A little bit of Easter, an update on Charli, and a thank you!......
A little bit of Easter, an update on Charli, and a thank you!
I hope all of you had a truly lovely Easter. I know we did at our house. I was thinking of all of you ♥ I was going to start making my rounds visiting first but I know you are concerned about our dear little pooch.
I wanted to share a picture of our butter lamb. Isn't it just the sweetest thing! It's one of our most cherished family Easter traditions. I've written about it several times here in the achives of my blog.
I thought you might like to see a picture of my beautiful tulip arrangement. I think it's so pretty. Isn't the bunny and that little egg precious?
I would like to take this this opportunity to thank all of our children and grandchildren for making our Easter celebration so special. Your just the best! Thank you so much ♥
Every year my mother-in-law would make these darling little birds nest cupcakes for all of
her grandchildren at Easter. The only thing different are the bunnies and chicks I placed on top. Our children always looked so forward to these cupcakes. On the way to grandma's house they would talk about them wondering if she had made them again that particular year. Grandma-birds nest cupcakes-love! Wonderful and cherished family traditions from the heart ♥
Here is a picture of our dear little Charli when she was so sick last week. We removed her collar so she would be more comfortable. When Charli is ready to go to bed every night we always remove her collar. My dad used to say, "What if you were a dog? Would you want to have that collar hanging around your neck all the time?" Charli is still not completely recovered yet but she is doing much better! She vomited again last night which is some what concerning. She remains on the antibiotics and chicken with rice diet. The good news is that her labs came back and she presents as a very healthy pooch. She has no signs of Pancreatitis which the vet originally thought she might have had. She does have a bacterial infection. If she continues vomiting she may need x-rays and barium studies. My hubby things she may just have gotten excited due to Easter and all of the activity here. The vet said she was not contagious so all our grand dogs were able to attend our Easter celebration too.
This is the picture of Charli I took today. She is sporting the pretty new scarf her doctor gave her because she was such a good girl when she had to have her blood drawn. The vet also took her picture for the digital photo frames they keep in all of their examination rooms. Charli even has her own link to her vet now. When I go there I am able to see her personal file and pictures. The staff also sent her a welcome to the office card that every one who works there signed. To tell you the truth I have never been to a veterinarian office quite like this one. It was a totally new experience for me. I will have to write a post about it some day and ask if them if I can take a few pictures for my blog. I think you will be amazed. Everyone at the office fell completely in love with Charli. They were carrying her all around and asking her for hugs and kisses. Even though Charli loved all of the attention BIG TIME I hope we don't have to go back any time soon.
Well, I'm off to take down tables and chairs. I have to put away my Easter decorations and tidy up the house.
Thank you so much for all of your kindness, get well wishes, and prayers for Charli ♥ It really meant a lot to us.
With warmest regards, Carol
