Wordy Wednesday: Friends


Wayyyyyyyyyyy back in 2005 my peeps took a trip of a lifetime to Alaska, which was a life long dream trip of Mom's. Several years later mom was looking at the Anchorage newspaper,  News Miner, online.  She noticed a Chat room there full of folks from all over who loved Alaska as much as Mom.  She met four amazing ladies there in the Chat room.
Bette, Chelle, Kathy and Kit.
 Mom quickly learned Kit had a blog, called Dog Daze.  Blogs were a mystery to mom.  She started visiting Kit's wonderful blog where she met Kit's gorgeous Labs
Buddy, Sassy and Zack.  From Kit's blog mom met TG and Jack, another handsome Lab and, star of Daily Dose of Jack.  Kit and TG were mom's mentors when she decided it was time for her to start our blog in June 2009....and well the rest is history.  Mom jumped into blogging with both feet and pulled me with her.  We never looked back.  
We want to thank Kit and TG for being so supportive while she learned to swim.  

 To this day mom and these four amazing ladies still Chat every day but they do it via email.
Sweet Zack from Dog Daze has passed.  However Sassy the matriarch of the family and Buddy are now sharing their home with Dakota, a senior Golden Retriever, who came to live with them after her  human died.  The Dog Daze pack all have a spa day.  Below is a photo of Buddy just after
his spa day. It was taken on National Puppy Day which was 3/23/16.  After Kit brushed him, 
there was so much fur left over she made Buddy a puppy out of Buddy's fur.

Bette, Chelle, Kathy and Kit for their friendship over the years
Hugs 
Madi and Mom
