New Dogs

A couple of weeks before Mimi passed away, we had to put our Mitzi to sleep. She was a great girl, though "Mitzi had issues", as we always said. She came a long way from that first day we adopted her and she cried and ran around the house frightened.

Then a couple of months later we adopted a beautiful greyhound named Annie. We were cautiously optimistic that she and little Conan, our chihuahua would get along.

But after 3 weeks we realized it was not a match. So Annie went back to the rescue group to be adopted out again. We then rescued a 3 lb. chihuahua whom we named "Chibi" which means tiny in Japanese. They have become great friends and play off and on all day.

What A Year So Far!

The year 2009 has been an eventful one in our family. Dave's dad (Pa) went home to be with his Lord on Inauguration Day, January 20. My Mom (Mimi) also went home to be with her Lord on April 28. They are greatly missed and greatly loved and appreciated.
