A Message From "Miss Thang"

  Hi, everyone...or "Dear Hearts" as my mommie calls ya'll.  Miss Thang here...taking over the blog today because my mommie, Miss Sally, is sooooooo busy she has no time for blogging.  We two have been through lots of changes of late and it's a little confusing for me, but as long as we're together, I know we're OK.  First, there was lots of packing and boxing up at my house in San Antonio, then one last run around my little backyard and into the car.  I love car trips...well actually I love to sleep during car trips, and I've made the trip to Lafayette, Louisiana lots of times, but little did I know we were MOVING to Louisiana this time and we were going to live on the coast for the summer!

So, here I am at Cypremort Point.  Queen of the coast!!!  I have a perfect view of the water and I get to bark at all the fishing boats as they head out to the Gulf.  I know they can hear me because they start going really fast when they get to my pier.  Oh, and I love my pier.  Me and Mommie walk down to the end of our pier every night to watch the sunset.  The Gulf breezes ruffle my fur and I can smell the salty air.

We've had lots of adventures out here...yesterday a sudden hail storm with golf ball size hail broke all of the windows overlooking the deck.  One hour later the sun was shining and it was beautiful here...I was, however, stuck in the back bedroom while Mommie cleaned up all the broken glass.

I'm not sure what the weekend holds.  Maybe I can go fishing with Mommie and her bestest friend, besides me, Miss Tracy.  Do they make life jackets in my pink?  Maybe, we'll check out Festival International in Lafayette...I love Zydeco music!  I never know what to expect these days.  I just go with the flow.

Doggie Kisses,

The Good Life

I cannot believe what a frenzied mental state I was in just over 30 days ago, compared to the relaxed state of mind I'm livin' in now!  I was never one to drop out of the "race" before, but this rat has jumped ship and is loving it.  It may be just for the Summer, but I'll take it.  I took a good, long look at my own face in the mirror this morning and, yep, there she was, the girl I used to be...or at least a glimmer of that girl.  I can see that tired, stressed expression fading away and my old self emerging.  Thanks to the Gods of Circumstance and Coincidence for giving me a way to make a change and make it fast.  Each evening when I stroll out to the end of the pier with Miss Thang to watch yet another spectacular sunset over the water, I can't help but hear my dad's voice in my head saying, "I wonder what the poor folks are doing tonight?"
