My sister Maggie turned 77 today, or in human years 11.

She is really getting grouchy in her old age and we tried so hard to get a picture of her…She would not smile for anything!  Then mom snapped on if her in the corner.


Happy Birthday Maggie, you have made today a true Tail Waggin’ Wednesday!

Last weeks doggy cupcakes were a great success.

Before they went in the oven.  
Don't you love the baking cups Mom used.  They are by Paula Deen of course.

Here is my cupcake all decorated.  I was so excited I could not wait for brother to get home so we could celebrate.

As soon as Mom said dig in I was all over this morsel of goodness.

Tilda was trying to creep on my cupcake...totally not happening chica.

Here is a video of me devouring it....My mom tends to talk to me like I am a two year old.

This past Sunday was National Pet Memorial Day.  

If you missed it take some time today and remember your pet's that have gone to the great pet playground in the sky.  

Can you imagine a heaven without pets?
There is a very special place where beloved pets go after they die. This is only a temporary location. But there are trees and grass and lakes, and everything they love. Here they can play and eat and sleep, even better than they did, before they died. Now, there are no aches or worries or dangers of any kind to trouble or threaten them. The only joy missing is their beloved human companion, you.
All health is restored completely, and all injuries are healed. Dogs and cats play with each other like youngsters, and they do not have time to feel lonely for you. They miss you, and with the special wisdom that animals have, they trust that this condition will get better. And they confidently wait as they frolic.
A wonderful day will come for each of them, when in the middle of playing they will suddenly feel something is different. And all their senses will be at the height of excitement and exuberance. They will sniff the air and look off in the distance where they recognize that dearly loved special presence. Then they will call out in elation, and with eyes shining and tail going wild, tear off at a full gallop, almost flying over the green grass.
Your expected arrival has been sensed, and now there is nothing that can keep the two of you apart, ever again. As you run toward each other the tears flow from your eyes. Your pet leaps into your arms, and you cling together in jubilant reunion. The joyous kisses are all over your face, and you kiss back, just as ecstatically. Your hands so lovingly caress once more the beloved fur, the head and neck and body you knew so well. And you look into each other’s loving eyes, and all those old, wonderful shared feelings are back, again.
And then something will call the both of you on, to a different field of warmth and nurture, where all the love you knew now comes to fruition. With your pet, you leave that special waiting area, walk into the main part of heaven, and begin a new existence there, together.
If you accept that pets can love us as much as we do them, then the logic is clear and cannot be denied. If you believe that there is a heaven for people, then they must be there, waiting for us, when we cross over. Heaven is love, and pets always share that with us.

Black Bear Surgery, Squeaker Transplant


Squeaker toys are like family.


When a squeaker needs to be replaced, it’s a big deal.

Squeaker transplants are major surgery.


I am a very concerned Chihuahua supervising the squeaker transplant surgery to make sure that Black Bear will come out feeling brand squeaking new.


Surgery was a success and I am very happy with the quick recovery time.
