First Facebook Ad

Well I placed my first Facebook ad. Will now wait and see what happens and if I want to do another one. I'm still waiting on the 'galley' copy of Evangeline's Miracle to see if there is anything that needs to be corrected. Hopefully that will come tomorrow.

I have been a bit behind in posting, in being on the internet today. Our dog, Laydi, who has been with us for 12, going on 13 years is passing. Her kidney's are failing. It is very hard to say goodbye to her. My son came back from North Carolina to see her, to be with her in her last days, and my daughter is in grief on the other side of the ocean, terribly sad she can't be here with her favorite 'puppy'. Laydi is so sweet-natured that we always called her our puppy no matter she's as old as a granny now. As the the vet says, she's "a little old person" but she doesn't 'feel' like it to us... This is such a sad time. When my kids flew away, I thought, at least I/we still have Laydi-girl. Now it looks likes she's flying away too. I don't know how many of you out there have dogs. I have had cats most of my life. Laydi was/is my first experience with a dog. She was kind, gentle, the perfect dog for our family. She fit, was a missing piece that filled our hearts, and, I must say, our house with fur! Being half border collie and half black lab, she shed like an old wool blanket, like, all over the place!!! We shaved her often because of it, especially living in the south. Our kids started saying it was a gift from Laydi every time they found a little hair in food. Laydi definitely made it necessary to vacuum A LOT!
I loved reading "Marley and Me", which made me realize that even with the fur everywhere, with the (very limited) barking and "putting up" with having an animal in the house, she was an angel of a dog. She made us happy, was always glad when we came home, let us know when she was mad, and made her mark on us.
Our girl Laydi, 2009.
I miss her already. She can hardly move now, she looks at us with tired eyes, and I hate having to make the decision to let her go. I know I'm not the first to go through this and won't by any means be the last, but like any first time, I'll never have another first dog. Laydi-girl, I love you.
