Memorial Day,Gotcha Days,Memories and News

Happy Memorial Day Everypup!
 On this special day, let's all remember all the servicemen and women who have served our country, protecting and preserving our freedom. Thank you to all of you...those currently serving, veterans, service DOGS, and those who gave their lives for us.
 Memorial Day week is special here.  In 2005, Angel and Lakota came to live here. They were rescued from an abuse situation.  In January of this year, our sweet Angel left us to run North of the Rainbow Bridge. She was almost 15 years old. The first picture is one of her taken in December.

 This is Lakota.  He came to live with us at the same time as Angel.  He didn't like being out in the old kennel, but when mom moved the kennel closer to the house, he decided it was GREAT being in there with his girlfriends! 
 Now for the first part of our news.....I have TWO NEW SISFURS!! They traveled all the way from Fairbanks, Alaska to live here.  They arrived on May 22. This is Sugar and she is going to be our new lead dog.   
....and if you have Sugar, you have to have...SPICE!!  Spice came into the shelter with Sugar (these are the new names mom gave them) and they are best friends. Both of them are very friendly and like all of our pack.  I got some pics from when they were in Alaska and will share those in another post. 
Now I have some wonderful personal news... my darling Pippa and I are ENGAGED!!  We don't have a wedding date set but I will keep you all posted.  I am thrilled that he accepted my proposal because he is the love of my life! 

Last of all, I want to share this sign that mom saw on the way to Boston to pick up Sugar and Spice.  TICKS are everywhere and we need to make sure our humans check us and themselves for these nasty critters.  My Pippa got VERY sick from tick bites last year and we don't want any of our friends to go through that.
Here's hoping everyone has a wonderful holiday and be sure to thank a soldier or a veteran for their service.  

Bows to all service people and dogs,
