  11. Hey Mercedes,

    A guestbook, how cool! Stopping by to say Hi, and checking back for an update on Patch. Link or direct me if you’ve already posted. Wondering how the test came out. Let Patch know I woofed by too to see the latest and greatest on how he’s doing. Later.

    Hey! Glad to have you back! Check my Dogs Page to see all of Patch’s posts. Then you can see where you left off. He is doing good right now~waiting on new results: today or tomorrow! Patch woofs back at ya!

  12. Hi Mercedes and Patches,
    I like the idea of a guest book and love your blog.
    Gina, Tuffy and Mandy

    Thank You! Three WOOFS for you!

  13. Hi Mercedes and Patch,

    I too, adore dogs. I’m dogless at the moment – but not for too much longer I don’t think. Every day I go walking and make a beeline for any dog I see out walking its human. I miss being walked by a dog – now I have to do it on my own. Nowhere near as much stopping to sniff everything though 🙂

    Hello! I can’t wait for you to get a dog companion! I believe it will help you on your journey through life! Dogs are great! Always there for you! Thanks for signing my guestbook!

  14. A guestbook signature in haiku:

    beast spotted; black, white
    zebra, albino cheetah?
    sweet dog; Mercedes’

    Aaaahhhhh~I love it! Thanks for coming over here & signing! WOOF!

  15. Hey Mercedes – still waiting to hear about Patch, keeping him in my prayers and hoping for good news! Love reading your blog! Take care : )

    Hey Patty! Me too~still waiting. Hopefully tomorrow and if not~hopefully-definitely Monday! I’m glad you like it here! When are you gonna join us in blogland? You realy should! *hugs to you* WOOF!

  16. Hey Mercedes, love your guestbook! Love your blog,
    Love your pics, just loves you girl!

    Angie 🙂

    Girl! Gonna make me cry *sniff*! Me loves you too, chicadee! I visit your place often, but sometimes I can’t understand the lingo~remember, I am still in Kindergarten-LOL! WOOF!

  17. Hey Mercedes, just doing as asked. Your blog is a lot of fun and it’s nice to see how much you care for your friends, family and for Patch! 🙂 Hugs!

    Thanks for stopping by and signing my Guest Book! I love your stories about your family and especially your pictures~beautiful! WOOF!

  18. Love your site

    Thank You! Please, drop by anytime!

  19. Hi Mercedes,
    And just how IS Patch doing? Better, I hope! You sure have scouted out a lot of cute canine stories, pics, and videos for your blog. Do you have school this week? We are on our mid-winter break.

    We are still waiting for the lymph node biopsy~hopefully tomorrow. He is currently not on any meds and is doing great at the moment. I guess you could say we had our mid-winter break last week-lol. We got out of school on Wednesday for snow and Thursday and Friday for sickness. Of course, Monday is a holiday. We supposedly go back on Tuesday, Feb. 19, but there is snow in the forecast for Monday night-lol! Yeah~I believe my blog has turned into a Dog Blog-hehe. Thanks for stopping by! Have a great break!

  20. Hi Mercedes,
    Just stopped by to have a look around … I’ll be back to read more about Patch! Our furbaby, Bud, is … well … he’s our baby!!

    Hey Marvie! Glad you stopped by! Isn’t it great we have pets that are REALLY our babies?! Please come back by~love to have you here! WOOF!

  21. Hello Mercedes,
    Thank you for adding me to your “Blogs I Visit,” and I’m glad you visit my blog. I used to teach too. I taught science and math to 3rd-6th graders part-time for two years (I loved it) and now I homeschool our son. I wish I could join you for NaBloPoMo in March, but I foresee a busy month. Maybe April or May! I like your Guest Book idea. People used to do that on their websites before the days of blogging, but I don’t see it on blogs. It really fills a need for when we have a comment, but not for a specific post. It builds community too. 🙂

    Sorry it took me so long to reply. Not sure how I missed you! You have a wonderful site! I like the Guest Book idea too. That is how I use someone else’s~when I just want to comment, but not on a particular post! That’s great that you used to be a teacher. Hope to see you at NaBloPoMo in some future months!

