I've been gone from this site for over a year...thought I was permanently "gone" when my old computer died and I had to obtain a new one. Hello to Maltese Mom, James, Molly and everyone. Ceili, my Shih-Tzu/Maltese mix is doing just fine. Best, Helen

Around one year ago, a woman in my neighborhood lost her small Italian Greyhound. She was new to Buffalo then. I have never seen such dedication and perseverance in trying to find a lost pet. She placed ads, posters, online posts, classified ads, bulletin boards, etc. everywhere looking for him. At one point I emailed her to say I would be on the lookout.

I've been on sick leave for the past two weeks. At first Ceili seemed bewildered--why was I home ALL the time??? But then I believe she figured it out. More puppy kisses! More lap time! And she was a most gracious hostess to to the visiting nurse and physical therapist! I'm returning to work on Monday. I think I'd better leave the house for a few hours today and tomorrow so she can get used to being "off duty"!
