That is great news. It is good to hear something nice for a change. Prayers are on the way.

Tell Harriet that chickens are a favorite food of Greyhounds. Right after wabbits!

My Fabricland membership will never allow me to run out of fabric! But now you mention it I don't have any dog prints.......

Gosh, a lot happened while I was busy with my Tropical Storm Isaac doings. Sorry, Barbara and Addie for your woes. I hope everything looks brighter this morning.

My dog is mostly deaf and scared witless of rainstorms. She doesn't hear the thunder, but has proven a pretty good barometer when sniffing the air of an approaching storm. She begins shaking and pacing the house endlessly. Those toenails on the tile are making me consider dog-booties or something. I've tried several remedies but have yet to find one that works. Patting just doesn't do it. She doesn't like getting wet outside, either. I found myself holding an umbrella over her last night in the driving rain.

Have you tryied hold her or putting her under a cover on her bed? And they do have special jackets for dogs that are afraid of storms.

Good morning all! Just sat down with my coffee and going to catch up on things around here. Also reading my daughter's blog. That is one funny young lady.

Being away for the weekend means I must get some groceries so I'm off to do some shopping.

I think she meant the Greyhound on wheels! I don't know if I want to tell her that--she saw the "Wabbits 4 Sale" sign when she was riding shotgun and probably would like me to go get a few "Wabbits" for her ride on the greyhound!
