A Campaign for the Sweetest Dog in the World

UPDATE:  5th June, 2014 

Thanks so much to the people who joined in to help me with my campaign!  I decided to cancel the campaign, mostly because my health worsened and I am no longer able to keep up with the necessary updates. 

I am truly grateful for the feedback and donations.  Ruthie is doing pretty well.  We haven’t figured out the best diet yet, but she’s hanging in there with my home cooked meals, mixed with the canned Hill’s ID. Continue reading

A Spring Break

I’ve been dreaming of a vacation.  I’ve gazed at beach houses and found a lovely little place.  Pets are allowed.  The building is a light pastel like the color of seashells.  The beach there is quiet, especially in springtime, and you can talk to locals at the coffee shop.  Surprisingly, the rent is quite reasonable. 

The only problem is that I can’t afford to take a vacation, so I’m going to see my mother. 

“You can nap and I’ll cook you three meals a day,” she told me last night. 

I don’t think any place on earth could offer me anything better! 


It’s almost time to start thinking about what you might plant in your garden. I encourage you to plant a few larval food plants so that you may get to watch a butterfly happen in your own backyard.

Beautiful Butterfly, Share your Magic!

I absoulutely LOVE this “Man of Action” pin/button so I purchased two at a very modest price from IconDoIt’s store on Zazzle.

I can’t wait to give them for Christmas presents.

Bloggers know how much other bloggers mean to us.  My friend Leslie, from her blog, IconDoIt, is a talented creative survivor!

Leslie has been an inspiration to me since I first discovered her blog.  I’m quite sure I would love her art even if I didn’t know what an awesome person she is.

Check out the “Man of Action” via the link above and click on image to visit IconDoIt, the blog.

IconDoIt also has some wonderful holiday cards.  My favorite so far is the “Sugar Plum Fairy.”

My first purchase was the “FenceSitter” poster and I gotta tell ya, it is fabulous!

With each purchase Zazzle offers coupons for your next purchase and a discount for you to offer a friend.


PS  This is shared from my heart, with love and appreciation for Leslie and her amazingly strong will to live.  I do not benefit in any way financially for sharing this with you.
