Yesterday we announced that we're stepping down from being administrators for the Schnauzers Rule group. Our family has a lot going on right now and mom doesn't have time to get the job done. So after thinking about it and talking with Milly, we've decided to just be members in the group. It's with mixed feelings that we do that. We've really enjoyed helping all of the other members of the group. But we've made some very good friends and that has made it all worthwhile - you know who you are!!!!
My health is stable right now. Mom has been watching me and caring for me every day. Last weekend she missed 3 nights of sleep in a row. She has pretty much caught up now so that she has the energy to keep up with everyone besides me! She has worked really hard to help me recover. We're going to see Dr. Porte soon to discuss where we go from here.
We worry about Murphy every day. His health is up and down too. I guess we're becoming senior citizens now. We certainly talk about our health & poops every day - BOL!!! Who would've thought that's how it would be. Big smooches to you Murphy, my man. I love you just the way you are.
Tot has seemed to recover nicely. We're really thankful for that. Maybe she won't have to talk about poop anymore - BOL!!!
This was the message about stepping down. Everyone has been really nice about it. I've received a lot of great pmails and presents and messages in the group.
Hi to all members of Schnauzers Rule,
I have decided to step down from my position as admin in our group. I had shared with Milly last December that it was my intention to do this after the beginning of the year. Although she and others encouraged me to hang in, life is too busy to make the time commitment it takes to do this job.
I've had some wonderful times with this group. I joined Dogster right after my Annie had crossed the Rainbow Bridge. It was a really difficult time for me. I couldn't talk about it for a while, so I decided to find some fun with fellow schnauzers with Georgie. And boy have I had fun. This group has brought laughter, tears, friendship and eventually a lot of work!!! It helped me work through my grief and opened my heart fully again, so Finnegan & now Winston could join our family. Thank you all for that! I've enjoyed sharing the fun and information everyone had to offer. As far as admin duties, I started out by asking Milly's mom if I could add our birthdays to the events calendar since the group wanted that. I thought it would be a one time assignment then I would be done. But as our dear Milly had to spend less time with the group due to her own illness, I tried to step in and help her mother, maintaining her remarkable way of offering friendliness & helpfulness. The group has grown, admin has grown, there is so much going on now. What a wonderful sight and site!!! I've been dealing alot with my own Georgie's health issues in the last few months and it's led me to step back and reprioritize my activities. And on the human side, I'm about to be a grandmother for the first time! So our family has a lot going on and to look forward to in the future.
Thank you for your support and ideas along the way. Thank you Milly for letting me help you. Thanks to our other admin Samson & Maddie. It has been wonderful providing some of the leadership for the group, but it's time to step back! I'll still participate in the group though. I couldn't do without Schnauzers Rule!
