Last night I was curled
up on the couch
and watching some
tv, chilling before bed time.

Lily Bit jumped up and 
curled up next to the 
right leg.

And Cheyenne was on 
the left.

Dakota was on the chair!

jumped up on my painting
stool but he did.

So sweet!

Barn Cats/ Food and Lily Bit

A few weeks ago I 
picked up some cat food
at Aldi's.
The cats at the barn
were not at 
all fond of it.

So Chris grabbed a bag of 
food for them that 
they ate up.

Going through that I picked
up some the other
night and I poured it
in their tin can but before
I could scoop some up 
to feed them they were
attacking the bucket!
Weren't really eating it they
were just being what cats are
to begin with...

Lily bit chilling with me 
on the deck yesterday.

Lily Bit seems to 
stop here and there to 
take things in and 
she looks like she is

The other night she
sat on the arm of the 
couch next to me
in the chair.

The table light was shinning
on her one side.

She is the sweetest.
She has gotten where she
will run from me
if I head over to her.
She enjoys the attention
but she does not like
to be held. All I want
to do is pick up her and 
love on her. 
YEP....she rather I not
do that!!!
I however, am working on 
trying to stop my 
behavior and let her
come to me when she 
wants to.

Skin Issues

Love my furbabes
but vet bills are 
adding up!

Dakota had to make a trip
back to the vets today.
He has some bad spots
on his skin, usually a circle,
measuring in size dime to quarter.
Hair comes out with these spots.

Skin infection...
comes with the the lymphoma. 
Two week round of meds 
plus shampoo for a bath. 
I have yet to break the bath
news to him!!

He was so excited to be
going BYE, BYE with 
mom and leaving Chey and
Lily at home....
but that did not last long
once he realized where he
was going!

Poor babe.

Mom's Last Wish

About a year ago 
my brother had to have his
dog put down. 
He elected to have Moose

My mom having a couple
of her babes buried in 
her yard and one of 
mine decided that 
cremating her babes 
from here on out was
the way to go. 

When Mom was in ICU
and was alert she asked
about her three babes and 
then she told me, "you know
what to do if something 

Yes mom, I know what you 

Sunday evening at the 
Emergency Vet
clinic I elected to bring
Molly with me when I left.

They got her ready for me 
to leave with her.
Janice, woman that works with 
my daughter at Elm Hill Vet
lives right down the street, she 
met me at the office and took 
Molly from me. 
They are taking care of 
sending her out for 
Thanks to my daughter 
Amber and Janice for taking
care of Molly for mom
and I. 

When I took Molly to the 
vets the other night I picked
her up in the small dog bed
she was laying in. When I 
came home with just the bed
and blanket Cheyenne and 
Dakota had to check the bed
out. Even Lily
looked for 
Molly and has gone
back several times
looking for her.
They are doing better

Molly May

Last week Molly while
in the kitchen walking
Molly started slipping, her
back end would not stay up.

She slipped twice then seemed
to be okay. 
But then she stopped eating a 
few days later.

Saturday I was able to 
get her to eat some
wet dog food.

Yesterday morning she was
moving around and I thought
she would be okay.

Until I noticed how pale her
tongue and gums were.

To the Emergency Vet Clinic we
went. I barely got her there in 
time. But apparently Mollys
stomach was full of cancer but
there was not sign till
they started to bust.

RIP Molly, you are with 
your mom now. I love

Sleeping Arrangements

Sleeping arrangements
at my house can 
get interesting.

You see, I have a 
queen size bed and 
I share it with three
 dogs and 
a cat. 

Dakota is the only 
one that
will sleep under 
cover. But, that can 
Some nights its
 in and out.

I never feel him coming
 out though 
from under the 
cover but
I always know when 
he wants
under them.  I know
 this cause
although he can get
 under the 
covers by himself 
he feels the 
need to wake me,
 by scratching
at me. I raise the 
cover and 
under he goes. 
How many times
 a night
this happens can vary.

But since Chey 
and Molly
have come into 
our home or
should I say bed things 
have changed. 

Chey loves to sleeping
with a part of her 
body touching me, 
usually her back side.
The problem has come into 
play with Dakota 
wanting under
the covers cause Chey
sleeps sideways 
in the bed, 
up next to me. 

Raising the blankets for
Dakota to crawl under is
really hard cause of the 
way she lays. I 
have been 
having to raise 
her up while
she sleeps on the 
blankets cause
not only does Dakota want 
under, he wants to go to the 
bottom of the bed.

Now Molly used to 
sleep on a dog
bed on the floor. 

I felt bad about
that so one day I put her up
on the bed, I banked 
the side I 
was not one 
with pillows, I 
was afraid she 
would fall off but
the amazing thing is she
usually don't ever move. 

As for Lily Bit....
haha, I really have no clue
where she sleeps. 
She used to sleep with 
Dakota and I but since
the bed got crowded 
things changed. 

Some nights I 
get up cause 
Dakota needs to 
go out (he
is the only dog 
that gets up 
at night) and when
 I go down
to let him out 
Lily is on the 
chair.  Other times I find her
on the bed with us
 but lately she
has been sleeping in a 
narrow box next
to my bed that is full
of material and other stuff.

She is such a mess.
My daughter asked 
me if I 
get any sleep and the 
answer I 
gave her was .....
not really.
Course that adds 
to my fatigue in 

Sweet Dreams

Standing Watch

Watching outside!

Finding a Voice - Needs to Stop

tell me it's a phase!!

This two year finding
her voice is killing me.

She has taken it upon
herself to voice 

She seems to think it is
fun to wake me, time and 
time again till I 
get up.

She seems to delight in 
being in a different room
and meowing out
to me to come in there.
Then I get there she leaves!

Lily and the Arms

Last night while laying back
on the couch and resting 
I looked over to see
this site in my chair!

Lily Bit sitting up 
both front legs thrown to the 
sides, looking like arms!

Silly, Silly Little

Wanting Time sweet little
 Lily Bit, the
girl that gives me 
NO trouble
at all....
Has turned 

I thought may she was
going through
the terrible 

What is this little girl 
Being a brat!

The past week or so she
has started a 
new phase, 
meowing at bedtime.

She sits outside 
the bedroom
door and meows.
I will get up just to 
check on her to see
her just sitting there.
I go back to bed, lay
down and next thing
I know, she is 
doing it again. 
Finally I realized she is
doing this on purpose,
trying to get my attention.

Then she started 
doing it at 
other times, like 
when I lay
down to rest. 
She is wanting moms 
I realized that I have been 
lacking in the playing
part of her life. 
Having my hands full 
with working,
trying to do things at the
house and more 
So I am making 
it a point to
play more with her.
We used to play chase all the 
time and hide and seek.
Working on doing 
those things
more often now.

The last two nights she 
has even
come back to bed 
later for 
speical loving and petting. 
Yep, she wakes me for that
but I have missed that so 
I am happy to pet on her,
loves to have her 
head massaged.
I fall asleep doing this and she
sleeps in my arms for awhile...

She was asking for 
more time!
So she is not really evil, she
is being sweet.

Queen of the Back of the Chair

Misty seems to think she is queen of the  back of the new chair.   Well, I have news for her... never mind, I can't get up there anyway....
