A QUICK NOTE HERE:
Our "little" redhead dog Lucy's two siblings have been returned to Abandoned Pet Rescue due to the adoptive family's difficulties. See last photo at the end of this blog to read more... Please share and thank you for helping. They really are!



HI WU-FRIENDS, THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE YET ANOTHER SEASON!

♥Wishing you a wonderful 2014♥

I put THIS LINK up here for quick clicks to help world be a better place.
... and now back to the topic - here we gather again (my 9th season on Wunderground) to rely on each other for info, advice, support and fun.

First I have to rave about an app I found:
It's called Simple Weather Alert and I love it. It monitors the official NWS data and lets me choose which alerts I receive, when, how, and even the alert ringtone. Works great and doesn't drain phone batteries as much as the other apps I've tried. I also have the Wunderground app, but Simple Weather Alert is very simple and yet so efficient. But that's just my own experience :)

"A man walked along the shore scattered with thousands of starfish, beached and dying after a storm. A young boy was picking them up, one by one, and throwing them back into the ocean. "Why bother?" asked the man. "You're not saving enough to make a difference". The boy picked up another starfish and sent it spinning back into the water. "Made a difference to that one", he replied.

Lucy's siblings up for adoption (LakeWorthFinn)
Two of our "little" Lucy's siblings, Parker and Thor, are up for adoption at Abandoned Pet Rescue. They are energetic, but good natured and know some basic commands. (I can tell you that if they are half as wonderful as Lucy, you're a lucky adopting mom/dad/family with either or both of them!) Godspeed siblings to find a loving home soon!

Hi Wab and Skye (thanks for your "Like":)

Yes, weather has been kind. Incredible crowd, everybody having fun and I bet this year we'll break the record for the amount of visitors... I estimate 200.000+ have come to Lake Worth yesterday and today.
Very busy at the store but cool people and nice sales. Very happy Finn & hubby today :)

Phew, looked like we would get a lot of rain about an hour ago, but just a few drops fell. Street painting gods have been good with us :) Hope the night won't harm the paintings, they are awesome - there's one even in 4D and several three dimensional ones. Very cool.

And crowds keep rolling in... Here's what we have in case someone wants to take a peek.


Glad the weather held and that everyone was shopping and enjoying themselves !

Happy Thanksgiving you, J. and the furry 'kids.'

Glad to hear that the pups are doing well, with their health issues.

Stray cat, Gus, is so appreciative of being taken in almost two years ago. He's spoiled rotten, of course, and so sweet. A nice change from my last two, who were NOT cuddly cats.

I was just haying the ponies by the moon lite. There is suppose to be a meteor shower after midnight but it's moon bright out.

Good to see Lucy getting by without surgery. Best to Sophie..

Thanks {{{Rob}}} How's everything?

Lucy has responded well to conventional treatment, so no surgeries at this point, we'll check her with X-rays in 3 months and go from there.
Sophie will have surgery Tuesday to remove a lump from her shoulder. She's been aging well, now she's about 13 years old.

Sending healing vibes to all tornado victims.

We built a fire in the fire pit and sat with hubby watching flames, holding hands, petting dogs and feeling fortunate. Disasters remind us how fragile life is and how much there is to be grateful for.

Wonderful weather here - 75F, windows open and nice breeze. Beautiful moon and critters singing.

Makes me think of the nutritional thing. Happens in horses too the the high protein puppy & foal food causes too much growth at once. Slick floors can add to it. Here is an example. Really a lower protein diet might do & vet wrap can work wonders.
