Sweet Maggie

I believe my sweet Maggie's life is coming to an end. During the past few weeks, she has become weaker, losing her balance, eating less, drinking more, falling down the stairs, losing a noticeable amount of weight, sunken eyeballs, smells rotten from the inside, and keeping her tail between her legs. This breaks my heart to see my sweet Maggie be this way. She is sleeping about 23 hours per day. I know that I'll need to make a very hard decision in the near future. I've made these decisions before with Melanie and Ginger (my Viszla and Boxer). I will not let Maggie suffer in pain and discomfort.

I snapped these photographs this morning.....

Watching your dog become old is the hardest part about being an dog lover.

Natalee's First Braids & Beads & Snap

Tonight I braided Natalee's hair into 6 tiny braids then added some beads and a snap (I couldn't thread the beads and was to tired to re-braid). I need alot of practice and Natalee's hair needs to be a little longer. The braids were small and hard to handle.

She sat in her highchair while watching My Little Pony with Charlee. She did great but she was ready to get out by the 6th braid.

.....a work in progress

Post-Party Fun

Who would have thought that three dollars worth of balloons would keep a 4 year old and an 11 month old occupied for almost one hour?

"Where did it go"

The best investment.

Today was a wonderful day. It began at 4:30 AM when Charlee came into my room to "snuggle". Charlee wanted some breakfast so we crawled out of bed and ate some Chocolate Cheerios. She liked that. We got ready and went to breakfast at IHOP with Grandma and Grandpa. Charlee loved her French Toast and Grandma's pancakes. After breakfast we went to Walmart for Birthday Balloons. Charlee picked out all the balloons and was very proud of herself. I think she did a great job.
We came home and played around the house while we waited for 4 O'clock for the PARTY!!!!!!
Charlee was so excited to have the family over for her BIRTHDAY PARTY. I think the pictures tell a thousand words.
It was off to bed at 8 O'clock. I'm ready to close my eyes and be off to dream land.
Happy Birthday Charlee!!!!!!

Getting Ready

Charlee decided that she needed to apply a little make-up to start her day.....

....after she looked in the mirror Charlee said, "It's a bit outside of the lines"
