A New Family Member.....

A new family member....

We now have a new family member....last November we discovered our beloved Chow Chow of 10 years was diagnosed with Hermangiosarcoma.  Basically this means a giant tumor in the abdomen.  It is terminal.  It was shocking and devastating.  Our family had to make a horrible choice that I would never wish on anyone.  My last act of love was to set him free.  I was crushed.

My 3 year old was also so sad...I couldn't make the hurt go away and if you are a parent, you know how that feels...HORRIBLE.  So, we decided to add a new family member and we love him.  He cannot ever replace our Chow Chow but we love him in a different way.  So is life.

Here are some photos:

 He is a Coton de Tulear, the royal dog of Madagascar.  This is a great link that explains the breed and it's rarity.  He's like 7 weeks old in these photos and he is so snuggly!

Check out the breeder where we located him...she is phenominal...she really cares about her animals and strives to re-home other animals in her area.  Thank you so much Cuddly Cotons!!!

I have actually made this little guy a royal doggie bed and I am will post my tutorial very soon.  Can't wait to show you!

I am sorry...

I am sorry....

I haven't been a very good blogger the past year.  I had such good intentions but it seems I wasn't too good at keeping my commitment to my blog.

Well, let's see....I could go into a tremendous explanation, but I don't know if that is the best thing to do.

I will say, I haven't had the best year.  I lost my father, in a very upsetting way.  I had to put my beloved dog to sleep after ten years as he was diagnosed with terminal cancer.  I also had my own scare with cancer but I am so blessed,  and I will be ok.

So, with that being said...I will go into more details later on perhaps...or maybe not, as dwelling on the past may not be the best healing process.

Nonetheless...I am glad to be back, and I have some projects I have been working on, that I can't wait to post.  I think things are going to be OK, and I am truly thankful for my blessings. =)
