I've GOT the BEST DAMN Sisters in THE World!


I'm the middle child------and although I'm now 60, my older sis is 65, my baby sis is 57...we still act like kids, bringing home rocks, birds with broken wings and lost puppies.  I will try to not type in all caps...
I'm sitting here with my 2 broken arms....one finger typing I've got all day so its not so hard to do.  I'm waiting on the fam (Mom n Big Sis) who went off to kill a bear for tonight's meal..
Nah they probably went to Walmart...I don't shop there myself I go to the IGA...but that's me.
I stayed home with the 4 dogs!!! Read FOUR ... there is my 2 Flossie n Annie...both saved from starvation 6 yrs ago....then my sisters dog Jim, he was found lost n wandering the streets of fort Collins CO and rescued by my big sis 4 yrs ago...he made the trip with them from Silt, Colorado... that's 1800 miles away!!!! Then there is the newest arrival to our family MAGGIE.


... here is how Maggie came to MY house.
My baby sis (who came to my immediate rescue when I hit the floor a few weeks back) had a dream...in that dream her dogs, Spanky and Indy who have passed over the rainbow bridge, sent her to look for this dog in need....she went on Petfinders.com and saw this dog in a shelter in Canton, OHIO. Blog friends we live in SC! But she didn't let that stop her....the staff at Spark Pound said this dog was not going to be easy to place she growls and hides from everyone and would be euthanized.  So my sister got in her car after WORK....@ 9pm drove TO CANTON, OHIO and adopted this dog the next morning...drove back that day got her shots the next morning at her local vets...called us we drove half way to her town...met her in a gas station parking lot and the dog came home with us for the next 11 days as my sister is the President of a quilting fabric company and the biggest show of the season starts in Houston, TX this weekend  SO I'M once again dog sitting for her. (2 broken arms n all) THE dog was NOT aggressive...just scared to death...the pound  had been using a catch pole on her--- omg, the poor thing!! She is as sweet as sweet can be....we think greyhound mixed with shar-pei? Her nails were so long even after the vet cut them, still an inch long.  My sis named her Maggie...and we have taken to calling her Mags!!! Another life saved!! My sisters are something else
 they put their actions where their hearts are!!
I LOVE YOU GUYS! 
They don't read my blog but I don't care I need the world to know how special they are!!


PEACE

  6. Your sister is president of a fabric company? Wow!! I'll bet the dogs are good company. They are pretty lucky to be adopted into a family of such a loving trio!

  7. It's funny...actually sad...how seldom blogger's family members read their heartfelt (read "guts") writings that spill out on the page. It is good, and noble of you, to excuse their absence. It hurts on some level, I know...Been there. Heal up and live on.

  8. Pound Puppies are the best breed! We were camped in Tetonia Idaho when our hometown shelter showed Radar's photo! Hometown being in Apalachicola FL! We called and found out that Radar was scheduled to be put down the next day! He was heartworm positive and nobody wanted to put out the bucks $$$ to save him. We did and we have never been sorry! He is an amazing furkid!
