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,

How have you been? Sorry I haven't been by lately, but mom has been working a lot of overtime since they are very short staffed and it will be getting worse. Another person just retired and another one will be retiring in September. Mom won't let me on the computer unattended, so I have to wait for her. We have had nice weather, but the temps are to drop below normal the next couple of days. We managed to get the lawn mowed, the large deer fence up around the garden, the garden planted, flower containers planted, did the flowers at the cemetery, weed the flower garden, plant the Easter lilies so they will bloom next July, do laundry, work at getting the dining room ready to be painted by finishing removing the wallpaper and getting the china hutch emptied and moved out. All within the last 2 days. No wonder mom is tired and sore! Mom says having the extra day off from work only means work at home! I hope all is well with you and your family. Here's a vote and bark whenever you can. I know once the weather is nice it's harder to get on the computer because you want to be outside. Shepherd hugs, Contessa

Come visit me, CONTESSA-It's hard to say goodbye to all my friends-So until we meet again---

Hi Melian

Time sure goes fast alright. How are the twins doing? They are so cute.. The little calves run from me when I go outside. I just can't stop myself from chasing them. It's so much fun plus I get to bark at something.Barking is my favorite thing to do.bol

Seems like we might have gotten a bit caught up. I swear I don’t know how mom does it when we get so far behind. We had hoped it would rain today, but still nothing. They say we have a chance again tomorrow. mom sure hopes it does. If not she will have to water the front plants. And that takes about 2 hours. The pups are all feeling better after mom overdosed them on pork. And Connie is still getting better. Opa works his last 3 days this coming week. Oma said she is going to have to do a really big cleaning since she has to be quiet when opa is home. hehe. how is your weather today? how will it be this week? We are supposed to cool off later this week. Boy me and mom are going to love that. don’t know if we have anything going on this week. But I am pretty sure we will get out and about at some time. I have some more of that shredded pork for you tonight. Should be the last of it, hehe. and here is some cheesy pasta too. saluting all our troops past and present for their sacrifices. If you have a veteran give them a big thanks for us. Wishing you an awesome night and a super start to your week. Love, hugs, prayers, puppy smoochies and magical yorkie kisses, Rufus, momma Kay and Baby Louie

Well I didn't get into too much trouble this week. I did pee on the floor at mom's office. I was barking and barking but no paid any attention to me. Mom was seeing patients, so I had no choice, when you gotta go you gotta go. So I did it right there on the floor. Now they know that when I bark I have to go outside!!! Mom yelled at me 2 days in a row at dinner time. She fed me and Faith, side by side, and when I was finished with my dinner and just moved over and put my face into Faith's bowl and ate with her. She didn't even try to bite me. I guess maybe she thought I was the Original Hope. Mom saw me do this so she yelled at me to get out of there and that I had my dinner and I don't get seconds!!! So I moved away, then got to finish Faith's left overs. And you know what?, it was sooo good the first time I thought that I might try it again the next day. I did and I got caught again. I tell you, Mommie must have eyes in the back of her head! Today Mommie was outside with that power washer again. She was out there for 3 hours and her face got beat red from the heat. Then her sister and cousin came over to swim in the pool so they took turns power washing the fence. I tried to scale the fence to get at that dang water coming out of the nozzle. Didn't know I could jump so high. Then the Original Hope's boyfriend (Tucker) came over to swim in the pool. Mom put me in the pool Saturday but I got out as soon as I could. I didn't like it. Tucker's daddy picked me up and put me in the pool and you know what?? I STILL DIDN'T LIKE IT. Hey tried everything to get me to go in on my own but I wasn't having any part of it. I did growl meanly at the rafts floating in the pool and when my aunt Debby picked it up and ran backwards into the deck while still growling. Mom didn't come into the house until 6 pm and I know she is tired because I got tired just watching her. Well that's all for now, hope you all have a good night. Hopie TOO
