The two-week period started out a bit rough, when we found out over the weekend of August 20th that my oldest dog, Jesse, who has been struggling with seizures and thyroid issues for years, was really at the end of her ability to take the medicines that have been helping keep her stable. My poor Jesse was in liver failure, so we had to send her to play ball with the Big Man in the Sky on Monday the 22nd. I will miss her very much, as she was the most tolerant, sweet doggie in the world. Mommy and Daddy say she'll watch me and my Baby Sister grow up from Heaven.

Speaking of Baby Sister, the Circle of Life completed itself on Monday, August 29th at 2:17 p.m. (about 1 week to the day AND the hour after we had to let Jesse go), when my Baby Sister Grace was born! I AM A BIG SISTER!!!!
