Happy, Scrappy January 3!


My Fire tablet just reminded me that I took this picture on January 3 — in 2015. Has it been five years already?

That’s our small standard poodle, Scrappy. My husband and I found him when he was still a puppy in April 2014, abandoned on a highway, starved almost to death, injured, and covered with over 30 ticks and mites. Today we don’t have any snow here in our part of New Mexico, but we still have our Scrappy. And he is still just as Scrappy, in every sense of the word.

Happy January 3. I hope your day is joyful! πŸ˜€

PS: For recent pictures of Scrappy and our other fur child, with my husband and me, see this post: https://ablogabouthealingfromptsd.wordpress.com/2020/01/03/recent-pictures-of-my-hubby-and-me-with-our-fur-children/

      Congratulations on almost finishing your latest book! I’m looking forward to reading it.

      I have a really cute picture of Scrappy that I took on Christmas eve. I just have to figure out how to download photos from my new phone. My old phone was so easy, but this new smart phone is smarter than me. Sigh..

        Thanks. It will be a while before it hits the market though. I have to find a publisher first.

          Hey, Sue! I figured out a quick way to get pictures from my phone to my computer. I sent the pictures in text form to my husband’s phone, and he sent them to me in an email. Yaay! So I posted up to date pictures of not just Scrappy, but our big dog, too, and my husband and me, as well. Thanks for the suggestion to post an updated picture. I made it into a new post: https://ablogabouthealingfromptsd.wordpress.com/2020/01/03/recent-pictures-of-my-hubby-and-me-with-our-fur-children/

          Have you ever thought of self-publishing Sue? I have several books I have self-published on KDP and it is not all that difficult. Once published there, they are automatically listed on Amazon. I am also going to publish them on IngramSparks so that they can be available to actual bookstores (not that they will actually stock them but they can be ordered through their catalog).

            Hi Successebmine:
            Yes, all of my books are self published with self publishing publishers. They automatically go on amazon plus books stores, Ingram, can be translated in foreign countries, etc. This is #9 and hopefully this will be finished in the next few days. I keep thinking this is the “last chapter” but the Lord sure seems to have a different agenda. πŸ™‚ Thanks for your suggestion and blessings to you with your books. That’s fantastic.

      Yes he is! And when we first found him, he was just a little scrap of a thing. But he’s a scrappy survivor!

    Thank you. Scrappy is a blessing. A little over a year after we found him, my stepdaughter and I found a big mystery mix dog, probably a yellow lab, German shepherd, boxer, and maybe some pitbull mix. She was also abandoned, half-starved, living on the streets. We took her home and my stepdaughter named her Baby. Now Baby is a robust 70 pounds, Scrappy is a healthy 20 pounds, and they get along great. They are our fur children, which we needed, because all our kids are grown.
