This is What Happens When a Very Caring...

daughter won't leave you alone to cry the day away after you lose your dog...and instead INSISTS on going to the beauty salon...all day long!

Yes - it is true.. I got my hair cut, lost the extensions and had it dyed auburn!Don liked it so much, he took these pictures of me before we went to see my Dad...just so I could post them on my blog! Sweet boy!!

I think I will call it my Mid-Life Dog Crisis!

Julie, what a wonderful daughter, she knew just what you needed. Love your new look and your header with Chrissy is so very sweet. When you have time, and feel up to it, could we have an update on Roman? I'd love to see him now. I'm the one that was smitten with him and have him on my computer wallpaper.

You look totally amazing with you new haircut and style. How nice of your daughter to sweep you away for a day of pampering.

I'm so sorry that you lost your dog -- I have an unopened box of K9 Advantix -- I was nervous about using it even before I read your experience with Chrissy.

What a nice and thoughtful thing God bless daughters!
I am so sorry to hear about Chrissy's fate, I cried when I read the post. Godspeed to her now, and to you for healing.
Have a good Monday,
Leslie

This is one of the most amazing transformations EVER! You look amazing, refreshed, many years younger! I know you are still filled with pain and anguish ... please take care of yourself.

I agree with Joy... 10 years gone.. with the blade of the sheers..

Look sophisticated just like you are.

Ginger said...

Love the new look. You look like a different person with red hair.
Hope you are feeling a little better today.

Jill said...

What an amazing daughter you have. I'm glad you went for a bit of bonding. Your readers, especially this one cried for you. You look stunning but then I'm partical to the color being a redhead myself (wink and grin) Enjoy your father's company, he might even wolf whistle, and hug your sweet husband as the image captured is piano worthy as my grams used to say.

Julie,

"Certainly no loving God would separate people from their canine friends for eternity."

I feel certain Stanley Coren is right about this.

Hi

Me again. Just came back to suggest you change your profile photo to the "new" you with the new "do".

Also, I noticed that for some reason I've never signed up to "follow" you. ??? Weird. So I did that too.

Hugs!
Kat

The loss of a pet is very hard....it will take some time. What a wonderful and caring daughter.
