August 19th was my birthday

I had the best time at the lake for my birthday. I went camping for the days and it was amazing. Thank you to everyone for all the birthday wishes and for making my birthday so special.

My dog Little Bear came very close to dying

Recently my dog became pregnant. Little Bear will be 11 in February and I thought she was too old to become pregnant. And it was by the smallest dog I know Facebones.

No pups came out and I belive she had a miscarriage. When I called the vet, the amount they said I would have to put down to do a C-section, well lets just way I would have to work for a month and a half without eating or electric to pay it. Even if I got the money together then there is no guarantee she would even survive the procedure and if she was dying I did not want her last minutes to be in surgery. It was rough for 2 days straight I could barely do anything and  I slept on a blow up matres next to her. I thought she was dying in my arms like 20 times. Even now I am choking back  tears to write this. It really shook me up. At work I was so worried I would come home to her lifeless body and then a miracle.

Today was the worst when I woke up little bear was really in a poor condition but I had to go to work because I had taken too much time off to be with her. I raced home when I got off and she was up for the first time in days tail waging and barking like crazy. And now the happy tears are flowing because I am so lucky. It is a blessing from god. I have such reason to count my blessing and little Bear is now at the top of that list.

I have had little Bear 10 years and maybe I will have her 10 more.

I still am in shock about her pulling through. I am so lucky to have my best friend for this extra time.
