    Wine to celebrate, no other way!!

    Conner reminds me of my Eden, always busy...I so understand.

    How come that dogs always find a way to sneak onto the most precious blankets in the house?
    Ours, as small as he is - miniature long-haired dachshund - has learned to pull things off a chair or a bed. Upon being discovered, his body languages speaks of knowing that he's not supposed to, but "oh, it is so soft and cozy!".
