Valentine's Day + Pillars of Strength

So much to post today.... but First Things First:

for your support & votes on
Mango Minster-
(But you'll alway be our #1 cutie, Missy Moo!)
Mom, Dad, & Jack a-roo

Next on our blog "to do" list for today:
To All Beloved Canine Companions:
"Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring - it was peace." -Milan Kundera-
Hope woo all have a wonderful day with your loved ones,
both those near at hand and those in your heart.

...and we have one more very important post-
Mom, take over the keyboard, your paws are better at this than ours...
This is for K, R, and their human woman, KB . They live way up in the beautiful mountains of CO. And KB is an amazing photographer! She posts pics of all kind of critters - their blog is a real treat to visit!

But sadly, there is a shadow on their happiness. K has osteosarcoma, and it isn't always easy to keep one's spirits soaring , even at those altitudes. So a group of bloggers have come together to dedicate today's blog posts as "PILLARS OF STRENGTH" for K & her pack, just to let them know they aren't in this alone.

It takes courage to face each day and fight this disease. We lost of our sweet boy, Sherman, to canine cancer that cut his life off way way too early. I watched my mother battle this disease for years as it stole her strength, vitality, and finally, her life. Love is what sustains us in this battle. And today , we celebrate Love. We're sending Sibe Vibes of healing and strength to K and her pack. God bless them. ~Mama Pat

A-roos to yous, and toodle-woo,
Jack a-roo , Miss Moo, and Mom

Thank you for your support and kind words. What an amazing surprise so many bloggers put together for us! It's taking me a long time to get through the entire list of posts... but each one means SO much to us. It feels as if we get a new gift with each post that I read.
