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) tube.c om/wat ch?v=ZZh Ctj9 dbdE(Remove the spaces!)

Hi Melian and Mama.....

Thank you so much for vote #13,000!! I can hardly believe I have that many votes!! Well poor Daddy must have been petting me too much because Friday he ended up in the emergency room with dehydration & dangerously low blood pressure readings. What happened was we had regular doctors appt on Friday morning. That doctor found his bp readings really low & coupled that w/his blood tests determined he was dehydrated & shipped him over to the emergency room. Two bags of fluids later, a battery of tests, a breathing treatment for his bronchitis and 6 hrs of our life we'll never get back (hahaha) we were released. He is better but still has some congestion and has a low energy level. Moma had him up moving around today thought. This weekend it was in the 90's here & humid so he couldn't do anything outside and we just stayed inside in the a.c. Cooler today so we got outside. Grammy is all well by the way, Moma is almost well & Aunt Bonnie has finished her radiation treatments. She does have some pain in her lower left area but she needs to call the doctor abt that. They could possibly name a wing of the hospital for us Moma says!! But we all are getting better thank you. Great stories you tell abt Shadowfax. So ethereal and dreamy. We have been voting for Pippin in the Grazers contest and will go over to see Shadowfax after visiting Tiny Angel. Guess what I did today?? Oh I am so clever and proud of myself. They were working on the bird bath...leveling it up & fixing it up. I was outside w/them but had wandered off into another part of the yard. I came back in a while w/something in my mouth. Moma says what is that? to Daddy....she came over to me and with so much pride in my little body I dropped at her feet a mole I had caught!! Look at what I have Moma!! Anyway it seems that Rico tried for ever so long to get one but never did and now I have one to my credit!! But it seems that they are nasty and so this one went into the woods but how about that?? LilyPup the Mighty Huntress!!! hugs LilyPup

Hi Melian

Going to miss Shadowfax & his adventures. Keeping our paw crossed that him & Pippin win tomorrow. Cold here today. Had frost warnings out last night so Mom had to cover the gardens. Now rain is moving in. After that weather should turn nice again. Can you believe possible frost so late in May. Mom said it was because she put her tomatoes out. Most always freezes once after she sets them out. Thank you for vote # 5400 .

Come visit me, Brandi, Dani-, R&R- Bring on Spring, Sammy- Thanks Kane for vote 12,700

Hi Melian,

Oh don't worry about being busy it's nice to hear from you whenever you have time. Thanks for thinking of me for the avatar contest I've only been in one contest before and that was along time ago so I'm pretty excited! Going by now with a vote for Tiny. Mom got up early so we could go for a walk before it got to hot good thing she did b/c it's raining now and she has to work this afternoon and won't be home till late. You have a good day my friends, Husky Hugs, Bella

I'm back!

Melian, Mum is home, so I am back on DC. She had a good trip with her daughter (Brody's Mom) to see her Mom @ CO. Mum enjoyed the plane flight, staying @ a nice motel, eatting out often - 1 night fancy with tasty steak + lots & lots of visiting with her Mom & daughter. I stayed home with Da. Friday noon the neighbor gal came to our house to let me out & take me for a walk, but I growled @ her & she could not get me to come out of a corner-so she did not take me outside! Ugh! It was a long day inside till Da arrived home from work. But I did not leave a piddle in the house! I was super excited to see Mum return home! The weather was nice on the holiday Monday so I got a ride in the van to the fairgrounds & walk around. Saw 2 people riding horses with a dog, so Mum pulled me away so I could not meet the dog & horses. Probably best cause I was growling @ them. Cool temps today & tomorrow with possible rains. Mum's flowers need the rains. Hope you & your Mum are enjoying summer. Casey Corgi oo & xx

Day 29 of our DOTM Run Fun Dog Facts The origin of amputating a dog’s tail may go back to the Roman writer Lucius Columella’s (A.D. 4-70) assertion that tail docking prevented rabies. 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.
