Once again, something unexpected has come up which takes me from the blog. My husband and I have been struggling with the "illness" of one of our dogs. I put "illness" in quotations because she hasn't been acting sick at all, but since April she's lost close to 20 pounds and one day last week we discovered that she has a large growth on / near / around her liver.
Struggling comes in the form of multiple visits to the vet last week (including a second opinion) to ultimately lead us to Pittsburgh today. We had a scheduled appointment today, but didn't do much other than talk to one of the surgeons there. We were to have an ultrasound done, but the doctors who do those were gone for the day so we had no choice but to leave her there over night and make the trip back home without her.
Luckily this hasn't been long and drawn-out; however, its about all we can handle for right now and we won't be able to breathe until we hear from the doctor tomorrow after the ultrasound and, ultimately, after the probable surgery. We've been hoping for the best, but expecting the worst although the surgeon we spoke to today has been the most optimistic out of everyone and until we get the call and make the trip to pick her up, we'll be missing and sad for our little Sabrina (along with her sister and brother - Sadie and Benji)!!
So now you guys know why I haven't been posting much last and this week. I apologize, but sometimes things take precedence and this is one of those times ... I will be back up to speed hopefully sooner rather than later!!

Holding Out for A Hero Bonnie Tyler (HftL's Theme Song)
Where have all the good men gone
And where are all the gods?
Where's the street-wise Hercules
To fight the rising odds?
Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and turn and dream of what I need
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
He's gotta be strong
And he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
He's gotta be sure
And it's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life
Somewhere after midnight
In my wildest fantasy
Somewhere just beyond my reach
There's someone reaching back for me
Racing on the thunder end rising with the heat
It's gonna take a superman to sweep me off my feet
Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning splits the sea
I would swear that there's someone somewhere
Through the wind end the chill and the rain
And the storm and the flood
I can feel his approach
Like the fire in my blood
