COOKIE – LETTING GO

I apologize for not sending out an update during the past few days, but it’s been tough. Letting Cookie go was more than difficult and accepting that she is gone is just as hard. Some history – Cookie returned to us from an adoption a few years ago with a sore on her left ear that…

UPDATE ON COOKIE

AROUND THE FARM – MAKE A SPLASH

06/02/17, Friday I needed a “pick me up” this morning so I watched a video  of Betsy Rose that I took yesterday when we were having storms. Betsy Rose can make my heart smile just by being in her presence. She reminds me, often, that we can overcome. She’s a true blessing.  Believe.. Sisco is doing well. He’d love…

I HEARD THE DOORKNOB JIGGLE – GUESS WHO?

05/18/17 I heard it. The sound of the door knob jiggling which really caught my attention – Sawyer used to do this often.  But then I remembered – Sawyer is gone.  The jiggling continues.  I open the door and what do I see?  A precious little donkey face looking at me! “It’s me, Mommy Theresa!…

Cookie’s Eye – Not Good News

Earlier this year, Cookie appeared to be depressed – she just wasn’t herself. With her history of cancer, well, I was just concerned. Dr. Specht ran some blood work and some values were all over the place. Then Cookie developed chronic imflammation in her left eye and was put on eye medications which didn’t seem…
