I’ve struggled all morning ….do I post this on my blog or do I keep it private. I think I said that a few months ago with Chase’s surgery.  It’s a balancing act trying to figure out how much personal stuff to share.  My family sometimes thinks I’m crazy.  

Now that I’ve got all the explaining out of the way …. I’ll get to it 🙁  

Yesterday our little Sissy went to puppy heaven. 

My heart is totally broken.  Each of our pets have such different personalities and Sissy was the one that just made you laugh.  She was always starring at me …always running around.  She barked at everything and although that drove me crazy at times …. now there’s a horrible quietness. 

We had many names for her besides Sissy … Pom Pom, Pork Chop, Little Bit, Tip Toes …. & probably a few that I can’t think of right now.

Here’s a picture of her and I a couple days ago.


And one of just her looking out the door….one of the things she did often!!


I’m not going to be working much over the next few days …but I’ll do my best to make something happen next week.

Have a great weekend and thanks for understanding!!

p.s. Yes …. 2011 has really been an awful year and I’ve had more than my share of hardship & grief ….but as painful as all this is.  I have my family & friends and we still have so much to be thankful for.  Watching the news confirms it daily!!
