A spark in the wind

Friday, September 02, 2011

Lately I've felt like a spark in the wind... but a spark is still a spark right?

I haven't blogged lately, just been so busy. Quick run down. Last weekend we stayed at our new place for the first time. We went fourwheeling all day, played some mini golf and even ate some ice cream (my biggest weakness). Over all it was a fun time. During the weekend we had to stop back home to go to my besties dads funeral. It was very nice. They had several speakers talk about him and his life and most stories were entertaining. That's the way it should be I think, remember the good times. I totally lost it though when my besties husband talked. He wrote a poem that was cute and funny but in the end his voice broke and tears came... I'm a total joiner, I see tears I cry too.

My husband and I talked about getting another dog and he said if we did he'd like a pup. This is something that scares the crap outta me! I LOVE animals, but I really like getting adults that people are giving up. Trained and through the puppy stage! I think because our dane that passed we got him after I don't think he had a great life. He was a very anxious dog and that probably played apart in his short life. My husband wants to get it as a pup so it will never have been abused and we won't deal with a lot of the issues that we dealt with. Especially with Danes since their lives tend to be shorter than other breeds anyway.

I found a breeder and it looks as if we will be picking one out next Saturday. I am so excited and anxious and I wake up at night thinking about it... here's a pic of one of the puppies out of the litter



It's a blue great dane. My husband didn't want one that looked like ours so blue is what we went with. I can't wait... I wish I could pick him up this weekend.

This weekend we are going camping with my folks. It should be a nice time.

I've decided that I need to get up early in the morning to get what I need done for myself. The last two days I've gotten up to get active and to take care of my horsey Jack.
That's about it. I hope everyone has a fantastic labor day weekend and does something fun! Be safe!

    Oh what a cute puppy!!! I so understand what you mean about the puppy stage. The dog that we still have we took in as a puppy (she was a stray, had mange, worms and was pooping out balloon pieces). She is a wonderful dog now, and I love her to death, but I was so glad when that puppy stage was over!! LOL I mean she was cute, loving and adorable as a puppy but the training, chewing etc I did not enjoy so much. But I kind of agree with your husband in a way. And puppies are so darn cute!!

    Anyway, glad you had a good weekend. And yes a spark is still a spark but don't let it go out!! I need you on here encouraging me! LOL

    Oh and I am sooooo jealous that you have a horse!! I love horses- had them growing up. Take care!! And definitely post pics when you get the little cutie!
