Rough Days Ahead

Well, it is getting to the day when I'll have to put my beautiful sweet Westie down. She has been suffering from a genetic disease for the last 14 months. Life expectation is between 9-18 months. I don't think she can make the 18. But my family and I feel blessed that she has lived so well up until now. The vet says an infection will probably force us to make the decision. But she's strong, has a good attitude and appetite, so I think we will just end up making the decision based on how uncomfortable she appears. The disease causes extreme difficulty with breathing and it has come to the point that my other dog is looking at her and making little crying noises whenever her breathing is really labored. I'm afraid it will be this week. It never ceases to amaze me at how animals become family to us.

So here are 2 cards that I made this weekend. I am continuing to work on my Christmas cards. I "sewed" some beads on to the word which is a template from Bazzill Basics. The other is a kinda' case from a blog. I'm still not very good at getting the blogs into my posts. I have to work on that, but I hate to practice on my readers. WHOOPIE, I got 4 comments on my last blog.

I hope everyone has a good week this week. And don't stay up too late watching the convention, let me do that for ya' (smile).

I'm so sorry to hear about your dog. I know what you mean about our pets are like family. I love my pets and like you and hate to see them suffer. My thoughts are with you and your dog.
