I Could Use A Good Laugh

Please send me jokes and funny things, I could use a good laugh right now. Shiloh, MY Shiloh, is wearing down fast. Shiloh is one of those "once in a lifetime" dogs. I have so many wonderful stories to tell about Shiloh.

Right now he has me worried. I'm afraid of what the vet is going to tell me. I can't take another loss. I don't mean to compare losing my mother to losing Shiloh. There is nothing like a mother. However, Shiloh has been with me through thick and thin, we've had him about ten years now. He slept over at Dad's with us when Mom passed away. I don't know who he gave more comfort to, me or my dad, but it was such a blessing to have his tender heart hovering over us that night. I'm not ready to tell Shiloh goodbye.

Each day Shiloh's health diminishes. I'm hoping the vet will put him on arthritis medication, but his back legs keep collapsing, and I'm not so sure that it is just arthritis. Will you pray for my boy? And send me something to make me laugh. I could use a good laugh right now.

Oh no not shiloh. I was just putting up some pictures from when we visited and saw the puppies and stuff. We all love Shiloh, he is the sweetest dog I have ever met and I have met a lot of dogs!

I'll be praying for Shiloh. He looks like a beautiful dog. I keep telling Andy as soon as we buy a house I want a dog. He's trying to talk me into getting a cat instead. It's a sore spot in our marriage. ha ha.
