New Years Blues
Meet Murphy...a wonderful rescue dog who healed the hearts of some very special people who lost their previous beloved dog, Oscar to a sudden illness. How could a face like Murphy's NOT help someone!? Cutie pie!
And speaking of hearts that need healing...I am in the doggie dumps because my sweet Maisie is dealing with yet another medical setback. She broke her toe while we were playing ball last Wednesday and now has to wear a cast for six-eight weeks. We've had this wonderful dog for six short weeks and during that time she has been sidelined with kennel cough, abdominal surgery and now this. James and I feel so badly for her...we had just gotten the go-ahead for her to resume normal activities only a few days before this happened.
I have to think there is a reason we are all going through this or I would fall off my New Years branch and cry a big birdbath. Maisie is the sweetest, dearest dog...so why is this happening to her? I guess you can't really question why though or you drive yourself crazy. Instead, I need to hunker down and help her through this, keep her busy and happy and let time run it's course. Let's hope by Valentine's Day...Maisie can get this dang cast off and finally let her heart run free. In the meantime...where the heck is that kong?!
