Hi everyone!  Cant believe it has been awhile since I have come on my blog.  I guess I had been busy feeling sorry for myself!

I had been running for exercise and was actually getting pretty good at.  I had lost some weight and was able to run 5 miles at a time in 13 weeks.  I was really starting to feel and look great.....until this.....

Yes that's my leg and that's Rudy in the background pouting from lack of doggie walks for 3 weeks.

Anyway, in the process of trying to better myself I pushed myself too hard and now have a tibia fracture and of course they don't heal very fast!  It is awful wearing this thing in the heat we have been having and I'm miserable....My summer has actually been a waste to say the least!

One a happier note, there is a new member in our family.  He is a great Pyrenees/Aussie mix and he was shipped from Oklahoma to Wisconsin from a puppy mill to our humane society.  He had six brothers and sisters and I hope they have all found good homes too.  Yukon is a super smart dog and learns tricks easy...He is 9 weeks old and already knows how to sit and shake hands.  Hes not mine though...I'm just his gramma....but he comes to run with my six doggies often.

I have my 52nd birthday and my daughter, son in law and granddaughters surprised me with a small exciting and thoughtful it was!

Yummy cake!

I also spent lots of time with my grand kids and doggies...just sitting around.

ahhhh...this is the life!

Hope everybody has had a great summer....I expect to have a great fall season as soon as my boot comes off.  We are already planning a hiking/camping trip in September....cant wait!


  1. Happy birthday! And so sad about the fracture. :(

    Seriously? An Aussie/Pyrenees? And from a puppy mill? Was there a mistake in the mix? Are the rest of the pups in Wisconsin, or still in Oklahoma? I'm in Tulsa and have Aussie mixes, but have been thinking of adding a Pyrenees. Hm.

  2. Hope you feel better soon, and your new pup is adorable and what a mix! I cant wait to see how his looks change as he grows

  3. Oh dear, sorry to hear about the fracture! My Mum did two major fractures to her leg a few years back so understands your frustration - have you tried going to the pool? You can even run in the pool and it sure helps mentally as well as physically :)

    Congrats on your birthday, that cake looks yummy :)

    So happy to hear of your new family member Yukon :)

    Big Wags to all,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  4. Hope you had a great birthday, well, not so great if you broke your leg, but at least you get to put your feet up... GET WELL SOON.

  5. Welcome back, mom! It's been some time and we're glad you're back... Although, we're sorry about the tibia fracture thingy. We know how it feels to be immobile for a long time. It's frustrating.

    Belated happy 52nd Birthday!

    Huggies and Cheese,


  6. I can't make mom feel better, but I am holding a blogging contest that will make the babies feel better if they win! It's yesterday's post.
