Hi! :hello:

Some of you may notice that I've been gone a long time, but have popped back in. Without going through all the gory details, my absence is on account of some trauma in my life for the last couple years and some big changes. I've recently had to move away from my home...a matter of life and death. That's the long and short of it. But now things have leveled out, after a bout of PTSD, I'm back on track. And in fact, my new digs are a tremendous improvement over the last, including my brand new house and my new town. I'm making tons of friends in my new neighborhood, mostly full of retirees. And having lots of fun hiking with my dogs and discovering new adventures. I'm simply ecstatic. I simply couldn't spend time on PF or deal with it during a devastating loss and high stress associated with and leading up to it. I hope you don't mind that I'm back...probably can't spend inordinate amounts of time here, as I'm pretty immersed in other activities. But I have missed some of you and wanted to come back and say, "Hi." And maybe be included in some of the discussions. Thanks for putting up with me. :)

Oh, so glad to hear you are back. I always worry that when members are missing that their poodles have gone over the bridge. Whew, your boys are way too young to think about doing that!

Thank you so much for such a warm welcome. Molly, I will post pictures of the two little lover boys one of these days. They're about due for a hair cut so I'll wait till they look good for Molly. I wouldn't want to scare her away. :ahhhhh:

Charmed...yes, they're too young. Hopefully they'll stick around for a few more years. They'll be 6 though in May. It's incredible how fast time flies with these guys. :airplane:

Murfur, thanks. I am indeed having lots of luck...went out to lunch yesterday with a couple of neighbors here and got a fortune in a cookie that said, "now is the time to make new friends." And it's just so accurate in what's happening. This neighborhood is unlike any I've ever lived in. We women get together every month for a neighborhood luncheon. We take turns arranging what restaurant, time, date etc. It's up to the person who's doing it that month. I've already had a tea party and a few other kinds of get togethers. One other couple and I go go each other's house for drinks or dinner. (I never drank so much until I moved here. LOL) Anyhow, it's an exceedingly friendly town and very community minded. Thank you for your kind words.

VQ...thank you for your warm wishes and for being accepting with my schedule. lol. I do a lot of outdoor activities which take up lots of time....stuff with my dogs. And I bought a bike so I love riding that all over the place.

Glorybee...thank you. Very nice to see you and hope all is well with everyone. I have indeed missed hanging out here and glad to be welcomed back so nicely.

(((hugs)))

Welcome back PB!

I have drifted away as well, life just pulls us in different directions sometimes.

I’m happy to hear that things are back on the right track and you are enjoying the new life you are living. I have always wondered how you were doing as you were very active and your posts very helpful when I brought Shae home nearly two years ago.

Keep the positive vibes going :)

Hi Galofpink! I am glad you are still here even if not as frequently. How are you and Shae doing anyhow? Has it really been that long? My goodness, time flies. I sure hope to see you around, at least a little bit. LOL. Thanks for your nice post. :angel:

Yes it really has been that long - time does fly.

We are doing pretty well! Thanks for asking :) Shae’s still a very naughty dog by times but I love her dearly and can’t imagine life with out her. Much better than the beginning days when I hated every inch of her being (my issues really, not hers) lol - oh how times change!

Awwwwww....that's so good to read. Isn't it funny how time changes things and how these creatures have a way of worming their way into our hearts? I know what you mean. Matisse is full of shenanigans too...big time mischief maker.

I'm so glad you two have bonded so well. I knew you would. Haha.
