Birthday Boy!


Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday!

My Blue Healer is 8 years old today!  His main priority is playing catch!!!  He Loves the Tennis ball.  He likes Tomatoes, Beggin Strips, dog biscuits, and his daily slice (or 2 or three) of bread in the morning while I am eating my toast and tea!

Blue enjoys going for car rides, and sitting in the trailer picking up sticks while being driven around on the mower. “Blue” knows commands such as sit, stay, jump like a fish,  give me your paw, high five, up, get on your bed, Go get….(insert name) and more. He can say “I Love You!”  He watches cattle shows on t.v. or any commercial and show that has animals in them.  A favorite pastime of his is playing hide and seek, and he won’t stop until he finds you! He has so much fun and brings us so much joy.

It’s no wonder Dog is God, spelled backwards. They love you unconditionally, and with all their hearts.  Happy Birthday Bluey!

Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole. ~Roger Caras

An old dog, even more than an old spouse, always feels like doing what you feel like doing. ~Robert Brault

My goal in life is to be as good of a person my dog already thinks I am. ~Author Unknown

The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue. ~Author Unknown

I talk to him when I’m lonesome like; and I’m sure he understands. When he looks at me so attentively, and gently licks my hands; then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes, but I never say naught thereat. For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes, but never a friend like that. ~W. Dayton Wedgefarth


Buzz(agent) & Beyond to the rescue!

I joined the Bzz campaign for PURINA BEYOND NATURAL PET FOODS and recieved my package on June 28th.  With much anticipation, my furry canine “Blue” shared in the excitement, when I retrieved my package at the mailbox from BzzAgent. I wish I could have a twenty-four hour surveillance on this little guy, because I don’t think anyone would believe his antics as they are told.

So, with Blues’ tail a waggin, I hurried & opened the brown corrugated box to see what would be revealed inside. A generous 3 LB package sample of Purina Beyond, “Adventure” (Grain Free ~ Tuna & Egg Recipe) Natural Dog food, and two $3 money savings coupons.

Since it was late in the day, Blue had already eaten, so reluctantly, he had to wait until the following day to start the switch to Beyond. I began to slowly transition him to his new food, although, judging by his reaction, it will not be an issue. He gobbled his poultry and tuna up without hesitation. I gave him one kibble as a treat, and to let him know what was going into his bowl. Then, he started jumping up and down while I filled his bowl on my counter top.

As I read the package label, I am pleased that Beyond is thinking of the good health of my pet (and yours). Knowing that they use NO artificial flavors, NO artificial colors OR Preservatives in their dog food, makes me feel confident about feeding Beyond to my special family member…and better too, knowing that it is All Natural and Grain free. Bluey has so far made it several days without any severe issues. (No diarrhea, but does have some stinky gas….I am hoping that will subside). He remains excited as of yet to his feeding times!


Let the taste take your dog to infinity....and Beyond.

Through my window : A Poem


Through my window……my eyes can see
Flowers growing……blowing leaves.

Trees that reach……into the sky
Flying birds……passing by.

Cats that wander ……Dogs that bark
Children’s laughter from the park.

Mowers mowing ………Ponds that glisten
Grown kids talking……Parent’s listening.

In the distance…..I can hear
Airplane’s engines……getting near.

Sounds of silence……..No one’s home
Just you and me……The kids are grown.

Out the door……..No time for us
Grand kids one day………we have to trust.

Wishing, hoping……Time stood still
But time goes forward…………It’s God’s will.

Through my window ~ by Pamela K.


Lost a good friend, and family member. Very sad day.

For Jakey.

I look down, to the end of the yard. To the cage with the open gate.
The place, which the past few months, became your home, and the home you’d grow to hate.
It wasn’t such a bad place, you had four walls, a roof and floor. You no longer were able to come and go, like there were, a revolving door.
You had to stay, in at night, and through the long hot days.
Though you didn’t put up a fuss, because you knew, it was to keep you safe.
Your yard kept you fenced in, for your safety of course. But you no longer had a pond to swim, and you couldn’t chase, the neighbors horse.
Your arthritis made you achy, and your face, it looked so sad.
We often felt so helpless, but we gave you, the love we had.
I hope you felt it, in your heart, and now know upon your soul. That you really were a good boy, and we really loved you so.
A life you lived of freedom, you always came and went. But in your final days of living, you were told that “you can’t”.
You can’t go for long walks any more, your achy bones will not allow.
You can’t roam in to the neighbors fields, to lay near the stinky cow.
You can’t run, chasing floating leaves. Can’t pick up foot long sticks.
You can’t drag around your stuffed toys, can’t set them on the bricks.
You can’t climb the steps, up to the porch, can’t lay on our front door mat.
You can’t run off in to the woods no more, and can no longer befriend the cats.
No, all these things we watched you do, for the past many years. We often yelled, and called you home, but now you’re no longer here.
I look down to the end of the yard, to the cage with the open gate.
It’s empty now. I don’t see you there. It’s the empty cage, I’ll grow to hate.
I already miss my friend. My “Ja puppy”. My “Jake”.   May you rest in peace with the angels, and may you ache no more. I Love You.
