Thank DOG 2007 is Behind Us!

Okay, first for an update, and much needed thank you's.
Daddy bid his final farewell to his mom, and is back home now, though we hated having to say goodbye, we know that she's finally at peace in the arms of the lord, and is watching over us. We can think of no better soul to be our guardian angel, she was truly an inspiration and provided mom with much insight into being a better mom and grandmother, her wisdom & grace provided a roll model that will never be forgotten. She was truly a "Steel Magnolia".

Now for the BoogieBoy update. First, huge thanks to all those out there sending Sibe Vibes our way, your prayers and kind thoughts were a huge help to mama, and the power of the Sibe Vibes should never be questioned, our situation is living proof that they work! Our skin-sister Sam & her 3 kids stayed here with mama while daddy was taking care of business in AL, she is Boogies natural mother. She's stayed out of the picture so far because as she said "I know that he spends almost every weeekend with you, and this is the best place for him". However, due to the recent events and worries, she has decided to get back involved, and is in the process of getting the case back into court in front of a judge to try to have visitation and custody modified so she'll have some say so into his care and decisions regarding his education & welfare. Mom has offered to help in any way she can in the meantime but she'll be working behind the scenes so as not to put our contact with him in further jeopardy.

All of your prayers & Vibes have made a world of difference! While Sam was here, she got a call from the dad on Christms night & he wanted to know if she was staying wih us. He told her that she could come pick up the Boogie as long as she stayed here with him. The day after Christmas mama got a text message from the dad asking if she wanted to keep him for a few extra days, of course mama jumped on the chance. Our Boogie was here through Sunday, and we all had a wonderful time with him. He loves the new tile and rearranged furniture in his room, somehow he gained extra space, and his room looks much bigger, not to mention cleaner! Mom had a long talk with the dad, and he complained about feeling "betrayed", and "pressured into putting him into a different school", so decided to remind us who is boss. Our mama isn't very good at butt-kissing, but we're very proud of her, she's putting forth a really good effort, and in the meantime supporting Sam in every way possible in her endeavors to get the court to pay attention when nobody else has seemed to care or see anything wrong with his situation. In the meantime she's on her best behavior with the dad, and doing everything possible to insure that we stay a part of his life so we can continue to monitor and be informed of what is going on with him.


Next item we need to tell y'all about is a non-profit organization that mom has volunteered to help out on. She's going to be helping to ghost write a blog for them, and it will be easily accessible from our page. Please look on the right sidebar for a link to the CareAgain wolves, under the "Organizations we Support" list, go check out their website and while you're there make a donation if you can. Or you can click on the badge above to take you directly to the donation site. The angel-lady that is in charge of caring for them, feeding & providing them with a natural setting where they can be safe & protected, and battling against those who "dont want them in my neighborhood", has been really struggling to get a fence built around their new home , 10,000 acres of beautiful natural land backing up to a wildlife preserve. This wonderful lady has struggled endlessly to provide "her" pack with as close to a natural setting as possible so they can just be wolves. If anyone out there is in Colorado and has time to volunteer to help on the fence, we know it would be more appreciated than you can imagine, poor Jacqueline is working herself ragged 16-18 hours per day just trying to keep up with the wolves needs & single-handedly get the fence built. If you can donate a few dollars to the cause, they have 501c3 status, and all donations are tax-deductible. We're also welcoming any suggestions if anyone has any thoughts on other organizations or groups that might be willing to lend a helping hand. Please feel free to include a link on your pages, or to copy the badge above to send folks to the donation site. Mama says it's very important for us to care for and support our ancestors, they've helped to make us who we are, so please help spread the word!

Finally, our tile guy is ready to start on our office this week, so we're going to be losing our computer access for a few days, probably starting Thursday or so. but we promise as soon as we're up and running again, we'll get back into the swing, we've got lots of new pics to share with everypup. For now though we've got to go, mom's gotta get some sleep, so she can start moving furniture and finish a project that is going on in our sunroom right now. We can't wait to show you the pics of everything that has been going on 'round here. and our visits from A. Drill, A. Saw, and A. Sander, just to mention a few.

Hope everypup, kitty & their humans had a wonderful Christmas, and a very Happy New Year.
Happy 2008 kisses & hugs,
The River Hill Pack


PeeEss,

Sorry to hear about your dad's mom, but at least now you have your very own angel. Maybe she even helped with the BoogieBoy situation.

PEACE in you in the New Year, RHP!
Will check out the wolf site - if we lived in colorado, we'd be there helping on the fence in a heartbeat- our dad is a very clever fence-builder! (Maybe owning siberians is good for improving fence-building skills?)

Woooos,
Star

PS: A-roo-roos to yous, Mikki...
