I'm so lucky to have so many furiends!

Monday, November 2, 2009


Thank you everyone who has told me they are praying for/thinking of/crossing paws for my grandma. I don't know if you remember but she was supposed to have surgery last Tues. and the insurance co hadn't approved her surgery in time. She was rescheduled for Tues. of this week. Well, now she has been rescheduled for Friday afternoon and this time it is because of the doctor's schedule. Crazy, huh?
A furiend gently reminded me that everything happens for a reason last week. It was something Mom and I needed to hear. We actually heard it twice that day so apparently we REALLY needed to hear it. Sometimes we forget that us dogs and our humans don't really control what happens and even if we never know why, there is always a reason for the things that happen in our lives. Thanks for the gentle reminder, furiend....you know who you are!

I have had some awards given to me over the past few weeks and just now reminded Mom to post them. First, Martha and Bailey gave this friendship award to their followers.....
and since I'm proud to call them furiends I wanted to display it. Aren't they the cutest Basset Babes? Thanks for the great award, ladies!

Also, Cocorue gave me this Icing on the Cake award.....
Thank you so much Coco! I am proud to call you my furiend!
Now, can I have a real cupcake please?

I think another furiend gave me an award but I didn't remind Mom to write it down. You guys all know that I'm no young pup and my memory isn't what it used to be.....so if you gave me an award and I haven't posted and thanked you for it please give me a reminder.

You know, sometimes we take our furiends for granted even when we don't mean to. I just wanted to take a moment and tell all my furiends how important you are to me. I really appreciate you guys. Thanks for putting up with me!

I hear my mom say that SOOOOOO often -

And then she'll go on about going to the spca to see another doggie and she wasn't there any more but I was - blah blah blah blah -

Khongrats on your awards too!

Hay Twix!

We all forget somethings from time to time.
You don't even have to be older to forget, the just day Sadie forgot where she hid her treat, and she is just going to be two.

Congrats on your awards and tell your grandma we all still have our paws crossed.

Twix, Congratulations on your well deserved awards. My Mommy sometimes forgets too that we have awards, we don't mean to either. I will keep hoping hard for your Grandma and Mommy is praying for her.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Mmm.... cupcakes! Not that I've ever had one, but they sure look delicious!
There is a reason for the delay, Twixy. One day, the "why" will become clear. In the meantime, your grandma is in our prayers!

Martha and Bailey said...

Hi Twix, we have been thinking of your Grandma - we know how stressful it is when someone you love is ill. We are sorry there have been delays but we agree with everyone who has said sometimes things are just meant to be.
We are happy you are our friend Twix and congrats on your yummy Award too.
love and kisses

Congrats on your awards, the one from the Martha and Bailey was such a lovely one, wasn't it? And Coco's sweet cupcake was just so nice.

We like to think of you as our furiend too, Twix.
