A Couple of Announcements

Hey everyone!

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. I have a couple of announcements for you.

First - A Polish Problem is having a REALLY awesome polish giveaway in honor of her 36th birthday. Go check it out! Please also check out my right sidebar, I have a couple other contests listed, and since they're listed, they're obviously awesome!

Second - I am having issues with my computer and getting my pictures to open up. Not sure WHY, but I'm trying to figure it out. Once that happens I'm hoping to get a post or two up.

Third - My dog, Coco, is really sick with what the vet believes is a brain tumor. It's extremely hard at the house here right now, and we're having a vet make a house call on Friday to have Coco put to sleep. We feel it will be less traumatic for her if we do this at home rather than load her up into the car and take her to the Vet office (which she has always hated).

That is the other reason for lack of posting. I just haven't felt the urge to gush (or complain!) about something material during a time when I'm sad, and I want to be able to give products the attention they deserve.

Thank you so much for reading the announcements! I hope you're all doing well and are getting your hauling on!

Oh I'm so sorry to hear about your dog :( At least she won't have to have a further distressing trip to the vet.

Brooke I am so sorry to hear about Coco. Unfortunately I know what you are going through and my heart aches for you and the kids. When we lost Bear and Mustang within a 12 month period, we were completely devasted.

It helped talking to people who had been through it. If you need to talk, please call me or email me...I am always here for you.

Hugs, Tracey

Awww poor Coco. We'll be thinking of you guys. Hugs.

Brooke @ Blushing Noir said...

thank you <3

we definately didn't think it was this bad, but this last two weeks have really gone downhill fast. She's developed a rattle in her breathing today. We have meds that we think (hope) are easing her pain. Jeff put a treat by her head this morning and it's still there now =( Usually I wrap the meds in cheese but I don't even know if she'll take it at this point.

I'm so sorry that is going on with Coco. It's so hard to see a pet hurting like that then having to make a decision like putting them down. *bug hug*

Too bad!
I really hope everything is gonna be okay )=

Brooke I'm so sorry to hear about your Coco. It's sometimes not fair that our beloved pets' lives are just on a different time line than ours. I hope that she will be in a better place, and I know you and your family will miss her. Hugggggggssssssssssssssss

I'm way behind and catching up, but I wanted to add my sympathies about Coco. I'm all too familiar with how hard it is, and how painful for you. I'm so very sorry for your loss.
