Pic of the Day: Strolling Miss Daisy

20150719_104410I found her last Sunday on my way to church, around the neighborhood, three streets over. She seemed to know where she was heading but all points bulletin signaled a lost pet or possibly a confused native to the lake that surrounds us. She did not strike me as bothered by the inquisitive strangers. She just wanted to walk, hurriedly, at  a snail pace rush. Caring she didn’t, marching she was unpretentiously.

Don’t know where she was going or coming from but she was strolling ahead, full throttle, zigzagging, quivering only to the onlookers while disregarding our prying eyes with amusement. I am sure she would have stepped over us if need be but instead, we let her majesty go by while still stalking her.

I took enough pictures to remember her by and left Miss Daisy, I just gave her a name, with the ladies.  I hope she found home wherever it is.  – The End –

Don’t I look pretty? I know I do. I love my new look, the sunglasses, the bow… too bad summer is almost over. Hoped you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend. Hey, I just stopped by to say hello and to tell you that I am having so much fun, I want you to do the same. Live your life like it is no tomorrow. Let it fly, fly away… oh wait, that’s right, I can’t fly.  Much love, xoxo

Picture Of The Day: Tracy Warner

Meet Tracy Warner. She is an adorable, down to earth, stylish and poised yellow Labrador.

Everyone has a story, right? It turns out, so does Tracy. Feel free to bring in the tissues, if you so wish.

This is how she came to be a member of the family.

Dany’s, that’s her cute, sweet, polite, well mannered and free spirit big sister, yes I could use all the adjectives in the book because she is all of the above and then some, friend and neighbor living across the street, was training Tracy’s brother to be a guide dog in order to earn girl scout badge.

As fate would have it, Tracy was meant to be a Warner.

The family heard about Tracy as homes were also being shopped with the same objective for her.

She stayed and trained, basic training and obedience, with the family for a year, at one point living across the street from her brother – I can just imagine the play dates – moving then to dog guide training school for the blind for a year and half. She proudly passed at number one.

Having earned her scrubs, she was paired up with a lady but it didn’t work out. She developed a chronic ear infection and under the strenuous circumstances, it became apparent the lady no longer could care for her hence she was returned to the Warner’s on a Mother’s day of all days.

Tracy has officially retired from her duties due to her debilitating conditions but she is extremely active.

She is seven years old and is on a special diet because of her allergies to corn and grain.

No, she has not forgotten her tricks. She has learned many others.

Hot tamales everyone!
