Good morning, my friends! Thanks for meeting Jenn and I in our favorite coffee shop again this morning. The owner agreed to supply us with his raspberry scones again, but offered to add bread pudding with caramel sauce for us. I don’t know about you, but bread pudding may be my favorite thing in the world! There is also a selection of hot teas, chai latte, expresso, cappuccino, and just about any kind of coffee you desire. Grab something and join me!
If we were having coffee this morning, I guess I would tell you that this is a good news/bad news day for me. Some of you may recall that my precious pup, Betsy, was ill with a genetic illness the last time we talked. We tried and tried, but Betsy passed away from that illness, breaking our hearts in the process. I don’t want to relive it, so I won’t get into the details but I miss her so much.
Since I’ve always needed a dog in my life and I knew my precious Betsy was going to leave me, I had been researching dog breeds. I happened on a breeder of Havanese and Lowchen dogs. Small dogs with big hearts, playful, affectionate, just what I needed. There had been an accidental breeding between a Havanese male and a Lowchen female and two female puppies had resulted. Turns out, they were beautiful. I bought Hanna (pronounced Hannah) and she has been home with me for two days now. I’ve posted her picture at the bottom of this weekend coffee share. She’s beautiful, four months old, and we’re trying to deal with her severe separation anxiety. If anyone has any tips, I’m surely open for suggestions!
Also, last time we talked, I told you I would be taking a short trip to Tennessee to be with my friend, Marty, as she underwent a surgical procedure. She had surgery and is doing very well. She is feeling much like her old self and the effects of her illness seem to be subsiding. I’m so glad about that.
All of this has put a hold on my writing. I’ve written some for this blog, but my other writing goals have not been met. I have to rectify that this week.
I’d love to hear what’s up in your world! Please stay and enjoy coffee, tea, and these wonderful pastries. Good to see you all!
This is Hanna at four months old!
The loss of a pet is the hardest..my deepest sympathy. I once had a Doberman named Hannah..yours is darling. You are not the only one with writing issues…a few of us have skipped a few days around the place. I am a fan of the raspberry scones..perfect with the cappuccino. Thanks for the visit, Rosemary.
Rosemary, I am so sorry to hear about Betsy. It rips your heart out when they get a disease and you can’t do anything about it. And it rips your heart out when they leave. Hugs to you.
Sorry to hear about Betsy. Congrats (is that appropriate, I never know) on the new pup. I know it (she? – Hannah, right) will never take the place of Betsy but she will find her own place in your heart I’m sure. Have a great week.

First my sincere condolences for the lost of Betsy. She will meet Kato at the Rainbow bridge. Now congratulations on the addition of Hanna. It is always fun to add a new family member and watching them learn about life.

I’m flag you ate able to find a new companion. It’s so difficult when we lose them.
You had picked a good week to come down my way to support your friend. Maybe a little hot but not loaded with humidity for a change. I suppose you get your share of humidity next door too.
