    Thanks so much Lynn! We had quite a drive to get there just under 300 miles so we have had a full day! Mandie is on the couch sleeping beside me. Poor thing is all tuckered out.

    So glad to hear you have a new “puppy” (they’re all puppies to me, even at 14 years old and grey, lol). Going to be singing her song to her? lol

    Oh, Dawn, what a spectacular birthday surprise, and how wonderful of Steve to do that for you! I’m so happy for you, and for Mandie, who will now have a wonderful Mommy to love her. I’m sure it won’t take long for Ranger to get used to his new little sister! Lovely pick for your new little girl! :D

    Thankyou ladies! Mandie is such a sweetie! So dainty compared to our other sheltie boys. Very much the girl. Of course I had to do a girly pick for her. So nice to have another girl in the house.

    :-D I knew it!!!
    When you said Steve was rushing you out of the house WITH Ranger, I thought, he’s getting her a dog!
    How wonderful for all three of you. I can’t wait to hear all about her!
    Congratulations Dawn and Happy Birthday my friend!!
    Keep us posted on all her antics!

    Thanks Mary! I did post on my wire the story of Mandie if you would like to read it. I am sorry for the typos, she bumped my hand and I ended up sending it before I sould review for typos. I know Lynn will call me on it as she is a stickler for typos. You just have to accept my faults. I wonder if Lynn was a teacher in another life?

    Hi Cindy and Thank-you! Michigan from us in the Chicago burbs is about a 1 hour ride or a bit more to get to the border. Where we had to go, Flint which is north of Detroit was almost 300 miles 600 round trip.

    Dawn, you’ve got me ROTFLMAO with your “typos” comments!!! Oh, wait, do you mean me or another Lynn?!?!?! tee hee…..

    No, I wasn’t a teacher — though I was a secretary and later an administrative assistant (glorified secretary ;) ). Believe it or not, I goof-up, too — which is why I proofread my comments 2-3 times before posting!!! LOL Hugs! :D

    I’ll accept your faults, if you promise to accept mine, Dawn. Deal? OK! :D

    Michigan is about 300 miles from me in SW Ohio, too. Oh, and congrats for being the Featured Picker! Another b’day present!

    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Yes I meant you Lynn! I am so glad you got a good laugh today! I too am usually a stickler for perfection but I sometimes get a bot lax or just so excited to share. I accept your fault Lynn and I love you too! I already know I have my own. Thankfully my family and friends still love me!

    Cindy I would guess you are a good days drive from me! Well maybe not quite. Thanks for your nice comments Lynn and Cindy. You all make me smile!

    Just updating you all Mandy and I went on our first official walk today. She enjoyed it and grabbed the leash and stried to play tug of war and jump and play. Gotta learn walking manners, but we had fun! Ranger played so nice with her in the snow. He would chase her then she chases him! It was so cute. She burrows her nosse in the snow and flips it up, eats and rolls in it! Ranger seems to really enjoy her!
