We meet some wonderful people in the funniest ways. I had a lady "Leslie" find my selling blog in a google search and she ordered a special size Dog Bed / Mat for her youngest Boy Dog named Beacon....Isn't he just the sweetest dog ever. Leslie has been a trainer and has been showing Dogs for many years and was an excellent source of information and very patient with answering all my Dog questions (you all know how much I love my Dogs) She also fosters Golden Retrievers. and she raises her dogs as naturally and chemically free as possible. Her new Boy still sleeps in his crate and I hope he will love the special bed I made for him. Dezi sleeps with her (as do my dogs) and I just sleep better when my dogs are right there by my side :). Some of the best information she gave me was about a tag that hangs on your dogs collar (or other pets or animals) and it repels fleas and ticks for 4 months. I am for sure going to be buying 4 of them since we keep finding ticks mostly on Bianca and Annie. I just can't believe what a friend she already is and I sure wish she lived closer...I love people that are posessed with loving their fur babies like I do This is a few pictures of Leslie and Dezi in a dog show / competition...I wish my dogs would just stand next to me like Dezi stands by her. She is doing a little research for me on finding a better vet near me since the one we have been going to here is not a animal lover like I expect a vet to be...Just a job for them and I can't deal with that. Thank you Leslie for coming into my life and helping me with better care for my furbabies :)

Nancy, isn't it great when we meet people like this? I know the dog trainer that I took Buster to was so kind and helpful and understanding with my problems with him. I've been in contact with her a few times since then, and it's like reconnecting with an old friend. Even though Buster and I didn't do that well in the classes, it was the "make or break" thing that made me keep him.

I'm sure you don't have to worry about Beacon liking his blankie. Buster still pull his off his chair and takes it with him. He worries about it when it gets washed, but loves it when it's clean and smells nice!

Nancy, you are such a soft-hearted musch of a person and your dogs know it. That's why they get away with everything. You might yell, but they know deep down inside that you know they rule the house!!!!!

Love your post today!!!

Congrats on finding a new friend.
We have 3 goldens in the house. Love them to death, but I hate all the hair sometimes. Especially in the bed. Enjoy!
Prim Blessings!

What a blessing to meet such a nice person and at just the right time...
well trained dogs are amazing...our grand dog has had some training, he's pretty good most of the time..sits, stays, knows quite a few words...comes when called but doesn't walk well on the leash..something we need to work on..
