Due to Photobucket requiring an astronomical fee for hot linking to 3rd party sites (e.g. blogger), I can no longer continue to do this for fun. It's crazy! Their site is having issues. Why should I pay $400 to hotlink? No thank you. So, I'm quitting unless an excellent solution comes up.

At this moment, I have to consider my pictures lost. I do have backups of most of the photos; but, to dig through them all one by one to find the pictures used for blogs is a pain in the you-know-what.

It is way too much work to try to rebuild this blog of mine. I am actually sick at this moment and have been sick for several days. I really don't need to stress over this anymore. So, I'm quitting until an excellent solution comes up

Y'all take care!

Dog Needs a New Home!

Unable to locate owner. So, this dog is now looking for a new home!

Age: estimated between 7 to 9 years old
Sex: Female
Breed: Unknown; looks like Golden Retriever, Border Collie and/or Chow in the mix
Size: Currently around 33lbs
Vaccinated: June 6, 2017

This sweet girl came up to us June 4th and is looking for her forever home to live out her golden years. She is shy but friendly. She is need of someone who has patience and would give her love and training in spite of a few issues. She is currently an outdoor dog afraid of thresholds and most likely not housebroken.

We cannot keep her as we travel and go camping. It would not be fair to her to drag her along with us. And, we do not know of anyone who could keep an eye on and feed her while we are away.

Other dogs, cats, kids: Unknown. However, she did seem vastly interested in our cat from a distance – that is as far as we would let it get. And, she seemed timid and/or extremely submissive to the next door’s happy-go-lucky dog.

Current health (6/13): She underwent a medical workup on June 12 which included x-rays. Overall, she is in pretty good health. She has been diagnosed with heartworms which are not severe. She is now on Heartgard Plus. Her lungs are clear and her heart is not enlarged. We will pay for heartworm treatment while under your care.

Let's Dance!

This has been a draft sitting in Blogger just... well, sitting. I'm currently working on something; so, I thought to just go ahead and publish this bit after inserting dates. Enjoy.

I plcked up writing again back in late April (2016) after a long hiatus. This piece was started May 9th (2016). I played with it a few times and then abandoned the effort. It is based on a dream I had of a dog who knew how to dance and how violence tore us apart. I heard music in my mind when I first started writing this. And, in my dream, I saw a dog and me dancing with pure joy.

Please keep in mind that this is just piddling writing (journaling) -- nothing is ever perfect when I write...

We met one day,
feet tangling
to know one another,
to tango, foxtrot.

{Let’s Dance.
Giving Glory to God, Hallelujah.
Let’s Dance!
Rejoicing in the life we have.}

The day came, life dealt a cruel blow
Separated the two of us.
Looked high and low,
Looking high and low,
For one another.

One kept searching,
the other bonded with another.

In accident, a day came
I found you.
And, we came together rejoicing!

{Let’s Dance}

I looked up and realized
sacrifices need to be made
giving up the one I looked for.

It’s only temporary;
God willing.

Both mourned and lived.
Duties performed.
Loving others
until the day and call came
reuniting us once more.

Taking time to grieve losses
Coming together when the other is ready
because life is meant for rejoicing….

{Let’s Dance}

Are You This Dog's Owner?

This female dog is currently safe; but, is in need of veterinarian care. The person keeping the dog is ill-equipped to take care of it at the moment as there is hardly any shelter on the land and has indoor cats. At the moment, the keeper is waiting to see if someone claims her and if not, will go from there. Please contact me if you think you know who this dog belongs to. Thank you!
