Hey everyone. I know it's been so long since I've updated you all on Dallas, but she got so much better and I knew it would be temporary and I wanted to spend as much time with her as I could. I'm very very sad to tell you all that our sweet little Dallas has passed away. She died on Thanksgiving day 2008. This was one of the very hardest days I have ever had. Dallas was such a good girl. She was the sweetest little dog I have ever known. She was a tremendous fighter and defied the odds. She had lived a year and 8 months longer than any vet said she would. In September she had her 5th birthday. Even on her last day, she was lovable and so sweet. She will be missed more than anyone could ever imagine. Thank you all for the continued prayers for her and our family. I know that without all of your prayers that she wouldnt have made it as long as she did with as much happiness as she had. Thank you, Dallas' family

i started to get sick about December. i couldnt run, jump, and was having trouble eating my food and barking. my mom and dad took me to the vet and they did a bunch of blood tests that all came back negative. they sent us 4 hours north to a BIG hospital and did more tests and found that my muscle tissue was dying and there was no cure. i couldnt eat at all by this time and the vets thought that a feeding tube was the only way i could get the nutrients and meds i needed to survive. so i get my feeding tube put in, by this time it was at the end of January. i had lost about 7 pounds, i only weighed 8 puonds then! the last time i went for a check up, about the middle of febuary, the vets gave me about 3 weeks to live. we were all devistated, but i was strong. i was determined to show them all wrong. i worked and worked at trying to get stronger. and soon i could jump on the couch and bark a little squeaky bark. mom and dad kept telling me that i was so brave and strong and that i could beat this and to never give up. i believed them with all my heart. i knew i could beat this. i knew it was show time the day mom gave me real can food. i had to prove that i could swallow it all. i did it! we were all so excited. i was getting stronger and now i could eat on my own. never again did i want to be fed through the tube! it has been about a month and a half and i am eating about 3 cans a day and gaining my weight back. i can run, jump, bark and play almost just like i used to. some times its hard for me to jump on tall things, but i keep trying and i eventually get it! its been a struggle, but i have done it! i have survived against all odds. its a miracle! and i am living proof that prayer and love works. God has heard everyones prayers and seen the amazing love from my family and he has saved me. and i am forever grateful for this second chance. ;) i want to thank everyone who has prayed for us and sent love our way. without you, i dont think i could have had the strength to get though this all. i love each and every one of you. many kisses and tail wags. ;)


A New House!!!!

So we have finally moved into this house that momma and daddy have been talking about. It is SO big! and I love it! It was a bit scary at first and I didn't want to go into any of the bathrooms, but I am ok with it all now. I love to lay on the floor in daddy's entertainment room where the sun shines on the floor. It's so warm there. Austin says I have to help him protect the house because it is so big and we are so small that he needs my help. I am excited to have a job to do around the house. Daddy bought new furniture for his room and i have found my new favorite spot: the ottoman. Its soft and the heater blows right on it! I love it here!
