A four-day weekend comes to an end with some much needed rain, and feeling all rested up.
|~Jake cooling off~|
Good friends camping in nearby Harpers Ferry invited us over for dinner one evening. After dinner, despite the warm temperatures, we all enjoyed sitting around a small campfire and eating a few s'mores --It has been years since I made and had one. They are as good as I remember.
The dogs are all in good spirits. The 'doodle, Max, is not just a cute face, he's actually quite a character that makes great sport out of chasing the cats.
Our newest arrival, Diezel is also doing well. He's all settled in and knows the routine and his way around the yard and the house. He's a really nice dog that has bonded with Carl. He is so happy when he comes home, and follows him everywhere, and barks when he can't find him.
|~Deizel and George~|
Deizel is not totally blind because he seems to be able to see some things when the light is bright. Lab Rescue has approved a visit for him to see a Veterinary Opthamologist, so I'll set that up this week.
Sheba's loss will take a little time to get over. Thank-you all for your kind and comforting words, and for sharing her loss with us.
I think we're going to be okay.
You got Scottie, you're going be OK.ReplyDelete
Hello, I am glad you will all be Ok. I just love the cute Charlie. Deizel seems to be fitting in nicely. The smores sounds yummy. Adorable furbabies and photos. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week ahead!ReplyDelete
Crikey ... It's good to hear you are all doing ok??? Life goes on I guess. Todd's happy face makes me happy. I bet he makes all of you happy too, aye?ReplyDelete

but soldiering on is what you're about.
our hearts to yours. always.
and i love that YOU love each individual personality of all your family. the pictures are wonderful!
and to end with todd... well. enough said!
much love. ♥
I love that Deizel loves Carl so much! I'd love to see him barking for him! I usually read your blog from my email when they arrive, so I'm unable to comment directly on here, but today I decided to come "straight to the source," so I'm able to say hello! I love you, Kimmie! We must do lunch one of these days! EileenReplyDelete
Glad to hear things are going well especially with your new additions. It would be great to see if the vet could do anything to improve Deizel's sight.ReplyDelete
Its hard to be strong and brave. debReplyDelete
I know it's always hard at first, but yes, you will all be okay. Deizel seeing an ophthalmologist ... what can they do? He sure looks to be a sweetie.ReplyDelete
So Max likes the kitties - have they taught him a lesson yet?
How wonderful to hear that Deizel is fitting in well and already has developed a loyalty to Carl. Your stories and pictures of the dogs are always lovely to read.ReplyDelete
(((hugs))) you are extremely strong and brave DakotasDenReplyDelete
It's good to hear that you are okay, Kim. With all those other gorgeous dogs around, it would be difficult not to be consoled by their company.ReplyDelete
Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel - Mom too
It takes time, but Sheba would want you all to be OK. Nice to hear the news on Diezel still having some sight. That will give him some time to adjust to his new environment in the event he loses more sight. Thanks to you for all you do.ReplyDelete
Woos - Ciara and Lightning
Don't know about goldens, but scotties just go with the flow....ReplyDelete
Ok is a good start to the healing, and Sheba would want you to carry on in her memory. Hope that eyesight can be improved, Kim, your huge heart and all the love and care for your canine family shows in their faces, every one.ReplyDelete
Todd won't have it any other way. God bless you all. ♥ReplyDelete
I love that 'doodle Max. Looks like a Disney dog. I've always loved the idea of s'mores more than the actual eating of them. Wouldn't it be wonderful if there is something to improve Diezel's vision?ReplyDelete
Thinking of you.ReplyDelete
Yes, you will be ok.
You've got Todd and the others to be OK for.
There is still so much love in your home, we are sure that will help.ReplyDelete
Lovely photos . Glad you all had a nice weekend ! Thanks for sharing . Have a good week !ReplyDelete
With Todd around, everything is OK! Mischief and humor conquer all!ReplyDelete
Dear Kim,, remember I say,, even angels cry,ReplyDelete
I want you all to be okay., So much happens at Golden Pines,, and my words seem so inadequate,, because I wish,,,, I could fix all this sadness but I cant.
Its very interesting to hear about Deizel,,, and how he gets around,,,following the other dogs, and waiting for Carl. That is beautiful.
And I am glad you got to sit around a campfire with friends, and have smores..
I am so so sorry to hear about Sheba. My thoughts are with you all!ReplyDelete

I think Todd is saying . . . "I've got you mom!"ReplyDelete
I've thought about you often these past days . . .
My caring for you and your husband . . .
I hope the Opthamologist will be able to help Diezel! You sure have your hands full. With the new additions, I am pleased to hear everybody is getting along and that they like each other! Never a dull moment!!ReplyDelete
you are one of my heroesReplyDelete
Glad to see all is well with you and your tribe.ReplyDelete
I just learned about Sheba and I am so sorry for your loss. She was one of the old dogs that I remember for years of following your blog and I feel sad that she is gone. But it was comforting for me to read that she was happy on her last day and wanted to play with you. So sweet, such a lovely smile she had. Take care.ReplyDelete
Hi Kim, I just read about Sheba's passing. I know how much it hurts to lose a special dog. She had a good life with you and was happy. It doesn't make it any easier for you though. RIP Sheba.ReplyDelete
Morning, you are my angel Kim, love you and all you fur babies.Hugs Francine.ReplyDelete
Love seeing Max and Charlie together. I know how hard it is to spring back after so many losses. I feel the weight more each year.ReplyDelete
