Well I packed up and moved sites today to the other side of the park where I found a site that I could back in and have privacy and some grass on the door side to make both my life and Taz's a little easier.

Going kayaking tomorrow and hope to take some pictures - the last 5 days have really been taken up with caring for the girls - they are a handful but hopefully now that I am in a little more functional site I can perhaps get into some sort of routine until the 26th. Hopefully I can get in some nice shots.

Thanks Dannie - I know they will - just seems like it will be a long haul for the poor ole gal. I hope to get out shopping for a kind of stroller for her - yeh I know I will probably get some really strange looks but heck I can not leave her behind every time I take Haily for a walk...ha where one goes they both go.

hey sweetsioux! sweet sue (We have two Sues...not that YOU aren't sweet you lil devil Suz from Lake George!) That's a lot of canine there. Your great danes look gorgeous and BIG. Thanks for posting the pictures.

Sharon, glad you are in a good site for Taz and that you got her fixed up and on the road to recovery. You know we feel for you, not unlike what happened to our Koa last year. But I know you will be the best nurse. You take wonderful care of your girls. They are fortunate to have a mommy like you.

Suz, I am thinking about you taking off for Gulf Shores and wishing you and Ike a fun time and lots of rest and relaxation.

Hey Annie!

Louis I am sorry you aren't getting to stay in Michigan and on to more Northern climes. Your home project and decorating turned out beautifully. I need your help big time over here. I am stuck in tacky and it shows motif. Anyway nice job, it looks very inviting and comfy. I take it you are a fast worker!!!

Try a wagon

Sharon.... Hope that you are well and glad to hear that Taz is improving... Try for a wagon... a stroller might be a problem with the weight of Taz... wagon will be great.. should be an easy find.

Taz's now on The WAGON!!!



Never thought of a wagon - good call Ladies...

So off I went today to find a wagon..

Now being that Taz is an elder - she really needs a classy ride don't you think????

So this is what we came up with - A little on the expensive side - but my baby is well worth it!!!

It had to be strong enough and big enough and have the high sides or it would be no good. The nice wheels also made it an easy choice for me pulling around 75 pounds - now if I could rig Haily up to pull her then I will be all set.

So put it together and then gave her a little spin just to see if she would stay in it - she did gret. I need to rig up some restraint system and we should be good to be the talk of the campground
She sits in it just fine...

And on the straight runs she can stand tee hee. But I told her no standing when the bus is moving or I will kick you off and you will have to walk.

I started her little walks today with slight assistance and she is now starting to use her leg a bit more - but not a whole lot - she has a long way to go poor thing - but what a trooper she is.

Haily has been really patient too in that she is in bad need of a good run - so hopefully I can take them on long walks now around this park which has all paved paths which is great.

This is the site I have been staying at since Monday and here till next Thurs - I will either move to Monks Corner next or pick a new site here at the camp - it all depends on how I can manage with Taz's therapy up at the new place.

Today was the first day that she actually has laid on her bad leg side - so with each day now she is improving post-operatively at least. She is set to have her stitches removed On Monday if they think they are ready.

A big Thanks to everyone for sending your well wishes to Taz I have passed on everyone of them with a big hug and a kiss...

Great Pics

Sharon... Glad you liked the idea... Taz looks pretty classy in her new chassey... ... We are now at Hillsboro Airstream ... called North Texas Airstream community or NTAC for short... very classy place and very friendly people. We will be here for a couple of days and then home to Zavalla Tx. Mark, Kim and Liam left for home yesterday. Enjoyed seeing them. Stay well.... give Taz a big hug from Niki and Toby

I know it has been awhile since I got on and said anything. So here it goes.

First off, I have been really busy, between school, and work, I hardly get a day off, and when I do, Im watching Lila. Keep busy is good for me I know, but I feel like when I go on vacation, im going to have a hard time coming back to all the work.

School is going well. Just got my results to my Stats exam and I got a 96 percent! And in my writing class I get a A- on both of my papers.So it seems to be going well. I go four days a week, and work one of my jobs on at least two of thoes days. Makes for a long day.

Work is going well, only for the fact that I still have a job!

Lila is doing great, she is getting so big, she is finally in a newborn size, and weighs over 7 lbs. In fact, she is sleeping on the couch right now, she is spending the night! I watch Lila about 2-3 days out of the week.

Wow, putting all of these things together really tells me that I dont have any time for anything. Guess Im busier than I thought. I cant wait for winter to be over, and the camping to start. I get out of school May 4th and am off all summer, so I have plenty of time to get my camping in this year!

So I thought I would give everyone an update on whats going on in my boring life.

Sharon, I hope Taz gets better soon! And I hope your having fun, keep posting pictures.

Steph, when I get home, I will make a date for us to have lunch, PROMISE!

Carol, I havent talked to you in awhile, hope things are going with Brad, and when I see him next week ill give him a hug for you! Give Orie a kiss for me!

Off to New Mexico I go on Monday morning, so I wont be posting for awhile, I hope all you ladies stay warm and think spring!

Bon voyage Laura!!! Have a great time in New Mexico. Yes track him down for me and give him a big bear hug, I'll bet he blushes. BTW, we did get the work camper positions at Wagon Trail Resort in Ellison Bay Door County Wisconsin for this summer!!

What's on your to do list? Going to do some geocaching?

Glad Taz is recuperating...

Hey Sharon, great photos and stories! Thanks for sharing your trip with us! Looking forward to seeing you do that backwards kayak maneuver we practiced in Michigan...
