*****I really am...... I get to do the entry for the GIRLS~ page ;) *****
It's official....... I'm almost 9 mo.s old, just another week. Molly and Gracie had blood work done at the vet, this past Monday; just the routine testing to ck. on both of their liver issues. (& mom took a specimen for a UA to ck. on Gracie's kidney stuff) They got blood drawn, examined and weighed.
Momma says (to the dogtor) that I haven't been weighed in awhile and let's ck. ME! OMD! Molly weighed 7.4 1/2 & I weighed 7lbs 5 oz., just 1/2 oz. heavier than Molly, BOL! I'm truly a BIG girl now ;) I am shorter than her, but you won't hear me admit that again :)) Grace weighed 9.2 so I'm less than 2 lbs lighter than her! We think I'm mostly grown. We didn't know how big I'd get, being the runt, it coulda gone either way! My fur-Dad is 11 lbs. or more and fur-mom is 12 ish lbs. I'm feeling big stuff, according to da Mom and am constantly inciting one of my sistah's to play.
We EACH had an appt. with the opthamologist this past Thursday. It was my furst time. He said, although I looked pretty good, I have that ectopic silia, like both the Girls had (eyelashes growing on the inside of the eyelid) but it was just beginning and we'd keep an eye on that and otherwise I LQQK good!!! Yaaaaaay, no eyedrops fur moi! After the appointment, we went to Paws around Town, our fav pet boutique, fur a new toy. It was early in the morning and they were just opening, so Molly and I got out of the stroller and ran free with a fewof the employee's doggies. They all know us, so it was okay! Momma didn't allow us 2 be free for as long as I would have liked, but WOW, it was F -U-N, FUN!!! Gracie got passed around all da peeps, she doesn't like to join in with other doggies, BOL! Mommie brought our lunch, which we ate in the Tahoe & then had a walk, before we ran another errand in OKC, to get me some of my frozen raw diet medallions at a special little dog food store that looks like a little red school house. We napped right next to one another, in our crate, all the way home. It's been a very busy week. My puppy energy has been challenged, but that's okay~ I'm a Big Girl NOW!!
xoxo, Reporting fur the GIRLS~

*There is a God in the Post Office.
This is one of the kindest things I've ever experienced. I have no way to know who sent it, but there is a beautiful soul working in the dead letter office of the US postal service.
Our 14 year old dog, Abbey, died last month.The day after she died, my 4 year old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about ho w much she missed Abbey. She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her. I told her that I thought we could, so she dicta ted these words:
Will you please take care of my dog? She died yesterday and is with you in heaven. I miss her very much. I am happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick.
I hope you will play with her. She likes to play with balls and to swim. I am sending a picture of her so when you see her you will know that she is my dog. I really miss her.
We put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey and Meredith and addressed it to God/Heaven. We put our return address on it. Then Meredith pasted several stamps on the front of the envelope because she said it would take lots of stamps to get the letter all th e way to heaven. That afternoon she dropped it into the letter box at the post office. A few days later, she asked if God had gotten the letter yet. I told her that I th ought He had.
Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch addressed, 'To Meredith , in an unfamiliar hand. Meredith opened it. Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers called, 'When a Pet Dies.' Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God in its opened envelope. On the opposite page was the picture of Abbey & Meredith and this note:
Abbey arrived safely in heaven.
Having the picture was a big help. I r ecogni zed Abbey right away.
Abbey isn't sick anymore. Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart. Abbey loved being your dog. Since we don't need our bodies in heaven, I don't have any pockets to keep your picture in, so I am sending it back to you in this little book for you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by.
Thank you for the beautiful letter and thank your mother for helping you write it and sending it to me. What a wonderful mother you have. I picked her especially for you.
I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much.
By the way, I'm easy to find; I am wherever there is love.

Well, nothin has changed around here, BOL! Molly and I still boss each other around, BUT that lil squirt doesn't listen to a thing Molly says and lemme tell you~she tries to put IsaBella in her place, but it's NOT happening! She doesn't crawl all over me~I've never let her! :) I told Molly, she should have never started letting her do that... she's not taking any hints to stop.
We made her work to become one of "the Girls~" and I guess we'd have to admit, we don't know when it happened, but she DEF is one of us. Molly doesn't play with her a whole lot coz she crawls all over her and pulls her hair constantly and when Molly tells her off, she doesn't begin to listen. Me? I'm da boss and we play together, but she doesn't bother me constantly! I even let her chew on the hair on my back leg sometimes, mostly coz I'm sleepy at the time. She used to follow me everywhere, but she is an independent little tzu.
Thank dog fur that play pen of hers, or we might not get a nap, if ya know what I mean! IsaBella is getting bigger, but she's only about four and a half lbs. now, even though she thinks she is as big as we are, BOL! Slowly but surely, we're finding our way. I don't like when she tries to greet company before me~but when I gently put her in her place, she listens! I'm showing her the ropes, how it all works around here. I don't know why she's an energizer bunny~it's exhausting~I think Molly and I need a raise, BOL! (Mine should be da biggest though!)
