This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

Emma and Santa

We took Emma to see Santa today! :) Unfortunately, we have to wait a couple weeks to get the photos back. I can't wait to see how they turn out! I forgot to try and put the little hat on Emma, but she did have her Jingle Bell collar on. :) She sat still for the most part, and I think the camera guy captured her smiling. I hope so!

While we were waiting for our turn, we were in the big room with tons of dogs, and I think only 2 cats, and get this, a rat! Emma was mostly good, but she got scared a couple times, especially when a bigger dog walked by. When they got close to her (whether they were coming to her or not) she would bark as if to say "you don't scare me!" but you could see her shaking a bit. I think she was overwhelmed! She's never been around that many dogs in a small space like that before. The only other time she's been around that many dogs was at the Dog Party but it was outdoors and not that many dogs were very close at once. In Puppy Class, there was less than a dozen dogs and we were spread out across the room, and Emma was one of the bigger dogs in puppy class!

But on the whole she did well, and we were very proud of her. :) Looking forward to getting the pictures back!

Your comment on my blog made me laugh. I think the hiatus is good for all of us for the month!
Your dog sounds like mine. She's pretty choosy about her canine pals and gets a little aggressive when feeling pressured. Poor girl!I understand. Can't wait to see pix!
