Rest In Peace My Sweet Charlie Girl

We had to say goodbye to our sweet girl Charlie yesterday. The diagnosis was not good - likely a slipped disc in her neck. This required a CAT scan, a spinal tap, a high likelihood of neck surgery, hospital stays and rehabilitation. Because neck surgery in animals is so delicate and dangerous, it would have had to get done at a teaching hospital by a specialist. Even if we could have made the trip to Prince Edward Island to the teaching hospital, the estimated cost was about $10,000. How do they expect people to afford this? πŸ’”

A strong dose of morphine didn't even ease my poor little girl's pain. We made the excruciating choice to put her out of her pain. Three beloved babies in less than 5 months, it's impossible to process.

Would anyone like to host the art date for a few weeks? If so, would you send me an email or contact me through the contact form on my right sidebar? I can send you the HTML code for the link widget.

Thanks friends, thanks to all those who sent prayers, healing energy and love. πŸ’™πŸ’™

Thursday Art Date: February Feelings: 😍 Kindness 😍

Welcome to Thursday's Art Date! 😊😊 I'm sharing my latest #Shorts video, me drawing Marvin the Martian from Looney Tunes. I hope you enjoy it!

Today our theme is Kindness! I decided that Kindness would be my word for 2022, I will be the kindest person I can be (not just in 2022!)! I think that being kind has a wonderfully fulfilling effect on both the person giving and the person receiving.

For this week, I decided to draw Sylvester The Cat showing an act of kindness to Tweety Bird:

On screen these two are rivals, but in person, they adore each other!

Here is my latest video on my Spiritual Rain YouTube channel. It's an empowerment reading I did for myself and for anyone in need - I recently put an end to a toxic friendship and I discuss it in this video. Toxic people can just destroy your health and steal your energy. Sometimes it's hard to let them go.

Well, my Charlie is NOT improving. I am terribly upset about this, I feel so useless, I don't know how to help her. She was doing better, then bang...back to yelping every time she tries to get up or move her head. She couldn't even get up on her own for dinner tonight! 😒The meds finish on Monday then it's back to the vet. I feel like I'm being drained financially. But I will do all I can to help her and to stay as positive as I can!

Not too much on the food front this week, but I did manage to sneak in some pizza! I've been super busy. I attended a free online seminar hosted by Tony Robbins (he's a motivational speaker). It was 6 days, a good 4 hours each day; and it was fabulous. I learned so much and I'm applying all of the knowledge I learned! Are you a follower of Tony Robbins? I hope you're all doing well my friends!! Be kind to each other!!

Just a note: my online presence will be greatly diminished for the next little while. I'm putting all of my energy into my studies! It's very exciting. Wish me luck! 

Today's featured blogger is Diana from Nana Diana Takes A Break blog! Diana is such a fun lady with a great sense of humour. She has a new puppy and she often posts his hijinks on Instagram! Please visit her blog and her Instagram page!
