GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON
~November 23, 2019
The Holiday season is in full swing–decorations and preparations being made to celebrate Thanksgiving. We checked out at the grocery twice this month and netted two free turkeys. We shared one with our son, who is hosting Thanksgiving this year.
Bettee’s ten pups are growing. Their eyes are open–every day they get more active. We have been talking about the smooth coats–they arrived on Thursday. Christina was here in Cliff’s absence–we both lost sleep, but the whelp was managed–without Cliff’s expert help.
Cliff is back, and as you can see, he is once again involved. We are feeding the smallest pup in Bettee’s litter. I think this is too cute not to share.
We hope you agree that this little baby is beyond precious. Christina has worked hard while Cliff was away to make sure he got extra milk. Hurrah!
This Week On the Blog…
It has been another tough week with Cliff desperately ill. As most of you probably know, he ended up hospitalized. To say we were concerned would have been a vast understatement, but he has rebounded quickly. We are ever so thankful. And speaking of that gratefulness–we appreciate all of you who have sent us material for the blog.
As always, thanks to our faithful OwyheeStar contributors–they make this all possible. (Haha) We sincerely hope our readers enjoyed these updates as much as we did, too. If you have a story that you will let me share–I need at least three sentences and a decent photo. I prefer to receive it via email. (FYI–we only use stories that feature the OwyheeStar Weimaraner).

On a very personal note
Most of you have probably seen this photo that we got the nurse to snap on Wednesday. Cliff smiling because he is feeling a lot better–wanting to get released. Later he was glad they kept him one more night–he came home on Thursday. His recovery is nothing short of miraculous. Once again, we thank everyone who prayed, encouraged, supported, cared, helped, etc. We could not have made it through without you.
I have not been able to make it to the Art Department. (Well, duh.) My friend Linda took care of my pieces — did what she could to save my work in progress. I really appreciate her doing that for me. I hope to get back this week.
We spoke to our very emotional other granddaughter (Ashley), who is expecting soon–early January. She has had a terrible cold and has not felt well for several weeks. The two great-granddaughters and her husband have also had similar issues. It has been hard for them, and to know their grandpa has been so ill was devastating. Tears flowed freely–I think they were tears of joy combined with a feeling of great relief. We cannot wait to see them again–hope it can be soon.
