This is my mom and her dog, Bailey, I got the DNA kit for her too as she's mixed also, but she's a fraidy cat and we decided that my mom doing the swab in her mouth would be the least detrimental to her progress trusting and liking humans:-) I'll have to post her story when her her DNA results arrive...it's a cool one I think.
Here is Poly in her favorite spot with my dad.
...Limo is spreading Christmas Joy to my BIL, Stephen.

I hopped on him again yesterday and we walked around the dog pasture with Laura and Polo. My legs are sore again and it feels good.
I know you Canucks are laughing at my title saying I have no idea what "frightful" weather is:-) but I am jealous of your white Christmas!
Per Dr. Jason's suggestion we like to mix the bermuda hay with timothy when we can because it's courser and less likey to compact like the bermuda can. Having a choice of the bermuda and the timothy we usually found the timothy scattered around the stall the next day so this way it's all mixed and each bit should have a little of both.

Finally playtime not in my living room! Spooky and Limo used to play like this too and I can't believe that I never got any video of them playing outside. I'll have to find video of them later, but I did find a video of the barn owners' puppy terrorizing Limo last October.

But I'll admit, I do like her alot. She's become a pretty good dog and she has lot's of personality. She always has such a "happy with life" look on her face. When you pet her and scratch her neck she closes her eyes in complete and utter contentment. She is a great companion for Limo. There are times we have to step in and referee their playtime cuz they're pulling on ears and throats, but for the most part I don't worry.
She's turned into a pretty good farm dog too. To my amazement she does not chase the horses and has never tried- squirrels, deer and the heron and geese are a different story though. They are all fair game.

I haven't taken LimLim to the vet to access her "bum problem" yet... because the smell comes and goes, so when it goes I forget to make an appointment to take her. I also think the prob may have been from the recent kong ingredients- peanut butter and more mushy stuff. So I've been putting more of her Evo dogfood in it now instead of mushy stuff. I also had an idea, course I haven't asked yet cuz I keep forgetting to, but I was maybe gonna see if Lester vet, Dr. Matt could perhaps preform the procedure- but I still have to ask and see...

Like I mentioned before Lester and I played a part in John and Laura's wedding 5 years ago...and what home coming is complete without a picture with me in it? John has ALWAYs teased me about having too many pics of myself ever since he visited my apartment one time and saw a whole table full of framed pics of me and my animals, mostly Lester and I at horse shows Thank you very much! Anyways, ever since that and me sleeping in the back of his suburban after a greyhound field trip (everyone else was smashed in the vehicle) all stretched out he's called me the "Princess". He says I'm high maintenance and the worst kind, that I don't think I am.... well John is pretty HM himself:-)
But I'm very HAPPY to report that John is home! He came home this afternoon and I got to chat with him some. He was laying down on the sofa with his cat in his lap... He said he stumped his surgeon with the question of "what breed of cow did my heart valve come from", that's John for you!

So I have no idea what any of you have been up to because I haven't had anytime to check blogs, read email or do anything, but work. We decided this week would be a good one to disconnect over 800 nonpaying customers, while we're a man short in dispatch. I don't mind the busy work, but I'm VERY behind on my other work. I've also been working till 8pm.
John is doing better and better! He's in a private room (I think I read that today/ I haven't talked to Laura yet), they have made him get up and sit in a chair a few times a day, Laura was able to bring him some outside food- a smoothie, and some soup!
The ponies are tucked in tight with their blankies tonight, it's going to be in the low 20's by morning! :-o

Laura sounded like she was on cloud nine when she called :-) Yeah I'm so happy for her, for all of us!
Though their surgeries were far different from one another, both are Miracles.
John is still stable and in the ICU. Over the last day and a half John has been under lighter sedation with positive results. He's responding to the people around him, turning his head in the direction he hears someone talking and opening his eyes.
The next step is taking him off the ventilator, but the doctors won't rush it and won't give a day/ time.
keep jingling! Thank you all!
