summer has gone by so fast...

It's time for Rosie to go back to school in the UK.

Mika here is going to miss her the most because she is his guardian angel.

Now for a Mika update...

He went to the vet today for a check-up. He was his usual all excited self, so happy to see the vet and his assistant. The vet said he is alright and is healing fine.

 Of course he's fine. This picture will prove it to you.

Who knew he could dig three-legged too!

I would also like to bring your attention to a little poem we found from our newfie friends, Leroy and Sherman. It is a beautiful poem and I would love to share it all with you. (I've also added it in my sidebar on the right so you can always read it :D)

My Dogs Live Here

My dogs live here, they're here to stay.
You don't like pets, be on your way. 
They share my home, my food, my space. 
This is their home, this is their place.

You will find dog hair on the floor, they will
alert you're at the door. They may request a
little pat, a simple 'no' will settle that.

It gripes me when I hear you say 'just how is
it you live this way? they smell, they shed, they're
in the way..' WHO ASKED YOU? is all I can say..

They love me more than anyone, my voice is like
the rising sun, they merely have to hear me say 'C'mon ,
time to go and play' then tails wag and faces grin,
they bounce and hop and make a din.

They never say 'no time for you', they're always there, to GO and DO.

And if I'm sad? They're by my side and if I'm mad?
they circle wide and if I laugh, they laugh with me
they understand, they always see.

So once again, I say to you come visit me, but know this too..

My dogs live here, they're here to stay.
You don't like pets, be on your way.
They share my home, my food,
my space this is their home,
this is their place..

It's so good to see Mika causing mischief. That's a sign of healing!

Send Rosie our wishes for safe travels and a good start to the school year. It must be hard to leave a home a beloved animals but I'm sure good things await at school as well!
