Mommie Received Bracelets in the Mail!

Mommy received two bracelets in the mail today that she ordered from CharmingMilo! They are so pretty and so well made. My fwiend Milo's mommy makes these bracelets and if you want some beautiful handmade bracelets we encourage you to look at her site!


I Am Your Dog

Mommy thinks this is a beautiful poem, so I told her I would post it on my blog! Lubz, Cassie

I am your dog, and I have a little something I'd like to whisper in your ear. I know that you humans lead busy lives. Some have to work, some have children to raise. It always seems like you are running here and there, often much too fast, often never noticing the truly grand things in life. Look down at me now, while you sit there at your computer. See the way my dark brown eyes look at yours? They are slightly cloudy now. That comes with age. The gray hairs are beginning to ring my soft muzzle. You smile at me; I see love in your eyes. What do you see in mine? Do you see a spirit? A soul inside, who loves you as no other could in the world? A spirit that would forgive all trespasses of prior wrong doing for just a simple moment of your time? That is all I ask. To slow down, if even for a few minutes to be with me. So many times you have been saddened by the words you read on that screen, of other of my kind, passing. Sometimes we die young and oh so quickly, sometimes so suddenly it wrenches your heart out of your throat. Sometimes, we age so slowly before your eyes that you may not even seem to know until the very end, when we look at you with grizzled muzzles and cataract clouded eyes. Still the love is always there, even when we must take that long sleep, to run free in a distant land. I may not be here tomorrow; I may not be here next week. Someday you will shed the water from your eyes, that humans have when deep grief fills their souls, and you will be angry at yourself that you did not have just "One more day" with me. Because I love you so, your sorrow touches my spirit and grieves me. We have NOW, together. So come, sit down here next to me on the floor, and look deep into my eyes. What do you see? If you look hard and deep enough we will talk, you and I, heart to heart. Come to me not as "alpha" or as "trainer" or even "Mom or Dad," come to me as a living soul and stroke my fur and let us look deep into one another's eyes, and talk. I may tell you something about the fun of chasing a tennis ball, or I may tell you something profound about myself, or even life in general. You decided to have me in your life because you wanted a soul to share such things with. Someone very different from you, and here I am. I am a dog, but I am alive. I feel emotion, I feel physical senses, and I can revel in the differences of our spirits and souls. I do not think of you as a "Dog on two feet" -- I know what you are. You are human, in all your quirkiness, and I love you still. Now, come sit with me, on the floor. Enter my world, and let time slow down if only for 15 minutes. Look deep into my eyes, and whisper to my ears. Speak with your heart, with your joy and I will know your true self. We may not have tomorrow, and life is oh so very short. --Love, (on behalf of canines everywhere) Author Unknown

Thunderstorms and Things That Go Bump!

Well, we had thunderstorms here in SE Texas yesterday. As everyone who knows me is aware, I HATE thunder. Daddy came home to find me hiding out in the bathroom. Mommy had left my crate open for me so I could go into it, but that's not what I wanted to do! Then daddy walked me, and something scared me, and I hightailed it right back to my house and underneath the end table next to the bed.

Gosh, I hope today's a better day for this little corn terror doggie!

Well, mommy and daddy took me to the vet this morning to have my kennel cough vaccination and my toenails clipped. I hate car rides, and I'm not crazy about going to the vet either! But I survived the whole experience just fine.

It's been cold and rainy, that is cold for SE Texas, today, and rainy. The temperature never got above 42 degrees. Now I don't undertand why I didn't get my usual long walks!! After all I don't care if it's cold and wet, what's with these humans??

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!!

I Saw a Wabbit!!!

This morning mommy was walking me, and I was sniffing around and rooting through the grass. Guess what? I found a wabbit, a big ole wabbit, and I don't know which one of us was more surprised to see the other one. The wabbit wan off under de barbed wire fence, and I wanted to chase it, but Mommy held onto my leash and said I couldn't go under dat fence. DRATS! I cried and whined for a long time wanting to go on the chase.

Dis is de first big ole wabbit I habs found on one of my walkies, and it was so exciting.

Mommy Started a New Job!

Mommy started a new job on Monday that requires her to be away from home real early in the morning and then she gets home later too. I miss mommy, but I am such a lucky girl cause Daddy only works part-time cause he's "semi-retired" whatever that means. He has been home with me and has been giving me wonderful long walks and has been loving on me and giving me lots of petting and tummy rubs.

I am SO glad to see Mommy when she gets home. I have even started giving her a cairn kiss, and I am not much on kissies.

That's about it for now.

My Angel Brother and Sister

These are the angel dogs that preceded me here in our home. Impy is the wire hair fox terrier and Max is the mixed breed cairn terrier/dachshund. Mommie and Daddie loved them VERY much and when they went to the Bridge there were huge holes in their hearts. Mommie and Daddie believe that Impy and Max had their paws in making me a member of the family.

My Name is Cassie

My name is Cassie, and I am a 6 year old cairn terrier. I have begun a new life as a loved family pet after spending the first 5 1/2 years of my life as a puppymill mommy.

I am a black brindle girl with red undertones and some silver in my coat. My mommy and daddy think that I'm be-u-te-ful!

I was brought into my mommy and daddy's lives to help heal their broken hearts after my angel brother Max and my angel sister Impy went to the Bridge.

Col Potter Cairn Terrier rescue brought me from the puppymill and then a foster home, then a forever home that didn't work out. Then mommy and daddy fostered me and adopted me! Lucky me!! They love me a lot.

I hope to share my new life with you here on this blog. Mommy is new at blogging, so she hopes you will be patient with her.
