Arrival Story:
We lost our 11 year old lab to cancer in June of 2004, it was a huge heartbreak and we weren't going to get another dog, but I really wanted one and I think my husband did too. We started looking into different breeds and decided that the Sheltie was the one we liked best. I went on the internet and found Speck at a Breeder not far from where we live. I looked at her picture on the net everyday for about a week and then we went and looked at her in person and it was love at first sight. Now she is the center of attention, all day, everyday, and that is how we like it.

Speck is a great dog and has brought so much joy and happiness into our lives. We just love her so much! She will always be treated like the princess she is. We can just look at her and she makes us smile.

OK so now I have to go to Dr. Cooks office every Monday to get weighed in...in front of people...mommy is gonna get it!!!! I went today and I am still doing good with my workouts, but I didn't really lose any weight this week. So I guess I have to work a little harder. Now I know why mommy used to get so aggrevated when she was on a diet!!!


Could I be any more humiliated?

Thanks mom for putting my workout video on the internet for everybody to see. Its not bad enough I have to workout every day, now everbody gets to make fun of me too! It isn't my fault that I am putting on weight - we live in the frozen north and I can't get outside to walk, so I have to use the treadmill! I hope nobody I know sees this!!!!


On the road again!

We just got back from a trip to Saint Joseph - from Minnesota. We were there for two weeks and I loved it there. We had so much fun. I got to see Benny, Doug and Diane. Mommy said we might get to see Bella, my sister, but we didn't get a chance to, maybe the next time we get to Saint Joseph I will get to see her. She is really nice, I saw her at the Sheltie Reunion and she was really quiet and seemed like she liked me a little bit. Aunt Jessica is coming over with Toby on Friday. Mommy and Aunt Jess are going to work on Toby's scrapbook. That should be fun.

Thats all to report for today.
