Water Road

In my dream, I was sitting in a chair that was floating rapidly down what seemed to be a a water-filled street.

It was fast. I was passing people along the way. Some of them splashed water on me. I don’t know why.

I woke up out of breath with muscles clenched.

I interpret it as a good dream. I think it means that I’m on the fast track to success. Nothing can stop me.

Here’s Riley!

We got a new puppy. He’s 3/4 Chihuahua and 1/4 Boston Terrier. His name is Riley, and he’s adorable and lovable, and he’s a bit of a nut.

He’s about 8 weeks old, and he’s in the chewing phase of his life. I hope it’s a phase that will pass in a few weeks. He chews me and Ernie.  He wants to chew Sadie, but we don’t let him. I think he ate a small rock today.

Puppies are a lot of work, but we’ve fallen in love with Riley. He’s a welcome addition to our furry family.

 

Goodbye to Cammie


Cammie took a turn for the worse a few days ago.  She couldn’t keep any food down, and she had trouble getting around. It got worse the next day. She seemed to be having seizures, and we suspected she had a stroke. We decided it was time to let her go. We said goodbye on January 1st.

Cammie would have turned 15 this year. We think she might have made it past that, were it not for a tumor on her liver. The vet diagnosed the tumor in April of 2014. He said we could expect her to live another 3 to 6 months. She almost made it two more years! I think she stayed around for so long because of the all of the love she received from us. My husband was especially sweet on her, and I could tell that he was the light of her life. They were quite a pair.

We miss Cammie a lot. I find myself expecting to see her in her spot at the head of the bed when I go into the bedroom at night. When I walk through the garage to take Sadie out the side door, I imagine Cammie trotting across the floor and pausing to check if  there’s any leftover food in her dish.

We will always love our perfect little Cammie. It was an honor to have her in our little animal family.
