Pitter patter of puppy feet!

Well they are finally here!
Our Jack Russell Terrier, Chloe, had her puppies on May 23rd between 4 and 6:00 in the morning!
She had 7 puppies all together. What a big litter! Usually for this breed, they only have 3 or 4. She did so well since this was her first litter! All of them are alive, and there are not any runts. All about the same size and growing fast!
When they are around 6 to 8 weeks old we will be looking for homes for them. There are 5 girls and 2 boys. Pure bred and we are working on getting them papered.
So fun!


Mardi Gras

for mardi gras, we went to area... of course... it was really fun. a bunch of people were there that don't come all the time anymore, and it was nice to see them. they were passing out beads, and there were a bunch of fun masks. me and a bunch of the girls had a blast on the dance floor and trying to get as many beads as we could. (no we didn't get them the "traditional" way) it is fun to have friends and great place to go on holidays like this!

Our visit to the Draper Temple

The other night, my dad invited us to come along with him to tour the new Draper Temple. It was so fun to be able to spend time with some of my family, and go through the temple before it was deticated. Of course we couldn't take any pictures of the inside, but I got some good shots of us before we went in! It was such a fun experience to see it all, since the last tour I went on was back when the Bountiful Temple was built. all of us waiting to get on the bus My sister Becky and her friend on the bus.

My dad on the bus. My Step Mom Gwen and me on the bus. While we were walking through the tent to get inside the temple, I saw this post with a cone on top of it. Had to get a picture of it!!


My Desk

So, it is Sunday, and I am sitting here at work....
Got a little figity, so I decided to take a picture of my desk to share with everyone! These are my decorations of my manatees, and my good luck cats that my Aunt Carler has given me over the years.


Back to their old selves again!

Just wanted to report on the status of Sherpa and Onyx. They are doing great! Pretty much back to normal. Sherpa got her staples out yesterday, and they both got their drains out last week.
They are doing very good, and are playing much softer with each other now.
Makes me so happy that they are ok!


Poor puppies

So! The other night, Richard and I went out to dinner, and when we came back, the house looked like a crime scene! Our 2 Pit Bulls, Sherpa and Onyx had gotten into quite the argument. This had not ever happened before, and we still have no idea what may have set them off. When we first went into the house, Chloe, our Jack Russell Terrier, was no where to be found. I was so worried that she might be dead out in the back yard! Finally, Richard found her. She had somehow gotten into the bedroom, and would not come out. She was so scared! It was kinda freaky, but also kinda funny that when Richard brought her out, she was no longer white... she was PINK! She had dried blood all over her, but she didn't have a scratch luckily. Sherpa and Onyx, on the other hand, were pretty beat up. Sherpa was losing alot of blood, and we couldn't really see much on Onyx, since she is so dark, and her fur is a little thicker. We rushed them to the ER Vet and got them taken care of. We got there around 11 pm, and didn't get out of there until around 3:30 or 4 am. The Vet, and the techs absolutely fell in love with them! They were very happy to see Pit Bulls that were so well behaved and sweet, even though they were so traumatized. Almost $500, 22 staples and 2 drains later, they are going to be ok! They are already starting to turn back into their old selves. Playing with each other again, and not so cautious around us, or other dogs. I am so happy that they are ok! We were so afraid that we were going to have to put them down that night, and that we were going to lose 2 of our babies. the top of Sherpa's head side of her face her legs. she was frankenpup onyx's neck her face
