Zoie had a play date

Yesterday Zoie and I had company.

 When I gave Tinker back to the rescue group it broke my heart!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I wanted another dog and I knew it had to be a bigger dog so that the dog would not be able to dig out of the fence so easily!!! Of course I wanted another sight hound!  I was in touch with a retired Greyhound rescue group but nothing was happening.  One of the group knew about this Weimaraner that so badly needed a good home.   I waited for 2 weeks for some one to show me me a dog or even just say hey we are very busy we haven't forgot you. But no one did. So I said we would see the Weimaraner.   The rest is history!!
Remember I told you all that I developed a thyroid problem about 18 years ago.  This lazy thyroid causes hair loss though out the body.  I told you that my hair has finally turned gray and that I am going to be 76 years old next month!!!  Well you all have seen pictures of me when I was younger not of me now!!  I see pictures of myself and I think oh my God I look so old!!!  Then I think WELL YOU ARE OLD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am going to show you me now!!!!!!  I don't feel like I look!!!  I feel like I use to look and Tom tells me he still see the girl I use to be not the now me!!!
Yesterday we had a play date with a new friend Elaine and her Greyhound Kristy!!
They came about 1 Pm and left after 3 pm. Here are the pictures!!  Loading pictures on Blogger are not what it use to be!!!
Kristy loved me so much and there was a little jealousy coming from both dogs!! But soon the dogs were enjoying each other and  being together in there running around the yard !!!  It all ended very well!!!
Love coming your way,  Zoie and  Fern 


  1. Miss Fern, you look happy, and that's all that matters. And we know you get lots of exercise, so you are healthy too. We are glad you and Zoie had lots of fun with your new friends.

    Heidi, Tucker and Daisy

  2. Beautiful pictures of you and Zoie, Miss Fern!

  3. All of you look so happy. I'm glad Zoie is working out so well.


  4. Hi Fern, I think you are beautiful but I understand what you mean; when I looked at my passport photo from 10 yrs ago I almost died because I look so much older now.
    So glad you had a good time with Kristy and hopefully it will be the start of many get togethers. Have a warm day my friend.
    Noreen & Reggie
