I don't give a damn 'bout my reputation,
You're living in the past it's a new generation,
A girl can do what she wants to do and that's what I'm gonna do,
An' I don't give a damn ' bout my bad reputation.
Oh no, not me.
- - - -
And that concludes the 2010 edition of 52 Weeks for Dogs!!! I hope I was able to capture her personality - or do I say personalities ...
I was inspired by the group, and the support when we were going through tough times, and by what happens in my life just by waking up each day. Thank you for all the comments and she made 4 Explore front Pages - crazy! It was a year of ups and downs, and for a few weeks there I wasn't sure I would have a last photo to post. I am in the process of making Jane's book and it is extra special this year with all we've been through.
Jane is tough as nails, and yet, sweet as sugar. Long live the Queen!!!!
AND .... Stay tuned for more 52 Weeks for Dogs ... 2011 is Kaleb's year ... lord help me.

Gyp is going for her 2 week re-check today with Dr. Devall - she will have any adjustment she needs, acupuncture and some cold laser ... and we will see if there has been any improvement. We've been doing our exercises and her range of motion in the back left is getting better already, which I am thrilled about. Hopefully the Chinese Herbs and massage have been helping too. She gets massage twice a day and does her exercises twice a day also. I ice 2x10 minutes after her runs to help with any possible inflammation - I also ice my knee :)

Gyp she enjoyed her self none the less ... especially when she would knaw on the metal fence and then wedged her body through a 4x4 inch square in the fencing to get to the sheep ...
The lovely Lad ...

my spunky monkey is feeling better!
jane is doing great again, this CHF is not a fun thing to deal with. The extra couple injections seemed to do the trick to get the fluid off her lungs, and her meds are now increased to the max doses, and she is stable again ... she is spunky, still eating her home cooked meals as ferocious as ever of course - that never changed. She still loses her breath - but not as bad as last week, and it will never be perfect because of her disease, so we have to be careful she doesn't over do it.
We've nicked named her "lil weezy".
thanks for all the nice comments and thoughts about jane - i truly think the universe spoke to her! We are so relieved, we just take things day by day.
p.s. I have never denied that I am a little odd, in fact I define it as one of my best points :)

... in our faux fur :)
and equally bitter about the bitter -30c temperature.
Jane was looking for a new home last week when it turned stupid cold, well it hasn't let up yet, I think she was on to something.
Anyone want to adopt me?? Sometimes I wonder why the hell we live here.
So, like every good Canadian, I'll just bundle up: put on my longjohnns, -40c Sorels, a warm toque.... and suck it up until it warms up.

a simple portrait this week, and like all portraits of royalty, a good profile shot is a must in one's collection.
A good friend of mine is an amazing and accomplished Artist, and I am lucky enough to have a few of her paintings - I wanted to showcase one with Jane :)

This week was Gyp's first Therapy Dog session. It was not what I expected. I thought "oh, this will be a fun thing to do together, Gyp loves people, and I love seeing people smile when they meet any of my dogs".

It is November, but our weather has been amazing, +20C today, it feels like spring, I wish it was. I actually had to stop to think what time of year it was.
Jane has lots of pep in her step with this nice weather, and today we went to the woods, and she had fun exploring and looking critters.
I wonder how long it will be until my photos have snow in them ... I hope a while :)

Happy HELLoween, from Jane and the Hounds of Hell.
We didn't dress up this year, but I wanted to do something fun. I loved telling ghost stories as a kid, you know, with the flashlight under the chin.
Are you arfraid?
