Living an involuntary hermit's life. Working towards living a healthier, gluten-free, hopefully cancer free life with my 2 dogs, 3 chickens and loving family.

Living with intention

When stumbling through life isn't good enough anymore..... decide to be yourself and enjoy life, and pay attention to Gods gifts all around.

Beautified Beau

I haven't blogged lately about the love of my life...........uhhh I guess that's my husband. I mean my baby.................uhhh I guess that's my daughter B. Ok, I haven't blogged about the best companion on four feet, my sweet Beau. Remember the sheltie with Joe Pesci's personality. Well, I usually have him groomed every 6 to 8 weeks. But in dealing with having surgery and being hospitalized and trying to save a little. Beau went over 3 months without a grooming. He was bathed a couple times in between, but let me tell you it was a big mistake waiting that long. He actually looks very cute with his hair longer. But it is almost impossible to keep him clean and not smelling. His long hair collects everything. So this morning I couldn't take it any longer. I got him into the groomer at 12:30 and just picked him up. He is not as cute with it shorter but he smells good and looks more comfortable. So all is well and he gets some extra petting this evening I am sure.

This morning before grooming....................

And this afternoon after grooming.............................

Cute dog! I found you through the Down to earth blog, and was reading about your cancer story. I just wanted to let you know about my Aunt who was diagnosed with bowel cancer and had a colostomy. She went thru the surgeries and radiation and chemo in 1978 and she is still alive today at 90! never a relapse! And this was with treatment over 30 years ago! So hang in there. If she made it with such ancient treatment, I think your chances are much higher! Carol
