Heartbreak. Rogue lost all ten of the beautiful babies she was carrying. The only consolation is that Rogue herself is going to be ok. It was touch-and-go for her on Friday. Penni also lost her singleton Alice great-grandchild. Whelping and raising puppies is so difficult and can be emotionally overwhelming.

Our sweet grandma Hannah also came through another medical procedure this week. Many of you know that she was struck by a vehicle in September of 2012. Through the support and donations of many friends, she was able to be patched back together. She has developed a new complication: megacolon. Mandy will have a lot on her hands caring for Hannah in the future, but hopefully the condition will be controlled with diet and drugs.
You can plainly see the plates and pins from her earlier injury.
I sure hope that the year gets better from here . . .
