Fun with Precious

Fun with Precious
So sorry I've been MIA for the last few weeks. I've been staying at my Mother's while she recovers from double pneumonia. So many of you have written to ask how my mother is doing. She is finally off her antibiotics & slowly improving each day. Thanks so much for all your kind words, calls, cards, & especially all the prayers. They have really helped perk her up! She feels very special & very loved.

Luckily I have stayed well. I missed posting on Valentine's Day, but did want to share my everyday "sweetheart" with all of you. Her name is Precious & she is my mother's little Shih Tzu. Never has there been 11 lbs. of sweeter pure love than this! Precious is my bed partner each night while I'm here.......And she is the reason I'm posting at 2am!!

We are having some big old TX sized thunderstorms rolling in right now & she is terrified of storms, so we are up & on the 'puter for a bit. Celeste, dear, I'm thinking of you & Ms. Beazy right now!! Hope you are getting more rest than we are!

Please leave a comment letting Mother know how cute her little dog is!!! She doesn't know I'm posting this pic & I think she will get a kick out of reading the comments as they come in!

Big Hugs,

Have you seen Heather's (pretty petals) dog Jada? She is gorgeous too, they are quite similar.
Hope your mom recovers well and give Precious a huge cuddle from across the oceans!

Steph, so glad you are back to posting you have been missed.

that little "Precious" is so cute. My Abby is sitting here going dog, dog, Arf. she gets mad cause she can't touch him.

Tell you sweet mom, I am thinking and praying for her everyday and for you also. Give "Precious" a hug too from me and Abby.

Oh my Gosh, Steph! She is soooo adorable!! Just look at those eyes that are saying, "Antie Steph, please make those loud noises go away." What a doll. No wonder her name is Precious! Prayers continue for your sweet mom and her health issues. So glad to hear she is feeling a little better. Hugs you and to her from me.

First , hugs to Mom and to you Steph for being such a good caretaker. Glad to hear she is on the mend. And a big hug to that cutie patootie Precious. What a sweetie. Tell her I don't like storms either! lol.

Katie said...

Steph we have sure missed you posting! Hi to Mom, tell her for me she has THE most beautiful name, which I won't post without your permission of course. Precious is just that, oh my, I'd have to be making her little quilts to sleep on, and paint roses on little hats, how fun she must be to cuddle with. Tell your Mom we are so glad our prayers were heard and she is on the mend. Katie

Sharon said...

Hi Steph, Precious is just the sweetest little pup I've ever seen. I can see you are taking good care of her and Mom. Prayers to all of you!!!! When my friend comes to visit she brings her Shih Tzu, I just love their sweet little faces! I miss her when they leave.
Thank you for sharing with us!!

Hi Steph and Mom, Your little Precious is a little darling. What a sweet bundle to curl up with too. I hope she is not too sacred in the storms like Ms. Beazy is. We are having the same storms and our sweetheart stayed under the bed all night.

Mom, so glad you are feeling better. Take care and rest. Big hugs to you!! Smiles!~

Hugs, Celestina,

Think Precious would like to play with my kitties?!? I guess not! Not with MY kitties.LOL Such a sweetie! Through blogging I met a gal who is a Creative Memories lady, she's great, even came to my house to help me a bit...very easy program! I need someone I can call when I get stuck learning, shes there for me.And not all that expesive like Photoshop and yet it will do a lot of the same things. Glad your mom is recovering! Take care, Laurie said...
