Bitsy Button

I am overwhelmed by your good wishes and kind thoughts for Bitsy. I’ve read every comment over and over and they all mean so much to me! Thank you my dear readers, for being there for me, and for caring about Bitsy.

She’s doing pretty well, but we did have to make a quick trip back to the vet this week. She has a drain in her incision and it seems it was pulling a few stitches out. I bundled her up, put her in the car and off I went with a trembling dog in the front seat. Seems she knows now that every car ride is to the vet. (Something I’ll have to remedy when she recovers.) She’s back home with some staples added, but the good news is that tomorrow she goes back to the vet to get the drain out. I hope she’ll feel better after that and she can get onto the healing process. I promise to keep you posted on how she’s doing.

This is the look Bitsy reserves for me! I feel so honored to have her!

Chelsea has been really good with Bitsy. She walks carefully around her, and never gets too close to her incision. She knows something happened and seems concerned. But as good as she’s been, today she just had to bring a mouse for me to throw for her! Please mom, please!

And today I got the cutest pictures from my friend Anne. It’s a cat show with Jack and Arnie! Jack and Arnie are rescue kitties from the Humane Society. They are the cutest cats you have ever seen! Anne put in this “cat” video for them to watch, and for almost an hour they were glued to the TV! It’s a video with fish, birds and other cats.

First came the fish…

Then came Jack’s paw… he’s trying to get a bird.
When the video changed and the bird went off the screen guess what he did?

He went around to the back of the TV to see if he could find it!


They watched for so long that Anne says she is going to limit their TV hours.

Anne’s a good mom!

Tonight I’m sitting in my old red chair, binding a quilt and watching TV with Bitsy at my side. She doesn’t seem to care about what’s on TV! (:

  • Anonymous - Anne, I don’t know you except through your blog and your lovely patterns and fabrics, but I just wanted to say that I consider you a very dear lady, and a friend! Your love of little Bitsy just warms my heart…she was so lucky to find you, and vice versa. Hugs and prayers to you for all you do! Andrea in FloridaReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - I think Bitsy’s sweet eyes in that photo just tug at your heartstrings like my Lydia does. Such devotion and loyalty. Most people mistake our golden for a dog..How silly. Miss Liddie had quite a large tumor on her back last year which had to be removed. I thought her beautiful coat would never return. I purchased a doggie tshirt for her to wear. Hugs to you and Bitsy! I think it was fate that brought her to you.

  • Anonymous - I wish Bitsy all the best. What a sweet heart. Little old dogs are so dear to my heart, especially now. I adopted a 7 year old Maltese and she changed my world. Sadly she passed away last month after 5 wonderful years. I miss my little treasure, but wouldn’t have traded her for the world.
    My prayers go out to Bitsy and wish her a speedy recovery.ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - All your pictures are priceless of the animals. I just wanted to reach out and pet every one of them !! I have always said there is a special place in heaven for people who give such devotion to their pets! Those cats just crack me up.

  • Anonymous - Anne, I fell in love with your patterns because they had bunnies in them. I have three bunnies that live with me. But, I love to hear about your dogs. And, from the first time you told the readers in your blog about Bitsy I fell in love with her. I hope she recovers soon and Chelsea is a doll.
