More challenges

Hello , My Dear Virtual Family,
     I am so blue today so I won't bug you too long.After losing PeeWee yesterday am , I turned around later and Lassie our collie was barfing up in the living room -so I grabbed her up and went out side and laid her on the grass in the warm sunshine. I think she liked that because she was lifting her long collie nose and smelling all the scents.I decided to let her lay there for about a half hour while I was doing dishes ,  running the vacuumm and cleaning up the barf.
     A short time later DH came to the door and asked me to help get her back in the house because it was sprinkling rain. We brought her back in the kitchen and laid her on her rugs , where she lays while we are on the computers. I went over and stroked her beautiful head and then our male sheltie came over and laid down beside her. DH said they were good to keep each  other company. They were snoozing and I left them for about 20 minutes and came back to check on them and I saw Lassie take her last breath. I could hardly believe it.
     WE had her to the vet about 3 weeks ago and they were pleased that she had lost some weight -to make it easier on her joints and the arthritis . I know PeeWee and Lassie had a love -hate relationship. If they could fuss they would and if she could sleep together - they would . Makes you think of some of the things we people do? :)
     But , I am suspicious of the dog food ? When the vet had said that was good Lassie had lost the weight and I was thinking in my head - the only reason is because she hates that new bag of dog food?That was approximately 3 weeks ago and just a little over 1/4 of a 50pound bag is gone?? I wish I had some way to test it.
     Then today was hubby's birthday and we were suppose to meet his sister in a town 30 miles away. We got there but they did not because we got our wires crossed somehow. I was so disappointed because that could have been a day I could have finally sewed!
     Also, I had ordered some new fabric from and they emailed to say all of that fabric had been sold??? I must have good taste??? :)
     So , I will not take so much of your time? Maybe at least some of you have escaped to your sewing rooms! I am just so tired I am about to fall over and I miss my babies. I am glad they are not in pain anymore -but my heart has two empty spots that will take a while to heal.
 Love to all

O, I have to share with your a beautiful give away at :
yes ,this would be one that I wish I could win - you know how you love something because it personifies itself with your essence- well - this one does that for me. But I will be good and share it for all  - so if you win it - I can still enjoy it. :) Good luck to all.


  1. Oh Linda, I'm so sorry you have lost Lassie too.
    Try to think of them together running and chasing rabbits in doggie heaven. Peewee needed her mate and they are together.
    Thinking of you especially today.

  5. I can't believe you have lost two of your dogs in two days! so sorry.
    Maybe Lassie was just missing PeeWee and gave up?
    I hope your husband has managed to have a semi-nice birthday after all that!
