I have the worst news to report. Melian died this evening. The neighbour's lab who has been running loose lately, terrified her so much that she ran full force into a fence (fairly new) and broke her neck, dying instantly. ___________________________________________________________________________ Needless to say I am devastated. I cannot breathe or think straight. I can't believe she's gone! She was so perfect and only 4 years old. ___________________________________________________________________________ I am shaking so hard...

How We Met?

My best friend and companion, Tiny, died on the 10th of April, 2009. I was devastated and didn't want another dog but my friends and sisters thought it best if I did. So, I decided to try and get a saluki, a breed which I have loved since I was 10 years old. I asked around, not thinking that I would get any response, and left it in God's hands. Within a week I had three offers and I chose Melian. While I will never forget my Tiny girl, I know that this is the beginning of another wonderful relationship and I know that Tiny would approve. My heart is with Tiny but there is a hole in it waiting to be filled by Melian. She is the sweetest little thing.My video on YouTube.Saluki Insanity(co-starring Kermit)http://www.you tube.c om/wat ch?v=ZZh Ctj9 dbdE(Remove the spaces!)

Hi Melian and Mama

Please don't faint when you get this. We know it has been a long time but we have not forgotten either of you or Angel Tiny. I have been fighting my allergies but they seem to have let up now, thank goodness. Hate that itching. And mom keeps us busy taking her to Drs. all the time. she was in remission for less than a year when her cancer returned so we are fighting that again. Other than that everything is fine here and hope you guys are doing well. Melian, we were reading your profile and you are very talented besides being so beautiful. You and your Mama take care. We are leaving you a vote pretty girl. Hugs, Torrey and Mom Eileen

Well this is it Day 31 of our DOTM Run and our final day. Fun Dog Facts Within hours of the September 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center, specially trained dogs were on the scene, including German Shepherds, Labs, and even a few little Dachshunds It costs approximately $10,000 to train a federally certified search and rescue dog. A dog can locate the source of a sound in 1/600 of a second and can hear sounds four times farther away than a human can. Dog nose prints are as unique as human finger prints and can be used to identify them. Dogs are about as smart as a two- or three-year-old child. This means they can understand about 150-200 words, including signals and hand movements with the same meaning as words. Thanks so much for the love, support and votes. Don't forget the dogs that are running for DOTD, they sure would appreciate your votes. Also if you have time our friends on the other channels also have there furbabies running for there May of the month badges BOTM-Trillian 186056 COTM-Mike 161232 HOTM-Texas 209066(Maggie is his dog sis on DC) HOTM-Shadowfax 49806 THEY WOULD ALSO APPRECIATE IF YOU CAN RUN OVER WITH A VOTE FOR THEM WE JUST REALIZED THAT WE DON'T HAVE IN HERE THAT WE ARE LEAVING YOU A VOTE ALSO DAILY!!!!!!!!!

Hi Melian!

Running by with a vote. Trying to catch up on DC! Hope you're having a nice day. Yesterday and today we've had some internet problems. Yesterday it was too slow and messed up, and today for awhile it was completely down. Of course it's back up now and is running a bit better than it was earlier, so we told mom to help us get on DC now! *hugs* Muffin, Brandon, and Peanut

Good Evening, Melian! ((LOVE THE KID!!))

Whew! WHAT a busy month May has been for us. I'm planning on blogging much more this June, but I wanted to start off early and let you all know how we have been doing today! First off, I have a LOT of new photos so come by soon and check them out :) Secondly, I have some bad news. Mom had to sell our cows, Annie (the calf) and Claire (the mother), because it was all too much work and commitment. We have so many animals.. over 100 chickens, a duck, a goose, a steer (Claire's twin brother, whom we're keeping), two alpacas, two cats, a budgie and we dogs. So instead of wasting a perfectly good milking cow (Claire) and a possibly good future milking cow (Annie), we sold them to a dairy farm down the road. Mom's dad, whom she still lives with, is friends with the farmers so we know that the two went to a very good home. Mom of course misses them both (especially little Annie) VERY much, but we had passed our limit on how many pets we can have. Another exciting thing is that we got 66 chicks on Tuesday!! All but five are going to be for meat, so they aren't pets that will hold the family down. For those who know the breeds of chickens, we got Jersey Giants, Dark Cornish and Brown Leghorn. YET another thing that has us on our toes, is that we have a hen that has been brooding a clutch of eggs. Well the first baby hatched either Tuesday night or Wednesday morning (we found the chick on Wed. morning)! Mom and I have been keeping a close eye on the other eggs. This afternoon, another chick was trying to hatch. And while you're not supposed to intervene, Mom helped #2 get out of the shell because it was taking so very long. Turns out, it might have a deformed leg (hard to tell right now, but she's pretty sure) so Mom wonders if it would have been capable of breaking through the shell by itself. Now we've got a #3 peeping in it's shell. I love helping Mom take care of chicks! Well this blog is getting SUPER long, so I'll have to get going now. Anyway, I'm ecstatic to be back on DC, and maybe I'll be blogging every day now? We'll see! Pawing a vote for you .. have a wonderful night dear friend :) Border Collie Kisses, Ruby Tuesday Rose ♥ xoxo

