Ok well I think that gets us caught up. Not much happening here, partly because of my ongoing illness and partly because of my precious little baby fur ball who I want to play with all the time. Please tell me that will wear off after a while and I'll be able to get back in the craft room doing something. I tried last week for a while but didn't get much done cause I want to go check and make sure Zoe was alright.
Have a great day everyone! And I hope that your kicking your New Year off on a good foot and that things are going well so far for you.
As you can see through the pictures above, Hank was out constant companion no matter what we were doing. He always met my son Austin at the top of the hill when he came home from school every day. Anytime that we were at the boat dock Hank was right there with us and ready to ride whatever water craft we put him on. He just loved being with us. He even played basketball with Austin when he was younger and loved it. It wasn't until the last 3 yrs that we had to be HIS constant companion and move him into the house. We converted a bathroom that was close to the back door into his personal little room and made it as comfortable for him as we possible could. That little room of his was where he spent his final hour being loved on petted and caressed. We had Hank for 13 yrs and he was a rescue dog. He came to us at 1 yr old and was such a good dog. Our hearts will have a permanent scar on it from the loss of this sweet precious lab/chow mix.
Had I known what was going to happen. I wouldn't of hesitated in my decision of getting Zoe for Christmas. Because she has really helped us heal some. I was concerned that Hank might of thought that we got Zoe and he would be pushed aside. Which wasn't true at all and Hank loved Zoe and visa versa. Zoe would sneak off every single day and go lay down with Hank and he would scoot over to give her room to lay on his bed with him. He soo loved little dogs. The last thing he did that day before getting so bad was he gave Zoe a kiss. It was so sweet. I pray that our hearts heal quickly and if there is such a thing as a doggie heaven I'm sure he's in it.
Thanks for stopping by and celebrating Hanks life with us...

So now that's you've met my new fur baby girl.....I'm out of here to play with her before its time to lay her down to sleep for the night.
It reminded me of when I was a little girl and my papaw and granny would come over for Christmas he would give us kids some type of container or something another that he would put a little bit of money in. I'm so thankful that I'm so sentimental about things cause I happen to save the last one that he gave me. It was an emptied prescription bottle (this was back when they had pop top lids) and he had ripped a little bit of Christmas paper so that the outside of the bottle would be pretty. Then on the lid he wrote who it was for and who it was from. Of course the money has long been spent, but I kept that little medicine bottle that was so loving thought of by my papaw and granny.
I wasn't able to do any shopping whatsoever this Christmas cause I have been in the hospital and having tests run since I've been out so this Christmas had to be a different kind of Christmas. I look forward to a better one this year.
Take care all
ohhhh wait......I need to let you all know what I got for Christmas first...you'll have to look for the next post though.
