Camera Critters...a tribute to a very special little Corgi, Milli

My little Milli was attacked by a cougar last month, in my front yard in the evening.
This was just 10 days after I lost my mother, which is it's own post on my other blog, Jan's Place.

We live in the country, and in a moment of time (in the dark of night) the predator took her to the 5 acre partial behind ours.

My other corgi Oscar, led me the direction she was taken. With his escalated barking for her, and my continued calling and scanning with a flashlight in the direction I thought she was, she slowly crawled out of the heavy swampy woods. She was in heavy shock and severely injured.

I think it is a miracle that I was even able to get her back.

We rushed her to the emergency vet, to try to save her. Milli was hurt so horribly that after taken into surgery, they could not save her.

I needed to provide this information, as this is a special post for me... Milli was a very special little dog.

Please see Camera Critters for other critter posts.

Oh, these are really small flowers (below) in real life. I love the yellow in the middle of the tiny flower, and the leaves are like thin paper.

FYI ...Internet Issues, due to change in "Clear" service!

We are being effected by a change in our ability to use our Internet, since Clear "updated" their modems.

As you may have noticed...this has effected my ability to blog, and especially to comment. The little icon just spins and spins!

Does anyone out in the land of blog use either Hughes Satellite Internet or Wildblue? If so, please provide us with your feedback!

Clear sent out their tech person, who said we will not see improvements, and that those of us on the "fringe area" of their coverage are seeing a negative effect to the changes they have made. Gee, really? We do not have any other options such as Comcast, or Verizon FiOs. Living in the "country" has some challenges for sure!

This is so frustrating, try paying your online bills, with no online to pay them from!
So... I miss my blogging friends for now, and will be back as soon as we have something that will work! Jan :)