Hi Melian,Sweet Angel Tiny and Mama!

Vote 14624 and a silent vote for Angel Tiny:) Thank You..BUT We left a message on the avatar page..so it was you who entered us. We suggested our avatar be withdrawn as we are not very active on DC. Internet for our RV in Canada is expensive and GB's used up quickly:( Our GB's have been used up in one week, so we are at the lodge restaurant. Power is over 1/2 gone on the laptop. We will go to Telus on Monday, Mommy's next appt day in Ottawa. Hopefully we can get a good price for more GB's. We were swimming again yesterday and had a pawsome time. It has turned cool, so no swims for a bit. In the 60's..what a difference! We won't be answering blogs till next week. Will just vote DOTM for Chewie and the Modern Dog Contest for Boomer and Lorna Doone. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Hugs and love from Beach Bums Brie,Tyler,Bentley and Auntie Sandy

Hi Melian

Thank you so much for your kind words and prayers for my mama. My mama is doing much better. She has to use 3 different inhalers everyday, and she has to do some special breathing treatment twice a day. We know it's because of everyone's prayers that she's doing so good. She just went in for a check up and her doctor was surprised at how well she's doing...mama told him it's the power of prayer, and the power of the DC. She also got some extra brushes and combs for each of us, this one is called the Furminator...and boy does it take off any and all loose fur. It took me a while to get used to it, but now when mama pulls it out of the drawer, I go running to be the first in line. She's been adding something to our food too, she says how it'll help our coats and all, but all I know is that is tastes GOOD! I eat my meals faster than ever. Well, please keep us updated with any news on your end, when you can, kisses, Lilly

update on when Mum was gone

Mum talked to the neighbor gal & found out it was thundering outside when she came to let me out @ noon last Friday when Mum was gone. The gal had been to my house about 8am & I went outside for a quick "pit stop" with no problems. But when she returned close to noon it was thundering, so I was hiding & was not going outside then cause I was scared (Angel Rascal was busy) We had rain yesterday & last night & more due today. The farmers are glad to see the rain & so are Mum's planted flowers. Cooler temps today not reaching 60! I have been voting for ShadowFax to help earn HOTM badge. Casey Corgi oo & xx

Come visit me, Casey #143602 It's summertime & the livin' is easy (for a pup like me)! Congrats to Kodiak June DOTM! Vote Grant #264816 July DOTM.

howdy

How are you tonight? We had another hot one here. we did get out and about though. so we went to the church field and that was so nice. And we went to the dollar store too. I love it there. I have a special friend there that always makes sure mom gets me a toy. She just got a new min pin pup. We got some fried chicken at popeyes while we were out. well mom forgot that chicken has started upsetting my tummy now a days too. so I got a huge bowl of it. skinless of course. But it didn’t take long till I was really sick. It was a bad one today. mom gave me meds, but she had to spend a large portion of the afternoon sitting with me. mom and oma have decide I cant have any kind of meat except my turkey at night. Not fair. But I guess I would rather do without than be as sick as I was today. mom has a few things to do tomorrow, but she does hope to have more computer time. we will see. We didn’t get any rain today at all. But we did get some last night. I sure hope we get it tomorrow or mom says she will really have to water. I have some chicken for you tonight. And of course a vote too. Wishing you a wonderful night and a terrific tomorrow. love, hugs, prayers, puppy slobbers and magical yorkie kisses, Rufus, momma Kay and Baby Louie
