Missed Monday Memories so I'll do it on Tues.

My yesterdays family. Look at Joker smiling with Tom!!! All three of these dogs were so very special. I had them to short of a time. Amanda whippet lived until she was 10 years and 4 months. Joker was 12 and 3 months when I lost him. Both dogs died of kidney failure. When Amanda was diagnosed the vet said there was nothing I could do to help her!!! He was so so wrong!! With Joker I did not recognize any symptoms and he really had very little but he did have a couple that I should have seen.
Bruce got cancer when he was only 6 years old and we lost him before he made 7.
Much to short of time with these wonderful dogs. That is why I am cooking all Bambi's food now so I can keep her going longer!!!! It is a lot of extra work but they are so worth it!!!!
I would have done it for them if I had known that it would help so much!!!

I love my comments!!

Love coming your way, Bambi & Fern


  1. Such a Nice Monday/Tuesday Momory post.

    I like it when my mom makes home made foods fur me. This week.. it was Fresh Beef Kidneys with barley and oatmeal and carrots and cranberries. She cleaned the kidneys and then cookered them with the other stuffs and then put them through the Grinder thingy. YUM
    YES... it is a lot of work... butt she loves me and... I love her cookering skills.
    My dad brought the kidneys home with him.. after helping to butcher the beef fur our friend.

  2. What beautiful dogs! They just aren't with us long enough... I had a dog that lived to be twenty-something, then I had one that got cancer and died at thirteen. I wish they would live as long as us. It is so heartbreaking to lose a pet!!! Loved these memories, Fern. And look at that gorgeous long hair of yours :) Hugs to you and Bambi!

  3. Hi Fern your special cooking talents and TLC to all you love keep them healthy and happy!

  6. Nice pictures Fern. Your dogs are beautiful!

  7. Well, you know I think Amanda and Joker are awfully darned cute, but I have to admit, those hairy Shepherds do have their appeal!


  8. Hello dear friend! Great pics! You certainly had long hair in that first pic! Still snowing and cold here in the great land of Minnesota....hoping for an early spring. Have a fun weekend -- keep smiling!

  9. Awhh, it's great to remember furry friends, past and present. I hope you've had a nice weekend, Fern.
