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...

Pawsitively Wild Pet Show

We attended the Pawsitively Wild Pet Show. They announced the Canine Idol Winners there. We were late for that, but just as well, because Emma was unfortunately not one of the top 5 winners. Too bad. But she is still a winner in my eyes.

You can see the winning idols here. A couple of the stories just break my heart. Maybe I should've tried to gain sympathy votes by telling the story of Emma's docked tail! But seriously, congratulations to all the winners!!

The Pawsitively Wild Pet Show wasn't very wild at all, but it was a good opportunity for Emma to get out and be around other dogs and people. She is not used to crowds and decided to be a suck. Here's how she spent most of the time there:

Yes, That's right.... She's clinging to Mommy and Daddy. In fact, she was trying to climb up into our arms! I have never seen her like that before. But I gotta admit, it felt nice to know that she wanted to be with us!

Several people stopped us to ask us what kind of dog she is, and I noticed several more looking at her and saying "aw, look at that dog!" Lip Reading really comes in handy sometimes!

There were several vendors representing pet items and/or services. We got a few free samples.

We noticed a couple 1st Place ribbons up on the stage as we walked by. Emma jumped up all on her own, so I decided to take some photos of her near the ribbons. My camera does not take very good indoor photos. I can't seem to figure out the best setting. But, anyway, here's the best shot I could get that wasn't too blurry! Hopefully next year the photo will be legit!

Thank you again to everyone who voted!!! We appreciate your cheerleading and support!

OH, Emma! I'm sorry you didn't win. I think you are the best doggy paws down!

Big Hugs to you and your mommy and daddy!
