The Dining Room Project

First of all, we have to thank all of you for your crossed paws and kind words of support.  We feel so overwhelmed with all of the love!  Thank you so very much!  We so appreciate it! 
As you can see, mom has started with the dining room project already.  Monday was a very sad day here and it helped her immensely to have a plan.  She took pictures off the wall and stored knick knacks away and moved furniture and rugs upstairs. She must have gone up and down those stairs at least 50 times!
She's into the patching stage.  The fun will come later when we can paint and possibly stencil.   Stenciling hasn't been decided on 100% yet. 
 Guess what?   I got groomed this morning and it happened in the dining room!  Mom says that this will most probably be the one and only time that any pup is ever groomed in our dining room so that means that I'm pretty special, huh!
 Mom has already told me about 2,000 times that I'm very beautiful, Mitch.  Do you need to tell  me too?  Thank you!
 I feel so much better now.    Thank you so much, mom!
Today was a good day for me.  I was perky and kept us with the pace!  I sure hope tomorrow is a winner too!
So until next time..............

Love ya lots,

You are *so* beautiful. Your mom mentioned that you had a rough patch over Christmas. I wanted to tell you that we're all thinking of you and crossing our paws that you feel better.

I totally understand you parents' decision to just let you "be" at this stage of life. We've made similar decisions in the past.

Thanks so much for your comments over at our blog. K and I can feel the love from all of you.

Hi Maggie, you look wonderful and Mitch you're looking fine too. Don't forget that you're always welcome up here. We can easily round-up Miss Sunshade and her evil mum and Jaffa and go for walkies. Sound good?

We read on Mango's blog about your new medical issues and we just wanted to let you know we are also keeping our paws crossed for you. Sometimes being allowed a peaceful, graceful, painless close is the greatest gift our loved ones can give us.

Maggie, groomed or not, you are a very beautiful girl, on the outside and the inside. And only a princess would be allowed to be groomed in the dining room.

We hope today and tomorrow and lots more tomorrows are good days for you.

That's silly being groomed on the dining room table. I bet woo thought you were getting served dinner not a haircut. Momma thinks in the pic with Mitchie you still have that cute puppy face. Muuuuahh beautiful Maggie. one day at a time. Good ones are better though.

Ok, now you did it, Ariel wants to get groomed in the dining room too! So much easier she says than going to TLC...LOL
I am sending you lots of prayers. It is so hard when our beloved pets get older. Ariel is 14 and full of aches and pains...Buffy is 13 and she has a tumor on her neck. Crazy. It goes by so fast so I have to enjoy everyday with my two old girls.
Happy New Year my friends.

Bocci said...
