For some reason, this week, I have been missing my Dixie girl. Maybe it's because we are down to just 2 dogs right now. Other than an occasional vet visit, we haven't had only 2 dogs in our house for almost 8 years now. It seems that my fosters or visitors want to snuggle with me more than my own dogs. Jax would always cuddle with me on the floor at night. Buddy would also lay in your lap on the couch. Sadie won't lay with me. Tom will lay close to you, but he really doesn't want you touching him.

Meet Felicia. Next weekend, she will be coming for a sleepover. She was adopted about 2 months ago and is currently an only dog. She is super sweet and I can't wait for her to stay with us. She is shy, like my Tom. She just turned 8 years old and this family is her first real family! She was a brood mom. Not sure how many litters she produced. Her family loves her so much and she has a wonderful home. But I'm sure glad she will be with us this weekend.

People look at me like I'm crazy when I say I miss having the 3rd dog around. Heck, at one point a couple of months ago, we had 5 dogs here.

If you have followed me for a while, you might remember Bluto. He recently became very ill. This time last week, he was knocking on death's door. Finally after almost 10 days of being seriously ill, his blood work came back positive for Lyme's disease. This guy has been through so much, I was just about heart broken thinking that he wouldn't make it. He is on the mend, finally. He could still use lots of white light and positive thoughts.

Buddy continues to improve. He is on very restricted activity and is being a very good boy. Not sure when he will be able to come back here, but I miss that goofy guy too!


  1. Sadie looks like a sweetheart! I know what you mean about that empty feeling, although I am content with the four we have now. The inn is full and it's not crowded. I hope Buddy keeps getting better, poor guy!

  2. What a pretty name for a pretty girl! It's lovely that she has found her forever home and I'm sure you will enjoy her visiting you. Part of me would love another Greyhound but there's only 1 of me and I think 2 dogs is enough, I've only got 2 hands to pat, one for each dog:) Glad to hear Buddy is still improving. I never 'met' Bluto but am sending good thoughts to him for his recovery.
