I just want to give her a big smooch! What a joy to know that she is all healed up and back to charming the masses with her buggy rides. She’s a hit wherever she rolls.

Bummer about the roof! We had a “historic” home once (in the US 100 years old is considered ancient) and had to go through similar hoops to renovate it. Grrr.

Well yay on the new car, I’m so glad you were able to get a better replacement! May this be the beginning of more joy and good times from here on out, you two sure deserve LOTS of it after what you’ve been through lately.

Thanks for the pupdate, we sure love seeing your remarkable girl.

Great update about Meg.  Glad you can outsmart her lol (its good for the soul to be able to do it once in awhile lol) .  Glad the car situation worked out well for you 🙂 

Now I hope they fix the ceiling better and so it stays up for a long long time.

Love all the pictures of Meg.  🙂

GOOD NEWS OVERLOAD!!!!   Well, the ceiling thing falls (pun intended) into another category of, at least you both were safe, so that’s  really good!  The fact that it even happened  at all and you have ro wait to get it fixed just sucks!!!

Like everyone here, reading about the MegAStar and her indomitable spirit and unlimited zest fot life just lights up our world!!! And goodness jnows, there could ve mo bettrr partner for her in life than YOU!!!   Your connection to her, your insight into who she iis…and how she needs to live her life on her  own terms in  order to be her!

I love that she got to go visit the street market so she could soak in all the attention  she so richly deserves… and demands😎   Of course, you are always having  to stay on high alert for anything and everything  that can take her full throttle out of her Chariot to chase, catch and whatever may wait arpund rhe next corner!

Clare, we are all sooooo thrilled at how well she is progressing!   We all just love this dog so much…and you…and rhe Pie in the aky!❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

Hugs

Awww, you’re all so lovely! Thank you.  Kerren, your comment about Meg looking so innocent when she’s sleeping really made me chuckle…

Lovely bright frosty weather today…. As you can see, there doesn’t appear to be very much wrong with thE Megsta.

Love to all,

Well, if that was Isa rolling around like that, you could count it being something dead. Nothing less would elicit so much joy. 

I’m so, so glad the Megastar is better. And even happier Pie was on the job and spared you both damage from the ceiling cave in. Scary!

Hugs for you both,

Love, Teri, Angel Isa and the Roxinator
