Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

As pets get old.........................

We have limited funds and we have 4 poodles, not a smart move but when we got them we were not expecting to get old so quick. I will be 71 this week. I hope we outlive our lovies. Bodicea is getting old too, she has health issues, she is ummmmmmmm plump. She has a small breathing tube for want of a better name, she snores and she snorts like a piggie when she eats.

Bodi has a tumour on the inside of her back leg, she hobbles and I am sure sometimes it hurts. The dilemma is with her breathing/weight problem I wonder about getting it fixed. We will take her to the vet and get that checked out as soon as we can because it is getting bigger. We did get it checked and its not cancer. I remember another poodle had one, Bonnie, we got hers removed and it did the trick. I guess they are fatty tumours and a lot of dogs get them. They don't complain, not like us people.
Everyone loves Bodi, she is such a sweetheart.

Brea is the little one, she has a bum knee, we need to fix that too. She is often in pain limping but again, no complaints. We are in the process of getting a credit line on our house so we can take care of these kids.

It's been 9 years since we lost my horse. I can't believe its been so long. We still miss her and I miss the life. I miss going to the barn in all weathers and going for long walks in the fields every day. We all loved that. I know Tristen would have loved it too. Shame we can't have another one but it's not possible. Not unless we move to the country again and have a barn and rescue one. Who knows.

NO I can not afford a horse. Really, I can't.
Bijou is a money pit. I don't think we can do a lot more for her at 1000 a shot. Twice now she has had an operation and I don't think she can have another although the problem with her "stones" won't go away.

They are all so cute and so have all the others been that came before. It's always sad when they start to get old, get ailments and know that some day they will be gone.
Bella knows how to relax

We figured that Boots is getting up there as well, she has her own problems. She is a cat, she pukes all the time. I think drinking the pond water may have something to do with it and one of my fish is missing. No idea what happened to it either

The young one is Bessie. She is fine so far, no problems with that one. Bella has teeth problems but we keep up on that.

Anyway, my little loves. I remember every single one I have ever had. I have loved them all equally but different. From Rabbits to Walter Pidgeon and birds and hamsters. I guess the only thing we have never got into is reptiles, we have had fish. If I did I would have loved those too. The hurt comes when they die. Sigh...........I hope to see them all over the rainbow bridge.