  22. Hi Mercedes! Just popping by to say hi since I had a minute. Glad to hear that Patch’s diagnosis is good and hoping that he is feeling better soon! Take care, Vampy

    Thanks for stopping by! Glad to have you anytime! I just finished my candy yesterday-yummy! Patch seems to be doing great. I am gonna take him to New Doc for a bath, nails clipped, and certain glands squeezed-fun-fun. Hope to find out more about what the next step is. He seems almost back to his 100% self minus a few things, but I believe these come along with age-he is 11 years old. Happy Leap Day! Have a great weekend!

  23. Love the guest book idea.

    I am a SAHM of two gorgeous little girls. My hubby is gorgeous as well. We live in Utah, and I will be 31 this year. I love to run and I am currently training for the Boston Marathon.
    The End

    Thanks for coming over! My brother and sister-in-law run in marathons too! I had a ball at your party! Still cracking up-lol! Good Luck to you!

  24. OT: When’s your birthday???

    What does OT mean-on topic? April 11~btw! LYMI!

  25. OFF topic. LOL

    LYMI too =)

    What did I say? On Topic? LOL! Whew rough week! LYMI!

  26. Ok, how do I work this thing? How do I sign up? I’ve been missing you girl! I hope your doing well. Luv ya!

    Woohoo~hey chicadee! I was thinking about you last night-I’ve been missing you too! You should start a blog here-in your spare time-LOL! I need to check out your site too. LYMI! (Love Ya! Mean It!~the one good thing I got my looney aunt T) ROFL!

  27. Hey Mercedes!
    Hello from Kentucky! Found your site through the blog party. Neat idea with the guest book!

    Thanks neighbor! I couldn’t find your site?? Come on back anytime! I finally found you-woohoo (3-15-08)

  28. Did I ever tell you I really love the dog themed headings all over your site? Well, I do. It’s very original! I especially like “Paw Prints” and “Latest Woofs.” So cute! Keep up the good work! 😀

    Thank you! Thank you very much! You are the first to comment on this!

  29. Hey, are you going somewhere? You popped over to say goodbye. (Or is it because I’ve lurked but not posted here?)

    Bad Kemi.

    Well-I didn’t know you were a lurker-lol, but you sure haven’t made your presence known. I thought I must have done something to tick you off. Thought maybe things were said elsewhere and people got the wrong idea about me or something. Must be my paranoid self-because I know I wasn’t ever involved in any of the drama! No drama for this mama! So if you lurk-you can take a minute to say wassup…or maybe my posts are too boring-lol! I still know it was you in the garden with the Lotus and Bamboo Spritzer!

  30. Babe, you aren’t the only one living in your own world… my problem is, I spend a lot of time re-introducing myself every time I go there. *snort*

    I will be sure to shout out every now and then.

    And every time you get a whiff of Lotus and Bamboo, you’ll know I was here.

    Re-introducing yourself-ROFL! I miss our chats from way back and I would like to here from you now and again! Don’t be a stranger-just an occasional spritz every now and again would be nice-lol!

  31. Hi Mercedes!

    Thank you for your thoughts in regards to my Mom.

    Have a great day!

    You are welcome! Bless you on this day! You are in my thoughts today!

  32. Hi Mercedes
    So here I am,
    it’s me
    Signing the guest book
    Am I supposed to leave a message after the Beep???
    I’m still waiting for the beep……

    still waiting…….


    I think your beep is broken……
    OK no beep….
    I’ll just leave a smile then

    SPLORFING while eating cereal for lunch! AFLAC! I can’t stop laughing-if someone walks by my classroom-they are gonna think I am crazy loco-ROFL!

  33. Hi Mer! Just wanted you to know I emailed you about your blog question. 🙂 I saw you have a blogger blog, too. Cool! 😀

    Thanks so much! I should have just emailed you~duh! Yeah I have a blogger blog but I just use it to point people here when I comment on blogger blogs! Thanks for the info! Much appreciated!

  34. I don’t have a blogspot blog, but I do have an account 🙂 That way I can follow comments that way.

    That is why I have it too~but I did go ahead and create a page directing people here if they go over there via my comments. Nothing special.

  41. Hi! Just wanted to let you know that I stopped by. I’m new to the world of blogging so I am cruising through as many as I can. I retired from teaching middle school last year and am a part time MK consultant. A couple of days ago I just started my first blog–My Daughter’s Wedding. Hope your vacation is great. I’ve been to those places and they are lovely!
