BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages
(click to see movie trailer)

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.

~~~~~~~~~~

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

Sunday is for Family

Mother
Tybee Island, Ga
1948



Sassy was disappointed that the snow flurries didn't amount to much. She's content to stay inside and work on her Nylabone.

I found your Blog the other day and was drawn by your PRECIOUerFur Babies !! I just got my Black Lab Pup ( Hank ) what a sweet sweet boy ... Stolen my heart already !!!...lOL..I also was reading your older posts and noticed under a photo of you and your Mother it said Erie, Pa. Well....small world I am from Erie ( right now live in Girard, but still in Erie County just a few miles west on the shore. My Mother's Family is 100% Polish and Catholic and grew up on the East side of Erie in the Late 1930's - Present..... Maybe our family members from way back were acquainted even , who knows ??...
Sounds like you have a full and fun life with your pooch's and travel.... I am enjoying your posts about Alaska and the Iditarod and such...I've always thought I would want to live there...I miss wide open spaces...we had a 125 acre dairy farm for years...ahhhh...nostalgia...lol
Come back and visit my Blog and read about my new adventures with Hanky Panky the Super duper woof woof.... ( so corny I know)

What memeories this pic brings. Not that I remember Tybee in 1948, but the pier looks remarkably like what I remember from the 50s. And so uncrowded! You would not believe how they have stuck a building in every nook and crannie! Mamma could not believe it when we went last year because she had not been in so long. Who is in the car? Your dad? Love Sundays! SH

Lab Lady: Thanks for passing the info on to xpipelyner to check DNM mail. I assumed you were referring to my mail.
Also want you to know that I enjoy your posts. Read them every day...for that matter, a few times a day. Also thoroughly enjoy your Dogdaze blog. Have you ever thought about writing a book? Your writing is incredible. Great photo's too I might add. Keep up the good work.
I'm not a writer myself but do enjoy everyone's postings....some informative, some educational...and some can be hillarious at times which also makes them all sooooo interesting. God Bless.

Sassy looks very content to be inside today....Boo on the other hand wanted nothing but to be out on the deck all day howling into the air....the neighbors love us.

I love the pics you post of your family, times long gone but not forgotten. Bittersweet and filled with memories. BTW, visited the link for blog backgrounds and found one for my blog. You have the neatest ideas.

Thought I would pass on a link to a good friend's blog since you are a mushing fan. She is a sprint musher here in Fairbanks who was selected to race for Team USA in the World Championships in Daaquam, Quebec this week.

Jennifer has been the Limited North American Champion here in the 6 dog class. Her dogs are amazing! She has helped my daughter learn to sprint race as well, and helped her participate in the Junior North American Sled Dog Championships for 2 years. Jennifer's own children are also amazing dog mushers!

Sprint racing is shorter distance dog mushing for speed. The races are typically 3 day events. The dogs are very different than those that race long distance such as the Yukon Quest and the Iditarod.
I hope you check out her blog as she undertakes this major event. I am fully expecting her to win!

Here's her site:

And by the way, I am a 2nd grade teacher. Been at it for 20 years!
