Sorry folks. Just logged in first time since the 5th msg. box full on Stratics. I tried to respond to most of ye. I been offline due to Sheltie nurse care. I am feeding the dog by hand since he can not eat his fav dry food yet he is not allowed to ...canned food in a tiny bowl several times a day till he gets used to eating again...meds every few hours etc. ----------- And today, I been busy making pies, cupcakes, turkey cookies and lasagna cuz our oldest daughter is FINALLY getting to come home to visit from San Diego. She will be with us for about 2 wks. Natch, momma is making all her fav. foods for *halloween, thanksgiving and christmas* all at once here. And I plan to take her out on Veterans Day ........my lil girl been in the Navy since 92 and seldom gets home !! Thus we are gonna CELEBRATE ! *after she meets two Sheltie dogs that, she does not know, yet* I hope to restock when I can at me vendors... as I can for the next couple of weeks, but for now, rl plate will be busy, I have soo missed my daughter living so far away, after 4 yrs.... finally...she gets to come home YAY !!!.
