Happy Halloween!

Ah, Halloween in an elementary school. Dixie had to wear a costume! She is a dinosaur with a caveman riding on her back. She actually doesn't mind it much at all.

Happy Halloween, everyone!

Sad Dixie...

Dixie is a sad dog.

Her favorite toy, a plush Christmas ornament, has stopped working.

It was a Christmas gift last year, and she immediately took a liking to it. Actually, she took a "loving" to it. The ornament is a little white dog with a Santa hat. When the shoulders were squeezed, the cheeks lit up red and it said, "Merry Christmas, Ruff-Ruff!" Dixie would gently bite it and it would say that line. She loved hearing it. It was her go-to toy.

Unfortunately, the dog won't talk anymore. It's cheeks still light up, but the sound is gone. Dixie keeps bringing it to me as if saying, "please fix this." She's moping around.

I've been looking at stores all over trying to find a replacement, but haven't been successful. Fortunately there are holiday type items showing up in stores now, so I'll be keeping an eye out for a replacement.

Poor Dixie. It sucks when your toys break.

Chicago Marathon

My sister is running in the Chicago Marathon tomorrow.

She is running to cure diabetes.

She told me that "I am going to pull through the hard parts because you pull through the hard parts."

Go get 'em B!

I love you and am proud to have you on my side.
