A special thank you!



To everyone who looked at my blog for the A to Z Challenge I just want to say a special thank you. It was wonderful reading all your kind comments as I was very close to not joining in, but Alex the Ninja was a guiding light  and I decided to take it on and I am very glad to have done so.

If you read my posts you know I love Jimmy Stewart and he is my favourite actor. I have his book of poems and they became famous when he recited them on Johnny Carson. Above he recites his poem about his dog. Yes it made me cry and I don't care-it was sweet!

I also love animals and am following a couple of blogs that I found during my A to Z and told them of my beautiful Katie girl, my black lab, who is with my dad now probably traipsing in the bush somewhere. Our current dog is our Wallace who is a rescue and is all fun and playful until he has to go outside and then he shivers and freaks-absolutely terrified after all these years. Yes he is also known as chunky chunk and fart boy-boy can he let them rip and it sounds like a trucker (meaning no disrespect to truckers).  So here are my 2 below:) oh and yes Wallace has 1 blue eye and 1 brown eye.

Thanks again!

  2. Puppy pictures. YAY!!! I love my dog. I spend all day getting up to let her out, let her back in, let her out, let her back in. I don't know what life would be like with multiple dogs clamoring for attention. I'd probably just have to learn to write standing!

    1. Oh Katie was like that-in and out but Wallace is scared of the outside so he is happy inside until we need to take him for a walk, then he hides and shakes-poor thing. We have tried everything but whatever happened to him in Louisiana has stayed with him

  3. Beautiful furbabies, Birgit. SO cute! Cannot imagine life without ours. They make all the difference, don't they?

  6. Yes, I'm one of those persons who go ga-ga over photos of dogs and cats together. Seeing yours makes me think yet again that Molly the Cat would love a canine friend, as would her humans.

  7. How sweet with the pictures of the dogs :) It was fun to meet you during the challenge and to read about the actors/actresses you featured. I almost feel a little let down today, LOL :)

    hope you do it next year!

  10. That Alex could talk the stripes off a zebra, which is why I ended up doing the A-Z this year. But we all survived! Yay! I love the pics of your pets. I've never seen a cat and dogs look so happy together. Have a great week! :)

  11. Your dogs are so adorable. It is so sad that dogs have such short life spans. I had Darryl for 14 years and it's hard to believe he's been gone for over 4 years. But it's hard to imagine life without our little Angie girl. I very much enjoyed reading your posts throughout A to Z.

  12. I am glad that Wallace has found a good home and new best friends. I do hope that he will eventually learn not to be scared of the outdoors x

    1. I hope so but I have my doubts as we have had him since 2009 and tried all we could and still he is terrified-poor thing
