I love amusement park rides, I am not afraid of any roller coasters, and I have a strong stomach so I don't have to worry too much.

Maggie is still coughing but she's only had 3 doses of the medicine so far, since I picked it up yesterday. Hopefully the pills will help. I really think the heat and humidity are making her worse. I'm curious to see if she improves when the cooler temperatures set in this Fall, I can't wait!
Thank you for asking!

So I guess I could stick a candle in a brownie, right? And later this evening she will be having friends over to hang out around the pool in the back yard.
I hope everyone has a great day!!!
Happy b-day to her!!!

Is there anymore of that spaghetti Bolognese left? Save some for me, that is some good eats!!!

Thank you for asking!
Poor girl. Please give her hugs for us.

Is it a collapsed trachea issue? I remember our first Yorkie, Bonita, had that.

Bless her heart. Praying for better weather soon!

I have some good news to share. I took my WI State Real Estate sales exam last night & passed! So excited!! It was a four hour exam, and the testing experience was a wild ride in itself. I guess all of the hard work & studying paid off. Next step is applying for my license, and working on my résumé. Yay!

Adrian & I are going out to celebrate tomorrow night.

Hope you're all having a Christmasy evening!!
