There's no doubt about it...

This one has my heart!
Lily Hope opened her eyes today!

Does this picture melt your heart or what?

Little Eyes

The moment I've been waiting for has finally arrived! Earlier today, little Spottie opened his eyes, followed by Pooh. The other pup's eyes are beginning to open, too. Lily Hope has only one open so far.

It's hard to look at these puppies without feeling your heart melting!

It's beginning to get crowded at the milk bar!
Lily Hope is the one near Sarah's nose.

A Moment in Slience

Our Gift to the Fallen
A Short Poem by Charlie Gragg
Penryn, California

For each soldier that has fallen so that many may stand
We honor their spirit as they pass to God's hand
For without their sacrifice we would live forever in fear
We pray for their loved ones and provide a salute and a tear
God help us heal the wounds of hate and the misery of war
That is our gift to our fallen heroes that are amongst us no more.

One week old

The puppies turned one week old yesterday.
I meant to post tons of new pictures, but the day was hard & tiring. I was having one of those "I can't wait for the day to end" days.

On the left is a picture I took of them yesterday. They are all so big now, and as each day passes, they get more & more sweeter. - They just melt my heart.

It was also raining yesterday, so I went out and took some more flower pictures. I just love little water drops on the flower petals!

I'm thinking about doing something with all these flower photos I've taken. Maybe start another Cafepress store and put them on postcards and stuff.

One Must ..

Just living is not enough...

One must have sunshine...


And a little flower...

~ Hans Christian Andersen

(Second photo is Lynx Lake. Prescott National Forest. - I didn't take that one)

My life full of puppies and I'm loving it!

It's been day 6 since the puppies have arrived. - I can't wait for their little eyes to open!


Spottie Bottom

Named for having little spots all over his nose/mouth and paws.


The chocolate/white male. He always has a sweet look on his face!
(Of course they all do)


Another chocolate/white boy, only this one has some black coloring, too.

He's got quite the belly on him!

Lily Hope

Sarah's only female out of the litter. I just adore this pup. Those itty bitty paws got a tight grip on my heart. She's the quiet one out of the whole litter. A slow eater, too. She's also the smallest one. Which worries me a bit. Her Brothers are double the size of her now, and they are fisty eaters. We're having to make sure she gets her share at the milk bar. Which is okay. - She is my baby girl.

I can't remember which two these are. I think the one laying over the other is named Harry. AKA Chubby Chops! He's the biggest!

A new star ~

There's a new star shining bright upon us tonight...

Please light a candle for Zack's family. His Mom (Owner) is a very dear friend of mine. I know her heart is breaking and many tears are shedding. My heart is hurting, too. Zack was such a strong fighter. He will be missed dearly.

My Journeys Just Begun

Don't think of me as gone away
My journey's just begun
Life holds so many facets
This earth is but one

Just think of me as resting

From the sorrows and the tears
In a place of warmth and comfort
Where there are no days and years

Think of how I must be wishing
That you could know today

How nothing but your sadness
Can really go away

And think of me as living
In the hearts of those I touched
For nothing loved is ever lost
And I know I was loved so much

It only took 7!

It took 7 little hearts...

28 little paws...

14 itty bitty little floppy ears...

To make me realize that even though things are tough right now, there's still time to smile. Two days ago I was feeling so down inside. Crying that I was spending Twix's 5th birthday without her (Two birthdays have passed since she's been missing) and also because Laurel had been gone a year. After seeing the puppies being born yesterday, it really made me think. Instead of shedding tears over Twix and my friend, I should have spent the day celebrating the memories they gave me. I should have remembered those memories with a smile and felt thankful that I had them.

Because of these 7 little ones, I will spend everyday doing just that. Remembering memories with a smile, and feeling grateful for the lives I have in my life. Family & friends, including pets, should be cherished everyday.

I took some more pictures of the puppies today. The little one pictured on the right is Sarah's only daughter. Yesterday, when I held her for the first time, I decide to name her "Trixie". I felt it was perfect since she was born a day after Twix's birthday. I changed the way it was spelled, but with all the excitement, I didn't think of how I would feel when her name was spoken. The words went through me and ripped my heart out. So, after giving it much thought, I decided to give the little girl a name of her own. - Naming her Lily Hope.

I'm already head over paws for these 7 little babies, especially for Lily Hope. I could watch them all day!

During one of their feedings, I took out my dear friend - The Camera - and got a video of the puppies and Sarah. I hope you all enjoy it.

In a Garden of Beauty

My Uncle's Home is filled with pretty flowers. When I saw these lovely roses blooming, I couldn't grab the camera fast enough. I just love taking pictures ..especially of nature. It is one of the very few things that brings me joy.

These pictures are for Twix & Laurel..

A Birthday and Anniversary ~

Two events today, and there's nothing special about remembering them. Twix would have been five years old today if she was with me. I don't know if she's alive or not. I want to believe she is ..but I don't know. - We lived in area with coyotes, and during that time, there was also large construction trucks passing by daily. She was either stolen or killed.

Today is also the one year Anniversary of Laurel's passing. She died suddenly last year, leaving behind her two cats and her dog. - Aldo, Tess, and Noelle -Plus many, many friends who miss her dearly. Aldo & Noelle, through the help of many people on Catster, had found new loving homes. Tess went missing and has yet to be found. I pray she has been found by a loving family, and is happy & well.

(Aldo's new owner is going through some hard times at the moment and needs help with vet bills for Aldo. If anyone who is reading this is a Catster member and is not a member at "Q4Aldo", please click on the link and join. ~Click Here~)

I miss Twix & my Friend so much. Losing them both has been so hard. Losing Twix in April, and Laurel a month after. It all feels like yesterday to me.
