Share Your World – 2014 Week 25

 

Here are Cee’s Share Your World questions for week 25:

What is your favorite type of dog?  (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal, drawing, cartoon or character in a movie or TV show)

A black lab.  My Kayla was a Golden Retriever/St. Bernard mix.

Kayla 3

Name one thing not many people know about you.

I am deaf in my right ear from too much loud music through headphones and too many rock concerts when I was younger.

Have you ever gone scuba diving?  If you haven’t, would you want to?

No and no.  I tried using a snorkel and mask once, but began to feel claustrophobic and panicky.  They came off quickly.

What was the most important event in your life last week? (anything goes it can be a good nights sleep, finished a reading book,winning the lottery, or getting married)

There have been two important events recently.

 

My youngest step-son got married on the 14th to a wonderful girl;  and I was asked to do the mother/son dance with him.

Dancing with the groom

The other event was a short visit from my son who flew home from California on Father’s Day.

 

 

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am grateful for those two events.  For being able to share in the wonderful happiness of my step-son, and for being able to visit with my son, even if only for a few short hours.

Not much planned for the next week or so.

Thanks so much for stopping in and sharing in my world.

As always you can answer these questions yourself by posting in the comments below or you can create your own post.

SANDY

Sandy was born June 19, 1998.  When I first met her, she was a little bundle of golden fur, sitting on my mother-in-law’s lap when they stopped on their way home from picking her up at the breeder’s.

She loved ‘big sister’, but of course, Goldie wanted nothing to do with the intruder.

Sandy and Kayla soon became good friends and spent their time together chasing each other and swimming.

When my father-in-law died, and my mother-in-law became too sick to take care of her, we brought her to live with us.

Chloe and Leah had to get used to her, but soon they became friends, too.

Since coming to live with us, she has made it plain which one of us is her human.  She will not let Bill out of her sight for more than a few seconds without going looking for him.  If he has the nerve to leave her and go somewhere, she cops an attitude and lets him know in no uncertain terms that she is not pleased with him when he returns home.

Sandy will be 14 next month, and she is showing signs of her age.  A couple months ago, we noticed she was getting wobbly, and that her head was tipping to the right.  The vet said she had a lesion on her brain.

Last week we had to take her back to the vet because she could not stand on her back left leg.  We were given anti-inflammatory pills and steroids to take the swelling down.  She seems to be standing and moving a little better.

She is a much loved part of the family, and we are so glad we brought her to live with us.
