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

We have missed hearing from you and hope all is well. It wasn't COMPLETELY fair that I lost blogging priviledges yesterday because I didn't listen when Daddy called me to come into the house and kept running all over the place! Like a friend of mine said, how often do THEY not listen to US when we try to tell them something??? A lot of times we try to ask to go outside, especially me, Chewie. I will hit the bells on the front door and whine and Daddy will say "knock it off, Chewie. You don't have to go out". Now, how does HE know? I think I know better. If we would end up peeing or pooping in the house because HE DIDN'T TAKE US OUT, in spite of the fact that WE WERE ASKING HIM TO, who would be in trouble? You got it!! We would take the fall and it would actually be their fault....I'm just sayin' Sometimes I try to get Mommy or Daddy to play with me, especially Daddy cause he plays better than Mom. Sometimes he plays with me but sometimes he ignores me and tells me he is trying to work on his computer or he is busy in his workshop. I am trying to talk to him and he just ISN'T PAYING ATTENTION!! They never get punished if they don't listen to us!! Why are we supposed to ALWAYS listen to them?? Just not fair!! PuppyDog Kisses and Tail Wags, Chewie Cairn Cuddles, Maya

Hi Melian,Sweet Angel Tiny and Mama!

Vote 14563 and a silent vote for Angel Tiny:) We are voting for Pippin daily now since our internet service of yesterday. Thanks for stopping by to wish Ty a Happy 11th:) Brie is next in June and more cake in July with Bentley. Love your pictures!! We are just back on the internet, but only have limited GB's each month. We now live in an RV full time and sold our home last Fall. We spent the Winter in Aripeka Florida in a RV park. DC friends from NJ and FL came for a get together this past March...lots of fun:) We are now in White Lake Ontario in a RV park. Our swimming place is just 5 minutes from us in the Village of White Lake. We will be here till Fall and then drive back to Florida in our Motorhome for the Winter. 6 months here and 6 months there. We get to swim more here which is great. The beach at Pine Island FL only lets us on it twice a month 7:30am to 9:30am Nov to March. The tide is always we run like crazy more than anything. Wishing you a Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Hugs and Golden Kisses from Brie,Tyler and Bentley & Mommy Sandy

Poor Mama....

Oh that is what Moma calls Brain Dead....after an all day doing something and if she is really tired that is what she calls it in herself. Perfectly understandable. We have been voting for Pippin by the way. Hopefully he can win!! Getting awfully warm here although muggy. It's rained the last 2 days/nights so if it gets any hotter, which we hear it will do, it will be a booger bear. Ever heard that term? Maybe its a southern term. Anyway we have the a.c. on here although its on high right now preparing ourselves. Daddy slept better w/it on last night being congested. I am so tired right now from being outside today and on the deck I am laid out on the couch next to Moma with my eyes closed. Remember how I hated the kitchen floor because it was slippery? Well I am out there more and more when she is in the kitchen. Moma has noticed lately and she suspects one day I might floor surf when she is cooking. Get some rest Mama....we are thinking of you....hugs LilyPup and Moma

Hi Melian

thanks for stopping by Mom. Hope you got a good nights sleep. Those little twins must need alot of care. They sure are cute. All the little animals showing up on DC makes Mom think of how great an other puppy would be. This time she would be ready for one. However Dad isn't so she'll just keep dreaming.

The twins are so cute. You are so lucky to have all kinds of animals around you. The baby cows came up to our fence today & I chased them away. Mom wasn't to happy about that. She says they are just babies & I should leave them alone. Babies they look like giants to me! We were up half the night with Rusty. He is scared of the thunderstorms that went through. Mom put his thundershirt on him but he never quit breating hard ubtil she took him to her room where he always sleeps. More coming into night too.
