austin will give me back my keyboard.

Happy Blessing from the designer in the house.

They say I'm growing...

But really, they are surely making my world smaller. I remember the first time I jumped up at the window sill in Carols paste em up room. I could spread out and see the world. I loved watching other creatures going by and John arriving home from golf.

But than it happened. I fell off. I thought it was a one time deal. But it started to happen more often. Awake and asleep. I can tell you that I acted as if I wanted to fall off. But between you and I really fell.

Such things as going under the table in the living room or running under the bed, it's getting harder. Growing up is hard to do.

I know that my people will make things right but until then I have to watch out for smaller openings and lower beds.

As always boof to all of you.

NOT Funny

That's all I have to say..... I thought I moved south.

Snowed in South Carolina

They call me Austin.

Today I weighed in at 15 pounds. Both my humans looked a little shocked. And yet smile when they talked. I came home weighing five pounds.

But first I want to tell you what I thought when I first saw them. I was safe and warm in my Greenville Pet Shelter. And everyday was the same. Love and food, but this day was different. I didn't see them right a way but when a little finger came through the gate of my kennel, I lifted my eyes and saw a sad face.

She looked at me and I knew I could help her. I had lots of love to give. She ventured on down the line and then he looked at me. It was a strong connection and I knew I was his. So did he. When she came back, she smiled and said something. The kennel was opened and I was placed, at five pounds and less then three months, in his arms.

At that moment, I knew he was gentle and kind. He hugged me gently, even though he was a large human. And he whispered, you are going home, and she will love you. They walked down the hallway and to the main entrance. I got my new red collar and a new bedroom.

I am now three months old and worldly. I have learned so much and know what he meant by home.

Truly yours

What's with the yard?

It's time to get back to our yard, bring more life to a plain landscape. We are a little behind due to a fence job. Our neighbor decided to put a fence and it would attach to ours. So we decided to have some of the fence replaced. And at the same time enlarge our fenced in area. This was before Austin came into our life. We are happy with the results but since we hired it done, it took away from our lawn budget. It was worth it.
Hope you enjoy the pictures.

We are excite to pick up the pace on our landscaping. So finishing the back yard and doing a little in the front yard is important. Beauty and brawn make such a great team. I know you know which one I am.

God Bless all those who travel through my little blog.

Two thousand eleven...oh my.

Happy New Year to the friends I follow and the ones who follow me. I didn't like last year too much. With Timber leaving us, John's health in question, and my sadness regarding the above, was starting to take a toll on me.

This is a new year, a new beginning and many things learned.

We never got an answer on the cause of John's breathing problem, however, the best part of all the tests are that his lungs are strong and his heart is healthy. As healthy as it can be for a person with heart problems. With the possibility of allergies, he has decided to add to his exercise and diet. We know now that this cannot kill him, only slow him down.

My sadness was diminished with the new arrival, Austin. He is full of energy and was meant for us. When he saw us and we him, it was instant love. Even though he is a Catahoula Leopard mix and that breed is known to be tall, we decided it was destiny. The thing that made it so special was that John decided we needed a new spirit. It was he, who thought we could live without. What a Christmas gift Austin was. And that John saw my need and maybe even his and said yes to destiny.

Now the last subject is my job. Working part time, I know that I want to give them all I have. I started to feel responsible for things I knew were going wrong. That procedure was off and things could be better. I was bring work home, in my head that is, and often had dreams about it. This has to stop, and this is my new years resolution.

"Be a good worker and support person, don't expect that participation will make it better". "And be proud of the work I do".

There I said it. Now lets see how I do. Have a great year to everyone. Love to my family, thanks to my friends, your support was everything to me. To my Internet friends...I am back.

God Bless everyone
