2012 will be Arizona’s Centennial anniversary of being a state. Yavapai County has a centenial web site, please check it out.
We had a death in the family. My husband’s uncle Bob passed away this week. My mother-in-law was one of eight siblings, giving Gary a lot of uncles and aunts. Uncle Bob was one of my favorites. I’ll miss him.
When Gary and I got married at the Prescott Court House by a judge, we wanted a really small and simple wedding. Gary’s mom invited all her brothers, sisters, and their spouses. Not so small anymore. Uncle Bob noticed that I did not have any flowers, so he ran out and bought me some. This has been the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of Uncle Bob.

Here’s a photo I took of him in February 2008.
I came across this item today:
An Associated Press-Petside.com poll released Tuesday found that half of all American pet owners consider their pets as much a part of the family as any other person in the household; another 36 percent said their pet is part of the family but not a full member.
Lightweights. A real dog person considers the humans and the dogs to be part of the pack.
I got this message from a cousin of my husband’s – a coworker of his needs to find a home for two Labrador Retrievers that have been together all their lives. Gary and I already have 3 dogs at our house, so we can’t take these two. Hopefully someone reading this will want them, or know of someone else who might.
Please pass this on. Thanks!
Two gorgeous labs – trained – Seeking Home for Family Dogs

“As many of you know, we are moving in just 2 weeks. Unfortunately, I have still not been able to find a good home for Cookie and Coco . We’re not able to take our beloved doggies with us and I’ve been desperately trying to find a home for both of them ‘together’. They were raised together and pine without each other. The Lab Rescue has already said that they would probably separate them, so this is my last resort.
Recently I tried to take Coco out in my car alone and she TOTALLY refused to even get into the car without Cookie…..!!!! She absolutely pulled back on her haunches until Cookie was by her side. Both doggies are in great health, have been spayed and have ID chips implanted under the skin.
Cookie turned 3 December 10th and Coco will be 3 April 1st. Cookie is my mellow-yellow, and just loves her tummy rubbed. Coco is adorably funny and lives for her “ball.” She also loves the water….. Cookie loves lots of attention. Both doggies are loyal and love to walk. They have been raised with my 3 kids running around all over the place, and have survived Sammy’s constant hugging and love of ‘dress-up’, so they are fantastic family dogs. This is by far one of the most difficult decisions I have ever had to make, but under the circumstances I have no choice.
Please, please forward these pics to all your friends to help find a great home for these fabulous doggies. They are just adorable and it’s heartbreaking to let them go. In a perfect world, I hope that we could find someone local so that we can still keep in touch and visit them. I pray that someone somewhere can help us keep Cookie and Coco together, and love them just as much as we do. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
