My sister had her new baby on Canada Day.  He weighed in at 7 lbs 8oz.  A cute little boy.  I cannot wait to meet him this weekend.  I have only seen him in pictures.

Around here things have been crazy.  My dog Taffee who is 11yrs was just diagnosed with bladder cancer.  We always thought that she would outlive our other dog Koeywon who is also 11 yrs.  We are unable to do surgery because of the part of her bladder the tumor is, also it would cost upwards of $10 000 and we just do not have that kind of money.  We are giving her pain medication and watching her closely for any changes.  My poor baby!  We have only had her for 7 yrs.  Before we adopted her from absentee owners we think that she was abused because she has fear of people and severe separation anxiety.  7 good years is better then 1000 bad ones.

Ter our 8 months old has stopped gaining weight.  We had to take him in for blood work yesterday.  It was awful!  They wrap him up in a blanket then hold down his arm and take blood...real slow because his veins are so small!  I am so grateful that hubby Q came with me becuase I would not have been able to do it myself!

This past weekend we went camping in Sylvan Lake.  It was so much fun.  We actually stayed in Gull Lake just 20 min away.  Cy played at the beach until 9pm with some other kids he had met there.  Ter loved camping...being outside in all the fresh air.  I also fit in a 12.8km run as part of my half marathon training.  My feet were killing me after!  They feel much better now with having 2 days off of running.  That was the farthest that I have ever run before.
