Sunday night assortment

  • Pray for Heather, whose dog Bubba was stung by a bee or wasp and died this weekend. Young basset hound. I thought eight years was bad with losing Cub... Bubba was only two and a half.
  • I have a sore throat. I hope it goes away rather than inviting other strange symptoms over to play. I was sick last month. I don't want to be sick again this month.
  • Time really seems to be flying lately... or is it just me?
  • Talked with fellow RevGal Zorra this evening. Always a treat.
  • Photo for your viewing pleasure:

Both dogs, on the floor in The Alpha's study (hence the action figures in the background), with me being a good girl and having my devotional time. No dogs were hurt in this photo -- The Boy just prefers strange lounging poses, and he doesn't care if his paw is in the way. Our girl had about a month left when this picture was taken. Most of me is glad I didn't know that at the time.

What a sweet picture of the three of you (even if it's only part of you). I will remember your friend in my prayers this morning, and give my two an extra hug.

awww-that's so sad-will pray for your friend and you too-take evtra vidamins, sneak in a nap and let the ants eat the corn today, to their hearts content!

((Typist)) and ((Boy))
Guess we could throw the Alpha in, too...
Thinking cheery thoughts for all of you (including no ants in the corn...and btw, worms got the squash & zucchini while I was away--pics later.)

Remembering Heather today, and you too...
And that is a very sweet picture.
The Scientist says dogs only lounge on their backs like that if they feel completely secure. Given The Boy's history, that says a lot for y'all.
Love you--mean it!

prayers for everyone remembering beloved pets -
makes me shudder to think of losing one of mine. Hope you're feeling better

aw, what a great photo. i have one of oldmandog as my desktop wallpaper. he's so cute, and while it makes me sad and nostalgic, i enjoy the memories of taking him on our road trips.

how horrible for heather! i'll pray. take lots of vitamin c and drink stuff.

Diane said...

yes, what a lovely picture.

I will certainly be praying for Heather. Can't even imagine what that would be like -- only 2 1/2!

your girl and The Boy looked so sweet.

Wow. I didn't know that wasps were that deadly. I wonder if the basset was allergic, or sick, or dogs are especially vulnerable to wasp venom.
