Meeting Blair

Jack frost visited this morning, he left the blades of the grass all frozen, and with that, a mystical haze of wispy mist..

As we near our Winter Solstice I cant but wish the days away until the lighter half of the year is upon us. I know I shouldn’t really, but the early morning chores are being done in total silent darkness now. The flock don’t bother to get up to greet me anymore, they just lay in the nesting boxes and watch as I go about cleaning and filling their water containers and food bowls with my frozen iced curled fingers. Our Cassie lays on her rug and can only muster the power to raise one eyelid to spy the slightly irritating happenings around her as I stomp my purple coloured muck boots to get a little circulation going to my matching coloured popsicle toes.

There is only me and the dark morning sky sprinkled with just a few glittering stars. A time of  beautiful peace.. peace just before the onslaught of warming groans and excited yappings, from our newest member of the family, as the rest of the abode awakens from their cocooned warmth of slumber land.

A new member to the family I hear your inquisitive minds ask… Yes dear friends, the tiniest most beautiful puppy breath ever has graced our little abode with newly found excited squeals that echo through the forest from the boys.

Meet the little lady Blair who has been keeping us all very busy with her silly puppy antics and new found puppy yappings.

How much is enough

There are times when emotions just cannot be put in to words no matter how hard you try.

That may be why I haven’t written a proper post for a little while now.

Please look at this face and tell me you can’t see the love that radiates from those beautiful brown eyes surrounded by a thick line of eyeliner and folded wrinkles..

This beautiful soul, as most of you know, is our precious Cassie.
Cassie has been our devoted friend for just over 7 years.
Never an ailment, never a complaint. Always the happiest and most loving of souls…

Over the last couple of months, she has not been well…
And I fear, that we have done everything we can to help..
But what is really “enough”?
And how far does one go without being selfish and thinking of one’s own emotions before another’s ??

It has been a long couple of months while we have had to come to a decision..
One that of course we are still not entire comfortable with… maybe we are still hoping for a miracle?

Our Cassie has been diagnosed with that horrid disease….. cancer, of the mouth.
Apparantly this is common in Shar-pei’s??

All the medication we have tried only helps for a small period of time and then just as suddenly as she is well ~ then she is not.
This last load of meds is the final course… enough time to say goodbye??

How much is enough… when you know when??
