Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

O Bla Di, O Bla Da, Life Goes On

Poor Koda. She and Kelly were playing fetch the tennis ball in the dark the other night. Kelly accidently tossed the ball into a sticker bush, Koda charged right into it and got a pretty bad gash on her front 'wrist'. We doctored it ourselves for a day, but even though the cut was small it was deep. Last night she seemed to be pretty lethagic and I got worried, so we gathered her up and went to the after-hours vet.Two hours  and $150 later; she's gonna be just fine. But she's strictly forbidden to lick her owie...hence the lampshade on her head. She hates it. She can't scratch; can't sniff the ground and can't play ball for ten whole days! Kelly feels just awful about it, but it's just a part of raising kids; even if the kids are dogs. O bla di, o bla da, life goes on...right? So we're trying to keep an upbeat mood around here; and encouraging Koda to keep her chin up---literally. LOL.

And we're showing her our support by becoming cone-heads along with her.

There's just no limit to the silly things we'll do for our Koda!

So this is how life goes on in the Rorvig household.

Oh, poor thing! I wonder if the worst part is the humiliation from the collar?! That's going to be a long ten days for Koda!
