"Then when I leave this earth I'll be with the angels standin'
I'll be out there waiting for my true companion Just for my true companion."
Every now and then we are fortunate enough to share our lives with a beloved pet, that not only owns our heart, but our soul. This little girl, Etoile Private Dancer of Ballymena, was the one that owned mine. Emergency surgery on Monday, showed that Dancer had an aggressive tumor in her throat. Out of kindness to my companion, I let her go, but it is so very hard to say good-bye to these dear little ones. Sleep well my dear little Dancer.
After 2 days of crying, I am determined to not let this post be depressing, so I have taken a few pictures pf the puppies. It truly is "the circle of life" here. The 2 puppies are growing quickly now. They are starting to make little growling sounds as they struggle to get on their feet. Such funny little babies. The smaller puppy will be named after my dear Dancer. She will be Ballymena Tiny Dancer and we will call her Dora, after the famous dancer, Isadora Duncan. I have not come up with a name for the larger puppy yet, but she is a cutie too. Both girls most likely will stay here :-)
Finally!!!!!! I finished my cloverleaf sock for the six sock knit around. I don't think that I have ever been so happy to finish a project as I have this one!! I have started the second "wave" sock and I must say that I do enjoy, not only the pattern, but the yarn that I am using as well. We will be heading on a trip to Pennsylvania this week, so with all of the driving time, both too and fro, I am hoping to get this sock finished. I will also get a jump start on the flower basket shawl knit around too. This time I hope to be a bit ahead of the game, than lagging behind this time...LOL.
As I mentioned above, we will be heading out to Pennsylvania. It is a combination trip. My husband's family lives in Chambersburg, PA, so my DH and my 2 younger daughters will visit with the family and I will head on over to York, PA , for a dog show. I am hoping to finish my girl, Milkeyn Felicity of Ballymena. She only needs this one major to finish, so keep your fingers crossed for us!!! I will post some pictures of the show when I come home.
I heard from my Secret Pal again :-))). She sent me this lovely handmade card.. She also left a comment that a package was being mailed out on Thursday :-). We will be away until Monday evening, but it will be so nice to come home to a present. After the ups and downs of the past few weeks, a present is going to be nice!! Thank you, Secret Pal :-)
Have a nice few days :-))!!!! I look forward to blogging when I come home.
