We are so blessed today. Rob had his second MRI following his second cycle of chemotherapy. The results were "Great, clear, clean". We are so thankful. You can read about it on their Caring Bridge if you would like. The link is to the right on my blog.

This is a photo of their family on their recent trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

We have also been blessed with a new family member. Buddy was picked up by the local animal shelter over a year ago, extremely frightened and timid, with a healed fractured and deformed left front leg for which he had never received treatment. He spent the next year in foster are with a wonderful family who loved him dearly. But he never found the right Forever Home, perhaps because of his fear or his disability. When I started thinking of adding a younger dog to our mix, I went online to the local rescue groups, and there was his sweet face. The rest is history. His foster mom thought we were the right family for him, at last, and we knew we wanted him. Despite his old injury, he is totally mobile and can run like the wind. Still quite timid, but boy does he love some loving.

Take care,
