Sunday Smilebox Memory and Meet Shelby Lynn

of me demonstrating the art of Roaching to the accompaniment
of wind chimes for my class.

Meet Shelby Lynn

There's a new girl at our house.. She's going to stay with us
for awhile. Mommy picked her up for ATDR from Montgomery
County Animal Control and agreed to foster her. Since she picked her up, she got to name her. 

She is not a puppy!! Just a very tiny, 7.2 pound, 3-4 year old.
She is heart worm positive but first will have to be spayed and have a dental before treatment can be started. 

Unless Mommy gets hooked and fails fostering AGAIN
she'll be ready for adoption in a few months.

BORN SEPT. 24, 1913

Dearest  friends,

Today is usually Wordless Wednesday here on our
blog but today is a special day. Our Mommy's Mommy would
be 101 years old today, if she was still with us. Mommy misses
her so much. The Wild and Wooly Ricca Girls could do no wrong in her eyes, even though, we know that Mommy was a very naughty girl. We think she came out pretty good in spit of herself.

We have to share something with you that Aunt Judy sent Mommy yesterday, that said.........Subject: Growing up Italian.

She told Mommy every Italian had to see this. She didn't even know that today was Granny's birthday. Mommy cried and cried as she was watching it because it was so true and brought back many memories. Let us say that it is very long, 12 1/2 minuets, but worth every second to an Italian. We will understand if you choose not to listen to it. So many of the pictures could have been Mommy's relatives. Here is the link.........

The old girl boo who'd all night long.

♥♥♥Mona, Prissy and Angel Weenie

Ps...........We saw this link right before we went to bed.
Love it! Nothing like a rescue story to get your heart to thumping.

Quote of the Day…

Today's memory is of the 2011 Arthritis Walk which was the first
ATDR event Weenie participated in after he was adopted. Mike
 walked Mona and different volunteers pulled the dachsie wagon with Weenie and the others that couldn't walk the route.
