So Much To Do and So Little Time...

011 049
I have gladly volunteered atmy local SPCA.   I am going to take over the responsibility of listing the animals up for adoption on the Petfinder web site.  I have never done this before so I have a lot to learn, but hopefully by the end of the weekend I will have some idea what I am doing!

My local SPCA hasn't had anyone to update their cats and dogs who are up for adoption, like the beauties pictured above, for a while.  I guess adoptions are a lot more frequent when Petfinder is updated often.

I have so much I want to post about Bermuda and Vermont, but the main reason I started this site was to help animals.  Over the past two years it has evolved into a lot more which is fine.  However, I truly want to make a difference in animal's lives - even if it's just one at a time.

Chanel is doing well.  We are very closely monitoring her and her weight.  She seems to be gaining a few ounces as time goes on and enjoying all the extra attention :)  Thank you SO much to all of you who expressed concern for her!!!

Thanks for stopping by and I will be back to blogging about everything and anything soon.  Have a wonderful weekend my friends!005

Praying For Chanel


Pictured above is Coco's twin sister Chanel and I standing in front of Coco's garden a few months ago.  I am praying for Chanel because she has had some unexplained weight loss.  She has always weighed around 8 pounds 12 ounces.  We weigh our cats frequently after Coco became ill with GI Lymphoma about 2 years ago.  We noticed Chanel had lost a little bit of weight at the beginning of the summer and was down to 8 pounds.  We were not too alarmed until we saw she was down to 7 pounds 4 ounces a couple weeks ago.  That's a pound and a half or about 15% of her weight.

Chanel just turned six years old in May.  We have had every test run including thyroid, diabetes, and an ultrasound scan of her entire system.  We were going to take her for an endoscopy because we are so fearful of Lymphoma after what happened to her sister even though supposedly it's not genetic.  We decided to hold off on the endoscopy since it is a slightly invasive procedure and she has gained a few ounces with all the special treats she is getting.  We are monitoring her very closely and defintely praying.  I have contacted the foster family we adopted Coco and Chanel from to see if there were any other problems reported in the litter of eight they came from.  The foster family had not heard of any thank goodness.

I have more to share about Vermont and Bermuda, but I'm sure you can understand how this is foremost on my mind right now.

Thanks for stopping by and any prayers for our baby Chanel will be so gladly appreciated!

Horseshoe Beach, Bermuda: One of the Top 10 In the World

The above photo is a "blue lagoon" type of area that is part of Horseshoe Beach in Bermuda.  My photos don't do it justice.  the sand is a peachy pink color and the water is bright aqua blue.  It is also the perfect temperature!

I will post a few more photos, but before I do I want to thank all my readers for their visits and wonderful comments during my absence.  I just arrived home and am too exhausted to even unpack.  I don't understand why most vacations aren't more restful.  Please bear with me as I recover :)

As always, I appreciate your visit and hope everyone is dong great!


I LOVE Bermuda!!!


I knew Bermuda would be nice, but I think it is the most amazingly beautiful place I've ever visited!  The people are so friendly as well. Needless to say I am really enjoying this vacation.  I thought this would be my one and only trip here, but I think I've found paradise.

Here are a few photos that I'm afraid do not do justice to this lovely island.  I will be posting a lot more later this week.


I promise more information and photos soon.  As always I appreciate your visit and hope all of you are well :)
