My Name Is Harry

Thank You
to all that left comments after my last post. 
It is never easy losing a pet which has become part of your family. 

Within hours of being in the house with just the cats I called hubby in tears. This is to hard I miss her so much. I want another dog. I know it is to soon..but when is it not going to hurt. 

So I started looking. Some looking mess I was in tears at the computer looking for dogs..with no enthusiasm at all..just looking.
After our Pyr Sammy died we always said we would get another and maybe this was the time. 

As it turned out I saw an ad with pictures of Golden Doodles. 
Not sure how I would feel about it we went to see them. 
With low vision I said to hubby..your decision whatever you say..we can still look for another Pyr or maybe it is to soon and we need to wait.

Arriving we found a wonderful breeder who had been doing this for 9 years and this was the last litter. It was time for her to retire and spend some time travelling with her husband.  We met both the female and male dogs. Very friendly and well behaved just loved them both.
It was not long and hubby  walked over to Little Harry and said..this is the one. 
I was so surprised because I knew he really wanted another Pyr.  
Nope he said this little fella I really like..lets take him. 
Well with the low shedding and a lot of other positives  like the parents on site and likng what I was game if he was. 

So here is Little Harry 

I  am still having my moments thinking of my Kally girl but I know she is out of pain and that is a big issue with me. 
This little fella brings with him some laughs and the hope he has a healthier life than our poor Kally had. 

This little fella is one smart pup. Sits for his leash..very few piddles..runs for the  door when he wants out. I think we have a good pup so far. 
No regrets getting another so fast. It is a compliment to Kally that she left such a void in my lives as big as she did that it was not a home with her gone. 

Let the games

We are now living in Harry's 
It should be an interesting ride. 

Helen-Mary maybe I can make a dog bed for him..thanks for posting your project. 

Have a Wonderful Safe Canada Day Weekend.

Goodbye My Little Kally Girl

Kally came to us as a sweet little pup. 
Easy to train with a very quiet personality.
An overall sweet dog.
Unless there were socks 
She ate over a dozen socks in her 8 years with us. 
It did not seem to matter how careful we were or our guests. She could find them and off to the Vet again. 
We finally figured out all her secrets, thank
The big thing was her allergies. 
23 of them!!!!
Yes we tested her and it was staggering!!

For most of her life this poor pup had to be on steroids. 
We tried everything and always had to come back to the pills. 

At 2 she was x-rayed to find both her hips were completely out of the sockets. 
We decided to keep her until she showed severe issues with that also. 

We paid for a Pure Registered Breedable Puppy. 
Needless to say we never did breed her. 

In the end it was the allergies that took her. 
Because of the steroids she got Cushings Disease. 
Finally it was time to say goodbye to my best friend. 

We had our daily routine and our special times of the day. She was my other half. 
It is hard  to not have her in my life and only in my heart. 

Another pup will have to make its way into my heart the way Kally did. 
Because I live where and how I do there will be another dog. 
The tears will be there still but mixed with happy ones I hope. 

I sure miss my Little Kally Girl
Such a Special Dog and My

Low Vision & My Cart

My blog title should change but no...I like it and even with not being able to sew very much it may as well stay. 

The horses still are my number one love and sewing used to be my second. It has been taken over with my dealing with low vision. More stories on that to follow Maybe a little subtitle is needed. 

My little cart is working out well for the warm weather. There are issues  that are interesting at times. I do stay very close to the grass when driving up the road to the barn. Last week a very wide load  with a pilot truck front and back along with two police cars whipped past me. OH MY!! He did not come close to me..but the overall size and my little cart..WOW! 

To think I used to drive a tractor trailer and take wide loads out west with my hubby..and now to my little cart. LOL

Talk about

The one thing you need when dealing with most problems in life is humour. Believe me it is being used over time right now. 

Services for people with low vision are expensive if even available. Just going for a Dr. appointment takes major planning with both drivers (if you can find one) and the Dr.'s office. 

The one thing people say is call me if you need anything. That is not easy. You know they are working and have other issues they are dealing with  so you don't like to bother them. 

If you know someone out there with health issues not just vision loss. Change that and call them and say I am going shopping or to the medical building on such and such day ..would you like to go with me. Just that small change makes it so much easier on the persons guilt feeling and in the planning. 

Vision loss is nothing compared to so many other health issues. It is just a darn pain in the butt trying to get from here to Oh ya!! and a few other My main point could be a heck of a lot worse. 
One day at a time
It is a learning process
