Dang that Dog!

My DH calls me around 3ish and tells me our sweet little dog got one of my razors. At first we thought it was no big deal. He calls me back a while later and it appears Jack has eaten the razor -- not just the plastic but the blades. My DH can't find them anywhere. So I tell him to phone the vet and they tell him to bring him in.

I tell one of my co-workers what our little jackster had done and he begins to tell me about a dog he had that had to be put to sleep for something similiar. So now I am anxious! I call my Dh about 10 times over the next 30 minutes waiting on the results of the xrays!

They finally get them in and NO razors! Yippee!! He probably did eat some of the plastic so they put him on a soft food diet for the next few days. I vaccumed the house to be sure that they weren't still on the phone!

He seems to be doing ok!

Another year under our belt

My DH and I celebrated our 3rd year wedding anniversary on Sunday. We have actually been together for 7 years. Hmmm 7 year itch? I don't think so lol I wonder if that basically applies to younger couples? Who knows!! We went out on Friday night and spent the evening away from the kids -- my son and our furbabies. We had a nice time. Got up too early on Saturday though!

Maybe one of these days I can actually get a picture of him and I and post it up. Might keep some of the crazies away lol

UPDATE on Jack!

Time for some new Jack pictures! He has grown quite a bit and I think he may FINALLY be done growing. If he is what he is supposed to be he is very much on the big side of the Toy Fox Terrier. He weighs just about 14lbs. We just took him in to be fixed this week. Hope it will calm him down a little bit anyway lol Not sure if it has yet.

The botom picture is how he looks at you sometimes if you whistle or make a strange noise he isn't used to! lol What a cutie he is!

Mother's Day

Next weekend in Mother's Day. At the church that my mother attends they usually have a mother/daugher banqute of some sort. This year they decided to have a coffee. It was this morning - so I went with my mother and 2 of my nieces. My other niece couldn't attend and my SIL didn't go nor did my sister.

The speaker this year is a woman by the name of Gracia Burnham. Her and her husband were missionaries down in the Phillipines for about 17 years. In May of 2001 - they had a quick 24 hour get away for their anniversary. Never did they imagine what would happen on that trip.

They were kidnapped at gunpoint by an Abu Sayyaf Group, a militant group of Muslims. They spent the next 376 days in captivity and traveled throughout the jungle. Facing many gun battles along the way. The finaly gun battle they faced was the one the ended with Gracia being wounded and her husband Martin being killed.

She came to tell her story about the trials that she went through during this time and the way that God helped her and her husband survive during those times. She is an amazing speaker. I would imagine she has probably told her story literally thousdands of times and she still gets teared up about and it still touches her soul. There wasn't a dry eye in the place.

Her is a link to her site if you want to check it out. She has also written 2 books -- one about her time in captivity and one since.
