I apologize for not posting much recently. We have been taking care of Ellie the miracle dog (post brain tumor surgery, atrial fibrillation, heartworm, two TPLO surgeries, etc). At least we had another year with her after the brain surgery in July. We are struggling with the decision to say good bye today because her quality of life is so poor right now. She has dementia, arthritis that prevents her from standing up, some neurological deterioration, is not interested in eating, among other things. We know we are making the right decision, especially for her, but I hate this part of having a dog. Anyway, love to all of you today and please hug your furry companions for me. I am very sad.
Happy Birthday @mrs-b!
I am glad you had a lovely dinner celebration last night and I hope the pain you were feeling afterwards has abated by now and that today your birthday is free of pain. Wishing you all the best and may your surgeon take excellent care of you and all this be a thing of the past very very soon.
Hugs and love to you.
You are kind and smart
lovely and sassy
You are one very
sweet NIRDI lassie
You make PS a special place to be
Gracing us with your lovely company
You love beautiful bling
as many of us do
But it isn't the bling
that makes us care about you
You are a special person
delightful through and through
And we are so lucky
you're with the NIRDI crew
Wishing you happiness and health
today and all the year through
All the best and continued success
In everything you do
Big hugs and much love from all of us
Your sweet and mushy NIRDI crew
Happy happy birthday!!!
Gaaaaaah! I love it!!
@missy - thank you SO MUCH! I'm printing this out and pinning it above my desk!
Thank you, ladies, for the genuine friendship the NIRDIs offer. It's true friendship - unlike so many interactions online - and I feel as tho I know each one of you. And I definitely value each of you!
Your kind good wishes elevated my day, and I'm sending my love to you all!
Lovely picture of ice cream again @missy--I have gotten so accustomed to the two cups side by side that I have named them in my head! They are such familiar friends of the NIRDI family. I realized from your post that I did not say that we decided to say goodbye to Ellie on Saturday. I do love that saying that when you say goodbye to a beloved pet that your heart grows a bit bigger each time, but it doesn't really feel that way right now.
I hope the telemedicine call went well today @missy, I’m sure it must be very difficult deciding who to trust with a diagnosis that can help. As you know, I get my hair cut every 5 weeks, but mine grows faster than grass, so it sounds as though this new guy is trying to drum up business, especially if he’s expensive. It’s amazing how quickly the days just whizz by, especially when you’re busy.
Woohoo, scorchio! @canuk-gal (I don’t know if you ever saw The Fast Show, but that was one of their catchphrases ). Way too hot to be out for long, especially if you’re exercises. Ooooo, did you say bling? I feel I’m letting the side down, but there’re just too many things to spend money on ATM.
Hope all is well with you @bling_dream19 and your Mum continues to improve.
Your gypsy set ring is @mrs-b, I used to have a yellow gold one that was an antique piece years ago.
Sending hugs @springerspaniel and thinking of you.
Keeping you in my thoughts @Slick1 and sending love.
Hope Marty is alright @marcy and work is bearable.
I treated myself to a manicure and eyelash tint today, it’s been forever, I think actually last March (2010) since I last did that. After lunch, we went and did our food shopping, best time to go, it was really quiet so we were in and out quite quickly.
The weather’s been so much better today, lovely warm sunshine, let’s hope it lasts.
Sending big love and hugs to you all.
