Re: Dolly

You are the best mom! I just went back and revisited Bailey's nightime routine and I am still so raw from losing Penny...quite the mess right now, but wonderful memories of two precious dogs that I loved so much. Merry Christmas everyone...

Re: Dolly

Reminds me of the nighttime setup I used to do for Bailey so she would not roam and get stuck under things. I'd do it again in a heartbeat...we all would.

Re: Dolly

Bless her heart...she is so adorable and no idea how much her mom loves her!

P.S. Guess what other picture was a tiny pic...my signature picture in my emails and looks like Yahoo does not support pictures in their emails anymore. They look naked!!

Re: Dolly

I just saw something yesterday about how you can take a pool noodle or two and put in under the "sheet" to create a bumper. This was for parents with children transitioning to a "big kid" bed from a crib. Just a thought...

Re: Dolly

I have signs on my back door and in front of my garage to deliverymen to always put packages on the front porch and I still have a few who totally ignore that request. Makes me furious because, as happened to you, we would not see them and in bad weather, they can be damaged.

Re: Dolly

Looks comfy...and keep in mind, you can "unstuff" it some if it is too high for her to get on and off. Thanks for putting my girl back up for me!

Re: Dolly

Bailey's picture was there the last time I was here. I will see if I can reload it from my pc (I am on my Kindle right now)

Re: Dolly

Poor baby..lucky for her that you are such a detective. Now, what is bending down to pick her up going to do to your neck and back? Don't you have a stroller that you sometimes use? Would that help both of you??

Re: Dolly

Reminds me of little routines we have we our pets. We know their quirks, but continually question ourselves. Penny is probably the ideal dog as far as going out.

Re: Dolly

I am addicted to You Tube videos about rv nomads and people who live full time in their cars and vans (don't ask!). Carol, did you notice that this lady has a chi named Dolly?? This fellow has come great ideas and van tours that keep me awake on late night sewing binges.

Re: Dolly

It's amazing how little it takes to make us happy when it comes to our fur children. That is so cool! I am happy for you. This situation has to be so much easier on your back too!
