Even though we don't get
much of a chance to
comment on our friends blogs,
Allred still wanted
to be sure that I sent
Miss Nellie this message.
"I still love ya girl......
OK, now that that is done, here is
how my week went.
My Vickie and I met the most wonderful
woman at the hospital this week. She was
in the ICU and we don't know exactly what
had happened but she was in pretty
bad shape. She was so sad too
and she was having a really hard
time because she couldn't talk or move.
But when I walked by her
room and looked in, you could just see
her face light up, so My Vickie and I
went in to visit. She was in a special chair
so I got up on her bed so I could lay
my head next to her hands. She couldn't
move her hands more than a few inches
because they had restraints on her and
you could tell she was very frustrated and
Well, I just cuddled up to her
and laid my head under her hand
so she could feel my soft coat.
My Vickie and her spent the next
half hour smiling and laughing
as they made up a new language for
her to speak (well not speak, but
communicate) By the time
we left, she was feeling happy and
smiling. It was a very good
experience for My Vickie
as she got a better understanding
of how I feel when I try and tell her
There are lots of different ways
to share your feelings other
than by words. Humans can
learn a lot from us dogs in that regard.
It is almost time for
school to get out for the
summer. We only have three
more visits before all the
kids get to have vacation.
I am pretty sure My Vickie will
miss our times with the kids.
I know I will.
It will make summer seem
awfully long, except My Vickie
says that lots of the kids want
to come and take me for walks,
so I think I'll make it.
Our Friend Caren Quast sent
us some pictures from her new
house down in New Mexico.
She has the funnest guests come
play. Like these two Javelina's.
Well we had never heard of Javelina's
before but now we know all about
them and they are cool.
(Nope, they are not wild boars)
The two birds are a quail up in
the top left side and a roufous-sided
Towhee on the bottom right.
Thanks Caren for Sharen.
(he he, I made a rhyme)
And check out Oak Creek
I just love water.
We met up with our friends
on Saturday for our walk
and My Vickie set up a Pre-Test
for the search dog team of
Zoie and Brenda.

And Dougal got to go
on a weekend trip to areas
around the Great Salt Lake.
We thought that those of you
who are not from Utah might
enjoy seeing some of the variety
of terrain in Utah.
Of course you always see my mountains
and my moose and my rivers
and streams. But if you want
to see another side of Utah,
check out Dougals flicker site
below. It is amazing the difference.
And for even more of a different
side of our wonderful state
I pulled up one of Shyla and KB's
post from a camping trip they
took last month.
