[B][COLOR=black]Here is a poem I had to post. This describes completely how I feel about my furchildren who are "just dogs". I hope all the animal lovers here will enjoy this. I found it to be very beautiful. [/COLOR][/B]

It Has Begun!

Posted 09-20-2010 at 09:38 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

It is September 20, the football season is in full swing, apple orchards are open for the annual pilgrimage of people looking for fall activities, hockey training camps are open, and we have begun our annual hunt for the perfect Christmas gifts. We usually start pretty slow, waiting for the flyers with the unbeatable sale price, and they slowly start filtering down now as the stores build their inventories for the season. We set a goal to have all shopping done by December 1, so we can fully enjoy the season, I think we have met that goal only once in 9 years. That is okay now with so much shopping being done online, which I fully enjoy, because we don't have to fight the crowds at the mall. Well, today I went to the children's Mecca of TRU (Toys R Us) They had exactly what our focus of gifts were going to be for the boys, Imaginext toys. They are great toys and very durable for our hard playing boys, they were buy 2 get 1 free. I enjoy going there, especially without the boys, because...

In my happy place!!!

Posted 09-19-2010 at 06:50 AM by Maureen

Well, this is a first!! Me, blogging.......where will it all end?!

I'm sitting here, as you do, pondering on the great mysteries of life. Do I want another coffee before I head out into the rain with the dogs? Can the dogs wait for me to have another coffee before I head out into the rain with them? Do I have a shower before or after the said rainy walk (that one was simple; if I get soaked, I'm gonna want to heat up when I get back!) I'm sure the dogs won't hold it against me and any dodgy unwashed smell emanating from me will more than be disguised by eau de wet mutt!!! Anyway, too much information for delicate ears to handle this early on a Sunday, I'm sure.......

Heading back to the plot (I have a tendency to digress more than just a little, so please make yourselves comfortable and fasten your safety belt, it could end up quite the journey..) I'm still sitting here and I'm in my happy place. The unwalked dogs are sitting at my feet next to the radiators...

Unspoken Softly (Poem entry #1)

Posted 09-18-2010 at 10:07 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

I have said in the past I was going to start posting some of my poems I wrote. This poem was written when my wife and I were friends and I was really confused by my feelings for her, this one is the one I actually had published. It is not my best IMO but it was good enough to be published. Enjoy.

Unspoken Softly

As we into each others eyes
speaking in ways we can only know,
I want to kiss your lips and live a dream.
You may be just a friend
but you mean much more.
My heart has grown so fond of you
but I can't say I love you so.
Will my feelings ever change?
I do not know.
I would love to love you
and give you my heart.
You are my dream.
You've touched my soul.

My $5,000 Chihuahua - A Pet Parent Dilemma

Posted 09-17-2010 at 11:13 AM by caninemom3

It was this time of the year, Autumn and it all comes back. Ivy lay in the bed sort of crumpled up with her hind legs contracted to her body. She could not move them and every time I tried to move her she winced and cried out. I was in a panic. What was I, were we to do ?? This had happened before. As I tried to comfort my little Ivy, my tears fell onto her sweet little face. I prayed. "Dear God, NOT THIS AGAIN !!" "What are we going to do, God, we are bankrupt ?!" My head was spinning as I tried to figure out a solution. My husband, for all his faults, was beside himself as well. Ivy was his "little princess". I knew something had to be done and it was me who was going to have to set things in action or she would be paralyzed for the rest of her life or have to be put down.

Ivy had ruptured a disc in her back. I don't know how it happened or why. She had no feeling in her legs and had lost control of bowels and bladder but yet still had enough...
