Hailee passed away October 27, 2009 from kidney failure. She wasn't with us very long, but the time she was with us was so very special. We feel like there is a hole in our hearts, it's so painful right now. I miss her so much and wish I could just hold her one more time. I hope she knows how loved she was. I feel like we were so lucky to have had her in our lives. Even if it wasn't for a very long time. She was the kindest, sweetest, most gentle girl you'd ever meet. Oh my God I just miss her so bad. Rest now baby girl. All your pain is gone now. Mommy loves you.


To my new Mommy... love, Hailee

One by One, they pass by my cage,
Too old, too worn, too broken, no way.
Way past her time, she can't run and play.
Then they shake their heads slowly and go on their way.

A little old lady, arthritic and sore,
It seems I am not wanted anymore.
I once had a home, I once had a bed,
A place that was warm, and where I was fed.

Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail.
Who wants a dog so old and so frail?
My family decided I didn't belong,
I got in their way, my attitude was wrong.

Whatever excuse they made in their head,
Can't justify how they left me for dead.
Now I sit in this cage, where day after day,
The younger dogs get adopted away.

When I had almost come to the end of my rope,
You saw my face, and I finally had hope.
You saw thru the grey, and the legs bent with age,
And felt I still had life beyond this cage.

You took me home, gave me food and a bed,
And shared your own pillow with my poor tired head.
We snuggle and play, and you talk to me low,
You love me so dearly, you want me to know.

I may have lived most of my life with another,
But you outshine them with a love so much stronger.
And I promise to return all the love I can give,
To you, my dear person, as long as I live.

I may be with you for a week, or for years,
We will share many smiles, you will no doubt shed tears.
And when the time comes that God deems I must leave,
I know you will cry and your heart ... it will grieve.

And when I arrive at the Bridge, all brand new,
My thoughts and my heart will still be with you.
And I will brag to all who will hear,
Of the person who made my last days so dear.

This is really bad. Daddy is in China until Monday. Mom got home from the shelter and fed us, then took a shower. While she was in there, we all heard this noise and started barking. Mom thought it was the sprinklers turning on. When she got out of the shower, water was pouring in from the ceiling!!! She ran upstairs, completely nakey, and found what it was. The toilet up there, the hose came off the wall and was FURIOUSLY spraying water everywhere!!! That bathroom and the billiard room was really flooded! The billiard room is wood floor that Daddy put in by himself. He's not gonna be happy.

So, Mom turned off the valve and got on the computer to call some damage people. While we waited for them,. Mom tried to get as much water up as she could with her hoover. The guys came, and now there are big fans and noisy things all over the place and I'm scared!

Mom says we have to sleep upstairs in a spare room tonight. It's really loud in here. Water was dripping from the ceilings in the master bathroom and the kitchen. Mom is really "tweaked", she says.

At least she gave us some boneys to chew on to take our minds off of it.

We had baths today! I love baths! Mom scrubs me really good, like getting a massage. I even get into the tub for her all by myself and stand like a really good girl while she shampoos! Then I get out and she towel dries me. Then I go downstairs and we all get our ears cleaned. I even let Mom do that now! Then after all that... COOKIES!!!!
I love my life!

I've been tagged by my pal Hank TD !

Here are the rules of the game!

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!

7 more facts about me:

1. I can be a bit clumsy at times, tripping over my own four feet, and have been known to run into a few walls.

2. I can clear a room with my "boompers"!

3. My favorite place in the house is on my very own doggie bed in the living room.

4. I make huge messes on the carpet when I eat treats.

5. I get upset when left alone outside, even if it's for a second.

6. I sometimes watch TV. This makes Mom and Dad laugh.

7. I know where Mom is at all times, and will follow her room to room.

I'm tagging...

I sure am loved. When Mom left us at Miss Lou's house, I was pretty upset. For the first two days I didn't eat, and Miss Lou was really worried. But I felt a little better knowing that Nani and Shaela were there. So I settled down and started eating again. Miss Lou has a weird sounding telephone. I howled everytime it rang! So she unplugged that one. I guess she didn't find it as funny as my Mommy would have. We stayed for a week and then all of a sudden Mom was back! We gave her a noisy welcome and she took us home! Shaela said she always comes back but I wasn't sure. It is so nice to be wanted and missed and loved. I'm back in my very own bed, snoring and dreaming happy dreams. It's so nice to be HOME!


We're going on vacation

Shaela, Nani and I are taking a little vacation at Miss Lou's house. I don't think I'll be upset, so long as my new sibs are with me. It will be nice to stay in a house and not a noisy kennel. I'll miss Mom though. And we are also going to be wondering about poor little Teddi Sue the whole time we are gone. Mom keeps praying for her. And the first thing she does every morning and evening is check the forums. She said Miss Blaire will have to check for her and keep us posted.

See you in a week, Dogsters! I'll miss you!

K.C. Got Adopted!!!

Well, they took really good care of K.C. and he got all better. And he got adopted right away!!! He now has his very own boy to play with him and love him! FINALLY! He really deserved it! I am so happy for him, he was always so sweet to me at the shelter.

Yesterday we got baths! I don't mind it so much, I even get into the tub all by myself! Then we get our ears cleaned, and get cookies! Mom is great! I also let Mom cut my nails yesterday for the first time! Even though Daddy had to hold me down. But I only struggled a couple of times, and was very good! We all got brushed out this morning and had a nice walk.

I am feeling so much better. Must of been all of the prayers I got. I am eating, drinking, I have energy, I even gained weight! Life is great now. I am so lucky to be here, but Mom says she is so lucky to have me here!


Poor K.C.

My old pal, K.C. from the shelter is not doing very good. He's been there so long, I don't blame him. He was rushed to the vet yesterday with 103.8 temp and labored breathing. The vet took x-rays and found a spot on his lungs. He says it looks like trauma, as if K.C. were hit by a car! Well, that's impossible, so the only thing we can think of is they were getting a little too rough in the play area. I hope he gets better and it isn't anything serious. Mom picked him up from the vet and took him back to the shelter. She says he was really feeling bad. She wished she could have taken him home just for the night, but Dad, of course, said no. Mom will go check on him today. I wish someone could just foster him untill he gets better. He's a GSD, but he's really small. Poor K.C. He is losing even more weight.

We will be praying for him.
