So Many Thanks In Order, Part I

I haven't blogged much and for the first time in a while I really have gotten behind in reading blogs. For that, I'm getting awards and a cool pressie. Maybe I should just shut up all the time. Nah! That's not going to happen. But there are so many thanks in order I thought I better do them it two evenings. Awards tomorrow, I hope, pressie and other business tonight.

I want to say a BIG thank you to J.D., Max and their Mom for all the work they've done and are still doing on the auction for Shelby. I feel awful about not getting online to bid on something, but a lot of the things we put up sold, so I'm happy about that and even happier that the auction really did raise a considerable contribution to Shelby's care.

Now I have to tell you about the big surprise I got yesterday. I got mail! I generally get much better mail than my humans do and this was no exception.

I've got mail!

Someone bring my reading glasses!
It was from my Rhodesian Ridgeback furiend, Boomer Miller! Boomer sent me mail! How exciting is that? Very, very exciting!  So, what's in the envelope? I need to know.
This is pawfect! 
Boomer, how did you know? It's just what I needed!
To be honest, I like having a little brother. I kind of love Franklin. Maybe even a lot. But there are moments now and then when I remember what it was like being the sole canine center of my universe and sometimes I miss it. It kind of lifts my spirits to have this and  say, "Nyah, nyah!" at those moments. OK, I can be a bit of a bitch at times. Comes with the territory. Not that it's entirely true. I will always be top dog here as long as I'm on this side of the Bridge. I got that in writing just to be sure. But they probably love Franklin just as much. Just sort of differently, due to the fact that he's young and kind of goofy. But I don't have to tell him that, do I?
Oh, I feel right on top of my game again!
Thank you again so very much, Boomer. You are a thoughtful and kind Ridgeback and I'll be furever grateful.

I can't close this post out without expressing Get Well wishes for dear little Molly. She's sickies again, and fighting like a teeny tiger again, too. We are sending all the pawsitive vibes that we can, Molly. I hope you can feel them.


  1. I NEED one of those bandanas, living with two others! Can Franklin read?

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  2. Holy smokes! I got a bandanna from Boomer today, too, and mine is perfect for me, as well! You look great in yours!


  3. Hi Lola - We missed you! You look very nice in blue.

    Thanks for posting this for Molly. My heart is just breaking for Molly and her family ...

    Your pal, Pip

  4. We don't know Boomer, but isn't he just so nice to send you that package!

    Poor Miss Molly - we feel so badly for her. Our Dakota had Cushing's, we didn't know that about Molly. We have our paws crossed for her to be doing better very soon.

  12. Well, momma claims to love me and PeeWee equally but sometimes I am not so sure. You tell your mom that you should always get everything first what with being top dog and all. Equal but in an ordered kind of way is my motto.


  13. Woof! Woof! Great n Wonderful!!! Totally true ... "Mom Likes (LOVES) you the Best!!!" Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  14. Morning to you the Lovely Miss Lola!!!
    You are so right first born is always top dog. Franklin should thank you that he is in your home.It is because you were the purrfect dog so your humans knew they needed another puppy.

    Hugs Madi and Mom
