CONNOR--FOUR YEARS ALREADY!

 Connor came into rescue through a "back door."  He had been with another rescue and somehow he needed a new rescue-- we took him in.  I am not sure how this little boy got "stuck" in the middle, but he needed a new group to help him.
 He was such a sweet boy and we could not resist helping him to find a forever home.
 He found a wonderful home and lives a cuddled life now.
 His mom posted a few new pictures of him.   Look at this sweet face.
Connor's mom said she woke up to this sweet face this week-- he has been with her over four years now.   I love catching up with pictures and seeing how loved they are.    And I would really like to kiss that sweet face!

ABNER-- COMING TO THE PICNIC!

 Brody, Abner and Lily are coming to the picnic.  They come each year and I get to see Abner, who was my foster puppy.
 Abner gazes out the window of his house-- he is counting the days,  Can it be a week away already?
 Last year, he was there and they were all spiffy for the picnic.
 Lily will be in her pink bows, I'm sure.
 Brody may just nap through it all.
But, Abner will be alert and ready to meet people!   Hope you can come!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SUGAR BIT! TWO YEARS OLD!

(This isn't about Pekes, today.  It my youngest granddaughter's birthday, so I am sharing a story.)  
 It has been two years since Sugar Bit came into our lives.  
 Her brother was so excited!!   He was four years old.
 Some people may wonder-- "why does she post so many pictures of Sugar Bit?"
 I'll tell you a little story--
 Sugar Bit's Mama is my youngest daughter, Molly.  
 When Molly was five weeks ago (and my older daughter, Meghann was 3 1/2), my first husband was killed in a plane crash.
 Molly's first year was spent with a mom who was very sad most of the time.  
 I always wanted to get that first year back-- to give her more joy than she had.
 But, life doesn't usually give us that ability to have a "do-over."  
 Life moved on and I married again four years later-- to Matt.  
 He was totally Dad to our girls.  
 And we grew as a family and the girls had so much love.
 I still wished I could get that first year back to give Molly joy instead of tears.
 We had weddings of our daughters.
 Grandchildren showed up.
 We thought Beach Bit would be the last one since it did not look like any more would be arriving.
 And the, SURPRISE-- we found out another one was coming.
 Sugar Bit arrived two years ago today.
 And in Sugar Bit-- I got that "first year" back.
 I got to give all the love, every day to her.
 I was able to give her the laughter and joy that I was not able to give to Molly her first year.
 And now I've been able to do it for two years-- they live across the street, so I see them almost daily.
 It was as if, when God gave Sugar Bit to our family, He knew we were getting a chance to have that happy year-- and I was giving it to Molly's baby.
 The joy and laughter continue-- with Sugar Bit getting into adventures all the time.
 She is the most joyful child and everyone in our family adores her.   She was unexpected, a wonderful gift.
 She keeps us all entertained and loves us back immensely.
So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Sugar Bit!   You are a gift to all of us-- and we love you!!

MAZIE-- MASTER GARDENER

 Mazie came into rescue in July, 2012.  She was in a Maryland shelter and needed help.
 She settled in so well that her foster mom, Dee, decided to become her forever mom.
 Mazie showed a real talent for gardening!
 She really wanted to please her mom.
 She knew her mom had worked hard on the "Mazie" garden.
 Her mommy wanted the other garden to look good, too.
 There was already a garden for Pooh and for Girl-Girl, her Pekes that went to the Rainbow Bridge.
 Mazie and her mom worked together and look at what they did.
 Look how beautiful this one is!  Mazie was very proud of her work.
 I love the flowers.
 "Mazie's Garden"-- so special.
 What she did not like is that her mommy decided she needed to be cleaned up.  Off she went to the groomer.
Mazie is a lot cooler now with all that extra hair gone.
Gardening was fun-- even if she did have to have a bath after.  Great Job, Mazie!!
