Whew! The last two days have been a whirlwind….I got a text on Monday that the American Kennel Club (AKC) would be out for inspection on Wednesday, so we went into high gear to make sure that everything was spic and span….I am a perfectionist at heart and I am over the top about everything being organized and in order, so, even though I drive my husband crazy, he supports my compulsions! 🙂
Of course, everything went well and the Inspector raved about my cleanliness and organization, but we needed a good “spring cleaning” anyway. It sure feels good to have it done.
Babies are doing great and growing every day. I love seeing the mamas dote on their babies….always warms my heart.
Hope you are all having a wonderful week….
May 15, 2018
It has been the most glorious, cool, rainy Spring…very unusual for our area, but it has been wonderful.
Today, with the humidity at 90% and high temps….well it’s sauna time again.
Things are in full swing here with blackberries needing harvested, peaches coming in, tomatoes getting ripe….we are “alive” with harvest.
Picking blackberries this morning was interesting with 5 pomeranians curiously gathering around….some getting tangled in the blackberry thorns, wondering who snagged them, :), and some actually trying to eat the blackberries….reminded me of trying to pick blackberries with 5 two year olds! Needless to say…I will try again later on my own.
Penny had her litter this week….text book delivery and I even got to sleep for most of the night! Yay! She had 2 blue merles and 2 parti merles….gorgeous litter! All boys….I will be posting her pups later this week.
I hope everyone is enjoying their last bit of Spring before Summer is upon us. Things are beautiful here with babies abounding….baby calves, baby horses, baby apples, baby peaches, baby chickens, and baby poms! Life is good….
This year is turning out to be a tough one….I lost my only brother to cancer this past month and way too soon. I have been out of state at least once a month for the past year and it is beginning to show around here….but I wouldn’t have changed it for anything.
Cancer is such a wicked disease….seeing it up close and personal….just so wrong…..almost like an alien has taken possession of the body to do with as he pleases….
He will be greatly missed….he was so loved and his personality was bigger than life….so hard to understand, but I know there is a greater purpose and he is free of pain and suffering, and I will see him again…..
Coming home to a “new” normal is a challenge, but I am trying to get my head straight and in the game again….my heart will be a long time healing, but life marches on and I am trying to find the beauty and goodness around me again and to have a grateful heart. I am keenly aware of the brevity of life and I do not want to miss a moment.
I hope your year has been better than mine, but I know we are all in this together and we can do it.
I had a litter of four beautiful little creatures born this week and I am reminded again of the miracle of life. This was Gemma’s first litter and it never ceases to amaze me how these mamas know exactly what to do the moment the pup is in the world…..she is such a great mom and we are so blessed with these tiny new creatures. I will be posting the litter sometime this week.
Spring in Texas this year has been incredibly beautiful and has stayed cool…(which we will take any day). I hope you are enjoying all the color with the wildflowers in bloom and the trees blossoming….my favorite time of year.
If you are needing a new little baby to love….let me know….we should have a wonderful group of puppies this Spring and Summer and there is nothing that will bring you as much joy as a new baby pomeranian! 🙂
January 5, 2018
Is it really 2018?!….this past year has been as fast as a merry go round.
This past year has been so full and I have learned so many things I never thought I would need to know….very difficult in so many ways, but rising to the challenges has made me wiser and stronger (I hope).
I know there will be many more new challenges this year, but I am facing this year head on….looking for the best and counting my blessings and promising myself to be thankful every day. At this stage of life every day is a blessing and I want to use it well.
My goal for this year is to embrace all the things I have put on the back burner for so long now….trying not to have unrealistic expectations but one can dream, right?! Seems like we start new big projects every year but this year I hope to finish some of those projects! LOL
We have retired a lot of our moms this past year and will retire several more this year so we have a lot of new moms coming up….always fun because we never really know what they will give us until the puppies get here. We are super excited about all of our newest moms….very sweet and so pretty! We have also added a new white stud that may be giving us some pretty babies by late this year…he is the sweetest little guy in the world.
I hope you are all looking forward to positive things this year and embracing the future with boldness and courage. May this New Year be filled with Love, Laughter and Sweet Lemonade!!!
