just plain perplexing

New computer finally!!-no long distance phone calling and no e-mail - the old one died and I had been unable to communicate for a week! 

I suppose I should write a journal on the horrific year I've had.  But then, I don't really want to remember.  I will tell you the latest but don't want to dwell on it for any length of time.  I am a forward type of person.  I don't recall dates of sadness and cry.  It is behind me and I look forward.  I do give reverence to the past as appropriate but it is what it is and I try to see what I have, not what I have lost or suffered.

I had to put the one blue boy pup to sleep.  He was suffering. I had taken him to the vet with the other pup and showed him questioning what was wrong with him.  An x-ray reveiled an abnormality but it was out of my vets ability to answer so he sent me home waiting for more information from a referral vet that he was going to talk with...but it never got that far for poor Skimo.

 I must be in for something good, since I have had FIVE bad things occur that I have never had in breeding Cardigans before, all in ONE litter.

  1. Rita, oh no. What a heart-ache....I am *so sorry* that you have had yet one more sorrow layered upon all your others. You continue in my daily prayers.....one of my favorite quotes is: "Jesus did not come to explain away suffering or to remove it...He came to fill it with His presence" (Paul Claudel). As Christmas approaches, may you feel that Presence in a very real and healing way....

  6. Rita, May 2012 prove to be a much happier year for you and all at Cornerstone. You have been through a great deal in 2011. I was looking at your website as well as your blog, and was struck at how much Rio reminded me of my beloved, much-missed Chewy. Very best wishes for the New Year, Roxanne Spencer in Bowling Green, KY
