Daisy changed to Shelby Lynn

We gave Daisy Mae to our son Eric who adopted her. He changed her name to Shelby Lynn. Last Weekend he took her home..I already miss her so much.
Eric is a good daddy though and wrote us the following

Hey just wanted to fill you in on shelby and her first night home. It's in her point of view
She cried until we got to 1620, then got tired and slept the rest of the way.
When we got home Amy was really excited to meet her and let her out of the carrier right away.
The first thing Shelby saw was Tanner. She never seen a dog that big, and then there was this other puppy(Buster) that had a really ugly face, and it scared the piss out of her right in Amy's lap.
She soon found out that things wer'nt so bad and opened up to the nice lady,(Amy) that gave her some tasty cheese. The cheese had some special flea medicine in it for puppies, but she didn't know that.mmmmmmm cheese.
She met the big dog who was really nice, but was kind of scared and avoided her.
The bouncy puppy with the ugly face wanted to meet her and play, but she was scared. So, she hid behind her master, (Me) and made a mean growl.
The ugly puppy got scared and ran away.Then, this (fuzzy) demon came out and made a scarry hissing noise.
She ran for her life back to the safety of my arms.We decided to take her on her first walk to get rid of some of that energy, so she could sleep.
She did really good.
Tanner and buster came with us, and I think it helped her to see that it was okay to be led around and that it was a fun thing.
The only fighting was at the end of the driveway, when she plopped down and pouted. Besides that she had fun and liked it.
It also helped her bond a little with the other 2.
When we got back to the house everybody got some food and then put to bed.
We put the cage where she could see Buster and Tanner in their kennals, so she could cope and get used to the idea. She cried for maybe 30min and then crashed.THE END

I plan to wake up early, so I can go to the pet shop to get some stuff, give her a bath,and set an appointment for her puppy shots and exam. Then I gotta be back by 1, so I can get ready and leave for work by 2.
Yeah, it's pretty late, so I should go to bed now. I'll try to call tomorrow, or you can call meStay tuned for more of Shelby's adventures to come.Love you mom and dad

Happy Mothers Day

This is my first Mothers Day without my Mom. It is a sad day for me, but I just try to remember last year when I made Mom a banner and got her some flowers.
My Mom was always the funny one in the family. She told the corniest jokes, but she always made us laugh. I don't remember a time where she let life get her down. She always had a positive attitude about everything. She was really good at finding the silver lining in things.
My mom was a school teacher and even taught me in 6th grade. She was my PE teacher. She was tougher on me than the other students, but I understood.
Growing up with my Mom was full of surprises and adventures. She made every holiday special. She always remembered my birthday and treated me like a princess. She was the disciplinarian in the family as well. It would break my heart when she was upset with me. One time when I needed a spanking for something I was crying before she ever lifted the ruler. She felt sorry for me and let me go sit in my room to think about my behavior. She was very creative with her discipline. The worst though I think was when she would say....not sure what we will do about this...I need to think about it for awhile....I would just rather of had the spanking and be done with it.
All this makes her sound like she was a mean momma. But she was far from that.
She loved me enough to discipline me. She kept me out of doing things wrong and paying a bigger price for it later.
I really miss her alot.
I have an only child but I will probably not be seeing him today. He is a chef in a big restaurant and I seriously doubt he will be able to come home today....although he does like to surprise me....not holding my breath though. and I do understand.
Rick is making me some breakfast and said he wants to take me out later today. Emily my niece brought me over a cheesecake....there goes my diet! Do calories count if it is for Mother's Day?
One more thing I need to tell you...
Daisy Mae...Sadie's new puppy has a new name now. Eric wanted to name her Xerox....I said no.
So we agreed on Shelby Lynn.
He said he didn't want to be yelling for her calling her Daisy....something about it sounded feminine or something...whatever LOL
I will try to take some new pictures of Shelby. She is a handful. She has teeth now and already eating regular dog food and drinking water.
Sadie is getting back some of her puppy ways too.
Ok well I hope you all have a Happy Mothers Day!
And if you still have your Mom with you this year....hug her for me :)
Until next time....xoxBarb
