Comfort One

Hello to all my friends.
 My Grandma is not doing well and my mom has had to rearrange her work schedule to half time so she can keep her mom at home as she can no longer tolerate going to adult day care.  She has a lovely young lady that takes care of her for four hours a day while she goes to work at a nearby school.  Hospice has been contacted and Grandma is kept comfortable with Morphine and Ativan.
Times are hard for my mom right now and I am working hard to keep her happy.  She tells me I am doing a great job.
We lost Cleo our calico cat last weekend.  She had a stroke and lost function of her backside and had to be put to rest.  They say things happen in threes.  Thank you all for your well wishes.  You are kind and supportive and we love you all.
Mom says she will get back to posting soon, we miss you!

Pot of Gold?


                                        We followed the rainbow and found our pot....

                                                  It was not what we had been hoping for

May the lick of the Irish be with you!

May the road rise up to meet you.
                                 May the wind always be at your back.
                                                                  May the sun shine warm upon your face,
                                                                                                   and rains fall soft upon your fields.
                                                                                                                          And until we meet again,
                                                                                                                                       May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!!

Adopt a pet today! Pet Finder Promo Day


Petfinder Adopt-the-Internet Day

Adoption is not just for dogs and or cats...
Here's Cocoa!
Cocoa and Bianca were privately bred sisters who are proud to be part of the ferret adrenal study. Bianca has now passed away leaving Cocoa behind. Although a senior now at 6, she is still a feisty girl and loves to play.  She resides in Washington State.

Here is another great Washington State winner looking for a home on Petfinder...


Anatolian Shepherd/Dalmatian Mix: An adoptable dog in North Bend, WA

CONTACT: i_worshipa7x@hotmail.com Dominio is a 1 1/2 year old 40 lb. sweetheart looking for a loving forever home. He is deaf and knows hand signals for sit, lay down and is working on stay. He loves playing with other dogs at the dog park and cuddling with his family. He's a perfect boy when he goes to Petco to get his nails clipped. Would you consider being his forever family? Domino would be best in a home without toddlers who might not understand Domino's deafness.


Australian Shepherd: An adoptable dog in Kent, WA

Dexter is one of the MARS Mini Aussies that was used in filming Marley & Me 2, release date June 2011. Mr. Dexter is for a serious Aussie fan only! At about 17 months old, he's super smart, high drive, and has potential with a capital P. Dexter easily learns anything asked of him, has excellent obedience skills, and quite a repertoire of tricks. But that's not enough for Dexter - he craves positive training sessions and would excel in Rally-Obedience or Agility. Dexter needs a lot of exercise daily, as well as mental stimulation. He easily hikes for two hours with other dogs, then after a nap - he's good to go again! Unfortunately Dexter's drive was stronger than his body and he recently had corrective knee surgery for a severe luxating patella. Dexter is on the road to 100% recovery, and he'll be able to run, jump and play with ease once his knee is fully recovered. He is already back to hiking an hour an hour a day. Dexter will also be able to do agility starting in September 2011, and his knee should never bother him again. Dexter loves to run with other dogs, or play fetch outside. He has high food and toy drive which is excellent for training! He can also settle nicely and amuse himself around the house, or cuddle up and watch a movie with you. Dexter currently lives peacefully with several other dogs, and hikes with other dogs with no issues. Dexter has been to doggy daycare and he has his own fan club among the staff. Dexter is a fantastic dog, who will make anyone proud - but sadly Dexter does have a few issues. He has moderate separation anxiety, meaning he cannot be left alone for long periods of time. He can handle up to one hour left alone in the house with the other dogs before he starts to get anxious. He is fine if he can ride around in your vehicle with you. Therefore, shopping and dining aren't a problem if Dexter is hanging out in the car, which is great - until the hot summer months. If you are interested in adopting Dexter please consider that he will need to go to work with you, or to doggy daycare when unable to be with you. Dexter is crate trained and is quiet in his crate in the care. Hes fine crated at home or at the office as long as you are close by. Since Dexter likes to go everywhere with his foster mom, we have worked very hard to make sure Dexter is polite and well behaved in public. He can even hold a long down-stay in busy public places. Dexter shows a keen interest in cats. He has learned to not get too close but he is not to be trusted around cats who are not totally comfortable around dogs. Dexter is also wary of young children - when they run fast it startles him and he barks at them. Dexter happily takes treats from calm, quiet kids, but he would not be happy in a home with kids, or where kids are frequent visitors. Dexter would do best in an active home that has a keen interest in dog training. He is a VERY rewarding dog to work with!

The adoption donation is $250. All dogs are microchipped, spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccines, and accompanied by all available vet records. Each dog comes with a martingale collarnylon lead,backup slip leadclicker with instructions, stainless steel collar ID hang tag, and a Fido's Farm $25 Gift Certificate. Post-adoption support is also provided.   Wow! What an amazing dog!
Petfinder is full of wonderful pets just waiting for you!  Adopt today!

stopper pad guards


Some of you may remember that I tore open my stopper pad in early February and had to have it stitched back together and limit my boundless energy for three weeks.   Here is my pad after the three weeks...

                                            And now after a month it is looking really good...

Since I tend to scrape them up routinely mom has found me some Stopper Pad Guards. She bought these but thinks she will make my next pair as they look pretty easy.

                                             These are popular with the agility and fly ball dogs.

We tested them out at the dog park and they are pretty comfy. I left them alone and they stayed on with no problem.

I think they look pretty sharp and mom says they were a conversation piece at the park because no other dog had a pair.

                 So for you rough and tumble scramblers out there this may be the ticket for you too!

Flashback Friday


                                         Here is my little stuffed toy at nine weeks of age.

                                                             I just love this shot.

                                 The cats are thinkin'  "Oh man, what has she drug home this time!"

                                                                 What a silly boy!

                                                      Cutest flower in the garden!

                                              Here he is charming the neighbor kids.

What great memories!  Now for something else awesome....

When the Boss goes out of town.  Who's up for a three hour lunch???

A walk in the woods always cheers us up...


                          And good friends make it even better.  Finn and Tally joined us today.

Still sunny and cold with plenty of snow.

                                                    Woo Hoo, got a terrier on my tail~

    Speaking of terriers, two Airedales live behind this fence.  Wishing it was Wyatt and Stanzie!

                                                             Meet and greet on the trail.

                                      Catching up with an old friend and neighbor, Bazil.

                                       You take the high road and I'll take the low road...

                                                Hey mom, did you bring your ice skates?

                                                    Finn's got 3 outta four booties on.

                                                                   Big enough for two.

                                                             Sharing is a good thing!

Yup, we are doing just fine and want to thank all of you for you kind words.  We really appreciate it. 

and now for another awesome thing...

The wonderful and intoxicating smell of baking bread, not to mention the first bite of that warm bread slathered in butter...ahhhh.

I'm still here!


Hi friends, sorry to be away for such a long time but my dads mom went to heaven.  Things have been topsy tervy around here.
Mom had been sick but is feeling better and my Grandma that lives with us was just in the ER and also doing better.   Even dad has a bad cold from the airplane flight. 

Mom says things are getting better now and although I am sad for dad and his sister we still have things to be thankful for.
