Good news!

All is well!

As you can see Mr. Ripley is just fine....
(do you see him behind me?)

We took him in at 9:00 and 
Mike and Beth waited until it 
was over in the waiting room.
They got to see him right away -- 
however he was sleeping.

He came home early in the afternoon
and Beth and I took really good care of
him for the rest of the day.

Thank you for all the prayers....
I know that is why
things went so well!

He is a brave little man....

I love him so much....

Thank you for all of the 
Birthday wishes --
everyone is so kind....

I really appreciated it!

I wanted to show you what
else happened on my birthday....

 Mr. Mike, the mailman, brought
me a card and a package!

The card was from my good
friend Madi!
(click on her name to see her awesome blog!)  
She and her mommy are SO talented!

Thank you Queen Madi!

And the package was from
my friends in Maryland --
Annie and Oakley!
They are Newfoundlands like
me -- but no relation, just great friends!
And their mommy Amy helped 
them get it all ready for me!
Isn't that sweet?

I opened it carefully....

And MUCH to my surprise there 
were LOTS of toys and treats in there!

They even sent Beth a gift!

It's a magnet with a fairy and 
Newfoundland on it!

Isn't that cool?  
She LOVED it!

Thanks Madi, Annie, Oakley and Amy
for the great surprise!  You made my 
special day even more special!

Now to try and figure out which one to play
with first....

FYI -- the treats were AWESOME!

Later -- Remington --
a blessed Newfie....
-- out!
