Pink Rules.



It was a sad day yesterday as we had to put our old dog Balto to sleep. Balto came to us at age 12 as a rescue. His elderly owner had died. He's been a handful in the sense that he hated the car, the vet, the stairs, other peoples house, having his nails cut and a few other things. He was, however, a sweet loving dog who recently survived being attacked by a German Shepherd. RIP old boy. We love you.

In Happier news, DIL went into hospital to have her breech baby turned 3 weeks before due date and ended up with a baby an hour later. We have our second little grand daughter and we are so happy and excited for Brandon, Tray and our dear Emma. They sent a video of Emma meeting her new sister and I've watched it 5 times and cried 5 times. No name yet for bubbie.

  3. Oh I remember all the earlier posts about Balto. So sorry to hear that but he certainly did have a great life being cared for by you and your family after his former owner. Life has a way of taking and giving all at the same time. Congratulations.

  13. Not quite sure how I missed this when you first posted it. Our dear Monty had to be 'put to sleep' on the 9th Feb, so we know the pain. Time heals, but we never forget them. Cro x

  14. I've had my head in the sand! So glad I checked in to see the happy news of your second granddaughter! Fabulous! I am sorry to hear about Balto. What a lucky dog he was to have you in his sunset years. I hope all is well with your family. We are doing fine in the OC. Moved again last month. All good. Ann
