Goodbye You Old Dog

I know that you will be leaving us in the next few days and I can't be with you. This makes me so sad. I love you, you old dog, and I will miss you so much.

We will have to help you leave as I know it is hard for you to leave your family that you love. Please forgive us and know that you will always be a part of us now and forever. You have been such a good girl.

New Additions to our Pack
by: Tim Vinge


Just wanted to let you know that we have adopted two rescue dogs since you left.

A white lhasa apso named Chip. He had been severely abused. We picked him up at the dog shelter in Weyburn. Chip is Mom's big boy for sure.

We also adopted a Shih Tzu from an older lady who was going into a community care home and could not take her. Her name is Daisy and we affectionately refer to her as Daisy Doodle. She is 6 years old.

The vet and dog hair groomer in Fairview talked us into taking her. We love Mrs Doodle so much. She has a kind face and a great disposition. She is now part of the family as well.

So now we have a three pack -- Sophie Girl, Chip man and Daisy Doodle.
