Hello out there! (ECHO)

Hi all! I just realized that I haven't blogged about anything in a few weeks now. I don't want to start becoming a bad blogger again.

You have all been so busy creating such beautiful things. I'm envious that you are all good girls, and boys. I better get on the ball myself.

I'm happy to report that Chloe is doing well. She has gotten the whole house training thing down quickly. It just had me running out the door every time the dog looked at me funny. I think that we finally have our signals down now. When I don't... she lets me know... thats for sure.

Just want to shout up to heaven, and say Top' O the day to you Dad! Hope your having a beer at the pub, and perhaps a smoke. I'm sure the Lord wouldn't mind today. Especially since today (the first day of spring) was your birthday. So Happy Birthday Daddy~ I missed you in life, as much as I do now. I'm glad that such a funny guy as you ever existed in the first place. It's where I get my sarcasm from... that no one else ever gets.

Bye for now~

Finally some pictures!!!

Here is the newest, and last addition to our humble little home. Chloe! Although the house training is coming along a little slowly I'm happy to say that I have no carpeting in my house.

Fun in the snow!

Me & Chloe!

Miss Chloe

What kind of owners would we be if we didn't let our little one in on the fun of our favorite place? It is ok to take her on the regular beach until April. Also it wasn't terribly cold that day (just regular cold). I'm very overly protective! There is a doggy beach there as well, and we took her there also. She was fascinated that there were other dogs in the world. Of course she only liked the biggest ones. :) That's our Chloe~

BTW - the brain dead woman who originally bought her as an arm decoration wanted to have Chloe destroyed. She contracted mange and the woman didn't want to deal with the expense. My daughter Chris gave her two dips before even letting me know about her. Apparently she was in bad shape because the vet can't believe how great she looks now.
I am happy to report that after her 4th dip which was yesterday (Thurs.) she is doing great. I have a funny feeling that the f---er who exchanged her for a brand new puppy never trained her to go outside... thus the problems I am having. If you look at the smile on my face you can tell that I am very happy to have saved her life, and perhaps she has saved me as well. I now have so much to do! lol

We finally got her papers, and we found out what we suspected. She is older than predicted. Just for the record she is 10 months old now. Not really a puppy, but not an adult either. We don't really care, but it is nice to know where she came from, and her actual birthday.

(Warning Speech!)

Many people don't realize cats and dogs are not knick knacks to display. They are actually living beings with feelings. A furry being should never be dumped, killed, or exchanged for another size. In the hallway of the vets office yesterday morning someone left a beautiful cat that is fully declawed. If anyone here in Bergen County NJ would like to know more about the kitty please let me know. I know that the vet wants to get the poor thing a new home. He is a great Dr. that hates to kill any animal that does not need to be destroyed. He actually has two other cats in his office that someone just left there months ago.

Thanks to all for the advice. Please email me anytime you think something might interest me! Hugs to all~
