GIVING THANKS, a special adoption story,
DREAM  in the Thanksgiving Day parade
and a Thanksgiving Smilebox Memory.

Dearest friends,

There is much to be thankful for this year,

Our Mommy is still here, still fighting her cancer and anemia,
but not giving up. She goes back to the oncologist on Dec 17th
to see if the news is good. Please keep praying all goes well.

I, Sammie Jean, joined the family in April and am thriving
and I even have a special doggie friend named Higgins. I call him Higgie. You might know him, he's a blogger too.

I, Prissy, love life and being one of Mommy's girls. My heart was recently broken, when Susie and Sidebite stopped
blogging which meant my sweet love Mickey isn't around
anymore but maybe there is somebody else out there that
needs a girlfriend. I'm eleven years old and a redhead, BTW.

I, Mona, am here for now but I may be leaving soon to
be with my beloved Weenie at the bridge. My Cushings is in 
better control than Dr B thought it would be but my CHF has
gotten worse. We are dealing with it as best we can and most
of the time I feel good but I'm tired a lot. I enjoy sitting with Mommy and being loved on. Watching Sammie Jean and
Prissy playing is a hoot and I'm so glad Sammie Jean is
here so Prissy will have company when I'm gone. I'm also
thankful that Max still loves me.

We are thankful for the many friends we have in Blogville who are here to support us at all times and of course for all our
friends in Houston, like Pappy and Bentley, who are here
for the holiday with us. They came Sunday and are staying
with us until this coming Sunday.

With all our love......Mommy girls, aka Mona, Prissy and
Sammie Jean

The Mommy here.....

The kids have all shared what they are thankful for.
Most of you know how I feel about dogs, it doesn't matter
if it's a dachshund or not.  In the last 3 months there was one little dog that touched my heart and I am thankful I was able
be a part of his life.  On Sept 19, Mona went for her 6 month cancer checkup, she has been cancer free for years now but still gets checked every 6 months. I met this little fella for the first
time that Saturday and fell in love like I haven't been since I found my precious little Weenie. You see he is going blind just like Weenie did.

Frisky’s Bio


            Hi my name is Frisky I am 13 yrs old.  My daddy passed away on 9/5/15 and I have been waiting for my sister to come pick me up but the staff at Aldine Animal Hospital has had no luck getting my sister to return any calls to come bring me home.  I am on Phenobarbital to prevent me from having seizures.  I love going for walks and being outside in general.  I haven’t been around many kids but I did get a chance to meet 2 little boys for just a short time and loved the attention.

He was not Frisky at all but very depressed. Not only had his Daddy died but his sister said to just go ahead and put him to sleep because she didn't want him BUT Dr B wouldn't allow that. So Frisky came home that morning for a visit. I took him back right before they closed for the day. The below picture was taken after he got back. The was exhausted, worn out from playing in the sun all morning but very happy. So began his once a week Saturday visits.

As long as it took Aldine Animal was willing to pull out all the stops to get him adopted. Schnauzer Rescue of Texas agreed to post about him on their website. In October they heard from a
former Texan that was moving back here from Wisconsin who has a 15 year old blind schnauzer. So on Monday he went to his
forever home and the best part is his new Mommy is keeping
Aldine Animal as his vet and wants to stay in touch with me so I can still visit with him. I thank the good Lord for letting me
have a small part in his life.

Today was a special Thanksgiving for DREAM. They
participated in the Houston THANKSGIVING DAY
parade. Here are a few pictures Meredith shared with us.
